Rumors of My Demise….

….are greatly exaggerated. Yeah so I’m back. I should first apologize, and oddly enough I don’t really know why. After all, I don’t owe you wonderful intelligent readers who clue into my blog each week anything; but I feel like I do. Over the last year of my maiden voyage into blogging, I felt like I was producing cutting commentary, helpful tips, tricks and how-to’s just for each and every one of you. Each comment I got was a blessing, a sign that someone out there in the wilds of the interwebs read my rambling article and took something away. And each page view meant that much more, as someone was looking over my work appreciatively (or unappreciatively) and/or just stealing my pictures I rightfully stole first.

So I don’t owe you anything, yet I feel like I do. And for being absent for the last few weeks I apologize. Personal life has kind of been busy for me, and I had a vacation in there where I was away from my computer for a while (I’m still recovering from the shakes, tyvm… the doctor’s think I’ll be back to normal after a few marathon gaming sessions). Again, no excuses, but I keep having this nagging feeling like I’m letting someone down.

Besides, like most of you I’m drowning in Jester posts. Good lord, he makes me look terrible. Whereas I’m about good for one really decent post a week; he’s about good for one really solid post a day. It’s an average I can’t even begin to match up with, let alone try and beat.

So as my extended apology and as a way to goad people to come back to my site, I’m posting a flurry of posts. Well, a flurry for me. A flurry like Jester would put me in a coma. My flurry will be 2 to 3 posts in as many days as I “catch up” to the time that I missed. For some of you it will be old hat by now, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Also I’ll have my thoughts on the new ships and what they mean for those of us that don’t have to deal with Incarna at all, and maybe a wormhole exclusive or two.

For those of you keeping count here on Sleepless, I’m reaching that magical one year of blogging. When I stop and think about it, it really kinda blows me away. I started this blog hoping I wouldn’t make a fool of myself as I gave it the ol’ college try. Never in my wildest expectations did I think Sleepless would become as popular as it seemingly has. I will certainly strive to continue that as we move forward. But in the meantime I think I’ll probably have a “year in review” post as I highlight the stuff you may have missed.

So on we go.

TL;DR: I’m back, I’m sorry, Jesters a robot, New posts coming, Happy happy birthday to me
