Three weeks ago, I attended the ACCC Conference in Melbourne and committed a fatal error. I spent a week without the Internet, which meant, of course, that I didn’t check my e-mail.

When I returned to the parish and opened my inbox, I was buried by a mountain of e-mail that took a week to sort and respond to. So that meant my blog-free week became a blog-free fortnight.

But then, because I am weak-willed and rely on routine, a third week passed by without blogging because I had dropped the habit. Luckily, in recent days, I have received so many e-mails about the blog’s demise that I’m motivated back into action — if only to avoid the formation of another mountain of unanswered e-mails!

I have a good spam filter, and I block any e-mails that have more than four recipients, but still I relate to this video by Weird Al Yankovic. It says it all really.

I’ll start blogging again in earnest tomorrow.
