I'm certainly not quitting this blog or something--in fact what I'm saying now won't change anything in practice--but I do find myself having a lot less to say. It's frustrating because I feel like when I don't update regularly, people stop reading, but I don't want to just write a lot of posts that I haven't thought through. I also feel uncomfortable about writing a lot of posts with very personal information, partly because I guess I feel like it's unwise when I use my real name on this blog, but also because I always prided myself on writing a blog that was more based in ideas than in my personal experience (even though my experience has always been an element).
When I started this blog, which was about a year and a half ago, I was overflowing with things to say about disability that I had not been able to express, and had not heard other people say either. I would wake up in the morning and know what I was going to write about, and several times a day I would experience the feeling again. For probably eight months it was like this, but it hasn't been like that for a while.
I still definitely learn and have experiences and realize things and get ideas, but there isn't anything built up anymore really--new stuff comes in at its ordinary and fairly slow rate. Don't leave please.
