I hate when I read blogs and the blogger starts out by writing "So sorry I haven't been blogging, little readers! I have been so busy...yadda yadda yadda." The only time this is acceptable is when the blogger is someone who has a famous blog with thousands and thousands of daily readers who are depending on that blog to get them through a boring day at the office.
For most of us, that is not the case.
Why should I apologize for taking 6+ days off from blogging? Nobody gives a flying fuck. Of my 37 whopping followers, should I apologize to the one loyal reader I have (hi shnookums)? No, because not even he gives a flying fuck, as he is forced to sit down and read my blog whenever I write. It is not like he reads it on his own. In fact, the usual evening banter at the Goodwin house goes something like this:
"honey, I blogged today."
"oh, ok, when I am done doing this really important thing [insert picking nose, scratching back, doing absolutely nothing] I will sit down and read it."
"good, there will be a quiz on it later."
Perhaps someday (read: never), when I have more than the grand total of 37 followers, and people know who I am and stop me in the P.Chops to say "OMG are YOU granny?!?! I love your blog! Keep posting, it is the only thing that gets me through the day!" THEN I will start apologizing if I miss a few days of blogging.
But not until then.
Holding my ground,
