Where has all the blogging gone?

I warned you, didn't I? I said that there would be times I would take a break from this blog. Of course, I never thought it would be over a year. I am ready to start posting again.
A big hurdle for me was this huge article I have wanted to write for some time. It is based on Ed Stradling's documentary Cheques, Lies and Videotapes found on the Revenge of the Cybermen. You see, when I was younger in the late 1980's I got heavily involved into collecting rare Doctor Who episodes on video. I started off by collecting locally from friends to eventually having friends all over the world I get stuff from. I wanted to write it as I felt I have a unique story and Ed's documentary focused only on people in the UK. This is fine but to me that is only part of the story.
At any rate, I had wanted to write this and everything else fell by the wayside. Then I was fortunate enough to work on some wonderful Doctor Who related projects that took up all my other time. Now over a year later, I see that some people have left me comments on some of my articles, that means so much to me. These are comments by people who enjoy the series I enjoy. I also re-read some of my articles. I am no writer but these aren't bad. Some interesting points were made and I remember things about those productions that I since forgot after doing the research. I want to do this again.
This week or next week: Even though I haven't been writing, it doesn't mean I haven't stopped watching. I will sneak into #10 Downing Street to see Jim Hacker's first few weeks in office as I look at the first 2 episodes of Yes, Prime Minister.
I hope you check back.
