i like to write

Please give me a little feedback on what I should do with this here blog. Assuming that any readership that I had at all has been squandered by my neglect, I’d like to take this opportunity to get some advice from the few people who do want me to keep on keeping on. Help me help you.

Can you actually read it? The current theme with the moving clouds freezes my computer, so I am thinking of changing it to a more generic theme just for ease of use. I know that some are fans of Jar’s technicolor dreamcoat, but if you can’t use it then it doesn’t matter how pretty it is. What do you think? Also, do the .gifs bother you?

I want to keep writing. Is it ok if I just keep getting into trouble and writing about my misadventures? Is that good enough for you? I think we can make this work. I like to write.

    I say keep it up. I always read your blog when the wanderlust sets in!

    Oh, yeah, keep us advised on what’s happening in Tucson. Have Dupnik’s boys made a sieve out of anybody in the last few days?

    I promise to put your blog back on my favorites list and read it religiously but you have to read my blog once in awhile, too. It doesn’t really have a theme, except whatever I’m thinking about at the moment. http://nailheadtom.blogspot.com/

    I like the blog. Even when your not riding it’s fun. Get back on the road soon if you’re inclined as that is the most fun. I like the cloacal references but that’s the kind of guy I am! I really don’t mind what you write as long as you do frequently.

    i still consider this a cycling blog. just because your not on a tour doesnt mean your not having cycling adventures. you clearly love to ride. keep up the good work. post a little more often. ride your bike daily and tell us about it.

    December 13th, 2009. One of the worst days of my life and the beginning of a few months of hell. Also the first day I started reading this blog. It helped…….keep writing. Even if it is about shit.

    I also like reading your blog. My computer at home is old and can’t handle it very well. It shuts down. So I always catch a peek at work. I enjoy reading about your adventrues. Keep up the free spirit life. and your blog. Make it yours.

    gif’s is good! writing is good! the clouds are cool, probably need some optimizing though, they tend to eat up CPU for some reason.

    as long as you are posting something, its hard to go wrong. i like the bizarreness of this blog, its pretty much one of a kind.

    Moar .gifs, touch the clouds and the kitten dies. Just post shit as it happens. Live and latebreaking.
    Oh yeah, and bring back the 1970′s synthesizer shit.

        Wow! The journey continues.
        So let it be written.
        So let it be cloudless. Or not.
        Gif make me laugh. And owls.

    It’s all good. Seems like the best draw for new readers is the CGOAB journals. Best get traveling. Personally, I’d like to know what Jar is doing in Panama. If that is in fact the case.

        Hi Andy! Jared is going to start his own blog soon. He returned from Panama a few months ago and now he’s getting ready to go on a solo tour. I will post once his blog is up and running, but it’s just gonna be me on here now.
