It’s been days since I’ve posted here. I’ve been sick, which is partially to blame, but not completely. I have a ton of stuff starred in Google Reader and elsewhere that I’ve wanted to write about – even just quick “Linky” posts. But it feels like there’s the gravitational field pulling me away whenever I start to think about writing something. Email to read, work to do, feeds to catch up on. Maybe I’m just having a slump. This blog isn’t dead or dying – never will, if I have anything to say about it. But maybe Paul Boutin is on to something – my activity on places like Twitter, FriendFeed, etc. have definitely had an impact. His point is that if you blog for the fame, recognition, link love, and money, it’s getting harder and harder to be “successful”. But I never have written for those reasons. This is a place for me to write my thoughts, and I don’t care a whole lot about who reads them. I mean, I love traffic, links, and feed subscribers, but for me, I love them because they represent people I interact with. People who are part of my network, my community. My friends. That’s the payoff for me. If I cared about ad revenue or page rank or how many hits/subscribers I had, I would have given up a long time ago.
So, I’m sure my muse will come back soon. Where are you, muse?
