As readers of this blog are aware, back in June, I announced that I was putting this blog on hiatus for the summer. It didn’t go quite as I expected, as I announced the obvious in August, that I was going to be intermittently posting. Still, all the factors that were behind the hiatus still were there, which is, my work.
While most people regard summer as “vacation time,” for me it’s the time when my work schedule goes into overdrive, and I’m away from computers for long periods of time. All of which is not conducive to regular blogging.
I thought that this year might be a little better than usual, in that I could manage to keep a somewhat regular schedule, both here and at Blue Wave News. What I didn’t expect was a 500 year flood to start the year, along with personnel turnover at work. Which meant delays in getting started, and increased work to cover the gaps. My blogging plans had to be thrown out, because when you get to a point where “something’s got to give,” the what “gives” is the part that isn’t paid. I thought things had settled down, but then Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee put another wrench into the gears.
That part of the job is mostly over now, and I’m going to be spending more time in front of a computer. You can expect to see me start gearing up as a blogger in the next few weeks, although some people may take exception to or be offended by what I write.
I have been paying attention to the news, and in particular what the Republicans have been up to.
Along with that, what the so-called “professional Left” and “fauxgressives” are trying to sell.
So expect to see more of me, here, and at Blue Wave News. The cure for the summertime blues is that the summer is over, and I’m going to be getting into blogging mode again.
