I've realized that there's a bit of a feedback loop going. I feel like the number of people still readng this journal has declined in the last year or two, and that's made me less inclined to devote energy to putting together essays to post. This, of course, makes people less inclined to keep an eye out for my writing.
On the other hand, there's another explanation: maybe the little stuff I've posted has just been less interesting than I thought, and's that's why it hasn't provoked much in the way of comments.
So: Let me know. Are you still reading here? Is there a forum you like better? Should I be posting on Google+ or my own website instead? Or also? Don't be shy.
