This blog as well as several of my other blogs have been woefully neglected. While not the sole reason for this neglect I tend to get sidetracked.
Sidetrack [ˈsaɪdˌtræk] vb
to distract or be distracted from a main subject or topic, to divert from a main issue or course, wander from a direct or straight course
Each day, I surf the internet, clicking on hyperlinks, opening new tabs and windows, flicking between e-mail, Twitter, Facebook and whatever topic it was I planning to post about.

The trouble is each hyperlink leads to another, then another, and another; and while at least initially the tabs were related to the original subject, at some point the tabs take off on a tangent that becomes its own independent subject of inquiry, which then leads to new windows and perhaps another blog.
