the miracle of birth

This is my fourth blog now and my fourth ‘first entry’ blog posting. It usually doesn’t get much further than that.
The good ol’ new years resolution blog. A couple of January entries, the previous year lists, and then pulverised by apathy, the decaying domain becomes a forgotten dot.com. Lets go one better this year and make February.

I usually get stuck on the aesthetics when starting these things- fonts, images, colours, layout, etc. But the thing that topples me most is the name. ‘Tough Hugs’ works because it’s how i want my writing to feel. Like you’re being lovingly embraced by perspiring, inked-up hulk. A better name might come, or Tough Hugs might stick; it’s important not to get too caught up with these things, i just want something so i can get started.
