I didn't set out to create something that would be marked for posterity each year as a kind of ego-maniacal self monument, but, I had just realized this week that we have gone a full year with this blog. In fact, as many of you know, this thing was born on the heels of the initial Detroit is Crap shut down last November and the loss of my "second home" so to speak, and I needed an outlet for carrying on the fight and addressing the things that mattered to me.
I want to personally thank my readers(whom I have come to call friends) for their contributions and comments in keeping this thing interesting and worthwhile, particularly(though in no particular order) Jeff, Joy, Cleveland, Ronduck, and the mighty Orion from Access St. Louis. I thank all of those also(the DIC crew who managed to find their way here, especially) who signed up to follow and those Lone Wolf lurkers out there who need to fly under the radar. Detroiter deserves his due here, also, as he essentially paved the way and passed on the "blogging bug" to me.
I do this for myself because I need to, but without all of you on the journey with me, what would be the point really?
New posts have become less and less frequent and I vow to remedy that in the coming weeks and months as we gear up and get back on a serious footing, as I mentioned two or three posts back. I've no intention of giving up anytime soon, even if they drag me to a FEMA camp. As long as there's a stick and some dirt, I'll still scratch out this Insurgent message.
