Where slacking is a sport, reading an addiction, and underachievement a birthright

Archive for November, 2010

DAMN-it’s been far too long, but I have an idea that just might work…

I do an awful lot of writing online.  I write emails that are the length of War and Peace.  I comment on people’s Facebook postings until I run out of room.  And for some reason, I’ve not been here since…March?  Well this is a bit wrong.  THIS is supposed to be MY space where I share with you all of my thoughts and beliefs, both for you and me, so I can enlighten others, argue with some, and find out about lives other than my own.

I guess a large reason for this is that when posting on FB, I know people are reading it.  Here?  I’ve had this site for so long, and I’ve gotten progressively worse and worse in terms of when I post things, that I basically assume that no one reads anything in here anymore, that anyone who WAS possibly interested in this site has long abandoned me for more interesting places.  That’s understandable.  But I don’t like it.

Perhaps the best MO from this point forward IS to do that which I said-copy my postings and thoughts that I send to people in emails and posts, and see if you find any of them interesting.  Don’t worry; I’ll only be posting MY entries, not entire conversations or things of that nature.

I’m not one for New Years resolutions, but against all odds, I’ve been able to keep this site around for several years-minimally.  Perhaps that right there is a perfect example of my slackerdom (and justification for calling myself the poster child for the X generation):  writing a couple posts a year, just to keep this withering plant alive.  I think, and I hope that I follow through on this new great idea, because I write some really fabulous stuff, and it would be nice to have it all in one place vis-a-vie on other people’s postings, random emails and IMs and other things of the like.  It would be interesting to see what it all looks like when it’s separated from everyone else’s.

If you’ve stopped by here, thank you.  I hope you will come back again soon.
