Lacking the blogging kool-aid

This has been one of those weeks where it’s been hard to pay attention to much other than some pretty focused work.

We talk about the ‘attention economy‘ and giving partial attention to many different things. Well, I’ve not had much success at attention-splitting so far this week.

No time for blogging, not even much twittering. I’ve not joined in some of the conversations to posts on this blog. And don’t even mention email.

I don’t know about you but it’s also been a mood thing. I’ve not actually had much desire to write anything. I have about a dozen topics highlighted in a FeedDemon news bin that I’ve been wanting to post some commentary about, yet I’ve not.

Some of these topics are great for commentary and opinion. Jeff Jarvis’ account of his meeting with Dell bloggers, for instance. Dave Sifry’s latest state of the blogosphere (or Live Web, as it’s now being called), published today. A map of brands in Second Life. Plenty more, too.

Perhaps a mood swing might occur by the weekend. Oh, wait, I’m planning Windows Vista upgrades. Plus mow the lawn :)

Anyone care to share some of that blogging kool-aid? I think I need a refresh.

    Stop whingeing, just get on with it ;-)

    Oh, and don’t let the lack of postings on my ex-main-blog deceive you. I’ve been quite busy on my other blog.

    Thanks for that advice, Armin :)

    I’m not usually this moody, Bryan. Must be phases of the moon or something. I’m blaming Twitter, actually.

    It happens to all of us, Neville. Sometimes I’ll post every day for a few weeks, then stay silent for a week or more. Having a job kinda gets in the way of this whole blogging thing ;)

    Hey, I’m even blogging from my holiday. But then it would be stupid not to blog right at the source…

    The nearest distillery is about 2-3 miles from where I’m typing this. Unfortunately it’s a 2-3 mile swim, walking is a bit more, probably about twice that.

    And those pesky clients, Nick :) At least RSS lets me still keep in touch with things even in the absence of my own contributions to the greater conversation.

    Btw, looking forward to the next FeedDemon. Soon, I hope.

    So swim, Armin!
