Sometimes I regret that I'm a "daily blogger."
The reason I write daily is because I know my blog would die a long, slow death if I started skipping days. First I'd skip once or twice a month... then skip once or twice a week... and then, before I even realize it, I'm struggling to write two entries a month. At which point Blogography is dead. I've seen it happen with other blogs many times before. And so I continue to post something every single day, even if I don't have anything to write about or I'm going through something that can't be blogged.
I got nuthin'...
Fortunately, I can totally blog about nuthin'. You're welcome!
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
People are still blogging? You are a trooper, my love…I finally just plain gave up.
Exactly what happened to me. Well, that and law school sucked up my whole life and I haven’t found my balance yet. I miss it though and can’t bring myself to shut it down completely.
I am speechless, my friend. Life here, in Iraq, is so dull that I have “nothing” to blog about it. I can only say that due to dullness, my energy is enervating and sadly my current blog is dying 🙁
And I love your daily posts even if it’s for writing about nothing. 🙂
I’m impressed that you blog something every single day. I think if I knew I had to create a post every day it would feel like work and I wouldn’t enjoy it as much.
It happened to me.
You’re pretty awesome for keeping it going, more awesome than I’ll ever be able to explain in words. Thanks.
I skip too many days sometimes, mostly by letting other things in my life get in the way of my blogging. Some things, my personal projects that I am working on, are a valid excuse to skips days without blogging. Others like my day job, are not acceptable excuses.
I started a daily blog about five years ago when my first daughter was born. It was so successful I didn’t write a second entry until her sister was born 23 months later. That was the beginning and end of it.
So even though I don’t read blogography every day (sometimes I skip six months at a time), I’m always thrilled when I return to find you still at it. I often go on marathons catching up on the days I missed. (It can take almost a week to review six months!)
Even though many of your themes and circumstances are repetitive and predictable, they always feel fresh. Like vacuum packed lettuce. Over the years few things on the internet (or TV for that matter) make me smile as regularly as your entries. (George Takei’s Facebook makes me chuckle, but he’s a newbie.)
Not long ago I read your entry that you’ll be okay when the site expires, fades into nothingness. This made me sad.
Even though blogography only represents a thin slice of your actual life, it pretty much epitomizes what it means to be a decent American.
Not only should your site be archived, it should be encapsulated in orbit on a space station so that when archaeological aliens arrive (or cylons return) they have a sense that we weren’t all sombitches.
I also miss the JenniCam:
She’s decent too.
This is how I feel right now, but I’m supposed to have something publish on DadCentric tomorrow. Something about being in an 80+ degree house (we came home from Memorial Day weekend to a broken a/c) is keeping me from feeling creative this evening.
Long gone are the days of my blogging with any sense of regularity. Some days I miss it and wish I could find that spark to start it all up again.
I’ve always been very impressed that you manage to blog every day and hope that it continues. Even though I don’t always leave a comment, I do read every post.
