Well, I think it’s become obvious to all and sundry that I am not cut out for a blogging career. I think I’ve even figured out why.
If I’m going to write up my thoughts and opinions, I do it for pay, not for free. What I want when I go online is a conversation, not a chance to lecture — which means newsgroups, or my guestbook. I know there are blogs now that allow other people to post in them, but even that just seems so much slower and clunkier than a newsgroup.
And it doesn’t help that I’m using a slow modem and Blogger is a busy site; adding something here is too much like work.
I’m not going to give it up completely, or take down what I’ve got, but I’m not going to pretend I’ll be posting any more regularly or more often in the future. I’ll post when the whim strikes me, whether that’s twice a day or twice a year.
Thanks for reading.
