Prophetic, wasn't it?

No, reader in Rhode Island, it wasn't meant to be the finale of the whole blog.

In fact, it was the very day I mentioned to a friend that I really needed to keep posting every day, lest I stop posting altogether, that I decided to give myself permission not to post everyday.

And you see what happened.

It had gotten to the point where, more often than not, I was finding some random and trivial thing to post simply to keep up with the (self imposed) obligation of daily posting,when in fact I had nothing of substance (for even very generous definitions of "substance") to say, and the whole thing was really a chore.

So anyway.

I haven't abandoned it altogether, but I think it's clear that I'm over the Post Every Day Just For The Sake Of Doing So phenomenon.

Basically, I've switched over to Facebook for the day-to-day keeping in touch with people, remarking on the minutiae of life, and general online presence. It's not the same as blogging, but it's meeting the same needs. I'll post here if I have something more substantial to say, or photos to post.

hey dont be blaming me!
and seeing as my blog is nothing but random and trivial things I like reading those (but can also do it on the book of the face too)

Ah, that explains it! I was wondering if your computer was just becoming too troublesome for regular posting.

Well, I for one (of many) will miss you. I'm on Facebook but never go there; it seems like such a bunch of pissant drivel, "Ralph is..." ...bored to tears.

Good luck with it, though.

Meanwhile, I'll check back here periodically for your bloggy goodness.

Fair enough! Those stats can be confusing, but I thought I'd tracked the comment because I was online when it came in :)

Oh Facebook! It's not quite the same, you know. But I've been neglected my blog, too, so I can't complain too much.

You have a good idea...Facebook for every day comments and the blog for substantial writing or photos. That's what I do. It takes away the stress from having to write because people expect it!
