Time to start a blog

Now that blogging is dead, seems like a good time to start a blog! I've given myself a few ground rules..

Mini-essays -- Longer-form writing will be the focus here. Aside from the occasional acts of shameless self-promotion, this space will be primarily devoted to mini essays and other kinds of ideas and prose sketches.

No comments -- Short-form discussion is great. But this blog will be for slightly longer pieces. If you want to respond in your own venue, please do!

No flame wars -- I'm not one to shy away from spirited debate, but flame wars are stupid. I'll try to keep the arguments substantive, while ignoring trolls and flamebaiters.

Sunset clause -- Don't you hate it when things go on too long? This blog will be summarily deleted after a certain amount of time. Six months, a year, who knows.
