Nearly a milestone

Boat of Boredom

There’s not much going on lately on the home front. I have been kept busy at work and have even had to turn down work because of the amount I have been getting. Many would say that is a good thing and it is if indeed much work was necessary. In my case I work more out of enjoyment than necessity. Work gives me something to occupy myself and to relieve the boredom of an otherwise dull existence. Life for me isn’t all dull though but unless I am occupied it can be very dull indeed. I did no work on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and at the time of writing this nothing planned for the week ahead. Well that’s fine as it gives me the opportunity to do anything I like instead. Problem is there is little else I have an interest in these days, things to keep me active that is. I want to be active all the time and I suppose that is my problem. I do little reading, watch little television, almost never go to the cinema, in fact if I am sitting down for too long I simply have to get up and walk about.

Yes, I am sitting down writing this but my mind is on other things, what to do next? I have been glancing at my blog’s statistics, specifically how many posts I have written and I discovered that as of today (Saturday) I have written and posted 2489. That’s a lot of posts since my first in January 2009. When I look back I am amazed at the way the blog has developed and the diversity of the posts themselves. If each of those posts were about a different subject that would mean nearly two and a half thousand subjects! Alas, I doubt I could write about so many different things so you will find much of my posts centre around a single subject but even so there are still many. I don’t boast that I am that knowledgeable on all the subject material except perhaps those in which I am well versed and experienced. Surprisingly though I don’t spend a lot of time at my computer and most of my posts, probably all of them, are written straight from the heart without much thought. The words just flow out. I have an active mind and find writing quite easy. One thing I have to say though is that I get bored easily and perhaps that is a good thing when writing blog posts for there is a fine balance between keeping my readers interested and boring them to death with posts that go on and on. If I write 400 words I am happy enough but once I pass 600 I am beginning to get bored myself. All in all I think I have done well in achieving this minor milestone of almost two and a half thousand posts. A few weeks ago when I was at a low ebb I seriously thought of closing the blog altogether but I am still here, for how long I cannot say. Maybe I’ll wait until I reach the five thousand post milestone before making that decision.
