My father is the latest with the question.
“Why aren’t you blogging anymore?” he asked tonight. “It’s been two weeks.”
It’s unusual for my dad to quantify like that. He’s actually been counting the days. I guess it does seem significant. At one point I’d gone five or more years without missing an entry.
There are a few reasons I haven’t written. Number one is Facebook. I am frustrated to be so dependent on it. When do I post directly on Facebook or make it a blog entry? It’s never clear.
Some of your comments on Facebook show you see my blog link but only read the headline. Do you hear my ego deflating?
Beyond that I had been consumed by politics, but didn’t want to discuss it. That would be BORING.
Also had equipment troubles (solved), but didn’t want to discuss it.
I have been consumed putting together the pieces for a project I’m working on. It’s very time consuming since I’m building parts of it from the ground up. In some cases I’m stopping to learn how to wrangle a new language or rewrite code. I have enlisted a fellow weather nerd to help me amass and smash the data. In my mind the end result is cool. Can’t talk about that either.
So, a little vacation is all it is. Just a slight change of scenery.
Merv said it best, “Be right back.”
