Perhaps it was being a little envious of the people who are participating in NaNoWriMo, probably it had something to do with my dissatisfaction with Facebook, which was most certainly combined with my fear that I am succumbing to its fast food communication mentality. Ultimately though, the blame rests with Justrun. Mom, she started it!
I have been noticed a cooling off in my bogging activity lately. And not just in the amount of time I spend attending to my own blatherings, but in the amount of visits that I make to your blogs. And this bothers me. Because the blogging community is where you get meat and bones discussion, its where people can explore ideas and emotions and writing styles, and get the feedback that we need.
But lately, I've been slacking. It's so much faster to pop in to visit that cheap floozy Facebook to be told that Cindy has just joined the Dill Pickle Appreciation Society than it is to visit Cindy's blog and find out why Cindy joined the DPAS (to get closer to that cute boy she sees outside the library every day, chomping into a Bick's Extreme Garlic Baby Dill. You know, the interesting stuff.)
My laziness was starting to bother me. So when I saw that that trendsetter Justrun had signed up for NaBloPoMo, thereby pledging to post daily for one month, I just had to follow her into the deep end of the pool.
Of course it was only afterward that I remembered that I will be travelling for five days in November and entertaining house guests for a week. But I guess on those days I will simply write a blog post telling you about the Universal Movement to Stamp Out Unmelted Cheese group that I just joined.
