Scalpel or Sword?: Starting the Hypothermia Protocol
I’m not calling the code…
Scalpel’s decided to take a break from blogging, and I hope he comes back.
I would like to say that, just because any blogger hits a ‘dry spell’ for new, original things to say, it’s not necessary to close up shop and decide to quit blogging. Heck, my dry spell is going on 4 years now.
There’s a weird pressure bloggers put on themselves to keep writing, keep producing, etc. Maybe it’s narcissism (a little), maybe it’s a desire to please, but for your readers it’s still all free ice cream*. Unless you’re being paid to write there’s no shame in pushing away from the keyboard and having an analog life, coming back to blog when the mood strikes.
