Believe it or not this blog celebrates its second anniversary today. Recently I read somewhere someone said: "Blogging is easy. Blogging for a long time is hard." Comparatively speaking, 2 years is a drop in the bucket but the temptation to quit is always there. Fortunately the whole format of blogging is conducive to my temperament: random, sporadic and eclectic. Also, the many individuals' blogs I read remain highly satisfying and enlightening, so staying in is my way of paying back. Traffic swells and wanes, (I don't use a counter so I never know exactly how much); I run out of ideas for posts or run out of time for scanning but sooner or later I seem to come up with something new roughly every 3-to-10 days. I can't quite seem to get more consistent than that, which is why I always knew I'd never be able to do a syndicated comic strip.
Lately there have been a spate of other internet forms of staying in touch, but somehow this one suits me best, old-fashioned as it is. If blogging isn't soon eclipsed by some sub-cutaneous nano-chip you can 'tweet' with your eyebrow, I will keep on posting. Many thanks to all the people who keep interested and otherwise encourage the perpetuation of this corner of the web.
NOTE: I recently turned off "Comment Moderation" because I was having trouble publishing visitor comments away from my home network. I fixed the glitch but innocently left it off...until a pretty relentless spammer from somewhere in East Asia bombarded a solid several months worth of posts. As a result "Comment Moderation" is back on, your patience is appreciated.
