Let’s Never Speak of This Again

Anais Nin wrote, “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage”.  She wrote a lot of other awesome things, too.

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.

    I run a game with a somewhat active community. They know that I try out things within 30 seconds of thinking of them and that in an hour or two it may cross my mind that there are consequences, on a good day it’ll take only another hour for me to figure out the first consequence.

    Granted this makes me seem crazier than I am but it also leads to a lot of good things. The game advances at a good pace and the players know that any bad ideas will be rectified.

    They who risks nothing, gains nothing. They who risks everything stands to gain everything. I’ve no idea if that’s a quote from a famous person or not, if it is I’ve no idea where I heard it.

    This means if I comment, I’m speaking of it again? lol Hey, you are working on your blog (like I am now) and so many before us. Mistakes are made by many and it’s part of the game. Keep doing your thing because I see a lot of progress being made through your attempts! If you lost readers, then they weren’t real followers of yours to begin with. Besides, they’ll be back because your blog rocks :)

    -Thanks guys. I knew that you (my longtime, regular readers) would understand. I SO appreciate your patience as I work this stuff out.

    You know what I think, I think this is a good sign. You’re making changes because your blog is growing. Nothing wrong with trying out different stuff to see what works. Love to see how this blog settles in. The weekly Best Dates Spot sounds like a good idea.

    Personally this is good research for me considering the fact that I might be spending a month in NYC sometime this year :)
