Electra's Blog Obligation mantra

Since I have been missing in action for quite a while it seems, this leapt off Electra's blog today.  I hope she doesn't mind that I've passed it on.........

-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 not always to 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 stats, link and comments 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...
REPEAT AFTER ME: I will not apologize for not posting in awhile.

Friday Fill-ins

Helping weed, or not.........
Better late than never......

1. These three words describe my significant other (or dog, cat, baby, grandchild, best friend!): black, furry, snoring!
2. But he's a delight!
3. Oh, how I adore days with nothing to do but read.
4. Even the grumpiest person bends a little if one takes time to be friendly.
5. Inevitably, I get to the last page in the book.
6. My friend Liz is someone who never ceased to encourage me.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to dinner with friends, tomorrow my plans include cleaning out a cupboard or two and Sunday, I want to get to the plant nursery and replace a tree or two!
