Metafootnotes: Books. Shoes. Music. The Web. What else is there?
I am a middle-aged, middle-class, middle-brow writer, reader, wife and mother languishing in a dusty corner of the Great American West. I have spent several years lurking online, but I’m ready to join the conversation. I just hope I have something to say.
If you’re wondering why I veil my identity (or anonoblog, as it’s known), well, just see this post.
I came to blogging by a curious route. The first blog site that I read regularly was Terry Teachout’s About Last Night, which includes his Wall Street Journal theatre reviews and interesting comments on theatre and the arts. I then linked into some of his favorite art- and book-related sites, and decided to put up my own book blog, metaFootnotes. Only it quickly took on a life of its own. I found I was interested in and challenged by a lot more than books. The midlife part of it came after I posted a plea on Blogher looking for other midlife bloggers, a happy experience that helped engender ByJane’s new MidlifeBloggers. And it continues to change. I’m even considering a second blog.
Look for posts on books, American culture, middle age, thrift shops, shoes, family, politics, religion and maybe even the occasional rant if I’m irritated enough.
Thanks for stopping by!
