Starting up again

Trying to get it started again
It's been too long, of course, since my last post on May 21, 2013. There were reasons for the slowing down of my posts on this blog but as I gradually decreased the frequency I was writing, it fed on itself. Drafts of posts backed up and I found it harder and harder to finish them. As it stands now, I have over 20 posts I started recently but didn't finish. There are those that would say, "None of your posts look like you put much time into them." While they may look like that, I do try to put enough time and effort into writing these blog posts to at least satisfy my own standards.

As I've said before, this blog is not really about writing for others to read. It's about getting things down before I forget them. I want to be able to look back on thee short articles to remind myself of what my family and I were doing and various times in our lives and what we were thinking about. There are also the rare occasions when I comment on current events in our country and the world. Not that I have such great insight into those event but I just want to remind myself about what I was thinking about those events.

So, here I go. I've done the hardest part - I've started again. Let's see how this goes. I hope that now that I've started again, it will be easier to keep it going. At least I haven't gone the whole summer with posting. I got this one in between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
