I’ve been slacking on the blog. Or at least so I’ve been told. A lot. I have learned something quite interesting though:

If you don’t have a job, you’re not as interested in blogs.

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not that the blogosphere isn’t interesting, but blogs are a great distraction from work. When I was working I had a computer tethered to me at all times—whether I was at home or at work. I’d have my RSS Reader checking all my favorite blogs every 15 minutes to let me know when someone posted something new. And during those dry moments when no one was posting, I’d churn out a couple choice links like nine out of 10 Chinese calling into a suicide-prevention hotline in the capital Beijing are getting the busy tone, or a player in Switzerland’s top division loses a finger after a goal celebration went horribly wrong and call it a day.
So yeah. Pity me. I have a blogging problem. I’ll be starting a 12 step program, and hopefully back to regular blogging soon… promise… :)

  1. very true. now that i have a job i actually like and that doesn’t involve hours of doing nothing, like the last one, i haven’t been reading or posting as much. it’s not bad though… i really never had anything good to say… though you still need to show me this RSS feeder thing.
