Well. . . . Sorry.

Here I am. Once again sitting at the old computer writing about writing a blog. If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, then you know my posting habits are, well, to be honest, sporadic. I am sorry to those who want to read my stuff (Seriously, why do you torture yourself like that?) and all that. I have, of late, been dry for ideas and whatnot. There have been times when I wake up in the morning and am thinking of a really good topic to blog about. I can see me writing it out, making the most awesome points as I solve whatever social/political/moral/Lego problem that I happen to be focused on.

Then I fully wake up and return to being, well, me. I am not a philosopher, but I think deeply. I am not a guru, but I have taught. I have no great wisdom to impart. . . . Yeah. We’ll stop there. All I can think of is ‘but I fart’ and I don’t want that juvenile “humor” in my blog. I mean, this is a serious forum for serious discussion. Not some dick and fart factory.

Right?

In all honesty, since so much has happened since I last posted, Newton, fiscal cliff, the 113th congress already failing, to name a few, I’ve been busy working and I’m looking for another part-time job to supplement our finances. In truth, this leaves little time to devote to something I once held a great passion for. I love this blog and I want it to succeed (and by that, I mean regular posts and regular readers). To be noted for something other than depressing well-life-is-shit-woe-is-me posts. I’ve had enough of those and I think you (two? three?) readers have too.

I cannot with any certainty claim to offer interesting or insightful thoughts on anything. I cannot promise you’ll be entertained when you come here and read these words. I can only promise that I will do my best to entertain, enlighten, and, with any luck, make you laugh.

Warmest Regards,
WonderGoon

    Well, I tried to respond to this the other day via my iPad (which ain’t all that anymore) and lost it all. Pissed me off to say the least. I will try to recall what I said. 🙂

    If you want consistent readers, don’t question why they are here to read your blog. There’s obviously something they connect to with you and will bring them back for more. Write this blog for you. Share whatever is on your mind. Rant about work, share your thoughts on political matters, whatever, just write for YOU. You don’t know who you may touch by typing out your words, even though they may never say a word. I have finally accepted that no one will ever comment on my blog, but I don’t write it for anyone else. I air my grievances on my blog and share fun things going on in my life.

    If you truly want something to be popular, don’t make it about you. I have a number of blogs and the ones who are doing the best have nothing to do with me. Or, at least, not directly to do with me. The paranormal blog I started has over 500 visitors a day even without us updating things consistently. My British blog has 20 followers now. So if you really want to make your mark on the Internet, take yourself out of the equation.

    I’m thrilled to learn you finally landed a job. I hope it’s one you truly find rewarding and isn’t just a means to an end. I miss reading your blog, but I won’t lecture you to write more often. That’s entirely up to you.

      First off, welcome back! We haven’t spoken in a long while and I hope everything is good with you.

      As to the post, I seem to be detecting a pattern with me and what I view as my inability to keep readers. The only constant is Me. And, as you’ve said, (paraphrasing) I need to get out of my own way.

      Thanks, Ysbyrd.

    Yes, things are very good with me, thank you. 🙂 So, are we going to think of something new and exciting to transform this blog into or perhaps start from scratch?
