My Modest Experiment


It started by chance 2 weeks ago.  I didn’t post a blog.  First I missed in over 3 years.  It was unintentional, but it happened.  Then 1 week stretched into 2 weeks, and now it is Thursday of the third week.

Funny thing: no one–not one soul–e-mailed me, called me, posted a comment on my blog about where is my weekly offering.  Nada.  Zip.  Zero.  Zilch.

That left me wondering: is anyone actually reading these ruminations and musings anymore?

Life moves on.  Things are getting dull out here, I guess.  No more funny obits, backyard chicken wars, oddball Utah happenings.  Only one Mayan end-of-the-world date (and we’re still here).  I find myself scrounging for tidbits to write about, so perhaps that’s why I purposely let 1 week slide into 2.  To see what would happen.   The world didn’t end, though my former home on the east coast got pounded with snow storms.

So that leaves me with a dilemma.  Do I continue to try to post weekly or do I post when I actually have something I’d like to say, knowing no one might read it?  For the time being, I’m leaning toward posting something worthwhile, and if that means skipping weeks here and there, I think my 4 potential readers will forgive me.  So, having written that, I want to thank those who have stuck with me and I’ll notify you in Facebook (as I usually did) when I post a blog entry.  Or, you can check back from time to time to see if there’s something new.  Everything is archived, so if you want to revisit a post from, say, 2 years ago, you can.

Perhaps once the Olympics are over and spring has arrived, there’ll be something to share.

Chapter One of this adventure was enjoyable, at least for me, so we’ll see what happens in Chapter Two, when I post only when there’s some riveting reason.
