Recently I’ve read in a couple of places about blogs being deserted. I can certainly understand why. After blogging for a little over 2 years about the machinations of our government, I’ve been burning out and I’ve thought seriously about throwing in the towel, myself.
But, though I don’t have that many regular readers and I wouldn’t leave behind nearly the hole that some other blogs would, I just can’t bring myself to axe the site completely.
So, as you may have noticed, I’m changing my focus. Instead of writing about the government regularly [though I may insert the occasional political or news item] I’m moving toward posting possible solutions to the myriad of problems the world faces today. Thus the articles on bicycle generators, stoves that can be donated to Darfur, sites where free donations can be given just by clicking, etc.
And I do still love to opine about history, politics, religion, etc. so I'll be airing my **ahem** 'wisdom', such as it is, on various topics. :)
I think I’ve found my new niche. It will be a way to make a contribution while staving off the depression I’ve been finding myself sinking into while researching articles on what our politicians are digging us deeper and deeper into.
BTW—if I do decide to stop entirely, I won’t do it without saying g’bye. And, no matter what happened, I would continue to visit the blogs of others just to stay in touch with all the friends I’ve made around blogsville.
Still, sometimes, it DOES get to be a bit much as I watch the earth liquifying and spinning down the drain. :(
