I try to remind myself of that motto, frequently. And sometimes I take risks that others would consider foolish. Sometimes I try things just for the sake of trying them, to see if they’ll work. Sometimes I don’t look before I leap. Sometimes I don’t plan things out as well as I should’ve.
But I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than the things I haven’t done. So there.
And with that build up, here’s my apology. This week I’ve been messing around with the blog a lot. Trying to figure out how to make it work better. Trying to make it as good as it can be. And in that process I feel I made some hasty decisions. All of those subtitles and the pink backing and the gray mist and the three different streams of posting happening on the same day. It was confusing. I lost some readers. I know I did, because I track this stuff.
Oh well. Shit happens. I fucked up. It was a mistake and I made it and I’m trying to fix it. I’ve gotten rid of the (BDS) next to all of the Best Dates Spots in NYC posts and the pink backing that went with them. From now on I will write articles related to that topic one day a week – Monday, I’m thinking. It will be a weekly feature. And I won’t post anything else on Mondays.
I’m sticking with the alternative format for the Ex Files for now. And we’ll see how that goes. If it’s not a popular feature then maybe I’ll kill it altogether.
Sorry, really, about the confusion. Let’s never speak of this again.
