The Obligatory Comment on Non-Blogginess

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : May 14, 2006

I try to avoid commenting on blogging absences.  I get a bit irked when I go to a blog and find that they post about their lack of posting.  Either post, or don’t post–but don’t post about not posting!

Having reflected upon this phenomenon further, I realized that posting about not-posting offers the hope of a post-ful future.  When one posts about their lack of posting, they are effectively saying: "I would post more, but I’m busy or preoccupied or taking a blog-break.  But hold on, dear readers, for soon I will return to blogging.  Do not fear.  Do not forsake visiting me.  Do not take me off of your feed list or blog rolls.  I shall return."

My posting for the past month or so has been sporadic.  It has tended to lack substance.  And this trend will probably continue until I graduate in early June.  I have been very busy indeed and want to encourage you to hope for a better future.  Don’t take me from your blog rolls. Don’t remove me from your feed list.  Oh, I will continue to blog from time to time over the next month, but the trend of the past month or two will continue. 

My hope is that I will be able to focus more on bloggin in June.

    I’ve been meaning to comment on your blog lately, but just thought I would comment to say that I’m sorry I haven’t commented more.

Got something to say?
