State of the Blog
First, the imminent birth of my daughter, JezLil, will almost certainly cut into my free time somewhat.* Needless to say, this bite from my schedule has to come from somewhere and it will almost certainly not come from my work time. I mean, let's face it- work pays me money, and I have it on good authority that babies can be costly. Likewise, the time I get to spend with JezLil is, itself, priceless and I'm not going to sacrifice it solely for your edification.
Second, my work needs to be stepped up in the near future because I need to finish my dissertation so that I can take that nice, shiny new job I was offered.** And somewhere amidst all the dissertation-finishing and job-taking there's going to have to be some moving, which will impose a further drain on my time.
So, in short, the blog will continue, but I'm changing the update schedule from the traditional Monday-Friday to "pretty much whenever the hell I feel like it/have time." I wish I could be more reliable but, hell, y'all are probably all using aggregators, and my family and job come first.
In consolation, however, I would also like to announce that my new series on The Overton Window will be starting soon- possibly this week- and I'll be doing my utmost to stick to a weekly update schedule for that. So, in short, there may be less Drek, but drek will still be here.
Aren't you lucky?
* I can actually hear the current parents in the audience laughing menacingly at that remark.
** Yes, as it turns out, someone really is crazy enough to hire me. Note, however, that I did not specify what kind of job I'm taking.
