Blog stuff: January 2005 Archives
Eutychus Fell has several wonderfully insightful posts up the last few days. He still doesn't have comments up on his site but he does respons to emails. GO over and check out his comments about the Phoenix situation and his review of a movie he caught more or less by accident.
La Shawn asks
1) How long have you been blogging?
2 years and a few days (my first entry is dated 1/9/03)
2) Do you believe you’re addicted to blogging? Please explain, and be honest. It is habit-forming, I must confess. (If I decide to use your response, I may have follow-up questions.)
I can go a few days without blogging, and sometimes I get sick of it. But I don't see it is an addiciton, it is more that I have made a committment to my (few thought they may be) readers. As far as I know, I am the only midwife blogging (if there any others, please let me know!) and definitely the only Catholic midwife blogging in the USA. If I am addicted to anything, it is probably my community - but I don't honestly see that as an unhealthy addiction. My family and my local community take priority.
3) Have you ever taken a hiatus? If so, for what reason and how long?
I take time off whenever I feel like it, or if I am busy or just not in the mood. My hiatus may not involve doing no posting, it is more likely that I will take a hiatus from thoughtful and well-written content, and just post links, short comments, or quiz results. In a sense, I have been on hiatus for a few weeks now - I have some real content percolating in my brain but it isn't fully brewed yet.
4) Have you ever thought of giving up your blog? Why or why not?
Nope. I sometimes get frustrated with the technical stuff or disheartened by some reader/commentors, but I figure that this is worthwhile even if only 1 or 2 people find my writings of value.
he blogs on here for now.
I suggest you go over and read the last few days for a not so brief description of what it is like to try to live without plastic money in our culture.
is up over at the blog with the really long latin name
I don't know how TSO manages to find and post all his tidbits. Delicious, as always.
Besides godblogs and momblogs, I also like to read medblogs. For an assortment of these, try Grand Rounds.
