From time to time, the blogging here at Ye Olde Cruftbox gets sparse. I tend not to want to post what-I-had-for-lunch entries just to fill space.
Between my expanded role at work and the start of school for the kids, my energy can get used up well before I have a chance to do quality blogging, TV watching, or even video gaming. For the last month or so, I've even stopped playing Warcraft since it takes up more effort and energy than I'm willing to spare.
Lucky for me, my work does not run at internet speed (for the most part) and when I start to burn out, I can slow down and reenergize. I won't be an internet billionaire, but at least I won't have a heart attack.
A lot of friends DO run their lives at internet speed. Constantly multi-tasking. Constantly scanning the web. Constantly reading syndication feeds 'cause the web is just too slow. Constantly updating dozens of sites.
I understand the feelings. You want to keep people entertained, even at the expense of entertaining yourself. When I find myself racking my head to come up with something to blog about, that is the time NOT to be blogging.
Actually, I'm glad to see that Jason realizes that you can't live this way indefinitely. Jason's taking a break for the blogging grind to find himself a little sanity. I wish more people on the A, B, C, and Z-list blogs would see the same thing and step off the merry-go-round and recharge. The bloggers might not see it when they lose the passion, but their readers do.
Props to Jason. Of course, it may just be a ploy for him to have more time to prepare for the Burning Crusades expansion in World of Warcraft...
And now for a drawing of my lunch today at Famima !!
