Happee New Year Everybodee!

Well, you should all have recovered from your hang-overs by now and just about had your fill of college football (not yet? really, you need to get out more, imho :). My number one resolution this year is to blog less and live more. I am cutting way back on my cable TV subscription (No more MSNBC - buh-bye Rachel, and no more "Intervention"). So this is a fair warning to those of you who read this blog, there will be fewer postings in 2009, fewer rants and less raving about the political scene. This has little to do with the fact that this blogger expects to have much less to rant and rave on about under the Obama administration, although I fully expect that to be the case. Rather it is based on a determination that I am spending too much time in front of my computer. I have virtually quit reading books, except for the excruciatingly long waits in my doctors' offices.

Between FaceCrack and MySpace and my other e-mail account (I decided at some point during late 2007 that I needed a separate account for non-work related e-mails - a very wise decision), I spend hours everyday logged on. So if you are checking this blog daily, first I want to say, "thank you very much." I truly appreciate your loyalty to my blog, and your interest in the opinions, verbiage, photos, collages and quotes that I post on my blog, but please don't expect more than a single post each week. That's all I can manage. I don't know what day of the week it will be when I'll be posting a new entry, so for the time being you'll just have to keep checking in and seeing if there is anything new. I know, I know, I am sure to lose a few loyal readers by making this move, but in my new year's list of priorities my blog has dropped down (way down) on the list of how I want to spend my time. In fact, I have come to believe that most bloggers are little more than self-absorbed, narcissists who check their stat counter a few too many times a day to see who has read their most recent post. There are exceptions to this rule, namely blogs that serve a purpose - like The Huffington Post which serves as a news aggregator, or FourFreedoms which represents an entire community and serves as an online meeting place for those who choose to visit and join in on that site. I am talking more about the solo bloggers out there who imagine the entire online world to be hanging on their every word. I have been there, but no longer want to live there, so I am moving, on...

It is time to put a little distance between myself and all those navel gazers out there who will no doubt continue to post and post ad nauseam... Carry on, and please don't take offense at my opinion of so many bloggers out there. Writers write, and bloggers blog. Me, I'm gonna try a different way of living for awhile...
