We're going to take a brief break from reviewing the day's headlines to talk about something that many of you have asked me about recently. For those of you who don't know, the last few years have been a little crazy on multiple fronts around here. Through all of the chaos, though, I've consistently had a window to sit down and write for a few hours each day, which is good, because an average Clutter takes about two hours to clear out. (I know, it reads like it takes 10 minutes, but it's a lot of hard work to sound this casually random!)
The big development is that I recently found a new job, which is great, because Clutter doesn't pay for itself. The only problem is that it involves a longer commute than I've had in years, which is close to 1.5-2 hours round-trip each day. Thus, my reliable window is now closing.
So, what does this mean for Clutter? Will we just turn off the lights at Clutter Headquarters and find something else for BDH and Little Buddha to do each day? Is this the end? Will we toast you all one more time with a medium DD and then just go our separate ways?
NOT A CHANCE.
Clearing out the Clutter has followed its mission statement for almost three years now: To help a guy with a large head get his thoughts organized for the day. I'm thrilled about this new adventure, but I still need that help. I make no bones about the fact that this is a self-centered web site. The primary objective is to keep me from talking to myself too much. However, I remain humbled by the fact that so many of you continue to hang out with me, and my blue dog and little Buddha. We've had visits from 47 states and 70 countries so far this year alone. Clutterheads are everrrrrrrrrrrrywhere, and that rocks.
So, what's next? I'm not entirely sure. It may take me a little while to figure out how I'm going to make this work, so I ask for your patience. We may change the publishing schedule, some Clutter's may be a little shorter than usual, or we may miss a day here and there, but I hope you'll continue to check in often and enjoy a fresh coffee or Sam Adams with us. You know how anxious we get when you're not here. I know the Internet is a fickle place, but please stay with us, and we promise to continue trying to make it worth your time.
For now, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
