Piss Or Get Off the Pot

I can't tell if I like that expression or not. But it's fitting. For months this blog has been circling the drain. I have trouble finding the time to write, and when I do I don't seem to have a lot to say.

I used to get many more comments than I do now (I blame myself). And I'm not the sort of blogger who claims to write just for herself. I do it for other people to read and chime in. If this were just for me, I'd keep my thoughts in my head where they belong. It would save us all a lot of trouble.

To make matters worse, a number of my favorite bloggers have closed up shop. Surviving Myself and Miss Minneapolis have peaced out. It's really very tempting to do the same.

But, I won't! I don't have a good enough reason to stop. And not only will I not quit, but I also will put more effort into it. For you, the 14 people who read this. All for you!

To quote the heartfelt sentiments of my favorite early 90s boy-band ballad... Please don't go! Don't gooo-oooh-oh-oh-oh! Don't go away! HEY HEY HEY!!!!

There. Now stay put.

Yay - keep it up! I will still be reading, and I am lame and you are not. So there's that. KEEP GOING.

I know! It's been so sad watching so many great bloggers throw in the towel. But as a devoted one-of-the-14 readers, I'm glad you're staying. And seriously, we should go for drinks in LA sometime.

Bri if you stop blogging then how would I be part of your life from 3000 miles away!
Besides that if you do "sign off" I will punch you HARD in the arm... and no one wants that!

My goodness! Thanks to everyone for the ego boost. I promise I'm not going anywhere (yet).

I also promised myself to spend more time reading blogs. I used to do it much more often and I loved it. You guys all have such great stories to tell.

Yay, glad you have decided to keep posting. It helps me feel like I actually see you more than once a year!
