Facebook killed the blogosphere star

No, not really.

Remember, correlation is not causation. Just because I'm on Facebook pretty regularly does not mean that's the reason why I have not been blogging as much lately. In fact, the reasons why I'm not blogging as much are the reasons why I'm on Facebook -- it fills the electronic conversational gap that my inability to keep up with blogging right now has left.

As for why I haven't been blogging, that has more to do with my ridiculously poor time management skills this semester. And the reasons for those are something I do want to blog about soon...if only I can find the time! (Oh, the irony.)

But now I have to get ready to go have lunch with a certain very dangerous blogger. And then later I'll be attending his big talk, followed by dinner.

And tomorrow Bullock and I are off to visit a town with a rockin' museum to eat some pig's ear, take in the view from our lakefront hotel, and belatedly celebrate my 40th birthday.

That might be the best post title ever.

Happy belated birthday, too!

I feel your pain, Dr. V. I had big blog plans for this semester, but Facebook has taken both the time I would normally allot to blogging and the impetus for blogging in the first place. I'm going to try to make some blog appearances between now and K'zoo, if only so I don't feel out of place attending sessions devoted to academic blogging. :)

So there's something about FB that is more immediately gratifying than blogging? That is an interesting theme in many blogs lately....

Have a good lunch with what I assume is one of the 100 most dangerous profs in America...
