This is an odd time to celebrate the two-year anniversary of this blog. I haven’t been around much lately and I’ve more or less let my second blog languish.
These days, I am tired. My job search has continued for longer than you could imagine and I’ve recently encountered a few other circumstances that have contributed to my energy drain. I started this blog to vent frustrations and as a humorous diversion for myself but it’s harder to get into a humorous writing mood these days.
Everything will improve once we elect Rick Santorum as President. (Fortunately, the humor isn’t entirely gone…)
Despite everything, I still manage to submit job applications and fulfill the obligations for my volunteer commitments. Yes, that’s plural now. It only took a few years to make that happen. (See here for more details.) I am also still able to eat without vomiting.
I can’t remember the last time I had the flu…
And the volunteering keeps me sane.
However, I do remember starting this blog. I would look at bloggers who had posted their follower count and was astounded at the ones who had reached the 800-1000 range. And this week I surpassed the 3000 mark. WordPress doesn’t offer any nifty little digital trophies once you get that high… which would be okay if they offered a cash award instead.
And so, as I look ahead to year three, I see an eventual continuation to year four. Sometimes the best thing you can do is to keep going no matter what. That is the WordPress Way.
He who collapses is food for vultures.
