Yikes - how did I ever get soooo far behind on blogging?! Well, no excuses, but I do have some good reasons:
- Facebook: I started using Facebook several months ago, in anticipation of launching an official business Facebook Page for work. In order to create a business Page, one must first become a personal user. I did that, and WHOA! Turns out, it's pretty addictive. Part of its attraction is that it's just so quick and easy. And, it's really fun to connect with others. So, I think my attention and time quickly moved from Blogging to Facebook.
- Social Media for Work: My time has also been much taken up with managing Facebook, Twitter and a blog for work, in addition to managing 5 websites, which leaves little time for my personal applications. It's a lot to give adequate attention to all at once. There are some cool tools out there that help people manage multiple profiles, and these come in handy. But still, spending so much time on these for work means less time spent for pleasure.
- Refining Blog Focus: I've also been toying with refining the focus of my blog. "New Ideas Welcome" was my first foray into blogging, and is primarily a tool for me to learn to use the blogging platform as well as the many convenience and tracking gadgets out there. I'm thinking of keeping this blog but also creating another one, on a more focused theme. We'll see.

So, I was away from my blog for a few YEARS! But, I'm discovering I'm not the only one in this boat. Once in awhile, when I just want to see what's out in the blogosphere, I just keep clicking the "Next Blog" button to see what I find. Doing this today showed me many, many blogs with no recent posts. Looks like we're all slackers once in awhile!
