For the first time in about four years, I have internet access that costs money. No more logging in to some unknown neighbor's unsecured wireless network that only works when I wedge myself into the corner of the living room and hold my laptop an awkward angle. No more going to a coffee shop for a more reliable connection—the amount of money I end up spending on coffee in a month usually exceeds the amount of money broadband internet access costs anyway.
By posting this, I am effectively committing myself to more frequent blog posts. Expect more pictures of Jack, but also much more varied content. I have been working towards finishing a solid draft of my novel by the end of summer, and this blog is about to become a vehicle for shameless self-promotion. Tell your friends.
