A Tale of Two Blogs


First, thanks to all for the kind comments and emails regarding my post about my mother from a few days ago. Those comments put me in mind of something I’ve been meaning to do with this blog for while now. Allow me to explain.

A little more than three years ago, I staked a claim to this happy little corner of the wild, wild web and started cultivating organically grown blog posts. Five-hundred-ninety-four posts later, it is clear that my writing here can be classified into two broad categories:

1. Musings about family, life, and faith along with quirky humor centered on retro ephemera.

2. Analysis and commentary about politics and the culture.

Given the above, it’s not surprising that I seem to have developed two distinct groups of readers. There are those who come here primarily for category 1, and another group that values the category 2 content.

In other words, there are those who come for the heart-warming and those who come for the blood-boiling. Those who come for cheer and those who come for drear. Some for witticism, some for criticism.

There is, of course, a little overlap between the two groups. But not enough to keep me from wondering if I should split the content into two separate areas.

At some point in the next few days I’ll be splitting the blog into two zones and changing the home page to create two corresponding doorways. Going forward from there, you’ll be able to bookmark whichever side of my brain you find most interesting.

As always, I’m humbled and grateful that you find your way here at all. Thank you.
