Blogging Slowdown

Not sure what is wrong with me of late. Life in general has been pretty good so I don't have that as an excuse. School was very busy the last few weeks but I was off most of this week for Thanksgiving. Yet, I still didn't blog until today and scarcely even visited other blogs, something I used to do religiously. It's also not that I haven't had ideas. I've had lots of ideas for blog posts but it just has seemed more effort than it's worth to put them in actual words.

I've actually not been doing much writing either. I've half a dozen projects part way done and I've jotted down dozens of other ideas, but I just haven't gotten the bit in my teeth on any of them.

Slow downs are inevitable. Maybe it's just that. Blogging seems to be slowly dying away anyway so maybe that is part of it as well. It's always so easy to post a quick line or two on facebook, but you lose something at that short length.

Hopefully I'll get back to blogging soon and with some more substantial posts. I should have some good news to share soon so I'll definitely want to blog about that.

Until then, hang in everyone.

I've been doing a lot of other things too, but I know what you mean about seeing things I'd ususally blog about, and thinking, "Nah...." :/ Hopefully the wanna will come back soon.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Breaks are part of the ebb and flo my friend!

It has slowed, but that does make room for those of us still blogging. Although I did take a break over Thanksgiving.
Just pop in when you can. No pressure. It's not a job!

Yep, I have slowed down too. Besides my regular job, I'm also teaching right now and just spent a couple hours this evening reading papers. That kills any desire to write! It's good to keep up with you on Facebook!

The world has tilted heavily on its axis, everyone id feeling the gravitational effects.

Angie, A little discipline would help me out immensely. I used to have it.

Cloudia, true. Gotta keep that in mind.

Alex, I do like catching up when I get around to the blogs.

Sage, facebook is so quick and easy.

Mark, that sounds about right.

Well, Charles, I've come to feel a friendship with you that I know will be lost if you stop blogging, so I hope you get back to it too.

Snowbrush, I'm going to try to pick it up again. Got some things to talk about for a little while.

Charles-we all need a break sometimes. When it feels right to be back, you will know it!
