Well, here I am, back at Ramsayings, wondering where another year went. I constantly miss writing and yet never seem to find the words to say or the time to type them. It’s silly, really. The onuses of personal branding and thought leadership can really do a number on you if you let them, which is maybe what happened, but who can say. In any case, I’m back!
I may not have been writing, but I have been taking notes. I have thoughts on where my musical taste evolved this year as I really learned to embrace the new class of jam bands sweeping indie. I embraced my Midwesterness and drove the kids from Detroit to Florida in my first ever honest to god roadtrip. I have some reflections on my career journey, too.
The trick now is to map those out in a steady diet. One a day. We’ll see if I can maintain it for a week, then a month and so on. I know personal blogs have died and yet so many of us who were there at the dawn of personal blogging yearn for their return. I’ll try to keep up my end of the bargain this time.
