This picture of Skink and Mole was posted on 24.com blogs on 28th February, 2007 as the first one I managed to get right. The two are still very much around – in more ways than one, because they have both grown a lot more rotund in the four years that have followed.
The discovery of my four-year Bloggiversary on the other forum has given rise to some thoughts, discoveries and decisions. The main decision is to cool it considerably on blogging for a while.
I observe that in those heady early days I was posting about three times a day, and keeping up with visits and responses based on at least four times the current activity on my blogs. I also managed a fairly active business and social life, as well as squeezing in writing and composing.
At present, for reasons that completely escape me, if I blog even at the current far less active levels I find that other things – most significantly novel writing – seem to get bypassed. This is not good. A writer who doesn’t regularly come up with new material becomes about as memorable as last week’s dinner. There is a limit on the time the leftovers will remain fresh enough to serve.
Thus, I have decided to concentrate for a while on getting my works-in-progress, which have now remained in progress for a startling number of years without significant progress, to progress. Only as a reward for good progress will I progress back into Blogworld – at least to keep in touch.
So this is a kind of au revoir.
