"Papa, Can You Hear Me?" (Or: I'm still here- Don't Worry)

Well, this is awkward.

I haven't been here in the longest time, there are cobwebs and crickets everywhere, and I don't even have a great reason for my absence. The best I can do is "I'm busy with...school, and...life, and stuff". But that is just so lame, so I won't even try to explain myself.

What is important is that I have not completely abandoned blogging, I've just pushed it to the back of my priorities cupboard. In the front of this cupboard, are my new internet babies- Tumblr and Wordpress. Yes, yes, I know- what type of mother neglects her first born child as soon as some cute new ones arrive? But I have a reason. (Okay, maybe I am going to try and explain myself.)
I had to start a Wordpress site for a school project. I plan on archiving it and forgetting about it as soon as the marks are up. The Tumblr was an impulse decision made at some inappropriate hour of the night, most probably after I saw a few too many beautifully composed pictures of handbags, shoes and elaborate breakfast tables, and I just had to have somewhere to put all the ones I liked the most. Basically, I had reblog fomo, and I decided to do something about it.

So that's what I've been doing. And it has kept me distracted from this site, though lately I have been hearing some muffled cries and scratching around in that cupboard of mine. I have so many ideas for improving this site, and for better posts and just general blog happiness, and hopefully by this time next year my developer and I will have made it all happen.
(If you know where I can find a developer, please let me know because I'm clueless.)

In the meantime, I will be posting here on an unpredictable basis, and you will accept it (because you need me as much as I need you). I will try to make it worthwhile.

First up: an interview I did with Thando Mgqolozana about his new book, Unimportance.
