Today, I checked the BFZ's sitemeter for the first time in months and I was appalled by what I found. The daily average number of visitors to the BFZ has fallen right off a cliff. It has dropped by over 50%!

Now, I know that in 2012 my posting has been less than regular. I'll go weeks, sometimes even close to a month without posting at all, and then I'll reemerge to post some lame piece of drivel. I think much of the blame can be laid squarely at the feet of yours truly for the sorry state of things around here. However, I also agree with President Obama that George Bush is also partly to blame.

My blogging has not been up to par. I'm not fishing for comliments here- just stating the facts. In fact, I have posted 54% fewer times than at this same point last year (2011- 183 posts and 2012- 99). Even so, I could still beat last year's posting record of 372 posts if I were to post 1.43 times a day for the remainder of the year. I'm not sure I'm ready to promise that, but I think that is a worthy goal.

The good news is that you all appear to be keeping to the first and second rule of the Bummer-Free Zone, and I thank you for that.

For those of you who have faithfully continued checking in despite my lack of recent content I want you to know that although the BFZ has fallen on hard times I will not be shuttering the place for the summer like in 2011. In fact, I remain committed to bringing back the former glory of this humble corner of the internet.

Bummer-Free Zone!!!
