Remember Me?

It’s been over 3 months since my last post. By any standard, that’s pretty pathetic output. It’s particularly weak given the fact that I tend to think in blog posts.

Really, I do. I’ve written many a captivating post while in the middle of a long run, or driving down the highway, or cutting the grass. Unfortunately, by the time I get in front of the computer, typically late at night after everyone else is in bed, the inspiration will have faded, or will at least be clouded by fatigue. Even more frequently, I’ll fall victim to the siren song of work emails, and by the time I’ve finished wading through those, I will have little creative gas left in the tank for posting.

But 3 months?! I’m turning over a new leaf. After all, writing something that I’m happy with, and occasionally learning that what I’ve written has resonated with someone, is far more fulfilling than most of the things that I’ve let take its place. It’s time to reprioritize.

I won’t promise daily posting, but I will commit to regular posting. (And no, by “regular” I don’t mean once every 3 months.) While I know that my modest readership has dwindled during my hiatus (even my wife has threatened to remove my dormant blog from her Favorites), I’m hoping there are still a few of you out there.

So, I’m calling on you to help me get the ball rolling. At the bottom of this post, I’m setting out a list of potential blog post titles. Let me know which ones to start with, and I’ll go on from there.

In no particular order, here are some that I’ve been working on but have never committed to paper … er, computer. And yes, I realize that most of the titles are cryptic:

Live vs. Living
Swallowed by the Dragon
Death Race
Bobcat to Eagle to Tiger
Why Extreme?
Practice Part IV
Average Life
Greek Like Me

    Average Life and Greek Like Me sound charming, although i’m curious as to what you’ve got to say on Swallowed by the Dragon. hmm..

      Hey Marjorie,

      I just realized that your last comment was probably in response to the “Do I know you?” comment that preceded it. To clarify, that one wasn’t from me to you, it was from my wife to me, chiding me about lack of blog output. Sorry about any confusion! Hope to hear from you again in response to future posts – now all I have to do is write them!

    oh yes, why didn’t that occur to me? and i often get mixed up with blogger’s name and title of blog. please pardon me for my inexperience and confusion. i’ve got to admit i’m relatively new to all this.
    one thing is perfectly clear though(judging from your previous posts), you are one excellent writer and i hope to read something new from you one of these days.
    You’ll certainly hear from me again ,sir 🙂
    thanks a lot!
