Please note:  This week’s writing is being posted in all my blogs as it is important to all of my published blogs.


You may have noticed that there has not been a blog post in any of my blogs for the last couple of weeks.  There are a few reasons for that.


Among the most important reasons are the following:

  • Weather plays havoc with my equipment so I remain offline and disconnected when the heat is high.
  • My brain had run out of ideas to write about for a while.
  • I was evaluating the stats to determine the future of my blogs.


Certainly anybody who has been reading my blogs recently will realize that I have had a difficult last couple of months.  While I tried to put as much of a positive spin on what was happening around me, it seemed that I failed with that attempt.  I don’t feel that I really did anything wrong, I was just misinterpreted.


As I mentioned in the past, I am always open to topic ideas in any of my blogs.  So far, I have received only 1 idea which I plan on discussing in the next month or so.  I am also open to guest bloggers who want to step up and write articles for any of my blogs.  Since this has been a one-person operation, sometimes my quality seems to have waned at times.  If anybody is interested in submitting ideas or wants to be a guest writer, feel free to email me at the address at the right.  Please note that I accept both anonymous and named submissions, if you want the credit for it.


My other thing I have been doing is re-evaluating how frequently I post to my blogs.  Usually, my writings have been on Wednesdays allowing me to judge the acceptance on Thursdays.  Lately, it seems that the numbers have been fairly light and the lack of “likes” and comments make me wonder what the public really want and what they don’t.


So, effective immediately, I have decided that I will be publishing a lot less in the foreseeable future.  My plan is to update my blogs approximately twice a month per blog.  However, this number could go up or down depending on desire of topics and anything that I come across that I deem to be important to discuss. I also plan on staggering the posting of my blogs so that both are not posted in the same week, but that could change as well. This choice was not easy, but I felt that it was in everybody’s best interest including my own sanity.


Overall, I expect that both the “Staples” blog and the “Rants” blog will continue for a long time as long as I take it a little slower.  Hopefully, everyone will agree on that.
