I have decided to pull the plug on my blog. The last posting that I made was nothing more than a bitchfest about poor customer service. The fact is, it has little to do with ham radio and when I started this blog, one of my goals was to stay on track and not let it turn into a diary of sorts or stray too far from important topics. Not become too personal, in other words. I think I was mostly failing.
I've not updated much this summer, I have always subscribed to the notion that it's better to say nothing than to write about something where it really shows that you're straining to come up with something. The weather and how hot or rainy it is, how many DX stations you've worked, your latest contest efforts, all of that is nice for a while, but it grows old. And that's the road I was headed down.
Plus, I've seen my blog disappearing from some of the blogrolls of people that I really respected and enjoyed reading. I figure if they don't enjoy reading my blog anymore to the point that they're going to remove it from their recommended list, then it's probably time to toss the towel in. I'm obviously not cutting it anymore.
Whether I leave it up or not, I've not decided. Probably not, not much point in it. I don't think there's much that would qualify as being important from a technical standpoint, it's mostly just my ramblings.
And that's where I hoped that I would be able to have enough to keep some interest, in my ramblings. But I just don't have that kind of gift, I'm not a good enough writer.
Thanks to everyone who made a comment. I can shut 'er down knowing that no one ever sent me an ugly comment and many of you that I've corresponded with I consider to be my friends. My "email friends" at least. Hopefully one day we can have an eyeball QSO too.
