I Missed An Important Date

Posted by Simple Dude | Posted in Blogging, Writing | Posted on 21-08-2012

Nearly a week ago an anniversary came and went without me hyping it, acknowledging it or even remembering it.  My two year Blog-O-Versary.  I started this stinkin’ thing on a whim back on August 15, 2010.

When it launched I didn’t tell any friends, family or even my own girlfriend – commonly referred to here as my “Lady Friend”.  In fact I wrote here for almost two months before telling her about it at all.  To this day she is the only person in my offline life that knows about it.

My very first post got zero views.

The second post got one view, though I suspect that was just me checking it from my phone.  Lame.

The third post actually got a few views and a comment.  Had it came up with zero views I suspect I would have started to get bored with it – and my fourth post may have been my last.  That would have saved me a lot of time… time spent on something more productive…  like perfecting a black jack system that could have broken the backs of the biggest casinos in Vegas.

This could have been me…

But that’s ok – I would have missed out on meeting all of you!

Truthfully, I’m not spending as much time on this blog as I used to… it’s down to just 2 – 3 posts per week.  This is happening for two main reasons:

1.  I am starting to run out of things to write about.  That is due in part to flat out laziness but also due to a lack of interesting things happening to me lately.  Yes, my life has become a bit boring.

2.  I am busy as fuck.  Sorry for the cussing, but it’s the best and only way for me to say it.  My job has become very busy and even when I’m not working, I’m doing things around our new house.  I’m not complaining… I enjoy working.  I enjoy doing things around the house.  But when you’re this busy, something has to give.  That something has been the blog.

Plus I have been TRYING to write a non-fiction “comedy” book.  Comedy gets the “quote” marks because I question whether or not it’s truly FUNNY.  We’ll see.  You’ll all get the first crack at it if and when it’s done.

On a related side note, I am pretty sure I will be releasing the book under my real name within the next couple months.  Yes, I’ll be coming out of the uhhh…  blog closet…  so to speak.

Anyway, it’s been a fun two years.   I’m not going anywhere, but I hope you’re cool with me cutting back these days.  While I don’t have the time to comment on other blogs as much as I would like, I do read lots of them.  And I truly appreciate every single page view and comment I get here because, after all, I do have the best commenters on the net.  It’s true.
