It has a long time agon since I've posted here. Until YAPC::EU (for 3+ months) I'he tried to keep up with one post per week even it was not easy. The Iron Man competition (challenge?) has a good intention to make a lot of noise, but this can also slip to become an low-quality noise. On the other hand, not every post has to be crowded with information. Does it? After all it's just a blog. Or? Still it takes time and it is suppose to take time every week. Hopefully it's a good investment (payback?) to Perl community.
Another, or different kin, Iron Man issue is that it aims for English blog posts.

Still blogging (or doing noise) in local language can be much more useful for the purpose or bringing (enlightening) to Perl new people than writing in English where the information flow is plentiful. The same reasoning as for translating perlpod.
Jet another reason was that I was busy doing different things than blogging. Actually working
