Missing In Action

~While I've been personally feeling guilty about neglecting my own blog, I can't help but notice that a few of the other bloggers whom I follow haven't been posting new material much either. I wonder what it is? Have we grown weary of writing about stuff? Or are we just getting lazy? In my own case, it seems that I just can't find the time anymore. Blogging is almost like keeping a diary;
the kind of thing where you write down your thoughts each day and muse over the things you've done as well as the people with whom you've interacted. It should be simple and fun. When it becomes a chore, you begin to neglect it. I guess I'm going through the chore phase. Each night I tell myself "You'd better write a new post!" But I end up shutting down my laptop and going to bed instead.
~Perhaps it's because the spring and summer seasons are hectic around here and there doesn't seem to be a good block of time alone to write? Or perhaps it's because we haven't done any new projects recently so I don't have as many stories to share. Or...I'm just getting lazy. In any event, I know how disappointed I get when I go to a blog that I enjoy reading only to find that I've already read their last blog post two or three times! Maybe we've all contracted some sort of blogger virus that's keeping us from updating things for our readers? I hope the enjoyment of writing new posts hasn't run its course for me; I hope I'm just going through a phase. And I hope the bloggers I follow haven't fallen into the same trap. I'll keep looking each day, hoping for updates. And I'll keep nudging myself to get back into the swing of it. We'll see.
