My friend Austin is a Cancer survivor. Several years ago, in the thick of treatment, he started using the blog tool at Carepages, a great website for patient outreach. It was a way for him to express himself in a safe forum, as well as keeping his friends and family up to date on his progress. The posts tapered off as his active treatment wound down.
But he still has stuff to say, so he started up a page on Blogger. And stalled out. But he was still writing and even participating in local readings. Every once in a while, he would write something and post it on the Notes app in Facebook. And every time, I would be all:
Dooooooode……you have a real blog. Why are you tooling around on the Facebook???
And now he is back on Blogger and I am plugging him so he will be forced to keep up the thing. Thank you for your attention.
