Last weekend I left town on for the place I grew up in (Walla Walla) and realized that I would be neglecting those that subscribe to my site. I often have asked people to not address me as a "blogger" since this often emotes thoughts on uneducated, unedited, and often rumor inspired 'news'. However the caveat with writing on a website that is mostly without a consistent structure is that I cannot shake the term since I am its sole contributor. So, like those that return from vacation I too have many items to catch up on.
For now I will accept the hapless overused term of 'blogger' for now but only until I have caught up on what's going on near you.
