Blog: a Web site that contains online personal reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer; also : the contents of such a site
This blog began in May of 2011 on Columbia Patch, and moved to Blogger in October of the same year. Since then I have written 506 posts. I am still working to get better at what I do--3 years and 143,913 pageviews later. I began to write in order to relate my experiences of becoming a part of Columbia and Howard County life: what does it all mean if you didn't grow up here? How do I fit in?
If anything has changed about that mission it can be found in this post: "WWDD?" (May 31, 2013.) From that day forward every post I have written has been to honor Dennis Lane, and in some small way, to carry on his work and his love for our community.
This blog contains personal reflections, comments, and hyperlinks. I write about what I care about. I am extremely careful to post only what I know to be the truth. I will sometimes make mistakes and I am usually pretty good about admitting and correcting them.
I encourage discussion in the comments section but I have no patience for trolling, or really any kind of nastiness. It is my preference that people post under their own names. I stand by my word every time I post, and so should you, if you choose to engage here.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for engaging. Thank you for caring about the topics that I care about.
