Twenty Four Posts And A Wake Up

I've made 975 posts since the inception of this blog. Some good, many mediocre, a few truly bad ones, and maybe one or two of those posts has touched someone out there.

I find here of late that I'm falling back pretty fast on my posting. There was a time when I was firing off two posts a day, it seemed, and more were fighting tooth and claw to get their air time. Now I seem to be doing good to manage once every few days. And it's not that there are fewer stories floating around in my head; they're still there, still jostling for attention. I think, however, that I have taken a step away from writing whatever enters the hallowed halls of my mind, and taken one toward filtering a little bit, taking out the absolute detritus, with the intent of finding more pearls to deliver.

And maybe I'm just a lazy sod.

I know some of your posts have touched me immensely. Seriously, there have been a couple that brought tears to my eyes.

And I know exactly what you mean about stepping back and filtering in the hopes of finding more pearls.

Just don't stop blogging altogether, eh?
