Catching up

As you may have noticed Rob Payne has left DH. He was upset at me over something I shouldn't have posted, which I have since corrected, but since then Rob has decided that he is tired of blogging. (His last post at Halcyon Days is here.) I understand this, even though I am disappointed by his decision and hope he might someday decide to return.

I mean to continue, and I hope that Bob and Mimi and Micah might make additional contributions here; I look forward to their posts and always feel exited when I see one of theirs up, just as I did with Rob's posts. I always wanted the members of DH to feel like it is our blog, even though it needs to be noted that Rob essentially carried it on his shoulders, posting 60-70 per cent of the material while he was here.

For now however, I admit to feeling a bit disconnected, partly because of Rob leaving, and partly because I also have other projects I need to attend to, so my posting will be light in October and November.

All the same, I mean to add these folks to the blogroll shortly:


http://agonyin8fits.blogspot.com/ aka Susan from Texas, as she sometimes signs her comments at ATR

http://pezcandy.blogspot.com/ aka "Constructive destruction"

http://lawrenceofcyberia.blogs.com/news/

http://leninology.blogspot.com/

http://mondoweiss.net/

http://xymphora.blogspot.com/

I've debated whether or not to add IOZ, "Stop Me Before I Vote Again" and Lady Poverty just because I suspect most of the few persons likely to visit already know who they are and they don't really need additional promotion, per se.


I still post ephemera that strikes my fancy at Hugo Zoom occasionally. I try to treat DH as the "serious" blog, although hopefully not too much so.

Oi, too bad Rob did that but I understand the "kick blogging" mindset as I go through it periodically.

Thanks for the linkage, Jonathan.

Xymphora? But why?

No problemo, CFO.

Hi JM. I will admit I sometimes have mixed feelings about Xymphora, but on balance I think he is valuable even if I don't always agree with him.

Hey Jonathan, thanks for the Kind.

Doesn't mean his outright bigotry for Jewish people should be excused and yes, there's Jewish people who are disgusted at Israel's actions too, but he refuses to acknowledge them:

Jonathan,

I just wanted to thank you for having me here at your site. I also wanted to say that Jonathan is one of the nicest humans I have met on the net. Quitting had nothing to do with our little misunderstanding, just tired of tilting at windmills as it were.

Oh, Rob, I wish you'd continue. You inspired me, did you know that? Maybe after a pause and when you're refreshed, you'll post again. I wish all the best for you.

Hi Rob, good to hear from you. And what Mimi said.:^)

Mimi,

Your writing inspired me as well. I'll be visiting here so I'm not going to vanish.

Jonathan,

You too, hope you are doing well.
