I have been suffering from a bit of writer’s block on this side of the blogging. Or, rather, my life has bit at a bit of a standstill so there is less about which to blog. One thing this blog has been doing, though, is getting a facelift. Backslash Scott Thoughts is almost two whole years old, and it’s been the same template (even the widgets) since day one. Over the last week or so I’ve been revamping the whole thing, top down. In addition to the cosmetic change here, I’ve been blogging at the history blog (which is now available via a handy dandy link up top) about gerrymandering, Ugandan rebels, the Bill of Rights, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and Ralph Nader.
But I am doing more than just blogging at home. We’ve been continuing to renovate the house (on which there is a pending post) and I’m going to hopefully begin volunteering with a refugee group soon, something I’ve wanted to do for a couple of years now. I’m also not quite finished with the blog makeover, so I’ll continue working on that. Ideally, you will be aghast at all of the amazing things I post in the next few weeks. Until then, enjoy the list of special ingredients.
