I started out the week thinking I would write an article every day this week. I had a couple of articles in reserve and I also have my series on Solar Energy going so I thought this would be a good week to publish something every day. Oh, how mistaken I was! I opened "Write Article" and what did I find? A blank page except that little note that said, "type article here." As soon as I saw all that white space I knew I was defeated. There would be no article for March 17, 2010. Instead I will spend the day enjoying the beautiful weather we are having. I will keep my eye open for a story worth the effort tomorrow. I will rest and recoup my thoughts so I can start out on March 18 with a new and fresh view towards the world around me and its potential to supply news or information which I can manipulate and make interesting for my Column on Newsvine.
For those readers who are relieved that they don't have to wade through another one of my extended essays, I say relax, don't fret, tomorrow will be another day. Since there is no article today you don't have to waste your time filling in all those little blank spaces down below which say "Enter Comment Here." However, if you are one of those people who just can't stand blankness, nothingness, or leaving well enough alone, I suggest you say something brilliant or exciting or funny or at least interesting in your blank space so others will not feel they have wasted their time coming by here.
Until I do get the urge to post an article I suggest you may want to go back and read my last five or six articles. They may just provide me with an excuse for being so lax today. I got tired out trying to get others back to work. You can find my column at farmer.newsvine.com or you can just click on "oldfogey" and it will take you right there. Please don't let the fact that I didn't publish an article today keep you from watching tomorrow. Don't let my efforts die on the vine. Thanks, Jerry Firman
