I completely adore posting to this blog. As it's gone along, it has come to be such a wonderful, personally satisfying forum for me, allowing me to share/spout off about all sorts of things for which I would otherwise have little outlet; it makes me very happy and even proud to be able to do what I do here.
The only drawback is that I spend an unconscionable amount of time putting these posts together. With my pedantic, perfectionist soul, I often go to extreme measures, with hours of research on the texts, more hours searching out the best, largest images that I then spend more time sizing and perfecting in Photoshop. Also, a while back, I set the rather extreme goal of making this a daily endeavor. All of that would fine - indeed, glorious! - if I could make it my full-time job. But as I still have a part-time job in the real world and, more importantly, a very important, very ambitious exhibition of my work coming up in May, I really can't rationalize the level of absorption that I've indulged in of late with this blog.
So, for a while, at least, I'm going to attempt to limit my time spent preparing posts, limit the number of posts per week. For now, I'll be posting four times a week rather than seven: Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday.
Rather ridiculous how desperate, how tragic I sound about all this...! But, then, you all know what a very silly fellow I am. : )
