Hunka Hunka Burnin Blog

Lord almighty,
I feel my temperature rising
Higher higher
It's burning through to my soul
--Elvis Presley, Burning Love
According to, this is my 378th post. I will have been blogging for two years come August. Although in that time, I have been bored, depressed and lost, I have yet to truly burn out.

I've read the Nonist's pamphlet on Blog Depression and seen all of my own signs. I have gone through the phases it seems all bloggers go through of enthusiasm, self-doubt, anger, and depression. I've agonized about page hits and number of comments. I've been pissed when I see someone write about the same topic I blogged about two years ago and get raves when my post went unnoticed. I've gone through the beginner blog phase of raging in blog posts about blog types I hate only to catch myself later writing about those very same blog topics (like this burn out).

The only cure I've ever found for any of it is to make another post. I love blogging. I dream about blogging. I'll admit it. I am obsessed with blogging. I'm like that guy in Reefer Madness playing the piano in a manic frenzy. So what? At least I have a hobbie.

I plan to keep blogging until they pry my keyboard or whatever other data entry device they invent out of my cold dead hands. And if there is an afterlife, I plan to keep blogging from that place where the flames never burn out. YOU HEAR THAT WORLD?
