Last week I was going through my old Canvas posts, looking for one in particular that I needed to give me a frame of for reference on something. And I found the particular post, and I said to myself, ‘Damn, I wrote some pretty good stuff here.’ I did, too, and I am not the only one, not even close.
Then all at once, as I was doing something completely non-Canvas related, and thinking thoughts having nothing whatsoever to do with mental health or blogging (I was watching an old movie, okay?), it occurred to me that there are all of these great pieces in our archives, published before we had much of a reader base. And let’s be honest, you aren’t really going to wade through two years of this stuff on your own. It’s okay, I get it.
Now Canvas is not a place for reblogs, though a few exceptions have been made. My initial thought was just to share these old posts through facebook and Twitter. But what about all of you who have no facebook account, who aren’t on the Twitter stream?
So, starting this week, I think it’s time for me to reblog some Canvas posts to Canvas. Like I said, there’s a lot of stuff by all of our authors I really think is worth reading.
Don’t worry, the main focus will still be on new pieces our authors are working on now. This will just be something to hopefully pique your interests in the meantime. And please do comment! I can’t vouch for every piece, as some of our “retirees” (I haven’t thought up a better word) aren’t even on WordPress any more. But I’ve vouchsafed at least one is willing to come back and discuss, and I’m even going to stick my own toes a little further in the water, let’s say even my whole foot, and try to keep current on any comments you leave for me — including on this post.
Love and Kisses,
