…my Rice friends conspired to start writing in their blogs again.

What a refreshing surprise.

2 of ’em wiped the slate clean and started over from scratch.  I haven’t dared to check to see if their old stuff was google-cached; it’s too sad to have lost a chunk of journal time…

So goes the world of blogging.  How many times have I seen a blog “start over” or get “redesigned” or “go on hiatus” for no apparent reason.  It’s yet another blog cliche. (Surely someone has compiled a set of those, haven’t they?)
