Hello folks. I've taken a break from blogging and writing for the past two months. As my regular readers know, since late summer 2012 I shifted my writing over to Saratoga Wire as a volunteer weekly columnist. I enjoyed that experience, and have respect for Jonathan Greene and Dale Willman and what they are trying to do with that online newspaper. The problem was that I have a full-time job that involves travel and long hours and even at just once-a-week, I struggled to keep up. I'm just not able to write on a deadline.
And that's what makes blogging so perfect for me. I write what I want, when I want. 10 times a week, or once every two weeks. I have always strived for some level of consistency on here, and for the most part have done a decent job not letting this blog go stale. But it's nice to be the boss and be able to take 8 days off if need be.
So I am hoping to write a little here and there, and continue sharing my thoughts as I have since 2006. Thanks for reading. Have a great Fourth of July.
