Friends, it has probably become obvious to you that my interest in the blog has waned, that my life has become more full with other matters, or that other social media have risen in importance in how I express myself.
All are true.
And frankly, the blog has suffered. The plain truth is that when the guy who owns the blog doesn't participate, the guest bloggers feel a hell of a lot less motivated to contribute. I know this, because I am a guest blogger elsewhere, and this reality certainly applies there.
A blog is a demanding mistress, and maintaining one is not for the faint of heart or the casually involved.
And so, it is with heavy heart....
that it is nearly time for me to GET MY HEAD OUT OF MY ASS AND GET THIS PLACE HOPPING AGAIN.
No surrender. No wussing out.
I have a couple of projects that are destroying every waking hour right now, but they will pass later in the summer, and I look to re-energize things here to support having a place for engaged intellects to come in order to read the best in politics, culture, and social commentary.
I will soon be reaching out to new guest bloggers to see who might wish to join the team, and I will be corresponding with our current team members to see what their level of interest is in amping things up a bit.
We have work to do friends.
