A Note About Me and My Blog

A very dear friend recently pointed out that it is painfully clear that I don't LOVE my blog (because I don't blog while traveling, I am way behind on my travel update blogs, and I fail to recognize things I should be blogging about saving them for email, phone or face to face conversations). She went on to say that while my posts are generally interesting and well presented, they are also hopelessly infrequent, entirely too serious, and altogether too obviously a means to an end (i.e. a way to keep up with those we love without having to communicate with them individually all the time - or ever, an area in which we do not excel). I tried to protest, but the facts are on her side. In the past nine months I have posted fewer than 30 times, sometimes going an entire month without posting anything - a sin in the blogging community. All tolled including last year and this year I am well under 100 total posts - an obvious problem. And perhaps most criminal of all, I have failed to pepper my posts with pictures of our very cute child whom she pointed out needs no accompanying text to justify one or 20 all about him entries. And so faithful readers, having been sufficiently shamed into reinventing myself as a blogger, I am vowing here and now that going forward I will err on the side of frivolity, frequency and fatuousness.

Oh, I am so excited. Wow us with your frivolity, please. I will send you a McGriddle if you do it every day.

Adrianne is also guilty of infrequent posting. I actually am ok with infrequent updating as long as you continue to write comments.

Before she is unfairly defamed any further, I must interject that the dear friend who inspired this post was not Adrianne. Though a friend and a dear one at that, it would be a little hypocritical of her to criticize my failure to post at the Jessica, Celia, Paige rate, and as such, she did not.

Heather said...

You could really just avoid all the criticism by having Caleb write the blog. Sebastian has never once been blamed for not blogging enough....

Paige said...

No, you are funny. And we would truly appreciate more frequent updates. You are funny, and your life is so unique in the FS that you really must share with us who pay the hideous taxes to support you.

Go ahead and blog more, you KNOW we will be here to comment on every word!
