What Happened?

I am in shock. I just realized I have not written a blog post since July! What happened? I used to have so many topics and ideas I was excited about.  It feels like it was just yesterday that I enjoyed regular blogging but I have been under such stress over the past year that I have become neglectful.

My creative juices have been dried up for some time now and I really struggle with coming up with fun topics since ideas don't flow like they used to. I used to make fun of people with blogs who did not post at least once a week but I have slowly turned into the person I used to mock.

If you take a peak to the right column you can see in the archive how much I blogged in the past. Last year really slowed down and 2013 has been nothing short of pathetic. I originally blamed the decreased activity and interest on competitive social media but I new deep down inside I was the reason....or was I. Who left who? Did I abandon my blog or did my blog forsake me?

I'm not saying my blog bears all of the responsibility, but if it didn't exist none of this would have happened in the first place. I've checked in on it regularly for years but it never reciprocates. I'm not even looking for a 50/50 commitment. I'd be happy if I could just get 10% back from Chaka's World, but some people and entities are just take, take, take. Maybe I should rename it "The Black Hole" since it just sucks the life and light out of me. Why did I ever start a blog? Did I really think it was possible for one man to stay on top of this? What started out as a cute peeping chick has since turned into a malignant monstrosity of pain and anguish.

Kids, just do yourselves a favor and stay in school and don't ever blog. Just say no when Blogger or WordPress makes that first offer. It may start out fun and exciting but over time it just doesn't satisfy you and then one day you wake up naked in a dumpster asking yourself "what happened?"

Damn You Chaka's World!  Damn You!
