Oh hi there. I am back. “What HAPPENED to your BLOG?” people have been asking, anxiously, fearing that perhaps I am unwell, or perhaps unemployed. My best friend, who in fact lives in England, was afraid to ask. My father called me several times to tell me that my blog was not available, implying that there had been some sort of corporate screw-up, and that I should get on it. My mother emailed her disappointment. You have to understand that these are people who are in touch with me regularly, who see me and talk to me, but for some reason rely on my blog for insight into my outlook and well being. “You could just ask me”, I suggested to my brother, who called me yesterday from Germany. “No, no”, he said, “it’s not the same. When’s it coming back?”
Well, now, I guess. As you can see, we have a spanking new online format, and, depending on which station website you are visiting, you should be able to see this blog, follow me on Twitter and Facebook, AND listen to podcasts of The Last Word. More Mo than anyone should ever need or want. I haven’t figured out all the buttons out yet, so bear with me, in case I inadvertently post a recipe or a sex tape (relax – I don’t collect recipes). You should also be able to post comments more easily that you could before, so please do. You’re part of the show too.
I only hope I can get out and find enough material to keep the engine stoked. As a content provider, I am going to need regular entertaining Life Experiences to recount. I can’t rely on my kids as much anymore, as they are growing up and have these stupid PRIVACY issues. God. So it will have to be me. And you. But mostly me. So that the next time someone asks me how I am, I can say, “read my blog”.
