This morning I woke up, made breakfast, sat down with a cup of coffee and turned on the TV.
"What now?" I thought.
For the first time in a year, I wasn't facing down several hours of pre-planned TV.
"This is weird," I said. I turned the TV off. It felt so strange to not have in my day that I didn't really want to watch anything. I cleaned the house. I ate lunch. I worked on some art projects. All the while, the television screen was black and the room was silent.
Eventually, I looked at the DVR. Lots and lots of shows had banked in the last month or so. With this blog going at full clip, I hadn't had time to watch a single other show. I suggested we try Almost Human. We did. Watching McCoy rip through a future New York City with his android partner, I immediately, obviously thought of Star Trek. I missed my blog. I missed my show. I missed you.
I came over to Blogger. Sometime during the morning, while my TV had been off and my laptop was shut, this site hit 90,000 pageviews. So, again, thank you. Thank you for being here. Thank you for coming back over and over again. Thank you for your encouragement, your emails, your comments.
Tonight, I'm going to bed after a day with no Star Trek. But that's alright. This project is still here. It'll still be here tomorrow. And the next day.
And that brings me to a little announcement:
I have a NEW project. My husband and I are going to watch all of X-Files in a year and write about it together. You can read about that over at Our Year Of X-Files.
