This has been a long break in posting. There have simply been too many pressures to allow me to post regularly.
In all this, I have missed the discipline of posting. Even when posts are short, they provide an opportunity to consolidate my thoughts.
There is an irony in my failure to post because I am such a strong supporter of the use of blogs as a professional device. I am failing to deliver on my own advice!
Despite my failure to post on a regular basis over the last six months, the blog has continued to attract search engine traffic. In December 2007 it passed 11,000 visitors. The number today is 16,477. So my previous work is still attracting readers.
So I am going to try to resume posting as from 1 July, simply catching up on the July back log and thus getting back into a pattern of regular posting.
