Ten Years Later...

Today is not only New Year's Eve, it's the tenth anniversary of Bourgeois Nerd! Here is the first post.

At the five-year mark, I did a big retrospective. For the ten-year mark, I... won't be doing that. Too much work, and waaaaaay too much looking back and realizing how dull I am. Really, as you might have noticed, the old blog isn't exactly a gushing font of content these past few years. Such is life, I suppose, as well as having already said everything that needs to be said about me. But I don't really get any enjoyment even out of Skimpy Sundays, and it all feels like a big chore, and... Well, I won't be melodramatic. I do still occasionally like to share things, and I get great satisfaction out of Bourgeois Book Club in particular, so BN is not "dying," it's just officially sedated. I outlasted "blogging" in the form it took when I first started, as well as a lot of better, more popular bloggers, so I feel smug about that. Ten's a nice, round number, too, which appeals to my OCD.

If anyone's been reading for any length of time, thanks! And, like I said, I'm not going away, I'm just making official the sporadicness. I love you all.

Happy New Year!

Best of luck in the future. I've been a reader for four or so years and have always looked forward to your posts.

Thank you! Like I said, I'm not "going away" completely, just "stepping back" if you will.

Hey Frank! I think I learned more about you from your comments on Bill in exile! Which led me to BN. I stop in on Sunday for Skimpy stuff and to see what the week has brought you. Since Scott Smith blogs so rarely now (which I totally miss) we hear less from the band of brethren. Scott said months ago that if he feels he isn't doing a quality blog he'll be gone. Since I don't comment on BN very much, I want to tell you how much I've enjoyed it. We fellow book readers have so much in common. Take care, martin
