Thoughts on Blogging

Do you blog?

I’ve been blogging for 7 or 8 years now. I have a food blog, and I once ran a photography blog. I ran the 1ShoppingCart blog for a couple of years. And there are others.

There are 2 things that I’ve learned about blogging: 1. It’s a lot of work. 2. If you stop, even for a little while, it’s really difficult to get started again.

And that about sums up what’s been going on with this blog for the past couple of years.

My blog was hacked in 2010, and I lost a years worth of posts. I have thought about blogging here ever since… but one month bleeds into another… and here we are with the end of 2011 in sight.

Time is a funny thing. It’s really difficult to gauge how much of it you have at any given time and if flows faster the older you get.

Or maybe that’s just an excuse we like to use as we age.

I could always blame my kids, who I happily dedicate most of my free time to.

Or maybe I could just take the time to blog.
