The quarterly update

MAY 8, 2008


Hello, I say? Is there anybody out there?...

...[a cricket chirps in the background, otherwise, nothing]...

Okay, I know I deserve that. I've been deplorably bad about blogging. But what exactly do you do when you feel you have nothing to blog about? Memes? I am not going to go that route. Youtube videos? Can be entertaining from time to time, but after awhile it just gets dull.

Okay, so I had things I could have blogged about. Like for example, my Dad had his cystoscopy again and he is still cancer-free. Or in March/April, we took a two and a half week trip to Costa Rica and Panama, where I actually saw a quetzal? Not just any old quetzal, but two resplendent quetzals. Sim ran walked in a marathon. I think we are pretty close to finally having a democratic nominee (although I may be wrong, Hillary should be the next celebrity endorser for Energizer batteries.. She keeps going.. and.. well, nevermind). Oh yeah, and I have found myself becoming addicted to tweeting. And I am not proud of that.

I'm in the process of a new site design completely. Time to blow away the old, and usher in the new. I can accept that I have increasingly gone through these dry periods. Get into it for a few days, then just lose my voice completely. But it's not like I've fallen off the planet. I'm still very active online. I just sometimes feel I lost my voice. So, I'm redesigning the new site around this fact, incorporating what one could call micro-blogging. Social networking has so become the rage lately, and I want a little bit going on in my site also. It's about time.

Now, I've been looking at some of the old linkers to my site, and I see many of them removed me. Fair enough, I know I do not deserve any patience. I'm not holding up my end of the deal, I'm not terribly exciting. But I do hope to move back into it. Especially with the upcoming elections. At times, I can just talk and talk and talk and talk politics and Sim gets to listen and listen and listen and listen. And I know he's just not that into it like I am. So stop wagging the lips, and start flicking the keys, Christine. And I must not fret that most of my readers have moved on. Because when I first started blogging, I knew nobody was there to read it and I still did it anyway. There comes a time when you have to do something for the good of you, not for the good of everyone else. And it's a little nice to feel you're speaking to a smaller audience again. It takes the pressure off a bit, especially when talking about more controversial topics.

Anyway, for those of you still around. I thank you for being so patient. I will try not to disappoint again, the new site design will help. You will see what I mean when it is unveiled. Cheers!
