I Am Not Dead

Hidey ho, reader! I know I haven’t been posting as regularly as usual, but I assure you I have not been abducted by misogynistic pygmies, or anyone else for that matter.

I could give you a million reasons — I’ve been buried at work, my corn’s been acting up, I’ve been having nonstop violent sex with Denny DelVecchio… You know, the usual excuses. But they don’t really matter, do they?

I will say this: yes, I am still seeing Tom. But I don’t much like to write about him anymore. It’s one thing to write about random dates who I’ll never see again, but quite another to write about your relationship. It just doesn’t quite feel right to me. So, being that this is a single girl’s blog, I’ve been a tad stumped in coming up with material.

Well, that’s kinda lame. I’ve got a thousand stories and opinions on the subject in my back pocket that I could write about. So it really is an issue of time. Dang, I just said I wasn’t going to give that excuse, didn’t I? I lie like a fly with a booger in my eye.

You see, I can’t just pump out a blog post in a half hour like some bloggers do. I’m super anal and I edit and re-edit like crazy. I don’t like to post a bunch of random stuff (like this) just to post. I only want to post something I’m at least moderately proud of (although I certainly have published posts I’m not crazy about in the past).

What I’m trying to say is that it takes time for me to write a good post and at the moment, I don’t have a lot of this “time.” If I could buy some at the store, or even online, I would. If there is a time store I am unaware of, please let me know. Also, if you are a blogger who would like to share their secrets on how you find the time to post, please do!

But don’t despair, I have no plans to abandon this blog. It’s just been a little tough lately. I think about you guys every day. In fact, I’m hoping to have a shiny new post for you next week.

And if there’s a subject you’d like me to write about, feel free to suggest it. But please don’t be offended if I don’t rise to the challenge. I need to feel I have something meaningful to contribute on the topic.

So there’s my update. Sorry so lame. I usually hate to post housekeeping-type stuff like this, but felt it was appropriate since I’ve been a little MIA.

For your viewing pleasure, please to check out this video about an old man who got a hot piece of tail. See? Relationships can come in all forms.

UPDATE: They have found that Maria is a Mario. That’s right, she’s a boy, and evidently, gay. Someone spotted him shaking a tail feather in a cage at Trunk’s in West Hollywood.

  1. Not lane at all! I’m with you on blogging with purpose, not ‘just’ to blog. And I’m glad you are with Tom still. We’re here, whenever you post!

  2. No one’s going to give you any good ideas?? How about a little help for us single girls… let’s say we meet a guy… amazing chemistry on date 1 but we don’t want it to fizzle out or to f*ck it up or whatever. Besides keeping your clothes on, whatcha got?

  3. I’m the same way – I hate posting for the sake of posting however, sometimes I feel the pressure to do so. I’d rather wait for inspiration to strike and write something I’m really proud of than just put something up (which I do sometimes too..)

    I’m am NOT one of those bloggers who can write a post in 1/2 an hour and be done with it. I find it takes a long time for me to write my posts & I extensively re-write and edit them before they go up. I always assumed that I was the only one like this. When I read other people’s posts I always think “Wow, this flows so amazing” and I always assume that it “just came out that way” (when really, this is probably not the case). It refreshing to hear that I am not the only one in this boat. I always think your posts are top notch so the time you put into them pays off! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you for the compliment, love. Yes, I think good bloggers spend a lot of time on their posts. Like you, I always think I take longer than most because I’m so neurotic. Hitting that “publish” button is always a little nerve-racking — I’m always thinking, should I have changed something else?

      I always find it tough to balance consistency with quality. If I blog more consistently, I may sacrifice quality. If I don’t post all the time, reader interest will drop off. Some blogging experts say, “just keep posting – you’re not always going to love what you post” – and it’s partly true. So I’m always challenged with juggling these two concepts and finding the right balance. Sometimes I’ll post something I don’t love, but I really try not to post something I feel is utter crap.

      Anyway, I’m glad someone can relate. For anyone considering starting a blog, realize that it is actually hard work and requires a lot of time and effort. But it’s also a lot of fun and can be very rewarding. Hell, I’m still here!
