An Open Letter to the Company,

Dear Company,

     I don't know if you have noticed there Company (I think you do because I have had multiple people mention it), but some time ago I ceased to be a daily blogger.  I know, it is a great failing on my part, but I am not too concerned.   I would like to think that I put up the good fight for and awfully long time, and for over 1000 days I managed to write something just about every day.  But things have changed in some ways.  First of all, I have actally managed to get a little bit of a life, which is good for me, even if it isn't great for the people who have to be involved in that life.  Second, I got a girl, and I know it sounds terrible but now I have stuff to do.  Third, I sort of came to the realization that nobody wanted to hear some of the crap that I was churning out.  I was writing things a lot of days when I didn't really have anything to say.  I don't know if I am feeling a little burned out or what, but sometimes I just don't have anything worth putting the effort into, and both you and I, Company, deserve better than that.  If I were to be frankly honest with you - and I am going to be - the biggest change has been a change in opportunity.  My Internet availability can be limited at home - especially at the end of the month - and my work duties have changes such to take up much more of my day.  And truthfully that was when I wrote a lot of my stuff.  So it just doesn't happen as often anymore.  Now don't be heartbroken, I am not here to announce that we are shutting down the blog, or that Officer Butt Hansen is suddenly unemployed, or anything like that.  I am just here writing you this open letter so you know that things probably aren't going to be like they were before.  I am going to aim more for posting every day or three, so you get two or three posts a week, which I believe is still pretty prolific.  And there are going to be times when I have a lot to say and you get several.  And there are going to be times when I don't have much to say and it is a little quiet around here.  But we will manage and we will survive.  That is what it is all about.  You have to roll with the changes, as REO Speedwagon once sang, and that is what we are doing.  Besides, it can always roll back, you know?

Sincerely,

Big Dave
