Doing a phoenix

Is my blog dead?

That’s a question I’ve been asking myself for quite a few weeks now. The answer I want to give is: “No, of course not!” The truth… well, that’s a whole different kettle of fish. But then, if I do want to resurrect Writer’s Log, what better time to do it than on my birthday. So, yay, happy birthday to me.

If Writer’s Log is to rise from the ashes, I figure I need to have a plan. This blog was never about chronicling my life—it was to talk about the things that were important to me. Over the past few years, I find, I’ve stopped engaging directly with social issues of my concern. I hope to change this. Right now there are heated debates and discussions going on around me about violence against women, gender inequality, rape culture and others. I want all this to figure in my blog.

The book reviews need to come back. I still have to put up old reviews in the Book Reviews section and also really need to start adding some new ones.

Apart from reading, the one other thing I’ve not stopped is gaming. So, yes, there will be more talk about games on Writer’s Log, even though I still deny that I have a Sims blog. Web design and techie things are some other things that have featured here, and though they are a lower priority, hopefully they’ll come back as well. As for sport… let’s not go there.

So, once again, hello world.

    Hey! You should get the Jetpack plugin offered by WordPress. It has a mobile theme in it. I say this for my own selfish reasons.
