Why do bloggers feel the need to apologise to their "readers" if they haven't posted in a few days (or weeks)?
I'm feeling 'blogging malaise'!
I never apologise to the 3 people who read my blog, and I neglect posting for weeks on end!
If I got nothin' to say, then I got nothin'! I don't need to been forgiven for that. I need to be thanked!
My comments should fill with remarks like:
X- "Hey B! Thanks for not posting a bunch of links! --X"
Y- "B--I saw you leave your house today! I'm glad you didn't bother posting about the fact that it's sunny outside, and that you don't feel like posting! Keep up the silence until something cool happens! --Y"
Z- "I glad that you haven't posted about how much you hate Bush/how terrible the war is/how sad Hurricane Katrina makes you--because it goes without saying. Keep not saying it!! --Sexy Zed"
I'm not trying to be mean, but I think bloggers should post because they want to post, not because they HAVE to post. They shouldn't have to ask for penance if their lives prevent them, or their inspiration fails.
Post whenever you like, guilt-free!
Make blogging YOUR bitch, not the other way around!
And don't post something describing NOTHING, because it gives my NOTHING some depressing solidarity.
