I’m starting this blog today, on Groundhog Day, February 2, 2014. I know I’m coming rather late to the blogging community, but the truth is, until recently, I never thought the internet particularly needed a personal blog by Miya Tokumitsu.
I’m still not sure it does, but on January 13 of this year, my article, “In the Name of Love” appeared in Jacobin, and the response was massive (and utterly unexpected). I thought the article would start some conversations in left-leaning circles that comprise Jacobin‘s readership, but almost immediately the article started to go viral. Slate picked it up for a reprint, and it remained that site’s “Most Read” and “Most Shared” article for almost four days.
I’m thrilled that the article has reached so many people, but I was unprepared for the sudden interest in me and my work. Presently, I imagine this blog as a place to share some of my work and provide updates on current projects. Thanks for visiting.
