Well, this blog has now been inactive long enough that I think I have to make a decision one way or the other. And what I have decided is to stop blogging altogether. Indeed, this is part of a general move I have decided to make in regard to all social media. As with this blog, my Twitter Feed (@bernardfinel) and my Facebook page, are all, in a similar fashion, going to remain purely in archival mode.
It has often been a pleasure communicating with readers and friends, but also, frankly, probably has done me more harm than good in various professional and personal ways.
Most fundamentally, when I started my Twitter feed, I made explicit what had, sort of, always been my underlying philosophy about blogging as well. I expressed an observation and a wish: “I’m an opinionated boor… but hopefully not a bore.”
Turns out… I am a bore!
I’m in good company in that regard. But be that as it may, I am not sure that anyone really needs me to add to the mass of boring punditry and analysis out there.
Do have a Happy New Year. Maybe we’ll meet again, hopefully in person and over a beer, rather than online.
