A few months ago, in my post “The Work of Publishing Periodicals” I explained why I hadn’t blogged for awhile — for 21 days to be exact. (Prior to that, the dubious record was 14 days — see “The AWOL Blogger is Back .”)
In my entry, I blamed my absence from the blogosphere on attending a convention. First I was busy trying to work ahead in anticipation of being gone, then I was gone, and then I was catching up from being gone.
So what’s my excuse this time for an embarrassingly long, record-setting, four week absence? Another convention! This time it was the ATA (American Teleservices Association) convention in Orlando. It was a great event and time well spent, but once again, the ramifications of attending precluded time to blog.
It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, I do. I just haven’t carved out the time to do so.
Perhaps this blog will jump start that process — and if not, expect another long delay between posts!
