When I founded OPC, just over a year ago, it was with the firm conviction that this should not be a spot for me to lay out my personal travails. I have read too many bloggers who decide that people are reading the blog because they really want to know what's going on in the author's personal life, whether or not that has anything to do with the subject matter of the blog. I'm not always sure what the subject matter of this blog is, but whatever it is, it certainly is not my personal travails.
Fortunately, my pal Larry Smith has set up a site that is nothing but personal travails, so I have posted some of mine over there. It's totally up to you whether you pop over there to read it, though.
