My blogging has been a bit spotty of late, and I feel I should apologize. A long time ago I set myself a quota of three pieces per day, seven days a week, and for the most part I’ve kept up with that. But over the last week or so, I’ve often let a day go by with but a single piece.
It’s that darned real life intruding.
As I said a while ago, I received a very remarkable offer from my Day Job that involved relocating to a whole ‘nother part of the state. That was less than two weeks ago. I’ve accepted the offer (and the money) and spent two of my days off 75 miles from home, scouting out new places to live. In about two weeks, I intend to pack up everything I’ve accumulated in the last 15+ years living in Manchester and hauling myself up to the Vermont border (giving me a whole new bunch of liberals to mock).
And while I’m not actively working on this huge change, it’s in the back of my mind, distracting me from what ought to be my primary focus — writing for Wizbang.
For example, I had 3/4 of a piece on the Iraq Survey Group’s report written when the site went down and “the dog ate my homework.” I rewrote about a quarter of it, but haven’t had the time to go back and finish it — and now, I’m wondering if it just might be better to let it go, as too much time has passed.
But writing here doesn’t pay the bills, the day job does. And making this transfer work will keep paying the bills.
So for the next month or so, I will try to keep up with my posting here at Wizbang. There will be days when I will be hard-pressed to get even a single piece up. (Here’s a heads-up: if all goes as I plan it, January 1 will be a VERY busy day for me and the only things that might go up will be things I’ll have written in advance and put “in the can” for the day.)
