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.
