I needed a blogging break. No big, grand reason for this -- this wasn't like the LJ Content Strike a few years ago -- but I was tired and desirous of taking time off. It reminded me how long I have been blogging -- in the late 1990s, long before this journal, I was sending about a monthly e-mail to maybe two, three dozen family members and friends. I called them "blast e-mails"; basically, I had a mailing list. It took several months of having chris_walsh as a place to talk for me to increase my blogging frequency. It got to the point around 2008 where I had to tell myself It's okay, Chris, you don't have to post every day. Though I like posting, and I like writing. It's always the starting that's tough (no duh), but over and over I've noticed that writing makes me feel better -- once I start doing it.
People who follow me on Facebook and Twitter know I haven't been too far away, either. I was most limited in my Internet use in the first half of last week, which was probably good as those were busy days in general.
Basically, I've had time to think about stuff unrelated to my blog. Maybe I'll write about that stuff. Maybe not. But I keep finding stuff to write about.
Let me know if there's anything major I've missed.
All the best, all of you.
