Q: What do Natalie’s blog in 2015 and the Soviet Union in the 1970s and early 1980s have in common?
A: They both were in an era of stagnation during these periods!
I couldn’t resist putting in a little Soviet Union joke/reference there… but really, it does make my point. I’ve had the same theme on this blog for ages. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as it was a good theme. I may even go back to it at some point.
Right now, I need a change. Hence the new theme you should see right now. It’s called Lovecraft. I’m not sure if I like it or not, but I’m giving it a try. I’m hoping to end this period of stagnation and I’d like to do it without bringing in a new person to this blog. (That’s supposed to be a joke, as stagnation in the Soviet Union is considered to have ended in 1985 when the dynamic and (relatively) young Mikhail Gorbachev rose to power.)
