I Was Sitting Down to Write a Big Post When…

I’ve been slacking off on the blogging thing for the last week or two, because I’ve discovered a¬†great irony about blogging: if you have stuff to write about then you’re busy so you don’t have tons of time to write. If you’re not busy so you have time to write then you don’t have anything to write about.

I’ve had several¬†ideas for posts kicking around in my head for a while. I had some free time this afternoon, so I decided to sit down and knock it out. However, when I opened up wordpress I had over 300 comments sitting there. Apparently the spam bots found me.*

It bothers me when I see that there are new comments languishing as they wait for my approval, so my posting time was eaten up with sorting the wheat from the chaff in the comments.

I’m figuring out a spam filter (maybe captcha) for the comments. Tomorrow (or the next day) I’ll get the post I wanted to write finished up, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m not dead, and that I haven’t yet abandoned the blog.

*If the real Louis Vuitton ever comments on this blog, it’s going straight to the spam folder.
