If you've been blogging for a long time and the interest is waning, it might be worth going back through your old posts and looking for two things. One, which ones still make you smile? Two, which ones received comments that make you smile?
I discovered this by accident while mucking about with my SiteMeter statistics. A bunch of people had been directed by Google searches to some monthly archives. As I tried to figure out just what Google was directing them to, I noticed myself reacting to what I had written.
As I looked past week after week of World of Good posts, I kept thinking, "Man, do I miss those." For whatever reason, I just have not had the energy on Tuesday nights or Wednesday mornings to churn those out any more. Since they are not topical, I'm going to try to write three or four this weekend and have them ready to post so I can get back into the swing of it.
The second thing that struck me was the fun array of comments on this post about my ultra-cheap, but ultra cool stereo for my garage. I inserted one of my favorite Monkees tunes in it to let people know what Dr. Frankenstein's Stereo's inaugural song was. There were only a few comments, but they still made me smile.
Now all I need to do is bottle the inspiration that led to those...
