This post wraps up the "post every day in May" pledge inspired by Ginger at Ramble Ramble.  I have to say I really enjoyed it and I owe a huge debt of thanks to Ginger for getting my blogging going again.  I can't say everything I produced was blogging gold, but I think there was some good stuff in there.  The most important thing is that I am actually writing here again.  I am actually prioritizing this little bit of "my thing" every day. 

The thing I found most surprising is that I do have stuff to write about.  All the time.  Every day.  Knowing that I *had* to write about something each evening meant that I paid more attention to my "bloggable" thoughts during the day.  I might follow a though experiment out a bit further, or dig deeper into a news item just because it could be good fodder for this space.  I probably only used a tenth of the stuff that I could have, but I spent way more of the day stretching my brain.  When your days generally slip by in a groudhog-day-esque blur, this is just the greatest thing ever. 

I am curious to see what happens tomorrow.  Will it feel nice to take a day off?  Will I find myself feeling like the day is not done until I have written something?  Either way, this blog is back.
