Hey! You know what’s a full time job?
Reading other peoples’ blogs.
Man! I try to keep up. I really do. The more people I follow, the more things pop up on my “Followed Sites” stream. And I try to read them. I try to be a good follower. I am liberal (though sincere) with my likes. I even try to comment once in awhile. But after an hour or two of that, it dawns on me I haven’t written anything in my own blog. So I click the “Write” button and start to dash something off.
But then I have to deal with Bloggers Guilt. That’s the feeling of guilt you get when you’re writing in your own blog and realizing that dozens of posts by fellow bloggers are slowly scrolling down into oblivion in your “Followed Sites” stream. There’s no keeping up.
So I read and like and comment in a slapdash manner. That makes me the equivalent of that flaky, unreliable friend that you can’t ever count on to show up on time or be where they’re supposed to be. And when you are moving and need someone to help you, they’re no where to be found.
I’m sorry. I don’t want to be that way.
Please accept my sincere apologies!
And if you could all stop writing for about a month so I could catch up, that would be great.
Thank you for your consideration.
