I've been wondering whether or not to ask this of the readership, but the lack of content has gotten to the point where I can't avoid it...is it time to drink up and close the bar?
For one thing, I seem to be generating most of the recent posts; 20 out of the last 25. I neither want nor intended this to be "my" blog" but that seems to be happening, and I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that.
A lot of the original staff have finished their drinks and left, and many of the rest of us seems to be circling around the same old topics like late-night drinkers often do. Not sure if it's just being too familiar with each other, or the end of the conventional wars overseas the U.S. was fighting through the Oughts, or just having thrashed out all we want to argue about but the place seems to be getting a sort of deserted feel. Pageviews are dropping steadily. Fewer of us seem to be interested in stopping by.
My first thought is that I could step away from the bar; let the other folks here take over. Maybe the problem isn't "us" but too much of me.
But I guess my other thought is that if this is an "us" thing I'd rather we make it official and final, close up shop and take down the "Open for Business" sign than just sort of drift away into one of those ghost blogs, untenanted and forgotten.
