Excuses

As someone who is coming up on her 10th Blog Anniversary (July 31), I’m doing a horseshit job of blogging lately. I’ve spent a moderate amount of time feeling guilty. But then last week Justin, who runs Minn Post’s Blog Cabin sent an e-mail saying that there’s been a 30% drop in submissions since summer began.

I feel much better. It’s not me, it’s the weather. Don’t you feel better now?

    Wait. Are you saying that when we’re blogging we’re supposed to be doing better than a horseshit job? Is not the beauty of the blogosphere the freedom from having to actually do it well?

    Pretty much. Otherwise, the horseshit blogger should just keep a diary.

    Besides, where did you get out of my post that I thought Jodi was doing a horseshit job?

    Basically I was just irritated with seeing reviews on those dumb graphic novels.

    Oh, got it. Jodi said she was doing a horseshit job. Didn’t see that before I posted.

    Justin, those graphic novels are not dumb! they’re super fun and I am waiting sweaty-palmed with anticipation for volume 6.

    And I’m not sure about writing a memoir, because who wants to read 300 pages of “I watched Dawson’s Creek (2002-2006) today, or I watched A Different World reruns (2006-2008) or I watched Roseanne reruns today (2010) and then I ate a cookie?”

    Hey, it’s how Chuck Klosterman makes his living. But you aren’t pretentious like him. Just sayin’, best of luck. You definitely have an audience.

    If I had a penis and beard, I’d probably be Chuck Klosterman. It might be why his writing bothers me so much.

    Maybe I should write a rock and roll memoir about all the imaginary bands I wanted to be in.

    Every time you mention the dearth of rock and roll memoirs written from a woman’s perspective, I think you should write one. Every time.

    Come to think of it, “If I Had a Penis and a Beard, I’d Probably Be Chuck Klosterman” would be an awesome title.

    David the reason I whine about the dearth and keep begging for a woman-penned rock & roll memoir is so I don’t have to write it.

    But I do kinda want to write a book called “If I had a Penis & a Beard, I’d Probably Be Chuck Klosterman.”
