I’m Lauren, & I write here. The Long Way Home began at Blogchex & flourished… until Blogchex, without warning, disappeared. I relocated to Blogger, but decided in October 2008 to move to WordPress just because I like the interface better.
I write with some friends about music at Crossword With A Pen. Haven’t written in awhile. Haven’t figured out how to balance having a life with having multiple blogs yet.
I write about my dogs, or stuff my dogs would talk about, at Philosophy of Fur. Also pretty delinquent there as well. Three dogs keep you pretty busy!
I just joined another band as a singer. I also picked up another acoustic duo in Waikiki. Now that I don’t have to play guitar any more, I actually practice. And I’ve suddenly become paranoid about vocal usage.
I collect novels by Tanith Lee. I hate Anne Rice but sometimes I read her books anyway.
I used to play a lot of WoW. I think some of my best blogging was done about that game. Now I play GW2 or Aion, & my friends & I are waiting for Wildstar to come out.
My life has changed a lot since I began this blog. I think I’m a nicer person than I used to be. I’ve definitely been humbled over the years; figured some shit out, discovered more shit I don’t understand. I’ve become one of those people who doesn’t mind a carebear server. I’m not as funny. I swear less. I’m less likely to entertain trolls. Yeah, I’m getting old.
Song remains the same, though.
