My blogging energies are cyclical

I think they are for everyone, well almost everyone, maybe not #1 and #2.

I’ve not been blogging much lately, but this isn’t really one of those “sorry I haven’t blogged in a while post.” I think that is just the ebb and flow of life online or otherwise.  So, if I haven’t blogged to your liking just get over it and read somebody else (except Joel that’s bad for your mind).

I’ve noticed the cyclical nature of blogging energy in some of the blogs that I read by folks who are currently teaching.  It’s May. It’s time for finals. You’ve got exams to give/grade and papers to grade.  The last thing you want to sit down and do is write a blog post.

I sometimes don’t blog because I’m busy with other things (I don’t know like trying to finally finish my dissertation).  I too have been trying to take better care of myself, and that takes time.  Sometimes I’m testing out other things online to like doing more video.  Sometimes I just can’t think of anything to write about.  Sometimes a blog post would oversimplify a complex topic more than I would like.  For whatever reason, I don’t blog, Twitter, FaceBook, respond to emails, …

And, that’s okay because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and dog-gone it, people like me.

With that said, I think I feel some blogging energy coming back once again.  So, you may want to tune back in for my next peak of energy toward blog world domination … until I slack off again.
