Reality Has Bitten

I created this blog on October 17th, 2006. I had often wanted to start blogging but never really quite got around to it. Despite not knowing what I was going to talk about, my goal was to post something every day so that by this October, I would have 365 posts to my name. Well, we all know about good intentions but we are also aware that reality bites from time to time. All told, I racked up a grand total of 144 posts which runs me about at 39.5% success rating… or is that actually a 60.5% failure? If this was a test of one of my students, they would be taking this course all over again!

So… How did my year go? I started out with a one-a-day post but by the time the spring arrived I was down to one-a-week. This past fall, I again started up with good intentions but reality got in the way and, as you can see, I have been absent since October 2nd. I have actually considered quitting but I just can’t seem to pull this blog off the Net!

… and so I shall continue… Not because I have to but because something inside me compels me to. Also, when I don’t write, I don’t visit and I must admit that, after a year of bloggers such as LGS, Abbagirl, Becky and Cheryl just to name a few, I start to miss their daily posts. By the way, I just noticed that Time After Time is gone … Anyone know why?

Anyways, A lot has happened to me these past couple of months and, as the summer days quickly become fall days, I will fill you all in on what has been happening.

hi dave, it gets hard sometimes trying to juggle and balance things in our everyday life. i'm a blogoholic, and even i don't blog like i used to. there are times when that's all i seem to do; then there are times when things in my life don't allow for me being online as much as i'd like. but regular bloggers stop in from time-to-time, so it's easy to get back in the flow.

being a teacher i know can take a lot of your time, so i think your regular bloggers understand. anyway, glad to see you here today. have a great week.

i'm not positive Dave, but for some reason i think "time after time" was josie's blog at one point. she's deleted several blogs and she has a new one:

Glad to see you back, and looking forward to hearing what you've been up to!

Funny, when I started I was sure it wouldn't last long, and I'm still posting at least a couple of times a week. Go figure.

It was good to hear from you Dave, and to see my name on your blog. Thanks! I can't believe how much I write. I didn't have a goal, it just happened. I'll look forward to seeing more of you.

dave, your blog is one of my favorites. I hope you will start writing and posting more regularly again but you know, it has to be something you enjoy doing. But this fan will be hoping.

We appreciate whatever time you have to spare on your blog Dave - life has its demands that need to be taken care of. Look forward to hearing how your summer went. Your blog is one of my favorites too.

Hello Dave,
How are you dear?
Just dropped by to say hello.

At times we do need a break from blogging but one should never quit the thing one loves.So it's good to know that you'll continue it.

Congratulations for one year of blogging.

Hope everything is fine at your end. :)
Take Care!!!

Well, you could say I am a fan of your blog. I check in almost every day to see what wonderful things you have written. I take what I can get. If that means once a week, I am okay with that. Just don't go leaving us permanently. You would be greatly missed.

Dave, Time After Time is now C'est La Vie.

C'est la vie *sigh*

I lost a lot of good stuff when I deleted that blog. I will never do that again.

Congratulations on your one year anniversary. I remember when you first started blogging. You're definitely part of the blogging community, and we all hope you plan to stick around :-)
