Let's Just Call It Smell You Later

Dear readers (and the rest of you too),

This blog used to be good. It's kind of lost its way over the last few months and it's now just an infrequent repository of (kickass) songs and lame half-posts. I'm struggling to find the time to write in it, and I shouldn't have to struggle only to post crap.

I think for this blog to be good again, it needs direction. I need to take some time and rethink what I want it to be. I'm sure some of what I usually do will survive to WWW 2.0, but not all of it. Hopefully I'll be back before too long.

Thank you all for following my blog. I love knowing that someone out there is reading what I write, and occasionally enjoying it. I hope that I can come back and better reward your effort. I'll continue to read all of you, so I'll be around.

Thanks :)

I'll smell YOU later.

Enjoy your break.

Your posts are never 'crap', because no matter how brief or what they're about, they have your unique brand of humour and observation, and that's what we all love. I know you're ridiculously busy at work at the moment but I'm still selfish enough to hope that you come back soon :)

Trinity said...

Can't say I don't think of doing the same thing. Good Luck.

Mr London Street said...

I really respect you for saying this, I hope you will respect me for saying I agree. Take a break, come back and write the stuff you're capable of. Looking forward to it already.

You know, it's something in the air lately. Everyone's in a slump or feels they are. I enjoy insult...I mean...READING your blog as always. Even the posts you mentioned there. It's just a chance for some banter, which I enjoy. My blog isn't scintillating lately either but hell, I'm saying it anyway. Eff that nonsense. :) See you around Wordsy. Don't be gone too long.

I think it's highly commendable that you are holding yourself to a higher standard. Bravo!

I also think that your blogs are highly enjoyable, even in the small and infrequent excrements you've deemed fit to post lately.

You'll be missed, hurry back, etc.

Maybe you should write about actual crap. As you know from many of my workday emails, I have a stockpile of "material" for you.

MJenks said...

None of this occasionally, my good man. Every time a new post pops up, I read it with giggling joy and mirth.

I understand the need to punch reset, and I hope that you will take your time and come back refreshed, relaxed and ready to grab the bull by the scrotum once more.

Aww. You know, I like your blog posts even when you think they're half-assed, but I definitely agree that blog posting shouldn't be a struggle.

Of course, I'm dreadfully lazy and selfish, so I just decided to post whatever I wanted whenever I felt like it, instead of holding off to attain some kind of standard!

I hear you, good sir.

I'm of the firm belief that blogging should be fun. When it gets to feeling like a hassle or an obligation then it's time for a break.

Just don't stay away too long or you might find it hard to get into the habit of writing again.

Not that I would know anything about that (cough, cough)

Zibbs: Thank you. Though I don't recommend smelling me, especially today.

Girl: You are a wonderful barometer of humor, so I'm glad you think so :)

Trinity: I've done it once before, I think it's good for the soul, but then again so is writing. Doh.

MLS: Thank you, and I do. If I'm not proud of it, I'd rather just leave it.

Veggie: I agree about the banter part, that alone almost kept me going.

Anonymous: Your CLEARLY heartfelt sentiments are appreciated.

Red: Quitters never win, but they never lose, either.

Beckeye: I know you have the quintessential bathroom reader in you.

Jenks: Thank you for those very graphic sentiments :)

S&C: You always did say whatever you wanted!

Prunella: Cough cough, indeed! Get thee to a keyboard!

Tales: Put that whip away! Save it for Saturday night.

Always remember that half-assed for you is double the ass for anyone else.

I wouldn't worry about a theme, just write what you want. I love reading blogs because people are so interesting.

I'm the queen of blog abandonment... so I totally get it. That said, I always enjoy your Words³. Go out and live a bit then come back and make us laugh again. Blogworld would just not be the same without you.

Soda and Candy said...

hey I talked about you on my blog today!

You do not have my permission to do this. Get back here and entertain me, damn it!
