I thought I had decided to give up this blogging lark. No bridges irreparably burnt of course but the whole thing had really become a bit of a burden. But I haven't really spent much less time closeted away on the computer since my 'departure', still been lurking here and there on the odd occasion and somehow feeling that this time spent had less of a reward, less interactivity and fundamentally less fun.
So perhaps it might be time to re-emerge and end this hiatus. Ideas are beginning to coalesce again and perhaps this son of Cain might just about be ready to emerge once again from the swamp blinking in the harsh light of the blogosphere.
Perhaps the initial failing was a self imposed obligation to post to a regular schedule. I'm a Purchasing Manager not a Journalist. So I might go with once a week ranging to a once a month thing.
I never had any particular reason for blogging in the first place, no real mission, no cause but I just got drawn into a sense that it was necessary to post on an almost daily basis. Trying to keep up with folks who could do this stuff instinctively. But I suspect in doing that I allowed all the fun to be sucked out of the whole thing.
Not doing that again. I don't have the time or the inclination to be drawn back to the 'Tyranny' of blogging.
But you know what? It might just be about time to venture a few opinions, post a few music vids and re-engage again. There's enough to comment on at the moment to even keep a dilettante like me in material for ages.
The swamp isn't open for business. But the weeds are being rearranged and the clutter cleared with the intent of welcoming visitors again soon.
