‘Do you have any sponsorship or intern opportunities for reduced admission in exchange for volunteer hours?’ ‘No, but there’s a raffle to refund one admission fee.’ ‘Sigh.’ Update: The refund raffle has ended. The new special is a two drinks at a Nashville bar. Even bigger sigh.

One year later

If you take one year off from your blog to decide if it should continue, then you may find yourself posting heavily on every other social media outlet. Lesson learned. In news that is far more interesting than dusting off my blog, there’s this:
