Falling off the hobby horse

Despite the exciting news that I won a certain essay contest and can soon be found in another more high profile online location, I have to a degree lost interest in online dating as a hobby. This is not a philosophical issue. I maintain a firm belief that internet dating, while not always fun, is always interesting. It's just that I am the type of person who eventually tires of all hobbies for a spell, no matter how fulfilling. Those who are following my long-term progress as a human may recall that in 1997 I was ready to throw in the towel on flute-tooting, but at my mother's insistence, I continued to live in the realm of band nerd-dome for at least 4 more years.

So expect more blog posts from moi. Also one thing I am immune from burning out on, is shameless self-promotion, which is nearly all what online dating is. And what more exciting an audience than that of internet strangers, which bears the promise of meetings to mutually discover whether there was truth in advertising. Not fun. Interesting.
