This Blog Is Still Alive!

I just realized how funny it was to have the latest post titled "The End" sitting at the top of the blog for over 2 weeks. Nope, sparxMind isn't ending – I'm sure that'll disappoint a few of you. 😛

Where are the posts? What happened to the daily thing?
Apparently Twenty-Ten is the year that I pull back a bit from the intarwebs. For now at least. I've been trying to focus on "decluttering" my life a bit. This involves cleaning, organizing, and reducing my "stuff" both online and off. I'm still in the process of eliminating as much stuff as possible from my closet (as a bonus, it'll make the next move easier, yay!), mostly trying to get rid of things I don't need. It's hard. I'm also working on revamping a few of my work processes and the programs I've written to help streamline things.

Also, I'm trimming my RSS subscriptions (a little) and did a massive cleanup of my email. A few weeks ago, my gmail inbox had 430 unread items, and 2200ish emails in total. At the moment there are now ZERO unread emails, and 428 total emails sitting in my inbox. The goal is to keep the "unreads" below 10, and get the total inbox count below 200 by the end of February.

Right now though, the blogging thing is hard for me to focus on, but eventually I'll get back on the horse. The blogging horse. I just did a google search – there are 43,700 results for the phrase "the blogging horse". Wow.

    I've been stopping by to check on new entries. Funny enough, I didn't think the "The End" entry meant you were ending the blog. I've been better at posting to my culinary blog, but I am being less strict on myself (where I used to post "every weekday", I've given myself some room) but at the same time, this is allowing me to take the time include pictures in my entries.

    Welcome back!

    sounds like you are a decluttering master. I've been the same (or at least trying) with my basement.

    A "decluttering master"? Hardly. I've still got a box from the last move that says "shred" on it. I finally found my paper shredder though, so I can start attacking that thing. I don't even want to imagine what this would be like if I had a basement! *shudder*

    Tom… now I just feel like a schmuck – after a month of no posts, this one should have had TONS of pictures! 😛

    Will the internet ever shrink? Or will it always continue to expand and grow?

    I'd like to take most of the credit for the almost tripling of the usage of the phrase "the blogging horse".

    I think the internet is a lot like the universe.
    It started with a big bang, and we're in a state of rapid expansion, but eventually will suffer either a spontaneous collapse or will continue expanding until it experiences it's equivalent of a heat death.
    Ultimate fate of the universe []

    "the blogging train" – 216,000
    "get back on the blogging train" – 40,300
    "the blogging horse" – 116,000
    "get back on the blogging horse" – 51,200

    There are almost double the results for "train" than "horse".. but add "get back on" and the horse takes a slight lead!
