Tap tap tap… Anyone out there?

I have had a blog since sometime in early 2000 and I think since about April of 2002 I have posted at least _something_ every month, until late last year where I stopped writing. No big dramatic reason either. I somehow just stopped. Kind of the way I am with shaving, and the reason I end up with a beard every so often.

I think I may have just implied that I grow a beard when I stop writing… Since I don’t have a beard, it must be time to start writing again.

Now, a benefit of not having written anything in a few months–I have gotten rid of everyone but the true believers! OK, now that everyone else is gone, get out your Amishrobot secret decoder rings out.

(Nerds might call this post “meta blogging” and they would say it is the worst thing ever. I think people that say things like “meta blogging” are the worst thing ever.)

(Yes, that is a real secret code.)

  1. What? No prize?

    Well I’ll forgive the metablogging, but for only one reason: you didn’t apologize nor “promise to do better.” I think approximately 43% of all blog posts out there contain something along those lines.

  2. not to imply that I’m not a true believer, but I thought I’d mention that you’re also left with those that added you to their feed reader before you stopped blogging.

  3. You call that a post?!!

    That was the Amishrobot equivalent of “Site under construction”–which is, by the way, the answer to the secret code.

    Must I do everything around here?!!

  4. Not to go post-modern,
    but you are meta-blogging about meta-blogging.

    Well I may not be a true believer, I would feel confidant describing myself as amish robotics agnostic.
