[WriYe Blog Circle] New Year, New Me

For some reason, my ability to consistently maintain a blog is less reliable than my ability to write every day (which is pretty unreliable for half of the year). So here I am, restarting again with promises of weekly blogs and that I won’t fall away from it on my tongue (fingers?), but I will …
