So…What Happened?

Well, hello there! How are you? Me? Well, busy and…really absent from this sight. It’s been over three years since I’ve posted anything of real relevance here. There have been a number of reasons for that, first and foremost being other work, both writing and otherwise. I’ll have more on the writing side in later posts (provided I don’t neglect this site again, which is always possible), but for now I’m just trying out this blogging thing again. Flexing the muscles as it were.

If I’m being completely honest, being busy is only part of the reason I’ve been away so long. After six years of pouring everything I had into running Pop Culture Zoo and making an effort to make it into something real, it basically failed in a pretty spectacular fashion. That is a hard truth that has probably taken a long time for me to come to grips with. I renamed the site and had fully intended to make it more of a personal blog, but, as has been evident, that didn’t really go to plan.

So, here I am, once again making a go of it. I have no idea what I will write about, other than talking about the various projects I have coming out and possibly posting some excerpts for other things I have in progress. We’ll see. For now, even just this one post feels good to write and I think regular blogging will help with regularly writing in other areas. Practice is a good thing. Welcome back again to What Joe Writes!
