I've been blogging—however irregularly—over at Amazon.com for a few years now, but I've always felt that arena was for the "official" JMD. It was as if I was standing in the aisle of a book store, greeting potential readers: sharing my thoughts, certainly—but also trying to get them interested in my wares. I'm hoping that this blog will be more like a living room: a little more casual and personal. A place where I can talk about, well, anything that comes to mind, from the trivial to the profound. And I hope to do it at least once a week. (I'll wait a moment for the laughter to die down.)
So to those of you who have been following the Amazon blog—which will continue with once a month (or so) postings—welcome. And to anyone else who stumbles across this little corner of the net, come on in, pull up a chair and enjoy (I hope).
