No, not really…

I have not abandoned the blogging, but have been very busy with the volunteering and work. What a change from the bad old times at the previous agencia. This one is enjoyable and entertaining (often) and ultimately useful to me because I can be useful to it in its purpose.

I do have ideas and pictures and things, I just need the time and memory to put them here.


What to tag, how to categorize?

My previous two posts got a good response (thank you!) which I think might have to do with the way I tagged them and the categories I used. Unfortunately I’m somewhat at a loss about how to tag frequently (this post is no exception). My posts ramble all over the place, which makes a simple schema hard to go by. Blogs like Awfullibrarybooks have it so easy since they can just use a modified Dewey scheme (or LC if they really felt like it).

Any readers have any advices on this?

I get my best ideas when they are least useful

I am sure this is not just me. There HAVE to be other people out there with the same issue as I am going to disclose I have. Specifically, I get really rockin’ ideas… when I’m about to fall asleep. You know, that liminal state where you are aware you’re close to sleep when you remember it later on, but are still able to think awake. Fun stuff happens then… and you’re usually too tired to care to write it down, or even speak it out loud, since you’re just about to go to sleep and only want to sleep.

The upshot of this is when I could be putting out highly well thought out (I feel) blog posts, I’m not. I also rarely remember what I was going to blog about, so I can’t just do it in the morning. Additionally, when I wake up I usually have future work to do, which I attack first.

I will see what I can do in the future, but I’m sure I’ll lose some of my best ideas to tiredness and sleep.
