In the morning it gives you the look, as you greet it, and head out the door. The look it gives you is unforgettable and reminds you – yes we need to spend more time together. You promise your blog tonight will be the night I will write a post just for you.
It waits, patiently waits, like the neglected lover, waiting for the return of its first love. It never gives you grief only the passive-aggressive guilt you feel for neglecting it. It’s waiting for that image of flowers to appear or a kind word or two….
Instead it receives a barrage of excuses not tonight I’m sleepy, I have dishes to do, dogs to walk, legs to run, children’s scraped knees to tend too. You constantly put it off yet it waits, quietly, and silently for your return.
The moment you begin typing it knows you are back and you vow that you will post at least three times a week. A promise which you know will be broken. But all is fair in love and blogging.
Luckily, for me my blog is very forgiving….
Have you ever neglected your blog? If so how did you get back on track?
