Uh… I wrote five posts this year. I’m not even going to compare it to previous years. What in tarnation? What was I doing this year?
Well, let’s talk about Everything is Oll Korrect! first; not like that will take very long anyway. Then we’ll talk about personal matters, i.e., why there were so few posts this year.
I got an early start to the year, with the first post going up in March, “What Books Have Most Influenced Me?” This is largely a reflection on what it means to say a book has influenced someone.
That was followed shortly by “Notes on Praying the Divine Office,” a straightforward introduction and collection of tips on how to approach the Divine Office/Liturgy of the Hours, which unfortunately can be intimidating to those new to them.
For a little while I was on a roll, as just a couple weeks later I published a review of Mah Jongg: The Art of the Game. If nothing else, it was the most beautiful post of the year.
In June I finally watched and reviewed The Return of the King. Reviewing animation was long Everything’s bread-and-butter, and I still enjoy writing these posts. Y’know, when I write anything at all.
We then have a long gap to October, where I did my first-ever review of an album, Alan Parsons Project’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination.
Though none of these posts are all-time greats, I enjoyed writing them all and think they’re all pretty good. I also managed to fit in a lot of variety for so few posts, true to this blog’s name. The Mah Jongg review was the most fun to write and my personal favourite, while the Divine Office post was the most successful.
