I haven’t posted since March? That’s unreal.

Well, actually, I have been looking. At my blog, at it’s lack of posts … at my lack of inspiration for posts … my lack of time to write aforementioned posts … at the fact that I have two more kids for the summer …

Basically, to be honest, I just haven’t felt like it. To be brutally honest, I didn’t have anything worth posting about, apologetically. This is, after all, an apologetics blog. Well…

I don’t know if I’m going to keep it that way. I’m thinking, very hard, at making it a general blog. Just stuff I feel like posting. It may be of interest to some of you, it may not. Believe it or not, I have a great deal of interests which don’t involve apologetics. In fact, I’ve been indulging in those the better part of the spring and summer. Mostly spending time with my kids, playing video games (which, I’ll have you know, blogging severely curtailed), and hanging out with my wife – which blogging also curtailed. In the meantime, my wife has become quite the blogging maven.

She’s up for finalist in the Blogs of Beauty Awards, in the category of “Best Artistic Content”. As a photoblogger, primarily (at least, that was what I built her blog for, to begin with!), that’s the category she’s most excited about. Incidentally, she also was nominated for Best Contemporary Design… (To be honest, I don’t think it’s finalist material, so I’m not disappointed. Just as an aside.. I designed it, don’t think I’m dogging her out :D)

To get back to the original topic, though… I think I’m just going to start posting. Whether it’s about nothing in particular, or some things you may not be used to hearing about from me… I’ll be blogging again. I’m thinking – just thinking, mind you, about just using Vox for what it says – apologetics – and reclaiming my own blog for, well… myself.

We’ll see.

So, let’s catch up. Since I blogged last… I spent a bunch of time on IRC, meeting new people. Got bored of that, after a while. I’ve picked up my two year old from her mom’s, and her big brother, and we’ve had a great time! It’s also killed any inclination I had to ignore kids for online chatting. I only get to see them for two months. I have ten months to play on the computer. My hair is probably 3 inches longer, and now is starting to inch down my back, instead of just “respectably” hippie, at my neck. I’ve installed probably 150 more garage doors (including one for my mom and dad). I’ve turned a year older (June 30th) – I’m now 28. What else? Otherwise… I’ve read about 100 books since March – probably more. I’ve restarted – and dropped – two MMORPG’s. (Anarchy Online and Shattered Galaxy)

Oh, and the most important thing – found out whether the baby is a boy, or girl. Girl.

Things I haven’t done:

Checked the entire Vox Aggregator compulsively.
Read more than 5 blogs – in a week.
Shuffle my blog’s design – at all. Ok, well… until tonight.

It’s not that I don’t like blogging. I really do. I just had it in my head that I MUST, if I blog, write something ultimately compelling, astute, and… umm.. apologetical.

I’m sorry, but I guess I’m just not up to it anymore. Not since I’ve been married, at least. Single guys have nothing but time. I started this blog as a single guy, and I took that time. You wouldn’t BELIEVE the time I spent on some of the content in the archives. It’s insane. I’m just not going to do it anymore. I’ll post, but it’ll be about normal, everyday stuff.

I came to a realization. We are to be prepared to give an answer – that is correct. However. You answer someone who asked you.

I’ll answer, should someone ask. I have, several times, since March. I may even write about them. I have one in mind when I say this, that i might share with you, later. Theoretical knowledge just doesn’t compete with practical application, though. Especially when you’re sacrificing family time for blog time.

Well, my wife is talking to a high school friend who also blogs – and I’m running out of juice. I still have to work tomorrow!

So, glad to see you again, and my im’s are all the same. I may even log in to them tomorrow!

See you later.
