Temporary resolution

…with a temporary solution.

My new resolution is — for the months of January and February only — to try to curb my addiction to blogging, so I can get other stuff done between the hours of 5 and 6 a.m. every weekday. Weekends are open.

It’s a difficult thing for me, since writing is a pastime I enjoy almost more than any other hobby; so much so, in fact, that I wish it wasn’t a hobby, if you get my drift.


I wonder if I could take a quick poll of interest (and yes, this will require lurkers to come out of the shadows, temporarily!). If you would like to be notified by email when there’s a new post here at RtB so you won’t have to constantly check out the homepage, please indicate your interest via commenting below. Here’s the deal:

  1. For anyone who comments — or has ever commented in the past — here, I already have your email address, as long as your posting name is the same.
  2. For those who have never commented, posting a comment below will give me your email address (but it won’t be shown in public, so only I will have it).
  3. Once I have your email address, I can notify you when I post new content here.

Would you be interested in something like that? I know everyone’s busy. If you’d rather just take your chances and be surprised (or better yet, dig into the archives and leave some cool comments for me to find next time I log in), no problem. I just want to make things more convenient for my 100 worldwide readers. :-)

As anyone who’s ever commented here already knows, I will never send you any kind of marketing email. See all the ads on this site? Oh, wait…

So. Tell me your articulate and compendious thoughts. Would you like to be notified over the next couple of months when I publish new drivel?

Ready, steady, comment.

Much love from the soon-to-be hairless Fink

Well, this emailing thing obviously isn’t going to work for me. I won’t be able to get out of bed to check it if I haven’t read my daily dose of “Finkweb.” It’s a vicious circle….

But, I guess if this is the best we can do…

What do you mean, “soon-to-be-hairless”?

I can totally understand, Bird. It’s always amazed me that you find time to blog at all! You already know that I want to be notified when you post something. I will miss my morning read with my java, but you have to prioritize, and we all understand that. Love you lots, honey!

I’m with Mavis – hairless? St. Baldricks, or just a trim?

Yes, please send me a notice. Going to miss my daily dose, though – gotta tell ya.
Make sure you send David Soul a notice too – he’ll definitely want to know. :P
