For those of you still checking in faithfully over the last, what? Three weeks? You deserve to know what’s been going on.
I’ve been busy.
I know. Life’s busy and if you’re going to be hosting your own site, then you owe it to the good folks who have come to depend on the sage advice, probing questions and stupid videos that you post to actually dispense these things.
Inquiring minds want to know.
I actually faced a bit of a dilemma with the whole situation. I’ve been so busy with pastoring and then my personal life (had you heard I’ve taken up cycling?) and then my family’s personal lives (I’m now the chauffeur for … never mind. If you know, you know and if you don’t, I don’t think I’m allowed to elaborate on the blog) that I have been too exhausted to write in the evenings when I typically craft my blog posts.
I considered shutting it down.
I thought that my occasional post there my tide over my writing jones. Scratch the itch. But then, no. I don’t think it will.
Then, I thought I might start an entirely new blog. An anonymous cycling blog from the eyes of a newbie cyclist. So much uncovered territory. So many obvious and yet unassaulted targets in the cycling community. You have no idea. I’m not even talking about the Lycra, either.
Still might do that, but then, maybe not.
If I’m too tired to write about the established aspects of my life, what makes me think an anonymous and yet unread cycling blog would drive me to shake off the web of slumber and expose the spandex clad, two wheeled, helmeted, free wheeling crowd to an audience that doesn’t even exist?
The writing’s the thing. It’s not the subject of the blog. Do I want to write, and if so, will I set aside time to do it?
I have decided that this is worth that and, frankly, it is you who have shown me that I should.
You’ve not said a word. No notes. No comments. No email.
But you’ve come back. Daily for over a month with barely a word from me beyond unfulfilled promises of posts to come, you still drop in and read what I have not written.
And since you’ve apparently cared what I have to not say, I think you’ll be immenantly more interested in the things that I hope to say, so…
I’ve decided to be a blogger.
By that I mean not just the random thought or question but something interesting – or at least something I think is interesting – more than once a week.
There you have it.
Sorry, for the impromptu time off. Thanks for sticking around. See you soon.
