According to Wikipedia:
Flotsam is floating wreckage of a ship or its cargo. Jetsam is part of a ship, its equipment, or its cargo that is purposefully cast overboard or jettisoned to lighten the load in time of distress and that sinks or is washed ashore. Lagan is cargo that is lying on the bottom of the ocean, sometimes marked by a buoy, which can be reclaimed. Derelict is cargo that is also on the bottom of the ocean, but which no one has any hope of reclaiming.
You learn something new every day. Now that I know the difference between flotsam and jetsam, I suspect that this blog is now jetsam, not flotsam. But that word reminds me too much of the Jetsons … whom I never liked very well, primarily because of Jane’s skirt.
At any rate! If you’ve been following this blog – and I apologize if you have because there’s been a whole lot of nothing to follow – you may have noticed that … well, there’s been a whole lot of nothing to follow. I posted all of seven times in 2011 (not including guest posts). That’s … not worth reading. (Although the guests posts were good.)
The truth is, all the interesting pet stuff has moved firmly and inexorably to the Petopia forums. You want pet news? It’s fresher there. You want to talk about pets? Show off your pets? Bitch about pet tames? All there. Mounts and mini-pets and general hunter stuff, too. The community there is way faster than I ever was with posting the news and figuring stuff out. It’s a great, friendly, knowledgeable community and I love them to death.
But it leaves the question open … what do I do with this blog? After thinking about it off and on for months, I decided to turn this into a more general purpose personal blog … despite the risk of boring my remaining three readers to death. Since my personal life, such as it is, revolves almost entirely around the internet – especially MMO games – I figure maybe it will be interesting enough to read.
I guess we’ll see.
By the way, I’ve adopted Google+ as my general social community of choice. Feel free to circle me there.
