The joys of blogging
It's time for me to decide whether or not to continue this blog.
Apologies to all my regular readers for not posting since August.
My break from blogging has been the longest since I began in March 2004.
So much has happened that I would previously have rushed to blog about - the passage of Australia's first marriage equality motion through the Tasmanian Parliament, the first ever official meeting between a Prime Minister and LGBT community reps, the release of the world's best ever marriage equality advertisement here in Australia, the Labor Party's adoption of a pro-marriage equality policy, and, of course, my first performance with the City of Hobart Highland Pipe Band!
Sadly, what would normally inspire me to blog is what has kept me from it.
Since mid year the marriage equality campaign has been so busy I haven't had any time to blog.
Read this list of significant marriage equality moments from 2011 will you'll see what I mean.
Now, it's the end of the year and time for me to assess whether I want to resume blogging.
The motivation that saw me blog almost daily for seven years is still strong. But, if anything, 2012 will be busier on the campaign front than 2011.
One option is to change my format to make posts shorter, sharper and less time consuming to write. But, for me, one of the joys of blogging is reflecting on events rather than just noting them or offering glib, obvious comment.
Whatever I decide to do I'll do it soon. I don't want the strands of this site left untied.
Till then have a wonderful New Year.
