404: Message not found

I have had this problem for a while, and I don't know what to do about it (or even if I should do anything about it): I just can't think of what to write about anymore.

I've started many a blog on this here internet, and I'll admit that some of them were started for the sake of laying claim to the username, so nobody else can use it (oh, the numerous wordpress.com accounts). This is the case both for my personal name as well as names of projects I'm working on (band, blogs, etc).

But even in a place like this, a personal blog made just for the fun of it, I'm still having writer's block. Have I run out of things to say? I've shut down a blog or two before for that reason. The problem, in my mind, is that I so bad want to say something, to take advantage of what I have, and yet I come back blank when trying to express myself. Even this blog post presented a challenge.

Perhaps the problem is wanting to say something when I have nothing to say, as if it's so important that I say something that I should force myself?



Writer's Block Part I
Writer's Block Part II

Is this site still alive?

So, I decided to revive my Pleonast account. It looks, however, like this site isn't really active anymore. Not really seeing many updates in the last 2-3 years or so. I'm sure that most have completely defected towards Facebook, which I suppose was inevitable. I like this little site, though. So minimalist, so... quirky (but in a good way). Plus, there's something so strange, yet compelling, about the rooms feature. That's probably the main feature I missed the most.

I wonder if I'm the only person using this site right now? I hope not.

    OK, so... none of the people I know are using Pleo, but a quick look at the "users online" page tells me that the site is not, in fact, dead. It's not exactly bustling with a lot of activity, but I am not the only person posting here. That makes me feel a little better. Why I should feel bad about a website is another question altogether! Now, what to do now that this profile is back underway...
