Well it finally hit me--one of the reasons I don't think I've been posting as much on my blog has not been my lack of interest in fruitcake--far from it. It's been a technology-related problem.
I don't have a computer at home. Well, I should be more specific--I don't have a computer with a full keyboard at home. For the past 4 years or so, I've been using tablets--first an iPad, now a Nexus. That was actually the problem. Have you ever tried writing a lengthy, thought-provoking post on fruitcake while tapping on an extremely tiny keyboard? Let me tell you, it's not easy.
This just hit me the other day. I just haven't wanted to compose posts on my 7 inch tablet!
This post is the product of my most recent purchase -- a Bluetooth keyboard. I am typing with the ease and comfort that only a full-sized keyboard can bring.
So I hope you can look forward to more posts from me on the subject of fruitcake. And in this new year 2015, I am going to state an unlikely prediction--that fruitcake will see a resurrection. The tide is turning, and I think fruitcake will finally win some followers. Stay tuned for more musings on that.
In the mean time, happy new year to all! If you have a special fruitcake memory from this past season to share, please do so in the comments!!
