I have tended lately to blog only when I have found the time to do so rather than make the time like I once did. There are a few reasons for that, a busy job, a more settled life, and sometimes maybe a lack of inspiration. I think all bloggers face that at times. I once had delusions of being a writer and blogging was a vindication of that, there were plenty of visitors, a lot of comments and Technorati links of more than 100.
But it was hard work getting there, lots of memes done, linking to lots of people, some of whom I never read, commenting on as many blogs as possible in the hope that they would visit mine etc. And the nature of my posts keeps changing - at one stage I was trying to maintain three separate blogs but since blogger allowed the feature of merging them into one, I did that.
Lack of time has also meant that I haven't found as much time to visit those of you who I consider to be my blogging friends so first and formost I apologise for that. I do still try and return the favour of commenting back on people's blogs who show me the courtesy of doing the same and I try and visit those who follow me. But instead of daily, that tends to be something of a weekly event.
If I was to line up every post on this blog and try and put them into a category I would say that the majority may fall into the reflective category, followed by current events in my life, things that have moved and or angered me, and a bit of whimsy thrown in now and then. I once thought that there was a theme but I do tend to wander a bit more widely now in my thoguhts than I once did. I think that I've let go of some of the loneliness and anger that categorised a lot of the early stuff but what I'm moving onto I will only know when I get there.
So if there is a meme to this post then let it be this. Tell me what the theme of your blog is and how it has changed over time. I tag all those who follow me, all those I follow and anyone else who is on my blogroll or who cares to comment.
