Now that “The Getting Old Blog” is more than a year old itself, it’s beginning to look messy, like every other one-year-old that’s not tidied up regularly. There are essays and other short pieces all over the place — getting lost amid jokes, cat photos, recipes and also a few stories here and there. And then there’s the literary non-fiction, popping up where least expected and disappearing when I’m scrolling down to find it.
In a sudden fit of housekeeping energy that may vanish and leave me stranded if I don’t seize the moment, I am therefore cleaning up the blog with three new pages. They are headed, respectively: “Fiction,” “Selected Non-Fiction,” and “Selected Essays and Other Short Pieces.” They will each contain links to the pieces in their categories published within the past year that I think worth saving from oblivion.
One page goes up tonight, the other two in a couple of days. Hope they help with exploring the best of the blog so far. Happy reading….
