A New Direction for the Final Days of 2009

I’ve been neglecting The Sky’s the Limit partly due to my course load at school and partly due to laziness. Posts over the last couple of months have not been up to par, and you deserve better. For that I apologize.

But even though posts have been scarce and somewhat less than acceptable, the blog has never been far from my mind. You might say I’m a gestation thinker. I stick things in this brain of mine and let it work on them for a while. Given enough time (and good raw materials) it usually comes up with something decent.

I’ve been blogging for about three and a half years. I’m afraid my earliest posts were lost to the inconsistencies of Yahoo! 360. Those of you who were there (and I thank you for sticking with me thus far) will remember the many problems with that platform. The earliest post appearing on this blog — The 100 Most Common Words in English (since edited and renamed The Power of Old English) — I carried over from the blog I wrote for FictionAddiction.NET. The first post written for The Sky’s the Limit was Free Comic Book Day 2008.

I’ve learned a lot since then — much from experience and much from good teachers. Michelle, Clary, Chris and Danny, you know who you are. And I can’t discount the wonderful feedback from so many readers over the years. Now I want to take all of that and move this blog to the next level.

Starting tomorrow — when I review my writing goals for 2009 and finalize my writing goals for the last quarter of this year — I’m embarking on a project to redesign and relaunch The Sky’s the Limit. I’ll be giving the blog a new name and a refined focus, making it a more pleasant read for you and a better platform for me.

I’ll need your help with this endeavour — your comments and feedback. And if you know anyone else who might be interested in the content of this blog or this project to improve it, please invite them to come along.

Thanks again for your participation, your friendship and your patience. You make this blog worthwhile.
