So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Blogging Blues

I really do feel pretty guilty. My husband has ceased asking me daily when I'm going to blog again.

I mean "really blog."


I was a prolific blogger. Posting at least every day and sometimes a few times a day. It might be some meaningful insight into life or a news story I stumbled upon and wanted to share my opinion. Heck, it might be the dumbass who cut me off that inspired the tirade.

But, lately, it just doesn't seem to be there. I found Facebook and something I really like about it is the instant feedback. People actually comment on there. Wow. What a concept. Here, I just get hateful remarks about my fat ass or whiny nature (for the most part) and an occasional kudos.

So, it just seems like Facebook has taken over the time I spent blogging. I'm all about instant gratification, you know.

But, I'm going to try. Hubby and I will be out of pocket for our much belated 10th anniversary getaway this coming weekend and I'm too cheap to splurge on Internet access. So, it figures that I try to make an effort to blog again only to be foiled by the cash-strapped wallet in my purse.

And, adding to the woes of blogging, behold the CNN story about yet another blogger who was dooced. So sad. I've seen it happen to a few people I know. Being self-employed, it isn't likely to happen to me, but I watched Kim DuToit (of A Nation of Riflemen) lose investors for a big project he was going to do because of his blog. So, I know it can happen. I've lost friends over differences in opinions that couldn't be reconciled - and it all started from the blog.

So, *taking a deep breath* I'm not going public with our identities. Hell, most of ya'll know who I'm am. I met one reader at kindergarten round-up at my school. That was weird to have someone walk up and say "Hey, you're Army of Mom, aren't you?" and I met another fella who said he was meeting me from Army of Mom and didn't realize it was me. :) That was my favorite, I think. He thought AoM had connected us professionally and didn't realize I was, indeed, AoM in the flesh.

So, anyway ... I'll do my best to start blogging again with regularity. I'm looking for my millionth hit. I need to see how far away I am from that. Not blogging will hurt, but I'll work at it.

p.s. Stupid Blogger is taking forever to post pics, too. Another reason why I get disgusted and just stop trying .... ARGH. I know the service is free, but damn.

UPDATE: I'm at 1.9 million hits. Damn! So, I only need about 40,000 more hits to be at 2 million. WOW!

    I read your stuff... I don't comment much, if ever, I guess. But MoK (one of my bestest buddies) pointed me in your direction. It's been fun to watch Little Bit learn how to beat up the bigger kids. ;-) I'm a big advocate of self defense. Anyway, I'm being abrupt cuz I have a migraine, but I wanted to let you know you're not ignored.
