In 2009, I wrote a mere eight blog entries. It was the year after the Phillies won the World Series, so it's possible I spent much of the year in drunken celebration.
In 2010 I had 30 entries. Double digits! Most of these were posts around Christmas. Clearly, I didn't feel like working.
In 2011, 43 entries. If my blog was a publicly traded company, these "upticks" would be a very good sign of potential growth. There was an entry titled, "Rashes, Ticks & Chicks Who Perform Surgery." I don't remember what it was about, but I'm sure it's sexy and barely safe for work.
2012 would see 51 entries! WOW! Even I am impressed. Almost 1 a week. I must have taken off while I was on vacation.
So I assume 2013 was quite the boondoggle, right? Nope. Seven. Seven fucking blog entries! Well, eight including this one. I have reverted back to my 2009 numbers, and the Phillies haven't done a goddamn thing.
I keep telling myself, it's because I'm busy. I wrote and produced a musical this year...and other stuff too.
There actually has been a lot of "other stuff," but I am finding that "Facebooking" takes up WAY more time than it should. Clearly it's cutting into my blogging. This can't happen! I need to keep up the blog entries, as my laziness will eventually see me turn a bunch of old blog posts into a book, who would buy a book of a bunch of stupid Facebook posts?
"Chapter one, What The Fuck Is With All Of This Traffic?"
"Chapter nineteen, Look At What I Had For Fucking Dinner."
Finally, "Chapter Twenty Six, FUCK (fill in political figure, party and/or agenda)!"
Apparently, I say "Fuck" a lot on Facebook.
So I admit, 2013 is a wash. Like the current Phillies season, there's no coming back from this mess. Instead I'll just attempt to keep sharp for my comeback in 2014.
