Cobwebs & Tumbleweeds: Clean Them or Leave Them?

Sure has been quiet around this page recently. I hate to see it so dead, makes me sad. I was so excited about blogging when I first started. I'm not sure what happened. I think the biggest contributing factor is that I started blogging while I was working 3rd shift and spent 10 hours at night alone, answering 2 or 3 phone calls an hour. Blogging was a way of killing time. It kept me occupied and helped to stave off boredom. Then, as I transitioned to second shift the phone calls increased and I actually had living people working with me that I could talk to. So, the posting decreased slightly. But now....?

Now that I'm on day shift, the phone calls are crazy. I don't have much free time at all. And I went through several weeks of all blogging sites being blocked by the new internet security they put in place on our work computers. So I eventually got used to not reading my list of daily blogs and not posting one of my own. With the arrival of my laptop I am able to visit those sites once again - if I bring my laptop to work, that is. Since my desktop crapped out on me at home, I use my laptop at home every night. And I don't always feel like packing it up and carting it with me to work every day. Yet another reason I can use to justify the cobwebs and tumbleweeds accumulating on this site.

Excuses aside, I now have to decide whether or not I'm going to try and revive the blog. I have the desire to keep it going. I'm just not sure if I will make the time and put forth the effort. Another worry I have is that I'm getting ready to start a weight loss challenge at work and I may inadvertently turn this into a personal diet blog. That's not the way I envisioned my blog when I first started it in 2006. In fact, when I first began posting I was hoping it would one day be a blog that hundreds of people from all over the world wanted to read. Obviously that hasn't happened. But I do know there are a few of you out there who do check in on Rosey's Ramblings on occasion. What do you guys think? Did I ever at some point write anything of interest? Would you like to see me give it another go? Does the (hopefully) occasional diet entry bother you?

I think you put too much pressure on yourself. Blogging is for you; not everyone else. When you have something to say, say it. A blog is like a painting, a song or any other piece of art, it will only be good if it's inspired. Don't force it. :)
