Silence is the Death of Blogs

So, it's been a week since my last post, and it wasn't much of a post either. What does that mean? Well, if I've learned anything in my time blogging, it's that silence can kill a blog. Once the decay sets in it takes a lot more energy to regain the ground you've lost than simply posting regularly.

I guess that proves that I can't claim ignorance. The real truth of the matter is that I've been working so much that the blog really does have to take a back burner to everything else. There are few things that I can really make time for. And I suppose I've opted to take strolls out the the garden with my wife in the cool of the evening instead of being cramped in my office, where I spend the rest of my day. When I tell you that I've been working a lot, I really do mean that I've been working A LOT. So far this week I worked 17.5 hours on Monday and 16.5 yesterday. I'm scheduled to work all the way until next Friday. Yes, through the weekend and all next week.

This isn't one of those "I'll be gone for a while" posts. I guess it's part rant, part explanation. But more than that, it's a post to break the silence. I don't really see myself as a successful blogger at this point, but it's been a fun adventure so far. I don't much like the idea of just giving it up. Not yet, anyway. I've met so many interesting people and seen some very interesting blogs.

More than anything, thanks for stopping by. I'll try to post a little more often, even if I feel a bit burnt out and tired.
