I haven't been blogging much lately, and that probably won't change right away. I've got a million things to blog about - thanks for the links you've been sending me! - but I'm not sure when, or if, I'll get to them.

I've been pruning my fruit trees, and it's been such an incredibly warm March that everything is bursting out at once. I just can't keep up with it. I've got my trees and bushes pruned, and I'm starting on my grapevines, but they're already starting to leaf out, not just bud out.

And it will be the raspberries after that, and - sometime - get my garden started. (I wanted to plant some cold-weather crops weeks ago, but I just haven't had the time.) The grass is getting long, too, which isn't a big deal, but does take time away from everything else.

Anyway, I'm just behind on everything. (You should see my email Inbox!) But I'll still be blogging. I'll try to post some things without much commentary, because those are quick. As I said, I'll try. You know how hard it is for me to say nothing. :)

And I do want to post my second year in Summitspear, my Dwarf Fortress fort. It's been nearly a month since my first post, but I've had little time to play.

Yeah, I know those aren't popular here, but I have a lot of fun writing them, and my vote trumps yours. Heh,  heh. Frankly, just the fact that they're fun to write probably means I'll get to that before most of the rest of this stuff.

OK, I just thought I'd give you a heads-up. I don't want to lose the readers I've got (each one as precious as rubies, I assure you). I'm not dead and I'm not losing my interest in blogging. But I did say that I'd be slowing down once winter was over, and I'm especially busy right now.

Sounds good. I for one, want to hear all about your garden, how the fruit turns out and how goes your war with pests like squirrels.

I was just telling Carol about your post about house sparrows. I remembered lots of details except for the name of the bird. :( I'll print out the whole thing today, so she can read it.

I guess, my only point if I have one is that it doesn't matter as much what you write about since I'd never guess I'd be so interested in birds. Instead it's more important that the article be passionate and interesting.

Thanks, John. I just write about things that interest me. With luck, they'll interest other people, too.

Different subjects appeal to different people, but we can still find an article interesting, even when it's not a major interest. In your own blog, for example, I find your comments on film noir interesting, even though I'm not a big movie fan (and so I seldom have any comments to make about such posts).
