Dull Is the New Fabulous

This is my maiden post, but it isn't my first blog. I had, and continue to have, another blog that plays to a very specific audience and, mostly, to a very specific topic. You can find the other blog easily enough, but I'd just as soon you didn't unless you find it serendipitously, i.e., through another entry vector.

The blog title, as you likely guessed, is tongue-in-cheek, but only to a point. I'm starting the blog, which I truly don't have time to write, in part because I feel that some of what I want to write about is wildly out of place on my other site, but Dull Is the New Fabulous is also very much a response to the current fiscal crisis and a sort of statement of principle: we're all going to have to learn to do more with less, and a big part of that is going to be learning to appreciate the joys of the mundane.

So, if you like, you can think of this as another I-have-nothing-to-say-but-here's-yet-another-picture-of-my-cat blog (I'm addicted to a couple of those: I wish I could quit you!) but with two differences:
1. If I have nothing to say, I promise to say nothing.
2. I don't have a cat.

Maiden posts are almost always embarrassing, so I'm going to keep this one as a draft until my first substantive post is ready to go. That way, of the few people who find there way here, fewer still will ever read this, but if you are reading this, thanks.
