Yes, that's right, I've resorted to putting a blank entry in for January 2007 just to keep the monthly directory structure intact. A far cry from the year-and-a-half where I spent an hour-an-a-half a day crafting a thoughtful, witty blog entry. Now, I'm just doing the minimum to keep the thing on life support.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both approaches. Since discussing them here runs the potential risk of turning this into a thoughtful, pithy entry, I'll stop now.
