The hardest thing about getting out of the practice of writing on this blog is getting started again. This latest round of not writing has gotten me thinking about all the blogs I used to read, blogs that slowly faded away, ending not with a bang but with long, long silence.
The buildup to the the end of each of these blogs were all very different. Apologies for not writing. Promises to write more. Talk of increased workloads, other projects, an admission that there seemed to be nothing more to say.
Sometimes other blogs were involved.
All this is not the buildup to my pulling the plug on this blog.
But, man, I sure could use a few amusing anecdotes.
