Almost two years ago I wrote about my aversion to blogging (please see My Anti-Blog). I was an early adopter of the Internet. Since the mid 1990s I have had my own Web site, coded entirely by hand, describing my books and providing biographical information and links to my newspaper and magazine stories. Why would I also want a blog? And why would I need Facebook? Anyone could find me with a Google search, and my email address is on my web site.
Gradually I am becoming less hardcore. I now have a mostly private Facebook page, which I use to keep in touch with friends and colleagues, and lately I have been thinking of starting a blog about some of the amazing things I have been discovering about cancer. This post is a way of sticking a toe in the water.
Merry Christmas and New Year.
