I've had a few good folks reach out to check on me, make sure I had not been abducted by aliens and generally to see what's up with the blog. There's been not much noise out of me since January; I went AWOL without advanced notice, yet again. I apologize for that.
Over the past year, I've taken several long, unplanned breaks. Priorities in life moved T-Blog to the back of the line. I've tried many times to jumpstart with regular updates again, but end up staring at the blinking cursor for a while, perpetually re-writing a paragraph and then moving onto something else.
T-Blog has been rewarding and vastly educational for me, and I've been able to interact with a bunch of very cool, like-minded, good people. It's humbling to know that the blog has been viewed almost 10 million times, and that literally hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of people have been helped or educated by the blog in some small way. I had absolutely zero plan for any of that when I started writing way back in the day; T-Blog took a life of its own and I have been happy to be there for the ride.
At this point, though, it's a ride that I am going to get off.
Probably not a huge surprise, given no updates for 5 months, but I owe an announcement to the few of you out there checking T-Blog occasionally to see if there are any updates or wondering where I am.
At this point, there are no plans to re-start active updates to T-Blog. The site and its years of archives will continue as-is for the foreseeable future.
I am considering launching a new, quasi-related project that will require a more minimal time investment to keep updated, but no promises there.
Thanks to all for your readership, commentary and support over the years. Stay safe.
