A quick note to readers…

Yes, I know I’ve been slacking off my Nikkei View scribblings for more than a month now. Sorry about that. I’ve been busy with the day job (which I enjoy a lot, working on Internet and new media stuff for MediaNews Group Interactive, the parent company of The Denver Post, San Jose Mercury News and 70-some other newspapers across the country. And Erin’s now executive director of the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival (expect a blog post about that soon) and I’ve been helping out with CDBF’s website and social media efforts.

Those are all excuses, of course — I have time if I make time. I made time for the next call today, so I figured I should check in with you all, and let you know I have stack of topics to write about. If you’ve sent me a CD, a DVD or book recently, I owe you extra apologies. They’ll all get their due in the days to come, I promise!

Blogging’s a great outlet for me and I won’t stop, but I do end up taking breaks from time to time when I get busy elsewhere. Life gets in the way….

If you want to keep up with my babbling even when I’m absent from the Nikkei View, check in with me on Twitter or Facebook, or even FourSquare. At the very least, you’ll know where I’m eating all the time! I find these other outlets a faster and more convenient way to post links and make quick comments. I often intend to follow-up on stuff I Tweet about as blog posts, but then I get swamped and don’t get to them and it seems like old news by the time I turn to the blog.

So, there you have it. I’ll try to post something and clear out the backlog this week.

Thanks for hanging in there, and being patient!
