Law of Diminishing Posts

The frequency of my blog posts has significantly diminished over the past several months.

I'm strangely okay with that in part because it means I have spent less time on the internet and also because I am fairly certain that not too many people have been reading this blog. That said, I am sure I have now discouraged any current readers from maintaining vigilance for future new posts.

There are a few contributing factors.

One. Journaling.
I have been journalling in a physical notebook with much greater frequency over the past six months, which translates into fewer online posts.

Two. Busyness.
My life hasn't been overly stressful, but it has been very full with travels, campus ministry and quality time with my wife. I am only able to sit down right now and write this post due to the fact that I am sitting in a quiet living room at Chuck's house, watching out for him as he recovers from a surgery that he had this morning.

Three. Less Internet time.
I'm just not surfing the web as much these days, not scouring the blogosphere like I used to. There is a lot of chatter - a lot of soundbytes - out there and I find myself just focusing more on a few blogs of close friends. I've also realized that I turn to the internet when I'm lonely and maybe I just haven't been as lonely lately (which begs the question, "Is internet community true community? At best is it a helpmate to true community or at worst a hindrance?")

We'll see what this summer brings. I may be posting more from Colorado, which will be an entirely different scene, entirely altogether. :-)
