2013 went by so fast. Just in case you did not notice, no blog entries were posted here. Was it because I was lazy? Yes. But not just that, I thought it would nice to take a break. Why? I don’t know. Why do you think I have all the answers?
2013 was a good year for me both personally and professionally. I will not be going into details of those here. Why? Because I am lazy, I don’t want to type that all in. Then why bother mentioning it at all? I don’t know. It sounded like a good idea when I started typing.
I was expecting a big public outcry when I stopped blogging last year. I wanted it to be a big event, kind of like when Joel Spolsky stopped blogging. Maybe, I thought, some folks would show up at my door steps and beg me to come back. They would organize rallies, throw stones at government buildings, burn some buses (without any people in them, of course, I strongly oppose doing otherwise) and maybe occupy wall street. Just to be clear, the intention of these should be to force me to come back, not to celebrate the event. At the very least, I expected some encouraging comments from my readers saying that they miss me and that I should write something just to keep them going through this tough journey called life. Alas, nothing of the sort happened. Even I forgot about it most of the time.
Now I think I should resume blogging. What if my fans really missed me? What if they are just shy folks who are not the type who would show up at their hero’s door steps to beg for more? What if they are the silent types who don’t like to comment on blogs? The more I think about it, the more I am convinced this is exactly the case. Because if I look at all my previously written pieces, none of them have many comments, if any at all. What more proof do we need for the theory that my fans are the quiet types, the ones who likes to read my blog over and over again, but never courageous enough to venture a comment. I have to be understanding of them, don’t I?
I love you folks, my dearest fans. I don’t want to leave you in the dark to fight alone. Here goes.
