This blog used to be a seven-day-a-week affair. Many months ago, without any fanfare, I stopped posting on Sundays. I received a few emails from people who wondered if perhaps I’d forgotten or something, but it doesn’t seem to have been a big deal.
Now I’ve decided to stop posting on Saturdays, too. Simply put: I’m too busy with other things to keep coming up with six days of original content. I don’t want this little meeting space to become such a burden that I no longer enjoy doing it and you no longer enjoy reading it. Less is more, in this case, and I think this will be better for all of us.
I started this blog approximately 100 years ago as a place where I could get some much-needed experience at writing in a different style than broadcast news. Since then, I’ve written three books and for many years now I’ve been writing a bi-weekly newspaper column for Sun Media. This little piece of real estate in cyberspace is still important to me and I’m extremely grateful that you come to visit, but with everything else in work and life, I need a bit of a break. So I’ve decided to treat it more like a workday, weekday venture, and I hope you understand. And I hope you’ll still come back for my – with a nod to the memory of George Carlin who coined the phrase – brain droppings! Thank you.
