on another note...
I've added this button to my sidebar. It represents a concept that I can whole heartedly support - blogging without obligation. I encourage you to check out the link for the thoughts behind the concept as well as a variety of buttons you can use on your blog, if you would like. Read these reasons for not feeling obligated to blog and see if you don't agree.
-> Because you shouldn't have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill.
-> Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine.
-> Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing.
-> Because sometimes less is more.
-> Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog.
-> Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone.
-> Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be "bloggable".
-> Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won't be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
