I have been neglecting my poor blog for too long. Looking back through previous posts, even as far back as when I first started this particular incarnation of my blog, I get nostalgic for the times when I used to write far more often (and far more interesting items) than I have been recently. Some days (shock!), I could post two or even three times!!! Now I’m lucky if I post once every three weeks. I’m hoping to change that and begin writing far more frequently. And it seems that a number of bloggers are longing for the good ole days of blogging including my friend Mr. Anchovy.
Facebook and Twitter have lost their lustre for me. Oh sure, you’ll find me on there “liking” something or “retweeting” something witty someone else has said but to be honest, I just feel blah about both forms of social media. If I was a news outlet, a celebrity (only in my own head, ha!), or a business, yer darned tootin I’d be all over both Twitter and Facebook. For my own personal use though? Pffffft. There’s little point. It’s an effective way of following my find out what’s happening with my favourite TV programs or getting quick tidbits and current updates on news stories around the world. However, I just don’t have the energy or desire to try to be as witty as Twitter seems to need me to be. And I don’t think my life is currently interesting enough to share regular updates on Facebook. I won’t be giving up either account but I just won’t be there as often.

I also think that the old blog template might need a little updating. I want it crisp and simple, easy to navigate but eye catching as well. So, for any of you who are still reading, change is coming!
