B.W.O. - love this

* Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill.

* Because it’s 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 it’s 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…

I've always said I blog to mollify the voices in my head.

"I talk with the voices in my head"

"Oh? What do they say?"

"They say I'm crazy! Me? Crazy?!? THEY'RE the ones in. my. head!"


If blogging ever stops keeping the voices in my head in line, I'll move on to something else...

OH... this makes me feel so much better!

Well said!

Yeah!! I love that. Thanks so much for sharing it, my friend!
