I’ve been busy, yes, that’s one reason why posting has slowed.
The other is that I’m conflicted. Part of me is thinking, “You know what, you’ve got a pretty cool thing going on here - links that other people think are interesting, the odd issue being brought up. You know, taking what’s neat out in the world and commenting on it” - If that’s true; if I’ve really got something decent going on, maybe I should be taking off the blocking I do for Google and open this thing up a wee bit more.
But, if I do that, I won’t be comfortable at all discussing personal issues. I still feel like this is a pretty backwater slice of the internet, and that most anyone reading it probably knows me in person.
The thing is, every once in a while, I DO want to post on a more personal topic. So, I think to myself, what if I started a SECOND blog, with registration required to read it, that would just be available to people I know. This place could become a bit more open and public, and the “secondary blog” could become more personal. However, that’d be a gigantic pain in the ass for everybody, just to see my personal belly aching.
So… not sure what to do, I’m leaning towards “Just leave it as is”; but having that debate going on is distracting nonetheless (sort of like when you’re enrolled in a course, but you think you’re going to drop it. So long as you’re deciding, you really aren’t doing any work in the course).
