Been Thinking About Leaving Long Enough To Change My Mind

(blog title is a Rodney Crowell tune by the way)

Well, it is a long weekend here in Canada, and so I thought I'd blow the dust off my blog and see what's left. One week going blog quiet led to another and another as it was an unintentional break brought on by fatigues and lack of time as 2009 is turning out to be just as cruddy as 2008. I thought about hanging it up for good as I don't have much left to say, but I still enjoy writing and reviewing movies and don't truly want to abandon it altogether. So, it appears I'm at a bit of a quandary as I contemplate the direction of my blog, if there is one at all. Life fatigue vs minor enjoyments and all that. Something had to give, and it's usually the stuff I enjoy as history repeats itself. Needless to say, posts will probably be rather infrequent for a while as I deal with the BS that is life. A post a week should be doable, but even that seems daunting at times.

However, a discussion on an episode of Diggnation gave me an idea on how I want to reinvent my web presence. We'll see if anything comes of it though. I did buy a few domain names tonight for fun, so it might lead to something.

Either way, if nothing else comes out, big thanks to all those that have read and commented. It's been a fun four years, and I hope there's more. I've got a story rattling in my head, and other things I want to try, and I want to blog about them too. However, as the song says - "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need."

You gotta do what you gotta do. (And who says you have to post on a schedule?)

As for thinking about leaving, I've been doing that again when it comes to work. I've been with the same organization for almost 12 years, and I don't know where I'd go, especially in this economy, but -- much as I like kids -- I'd like to work in a kid-free environment. Preferably somewhere quiet!

Hope life turns around for you, and soon.

I agree with Keanan... this pressure to post something new is overrated. If it helps you get around to doing something you enjoy, great. But if it is just adding pressure, cut the pressure, but don't give up on the fun.

I'm a bit behind in my Diggnation episodes... which episode are you referring to? :-)
