Three years ago I quit blogging. I instead decided to start a magazine. The mag is still going and where once I was alone putting the thing together it has grown into a partnership of four with countless contributing writers, photographers and artists. The one thing I miss most about blogging is that it is only me. Selfish? Yes, of course.
Funny thing though: in three years a person can change a lot. I was looking back over the 2 years worth of blogs I did before and wondered to myself who in the hell wrote all that? Whoever he was, he sure seemed a bit pissed off with the world. I like that guy. I miss that guy. He needs to come back in blog format rather than raving drunk in the street.
Three years of putting together a magazine in South Korea, home to some of the most stringent libel laws in the “free” world, will instill you with a filter for what you say and do in a public forum.
I’ve come back here to step back behind the filter and let it flow. Let’s see how it goes.
