The Neglected Blog

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?

  1. I haven’t neglected TMiYC (yet) because of its purpose, but I used to neglect my old “Public Journal” all the time. This entry made me chuckle, though, given that I just drafted an entry about non-blogging writing-related neglect. Of a sort. 🙂

  2. I tend to blog in fits and starts myself. I usually kick myself back into gear with a ‘brain dump’ of miscellaneous things that have been going on during my absence.

    Glad to see you posting again! 🙂

  3. I haven’t really neglected it yet, but then again, I cheat…. When I have free time, I write numerous posts at once, and then save them. For example, when I went to the DR for work in Feb, I wrote 13 posts on the plane rides. I still have some of them that I never posted. Also, when something bothers me (like everything going on with Alex) I find blogging is like theraphy, so it makes me write…. I do feel bad that I have been neglecting reading & commenting on other blogs lately..

    1. I have been very neglectful! I was just going to check in on your blog. I hope Alex is feeling a little better:)

      I have posts that are unfinished or I scrape it. I need to get more organized like you 🙂
