Although the title of this segment is rather soft, The Mayor promises you that the actual meat of this post will be much less soft. That’s right, it will be MUCH less soft. As in harder. Stiffer. Harder and stiffer and much less soft.
The Mayor and Fenris started this blog about ten years ago. At the time, it was an outlet to scream and rant and let off steam. Mostly though, it was a place where The Mayor could go and type a bunch of nonsense, not taking himself too seriously, posting assorted crap that made him feel good. Somewhere along the line The Mayor got serious (or more seriousler), and sort of lost the plot of his own blog. After about seven years, the blog felt like a job and truth be told The Mayor started to despise his own hangout place.
And he kind of hung up his blogging gloves (for those of you that aren’t aware, when you begin blogging, they give you a set of blogging gloves – they’re quite fetching).
However, after leaving his own blog for the better part of a year (and really about 2 years if The Mayor was capable of telling the truth), he found that he really missed the nonsense part of having a blog. And then he had an epiphany: why not make pancakes from gluten free flour? This way he can cut out the gut-killing gluten and yet still enjoy natures finest food?
And then The Mayor had a second epiphany: why not run the blog that he did when he first started? Why not the hell indeed?
And that’s what The Mayor decided to do. Starting today.
The Mayor is a happy man. The last few years have been a blessing to him. His little girl is 6 now, as gorgeous as the day is long, his two other legitimate children are doing great, and he is still madly in love with TLDG. But he misses the old blog.
Now, The Mayor is not saying Mitchieville will ever regain its past glory (and when The Mayor says glory, he uses that word because it’s better than using the word *shit*), but he is saying that from here on in, this blog has become Mitchieville 3.1. Meaning, everything old is new again.
