So, I started thinking about why I have such a hard time blogging. I was in need of a good excuse. Blogger Eric Burke had an interesting one. He said that Twitter had caused him to blog less. Another notable blogger, Michael Easter of CodeToJoy fame, was also of the opinion that Twitter was causing people to stop blogging. In fact, Michael wouldn't even go on Twitter because he was so sure that it was killing blogging. As a side note, I was thinking that somebody should write a Twitter client that would cross post your tweets to the comment section of a target blog. "Wheels down on your blog..." Where was I - oh yeah, Twitter as an excuse for not blogging. Well, I tried that one on for size but it didn't really fit since I hardly ever post on Twitter and when I do it's usually just to reply to someone else. So, I kept looking...
Then, I figured, well, I just started a new job and I don't have time to blog. That sounded like a reasonable reason, except that I'm currently working from home and avoiding 2 1/2 hours on the road each day. So I actually have more time than I've had for a while.
Then, the interesting thought hit me that I don't have anything interesting to blog about. That one didn't last long. With all that is going on in the 2G community and with the cool stuff I'm working on at Contegix, that was a poor excuse for an excuse. So, I'm still stuck inexcusably underblogged.
I'll keep on looking for that perfect excuse, but in the meantime I'll try to start blogging more. At least this one should get Ben off my back for a while. :)
