To Blog or Not To Blog?

To blog or not to blog, that is the question. It's been over a month since my last post here on Blog Time Passing. I guess it has something to do with fatigue, maybe health, maybe too many other things vying for my time and attention, maybe my interest or desire to blog has dissipated, or my inspiration's gone. No doubt, it's a combination of these and other factors.

The question before me now is, do I take this as a hiatus, not all that long in real time but seemingly so in blog years (which are akin to dog years), and pick up again? Or should I call the whole thing off? When you write a book, it has a beginning, middle, and end, the book itself, and also the process which comes to an end when the book is finally in print.

Blogs, on the other hand, are potentially a neverending story. But not necessarily so. Could you start a blog that consists of only one page, just one post? Sure! Why not? Of course, that would not be using the medium to its fullest capacity.

But that's besides the point.

Just, now, do I pick up where I left off, more or less? Do I blog on, dudes and dudettes?

To blog or not to blog, that
is the question.

Various friends and colleagues ask this question from time to time and my response has always been the same. A blog's not dead until it's deleted. It's very much like a journal in the sense that you can stop and start as you like.

Just FYI in reference to the single-post blog idea, One Post Wonder chronicles blogs comprised of just one post before they were abandoned.
