Unless it’s Christmas or Easter or a family birthday, I tend to forget about holidays until I’m blog-surfing and discover others are celebrating. (I gotta get out of my office more!)
And…well…that’s what I’m going to do. Not totally voluntarily, though. In this case, I don’t have a choice. For the next two months, I’ll be on federal jury duty.
I won’t know from week to week what my schedule will be. It could be one day, could be all five days. On days I’m in court, I won’t be able to visit other blogs or even comment back to those of you visiting mine. (I have a feeling my iPhone will be confiscated.)
I could, of course, pre-schedule a week of posts on weekends, but that doesn’t seem fair when I won’t be here to participate. So, I’ve been in a quandary as to what to do.
I’ve been pondering this for over a month and have decided to cut back on my posts. I’ve been blogging since 2006 and posting every day for, I believe, over two years now. But now I’m going to post on Saturdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. (I’ve even gone ‘round and ‘round in my mind over which days, trying to guess what days I might be free!)
This is going to be weird and I’m wondering if I’ll go into blog withdrawal. On the other hand, I’m not stopping blogging altogether. I’ll see you here, I hope, same place, same time, this coming Wednesday. (Wonder if I’ll be able to talk about jury duty or if there will be a gag order?)
