Of Blogs and other Things
I enjoy writing this blog. It connects me with a larger community. My readers are great people. Over the years it's allowed me to share my knowledge, opinions and projects. Good fun.
Lately I've had some time to reflect on where I am right now in my life. It's said that the unexamined life is not worth living. There is truth to that, at least as far as I'm concerned. Over the past weekend I've had the opportunity to connect with a lot of people I haven't seen in some time.
Some of my old business partners are looking into a variety of business structures that would allow us to advance our personal goals. It's very very tempting to jump back in. While we've kept in touch, my participation has been minimal. Lately I've been putting more time into those activities. I know I'm not being very specific but some things in my life are private and separate from the blog. Also, it would not be fair to my associates to blab about their business activities in my daily writing.
In short, there are only so many hours in the day. Some things have got to give. Unfortunately, as much as I love writing the blog, it's not a very lucrative pursuit. That's fine, but with recent financial set backs, the budget needs a bit more attention. When I caught myself thinking of actually doing jobs I don't like just for the money, it was a wake up call. There are other pursuits I love that have money making potential, but they need more attention that I've been giving them.
Will I stop writing this blog? Not in the near term. What could happen is that from time to time I may miss more posts than I normally do. Please be patient with me. My hope is that I can establish a good work/play balance that will allow enough time and energy for blog posts.
So it's either all that or a Gypsy woman read my Tarot and turned my life upside down.
