It is no secret that, for most of us, it is the start of a new year.
And when a new year kicks off, we tend to make all sorts of crazy promises to ourselves.
For instance, I promised myself I was going to get up early this morning to start getting back into a rhythm for returning to work on Monday.
Yeah … we all had a pretty hearty laugh about that here in the offices of BSP Industries.
One of my other hare-brained promises to myself was that I would blog more this year.
Those of you who drop by my blog often … (and don’t worry, I won’t mention your names per the Promise of Anonymity Agreement you made me sign before you agreed to follow me) … you may have noticed that I have not blogged much over the past few months.
There were good reasons for this, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, and, most importantly, a complete lack of ideas.
But I can’t blame holidays forever for my inability to write even a simple blog post. Eventually, I’m going to have to take up some vice that I can blame it on.
I’m thinking: philately.
My mother once accused my father of being a philatelist, a charge he hotly denied. However, she found incriminating stamp hinges in his pockets and the smell of watermark fluid on his collar. He tried to explain it away by saying he had just been to the post office to mail a few letters, but the damage was done. He admitted he was licked, the accusations stuck, and their relationship eventually became unglued.
So anyway, you’ve been warned.
I intend to stamp out my writer’s block by posting things more often in the coming months.
