Great Scott, He's Gone!

I see Steve Scott has given up blogging, at least for now. When Scott first started his blog, I had high hopes. Unfortunately, despite his great credentials as a broadcast news reporter, his blog never did much for me. In fact, it took me a month to discover he had stopped blogging.

I do, however, like the explanation for his decision to quit:
I always wondered if my blog would eventually become the adult version of a kid's holiday gift: You're really excited about it when you first get it...but then, you start to play with it less and less as new stuff comes along...and, eventually, it ends up on a shelf in the closet, where you only see it while reaching for something else.

Well, that's kind of what happened.
I think anyone who does the blogging thing regularly- and without compensation- understand it can sometimes seem more like a chore. I feel that way sometimes but I know a day or two later I’ll be excited about it again so I hang in there. But burn out is easy and eventually we’ll all hang it up.

Speaking of absentee bloggers, I see Jim Leach is back at it after a nearly two week hiatus from the blogosphere.

Kia Ora (Hello) from a krazy blogger down under in New Zealand. Blogging - a chore ??? Get off the grass (what-ever grass you happen to be on). I tell people do what I do - blog to espress youself, not to impress others !!! It also helps to be just that little "tiny" bit krazy (hehe)
