Alright, I’ve been playing hooky and haven’t posted anything on here for awhile. It was not intentional or premeditated or anything… it just sort of happened. I looked at my page today and realized I’ve only posted once this month, twice in the last 31 days. For someone that wants to blog regularly, that’s really pretty pathetic!
I need to stop procrastinating, get “back in the saddle” and write something, but where to start? How about a David Letterman style Top 10 list?
Here are the Top 10 signs that it’s been too long since your last blog post:
#10. You feel guilty when you’re having fun on the weekend… (its almost like being back in college and blowing off studying again!)
#9. You’ve read more posts on “how to kill your blog” in the last month than you’ve written posts yourself.
#8. You search on Google for the internet equivalent of “the dog ate my homework”.
#7. If your heart monitor looked like your blog’s stats page, you’d be on your death bed.
#6. You’re receiving more “likes” on your comments than hits on your blog.
#5. You tell someone you haven’t blogged lately because “the internet wasn’t working”.
#4. You forgot your WordPress login!
#3. You confess that the excuse in #5 is what you found when you did the search in #8.
#2. You look at your blog page, see the date on the most recent post and say, “man, doesn’t that guy ever post anything new?” Then you realize that you’re gossiping to yourself about yourself.
And, the #1 sign that it’s been too long since your last blog post…..
(I’m drawing as big of a blank on the #1 “sign that it’s been too long” as I’ve been drawing on blog ideas.)
Oh well. In baseball, when a hitter slumps during this particular part of the year, they call it a June swoon. What do you do about it? As a batter, you just get back in the box and keep taking your swings, and eventually you’ll snap out of it… assuming you actually can hit.
Guess it’s time for me to take the bat off my shoulders and start swinging again…..
