Don't Get Me Started

I have now been blogging for thirteen months, concentrating mostly on my emotional, spiritual, and professional life. During this time, I have consciously eschewed writing directly about politics, the war in Iraq, and other sociopolitical and economic issues. There are so many people writing and blogging quite wonderfully and eruditely about these subjects, and I have felt strongly that my writing would simply pale in comparison. That said, a persistent and troublesome desire to record my thoughts on "politricks and the shitstem" (as Bob Marley called them) has again resurfaced, and I am reconsidering the creation of a blog simply as a place where I can vent my frustrations with the state of the world, the Bush Administration, the war in Iraq, the War on Terror, the Injustice System, and the duplicitously vile nature of American government and diplomacy.

Deciding whether I have the time and energy for such an undertaking is paramount. I also must consider whether or not my thoughts on these subjects, a) have some traction and interest for others, b) are worthy of such energy output, and, c) are a compelling reason to do such a thing. The jury is still out, but I thought I would share the idea......

A possible name for said imaginary blog---Don't Get Me Started---has been on my mind for some time. I'll think on this for a while, maybe even write a few potential entries, and then decide whether or not to take the plunge and start another site. If any of you out there have advice or input on the vicissitudes and rewards of running more than one site, please do chime in.

Until then, stay tuned.....
