I decided over the weekend that I'm going to stop the blog.
It feels like work, and I'm retired.
Oh, I like to spread information that I find interesting. But people who seek it out will find it anyway, and I'm just annoying those who don't want to know. And I just don't touch that much of the universe so I'm not going to be spreading anything all that far. I'm not going to change the world.
I started out this blog in 2004 because Girlfriend had one. But she stopped hers soon thereafter. Early on it was kind of therapy. I printed bad poems, uploaded some of my songs, some of which were okay, I think. I've written some of my favorite conspiracy theories, but they've all pretty much proven to be true and nothing's changed. Oh well.
I used to write top ten lists of songs I liked, but I don't feel like it anymore. Music Fridays were my favorites.
Friends and anyone else interested who has my email or phone number or even address can find me. Then there's that Facebook thing.
I'd like to spend more time on music and writing, but not this writing. Of course, stopping one thing doesn't necessarily mean I'll put the free time to good use, and with or without the blog I've got plenty of free time.
So I'm just going to ease away from this and see what's next. Unless I change my mind, in which case I'll start up another blog. This one has gone on for almost seven years now.
