I’ve Got to Lighten My Load a Bit.
I started this “Trains and Travel” blog almost ten years ago and since then have churned out 2,135 posts. As more and more people found this site, I began feeling compelled to generate a new post almost every day.
But the truth is I’m getting too damn old and tired to come up with six or seven new posts a week that are worthy of your time. Worse yet, I fear the quality of the writing may have started to slip and that’s just not acceptable.
And so I’ve resolved to cut back to three, possibly four, posts each week. The focus will continue to be mostly on travel—train travel in particular—but I suspect that once in a while I’ll give vent to my personal political opinions. Just skip over those posts if you don’t agree, but it’s therapy for me.
I do understand that having to check this site repeatedly to see if there’s a new post is very annoying. So if you haven’t done so already, click on this RSS icon.
That will get you set up to receive an email alerting you whenever I put up a new post.
Thanks very much.
Great you feel you owe us something, but honestly, you don’t. This shouldn’t be a burden for you, even if any effort is appreciated. Thanks for all the posts until now!
Very kind of you to say that. Many thanks
Ever since coming across your website, I’ve read almost every single post. While looking forward to my first cross-country train ride next year, I gained much valuable information from reading your site. I look forward to your coming posts (even if there is just one a week) and the occasional political rant.
You need to do you for you Jim. Know that we all appreciate the work you do!
Very nice of you to say so. Mahalo.
Good for you! You have made a wise decision because you should be in charge of your blog instead of being committed to writing every single day. I will continue to look forward to reading your thoughts and opinions two or three times a week, and even just once a week.
Thanks … much appreciated.
