Deciding what not to post

Blogging every day is tough. I’ve mentioned this a few times over the seven years I’ve been at this. Coming up with something every day is really tough. Coming up with something interesting every day is impossible. Which is why you sometimes get posts like this. It’s came to my attention, while wracking my brain for… Read more »
