Death of the Reluctant

It’s been so busy at work that I haven’t had a chance to open up my blog aggrigator.

So I missed the news that Edward Champion’s Return of the Reluctant is no more.

When blogging becomes tedious, a vital piece of its worth is lost. Freedom turns to obligation. Without the desire, and without the dedication – without a driven goal to get up and post something worthwhile – blogging becomes a chore.

And when blogging becomes a chore, it’s time to stop. With that in mind, Ed stopped.

Sure, my favorite litblogger has stopped litblogging (though the Bat Segundo podcasts will still be in full effect) in order to focus on his first love – writing. Well, at least it’s for a noble cause.

Good for you, Ed. I hope I am there someday. Best of luck from a tag-along.
