Odds and Ends

I noticed that it's been about a year since I started this virtual-soapbox, and I wanted to take a moment to thank those of you that continue to stop by to read and comment and/or continue to suffer my musings on your respective blogs. Suffice to say, it feeds my ego to know that others do read this drivel, but (and more importantly) I do edify myself in the process. So, for this and anything else I missed, a profound and heartfelt thank-you, dear readers.

Also, a few random folk have been asking about the whereabouts of the bloggers in "Deep Hibernation" (see sidebar); the recurring theme is that blogging is subordinate to the goings-on of their lives, which is both good and proper. We hate to see them go, but the truth is that they are never really gone, but with us in spirit when we post. (Much like Obi-Wan Kenobi's ghost, but with less cryptic advice.)

To conclude, I realize that someday, perhaps sooner rather than later (but not by choice), I will give this up; not today, not tomorrow, but inevitably, for whatever reason will serve, by my will or no. Regardless of how or when, I do hope that it was entertaining, instructional, or in some other way valuable to you all, and serving perhaps some greater purpose in the designs of the Almighty.

May you all be richly blessed in the days to come, shielded from machinations of the vain and the snares of the foolish; keep your heads down, and your powder dry!

Triton, here's the blog of the person that emailed me; he was curious to the content of your last post.

Caturday is always a classic!

Although you may not know it--since I hardly ever comment--I enjoy your blog. I guess I'm just lazy. Sometimes I start writing comments only to realize that I don't have the time to make the points that I want to make so I end up deleting them. Sometimes I don't comment because I simply can't add anything of value.

My last post? You mean prior to the "farewell" post?

*drawing a blank*

I have no idea.

Not the penultimate post, but the farewell post. I told him it was just that, a farewell, and that he didn't miss anything beyond reading the comments of those wishing you good tidings.

Kawaika, I tend to lurk at more places than I actively comment for the same reasons (my minimum threshold at Vox's is "obnoxious pun"), but I'm glad that you're enjoying your visits! (This reminds me of a post I want to do, actually, but I can't find the video clip.)

LAWNG LIV CATURDAY!

Sometimes I comment on a blog I infrequently read and then forget that I commented so that I never check to see if there were any followup comments or not. This is more true of moderated sites than the open commenting sites like this one

I seem to have a perpetual problem with Haloscan informing me about commentary; Blogger is the only half-way reliable system I've seen thus far, and let's not touch on Cocomment...

Yeah, it wasn't much. Just had enough of blogging, want to spend less time at the computer, that sort of thing.
