It ain’t easy, this blogging thing.
If you care about clean, crisp communication, it takes time. If you care about being relevant, it takes time. Way too much time — especially if you have a “real” job.
My week away was refreshing. There was the holiday with family followed by the opening day of deer season in Pennsylvania. In between, I managed 16 hours of grading class projects, raked a ton of leaves, and helped install the snow fence on the east shore of Sandy Lake.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish without the burden of a blog.
My unwired week so energized me that I’m taking another week away from the blog — just to keep the buzz going. I’ll use the time to catch up on work at the “real” job and to devote full attention to my students during these final 7 days of classes.
Yeah, I may even sneak in one more day of deer hunting before I stow the old Model 70 for the season. I promise, no dead deer pictures.
