From what Google Analytics tells me, people are still checking out the site, even though it hasn’t been updated in a while.
A quick note, to shed some light on the Slow Century situation. I (Danielle) certainly overestimated how much time I had to devote to this. But I’m so used to making mistakes (I’d guess that 80% of my decisions are bad/wrong ones) that I’m happy to work through this overestimation. Dan’s been awesome, though I think my long lapse in posting has affected his frequency over here - and that’s a shame, because I think there are a lot of people who enjoy reading his thoughts.
Joe and Janna are over in Oregon, living a life that makes me consider my New York residency. Oh, and they’re engaged! They’re one of the greatest couples I know, and I’m so, so happy for them. Joe’s getting his MFA in fiction, and Janna, whatever she ends up doing during the hours of 9-5, is, as always, taking beautiful pictures. (And with a new cat, a new dog, and a new landscape to photograph, I’ve appreciated Janna’s tumblr even more than usual.)
I’ll be posting more often on here. I might have to cut out an hour of Doogie Howser time out of my nightly schedule to do it, but I think I can handle that.
We need to adjust the “about” section a bit - it was certainly ambitious, but rather than try to change or alter the face of online media, I think we’re better suited to just, you know, talk about things with the voices we have. And we’re still interested in contributing writers. If you already have a blog, we’d be happy to cross-post; and if you don’t blog already, and you’re a good writer, we’d love to add your thoughts here. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested, and feel free to include a sample or a link to your blog.
Thanks for sticking with us.
