The usual excuse I give whenever I have not posted anything new on The DIGITAL Archive is the old reliable: I was/am very busy.
In many ways, I suppose, that excuse is still applicable. But that is not the entire story, I admit.
While I am busy (beyond belief in some cases), wrapping up work and tying up loose ends before the end of my contract, I have been having many mixed feelings about the future of this blog.
I send out plenty of tweets using Twitter (come follow me, if you like), but this blog remains both a powerful platform and a burden.
What to say? What to write about? Not so sure anymore.
Many of my favorite bloggers seem to have no shortage of ideas (or time) to blog daily.
To tell you the truth, I am even having a hard time right this minute to compose a few short sentences about what has been stirring in my mind.
So, the big decision: The DIGITAL Archive will go on a sabbatical, much like its primary author. It is the right time for it to find its way, its voice, and return once again. When? Dunno.
I realize in making this decision I might lose a whole bunch of constant readers (yes, all two of them), but that is a risk I am willing to take. Blogs, blogging, media, new media, social networking, etc have evolved so rapidly even during the short time that I have been blogging. For my blog not to change in some shape or form, or at least consider change, would be unrealistic.
Hard to believe, but on March 4, 2005, I started blogging! An eternity in blog years. 3 years!
Hey, folks, stay tuned.
