A New Leaf
It's been a while, my dear friends. I've been trying to keep up with your lovely blog spaces but as for The Marginalian, I have been uninspired and unsure about where take my little space of Internet real estate. I started The Marginalian to practice my writing and then it turned into a sometimes space of design inspiration and musings on my life. In the end, however, most of my posts felt like inferior copies of another blogger's genius.
So, I am going to reign in the focus of this space. I want it to be a more about the issues and topics that interest me: international affairs, politics, the inclusivity of women and minorities in security matters, gender roles, living in the twenty-first century, and perhaps a cultural review or two of some notable films, books, and music albums. There will be a dash of personal here and there but I hope that the space will become more about my thinking and less about my doing.
I will also be starting down the path of podcasting and audio production by creating "The Weekly Marginalian," a short program of commentary and audio clips of interest.
I hope the few of you who frequent my space will continue to visit because I so enjoy the conversation!
Wishing all who read this a joyous September day!
