The End of an Era

AsleepI’m sure you’ve all been keeping track, but the last day when I didn’t publish at least one thing on this blog was November 18th, 2008.  This is fair warning that more such days are coming.

From the blog’s inception in March ’03 up to November ’08, blog posts were very sporadic, with some weeks having lots and others almost none.  This push for a daily blurb was initially a personal challenge to see if I could simply write more often and more consistently than I had been.   I wanted to see if I could write because I had to and not just because I felt like it.  It turns out I can, but I’ve also learned that I can rationalize that writing a one line quip and posting an embedded YouTube video can be rationalized as “writing” if you squint real hard.

Anyway, blogging will be very light until after the holiday (unless it rains a lot).  I just need some time to recharge my batteries.  After that, I’m still going to try and write something substantive several days a week on average, but it will be a much more casual schedule than it has been.  Primarily because I’m intending that future one liners or things that are basically reposts will be done primarily via Twitter or Facebook.  So if you want the full experience, you’ll need to follow me on one of those as well.  They are basically the same content, so one is plenty.  Note that the Twitter feed is viewable/accessible at the top of the column to the right as well.  And it’s public, so you can pick that up as an RSS feed (if you’re into that sort of thing) and get my blogs and Tweets in one place.

Additionally, I want to take this opportunity to thank my regular readers.  Many of you have been with me for years, and I hope you’ll stick around for many more.  I do try to keep the content interesting, entertaining, or at least a worthwhile diversion in your otherwise busy day.  I hope you continue to find it so.  Your feedback or comments are always welcome and appreciated.

See you on the other side…
