Skipjack K8 BS: Balancing Mudcat and real life (116* d) BS: Balancing Mudcat and real life 28 May 06

I am probably damning myself by bucking the apathy, but here goes.....

I hang out here a couple of times every working day, for a few minutes, and maybe once during a slow evening. When the weekend comes, I'm out doing something, gigging, sailing, whatever, and on a Sunday night I check in here to see what gives. What amazes me is who gives, and how much. There must be people here giving their entire waking hours, writing screeds and polemics that are read by (as my violing-playing friend says) literally tens of people.

So my question is this. Is over-participating here like being in a bad marriage? Is it something you do and do and do, because that is what you do, and then you eventually hit one of life's flippers, and you realise it was all a terrible waste of time?
