It’s been pretty quiet around here lately, due to the fact that I changed jobs last month and am incredibly busy as a result. Right now, I’m not sure I’ll be able to continue to update this blog with regularity. I’ve enjoyed writing Hold Fast off and on for the last four years. I’m sure that even if I enter a state of blogging hibernation, I’ll end up turning the lights back on in the future. Stay tuned and thanks, as always, for reading.
I’ll be posting at a very low rate over the next couple of weeks as I travel for work (and pleasure too!). If you want to read some other smart people, check out the blog roll..
I’ll be back soon
I’m coming off a two-week period where I was offline. I’m catching up on work and emails, but this blog should be back up and kicking later this week.
Obviously it’s been light posting of late. If you’re wondering what I’m up to, check out OccupyOurHomes.org.
I’m going on vacation and will have light posting (or, ideally, no posting) while I’m away. If you’re looking for other plays for insightful commentary, check out the blog roll.
It feels like this has been a slow week at Hold Fast. While there’s a lot in the news – the BP oil spill, the financial reform bill in the Senate, upcoming primaries in Pennsylvania and Arkansas – there isn’t a whole lot that grabbed me this week to write on. Not sure why that is, but hopefully I’ll be writing more soon…
I’m on vacation this week and will probably not be posting at all. In the mean time, check out sites on my blog roll for more reading material.
So no posting…other than to concede the obvious, that Bill O’Reilly is a psychic and we on the Left really do see white men like me as a problem. I can’t wait to see what Olbermann has to say about this one…
This blog post doesn’t exist.
I can sympathize with Josh – taking time off from full-time blogging is hard. Doing work as an online political operative means being connected all the time. There are multiple email accounts I read religiously (I read all my emails, including from list serves, to the best of my ability. It’s something of a neurosis.). I maintain multiple blogs. This past week when I was in Puerto Rico, I was able to really unplug for the first time in about four years. I shut off my email list traffic, I didn’t blog, I didn’t obsess over work emails. And it felt great.
I’m getting back up to speed today, but it’s good to know that I can unplug when I really, really try.
