New Years Resolutions

Happy New Year everybody. Well, it’s good to be back at Fun Time Tree House, especially with an entire new year ahead and a hopeful outlook that maybe this year will be even better than the last. You may have been wondering…

“Why the hell hasn’t Funtime Ben updated the site?”

Well, for most of last week, much like many of you, I was out of the office and didn’t have access/time to get a blog entry out to you beautiful people. There was another little hinderance, in that the more I tried to write something witty and meaningful, for the new year, the more mental road-blocks I came across. I really wanted the first post of the new year to be meaningful… A mantra by which to steer my life… This was all I could come up with.


Whenever I’m in the bloggin’ mood I seem to be miles from the nearest computer. Things happen to me, I know, I was there, but when I try to translate that into a mildly entertaining story I wind up with a well constructed diatribe that reads like the back of a box of Cheerios. I assume all I need is more practice and more time to master the tricks and writing style needed to rock the online diary world.

I want to create something special here, but I haven’t quite figured out what it is yet. Please bare with me as I try to find out what it is.


  1. Keep writing
  2. Enjoy my life
  3. Not feel pressured
  4. Have my own personal voice
  5. Remember what’s important

  1. glad you're back!

    i missed your ass

  2. Oh Cindy, you sure know how to make a guy blush. For anybody who doesn't read Cindy's blog, she is following her life-long dream to live in the more tropical clime.

    Happy tropical fun times.

  3. FB-I found your site again after a while and enjoy your honesty. Keep writing – we all can't be hilarious all the time (except dooce of course). Question for you: is it rude to comment on blogs if you don't have a blog of your own?

  4. I don't think it's rude. Some people are not blog writers. I know I wasn't for a long time due to time restrictions, personal conflicts, or just plain old 'I'm not interesting enough to have a blog' syndrome. It doesn't mean you can't enjoy or explore the blog world, or sart up a blog later on. You don't have to be a filmmaker to be a film critic and you don't need to have a blog to comment on one… at least not on mine you don't. What I do is meaningless if there aren't people like you sharing and interacting with me. Your comments make this thing interesting, so… Thank you for your comments Glovia, thanks a lot.

    And Happy New Year too.
