What Makes Me Tick

I was appreciative of fellow blogger Paul Ogden's comment to me on Facebook regarding the infrequency of my posts. He said that he misses my posting more regularly, and that I should get fired so that I can post more.

Funny enough, I've been under-employed for some long time now. In all actuality, my frequency of posting is inversely proportional to the amount of time spent working. I know it doesn't make sense on the first blush. Kole has more free time, so he posts less?

Yes, it's true. Somehow, I feel like I'm more in the game of life when I have a heavy workload. I feel like I'm out and about more and seeing more, and therefore have more to contribute. Sure, I could scan the news sites every morning for an article to react to, and could post aplenty, but it just doesn't appeal to me.

When you get right down to it, I'm a pretty lousy blogger. I break all the rules. I don't post regularly enough. I never comment on the big story Nancy Grace is getting all righteous about. I talk more about local or regional issues than national ones. I don't cross-post everything to Facebook. I don't really do anything to attract readers. And, I don't have many.

But that's ok with me. I really appreciate Paul's comment. I love that some people do read regularly. I like to think of it all as quality over quantity, and that's generally what I strive for in life, in general.
