Neglectful blogger... Again

Wow, over a year since my last post.  I really am a neglectful blogger!  Although, calling myself a blogger at all is really a bit of a stretch.  But that's another story.

There are a couple of main reasons that I haven't been updating my blog recently.  For one, I don't feel like I have much to say these days.  But a lot of people write stuff on the internet all of the time who really don't have anything to say, and that doesn't stop them!  Some of them are even paid for it, theoretically.  I guess I'd just like to think that I hold myself to a slightly higher standard when I actually "publish" something online.  (Haha)

Another reason is that I just don't spend much time at an actual computer anymore.  My job is such that I'm always up, moving around, dealing with all the minor disasters of a busy coffee shop; not sitting at a desk.  If I have idle time between tasks / disasters, I may pull out my phone and check the news / weather / Instagram, but I can't just pop open a new browser tab and work on a blog post.

Well, I guess I could work on a blog post from my phone... but... really?  There are so many more friction-free publishing and sharing platforms that were created for and optimized to phones, that it's just not worth the effort to try to write more than a few lines from my phone in between everything else.  I post to Instagram only a few times a week, occasionally Tweet, and only rarely do anything on Facebook, so actually writing a blog post is a bar too high.

Plus, I loose my train of thought too quickly!

This is actually a perfect example of reason number one for not blogging!  I've written half a page, and I haven't actually said anything that is of any use to anyone.  Oh well, at least I can be pretty sure that no one will actually take the time to read my maunderings!
