Scooter Blue, Where Are You?

Well well well, it's been a while. I bet my three (Okay, two) loyal readers are wondering what the hell I've been up to.

Here goes:

I've been dealing with some heavy personal stuff lately, for one. I don't like to discuss personal matters on my blog; I'd rather stay anonymous. Let's just say I've had neither the time nor the desire to do regular blogging lately. I hope that changes in the near future.

Also, I've had a crisis of confidence in my blogging. I noticed that I started to lose the "edge" I had been developing earlier - around the time of Bush's Inaugural, I felt like I was on fire! (Or was it just the Mexican food?) But soon after, I began to run out of inspiration. It's not that I wasn't outraged at what I saw in the news every single fucking day, it's just that I couldn't come up with much of any original commentary. I was merely posting links, and I don't want to become a liberal version of Instawanker.

Really, there is a plethora of excellent blogs that provides the kind of insight I wish I had - check out my blogroll, for starters. I really don't feel like I'm adding anything to the discourse, and I don't want to only be part of the liberal "echo machine." I respect too many bloggers to do that.

So I took a voluntary hiatus. And I'm still not really ready to come back just yet. And if and when I do, I've decided I won't be just a political blogger. I have deep passion for other topics, like music and pop culture, for instance. I think that if I commented on those areas, along with politics, I could maybe find that fire I once had.

Until then, I bid you adieu.

P.S. to Froth - I miss Drinking Liberally. Perhaps this summer I will return. Thanks for everything!
