Well boys and girls, the news that I have decided to pull the plug on this blog are true, but rather than kill the poor suffering beast as I should, I've decided that a sabatical is in order instead.
Two things happened. First - this blog really has had a hard time finding itself, and as a result, it hasn't found an audience. Aside from the small legion of people following it, and the occassion comments about how folks have found it and love it, its never really generated interest from folks, and that is a direct result of my not being able to find its focus.
One thing that I never wanted this to become was a self masturbatory excercise in how great I am, blah blah blah, because that would be boring and that would make me a bore.
But on the other hand I have never wanted this to become some rambling screed from someone bemoaning their lot in life. Lets face it, we've all had lives - some of them great, others far better than we think they are, but for most of us, its a day to day event just getting through the day.
So instead of killing the beast, I'm going on an extended leave of absence.
I will be back - at least I hope I can make it back if so inclined - on this blog.
In the meantime, you can find me two other places for the immediate future:
Periodically Anachronistic my blog on magazines out of time, and out of my imagination
Bad Art Museum of Ohio (launching in February, 2010)
So, for now DHTISH is on sabatical. Hope to see you soon.
