What happened to the Gadfly?

24 June 2012 by FX Turk

First things first: this blog is not dead.  It is merely resting.

A bit of history: the guys and I started this blog with a lot of excitement and joy, and all of us had something to say (we thought) in enough volume that, if we loaded a cache of posts 4 weeks deep, we could always stay a little ahead of the curve.  Between the 6 or 7 of us, we could surely come up with 5 posts per week -- or at least on average 5 posts per week so that the buffer would stay full.

About mid-year last year was the first time be bottomed out, and right before T4G this year we bottomed out again -- with a lot of personal things going on in the group which sort of left us all with little to no time to write 3 to 5 paragraphs about the catechism.

Since then, we have recognized the lack of content, and have talked about it, and have agreed we need to fix that.  And we are working on it.

In the meantime, we do have over 200 posts for you to consider and reconsider.  We hope that by the end of the summer we'll have a renewed sense of mission and urgency, and also something edifying and useful to say.

Thanks for being faithful readers.  We'll try to be more faithful writers in the weeks and months ahead.
