I've been blogging a bit less, and this is partly because I have begun a new schedule that involves going to bed earlier and getting much more rest. Much of my blogging is/was done late at night and now there is less time for this.
It's not like I woke up one day and decided to start getting more sleep, it just evolved. Last fall I quit watching late night TV. That felt good. A few months later I quit watching all TV. Not that I watched a lot, but the late shows had become a regular thing for a while.
And then, when the kid's school started in August, I decided to start getting up earlier so that I could do breakfast and spend some time with my son before I left for work. I've found that my son is more of a morning person, and he likes an orderly, quiet morning. That's something I can provide. Taking over the responsibility of getting him ready in the morning has been a smart decision, and has maybe even helped him in school, because I make some big breakfasts and it starts him off calm and with a full belly.
The latest incursion into my blogging time began last month, when I downloaded the Kindle and Nook apps for the iPhone. I am thoroughly enjoying my first ebook, and definitely reading fewer blogs because now when I turn on my phone it is less to read my RSS feed, or Twitter follows, but rather to read a few pages of my book. I kinda miss the chatter, but also enjoy the mental quiet. Also, for the first time I can remember, I am reading a new-release novel. Usually I read non-fiction, and when I read fiction, it is usually some old classic in paperback. But this month I've been reading "Freedom" by Jonathan Franzen, which is a big bestseller. I think I'll read another of his soon.
Anyway, just letting you know that things may not be as regular as they once were... Hope you still find it worthwhile to visit.
