thanksgiving eve reflections

November 22, 2006 | 5 Comments

meI’m a bit annoyed with myself for how little I’ve been posting of late. I thought I’d write a post about that, if nothing else just to give myself some satisfaction that I actually posted something besides a brief book review. Truthfully, I think I just wanted an excuse to post my South Park likeness. –>

  • One of the reasons I’ve not posted as much has just been pure busyness. Life has kept us going. I’ve still been able to make sure I’ve had some downtime, but it just doesn’t always end up being devoted to the blog. Seems like most of my downtime has been devoted to watching Heroes, Lost, and the Broncos.
  • It’s not as if I haven’t been writing. I’ve written over 40 pages in the last two months for school alone. Still, writing is something I truly enjoy, and this is a good outlet for it.
  • It’s not just my blog posting that has slowed down. Posting links on Inbreaking and my commenting on other blogs have suffered too.
  • This has been a season of a lot of personal reflection. This blog hasn’t typically been the outlet for my most intimate of thoughts, and that’s what has been on my mind the most. Thus, those thoughts don’t find their way here. I haven’t been sure that’s the direction I wanted to take the blog, and that alone is probably worth self-analysis and personal reflection!

I know that there are a number of people who read just because you know me and want to keep up, and still others who have never met me but somehow have found something worth reading here. Thanks for all the comments you’ve shared.

{sigh} That was a lot of work just to post a silly cartoon picture.

    John, I don’t know you, but i am an avid reader of this blog. you provide great links, insight, and wit. I got turned onto your blog through the theohacks podcast that my good friend Adam ( told me about. I know how hard it is to post on a regular basis. My blog has suffered much since i started back at school. Keep trying. I for one, benefit from you. Thanks for a great blog.

  • Hey John,

    I’m in the same boat as you – busyness and a season of reflection has kept me from blogging over the last couple of weeks.

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! You may receive an e-mail from me in a couple of days about a couple of things happening in my life. Take care!

    Yes, I miss hearing from you, but you do need to find the appropriate places for your thoughts.

  • ha! the cartoon really does kinda look like you.:)

    Hey John, any chance you are going to the “Isn’t She Beautiful” conference at Mars Hill in Grand Rapids? I was just curious. having surfed your blog and podcast for the last couple of years, I would love to actually meet you. Just a thought.
