Another year is upon us.
Meanwhile, 2012 was my most productive blogging year since 2009, when I had 79 posts. In both years before that, I had over 200 posts each year. 2009 saw a steep drop, but 2010 was even worse, when I managed only 33 posts. Last year saw an increase to 59, while this past year I was able to achieve a little more than that. Still, it's a far cry from my golden age, which I don't expect to ever achieve again.
Like a lot of bloggers, a number of factors conspired to hamper my productivity. For starters, I just don't seem to have the time that I used to have. I also find myself sometimes falling short in the inspiration department. There are moments during the day where I think of topics to write about, but then when I'm home later on, I forget what it was that had interested me earlier and I just spend my time surfing the Internet.
I can't promise that 2013 will see a concerted effort to revive this blog to a semblance of what it once was. At times I veer from wanting to throw myself into making this a venue for impassioned and informed commentary to the other extreme of just throwing in the towel and shutting the whole thing down. By the end of 2013, I like to think that I will have definitely chosen one or the other.
Anyway, I wish any and all reading this a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
