As a Rule, I Make a Blog Post

I was wondering whether to address the three days I missed recently, a rather unbecoming performance for one who aims to be a daily blogger. One school of thought goes, least said, soonest mended. This is, of course, a school of thought I rarely follow. When have I ever said the least? I always talk too much!

Additionally, I have several times proved that even when sick, I can usually manage a word or two. They are usually whiny words about how I cannot possibly make a blog post that day, but let us not dwell on such unflattering reflections. However, it seems to prove that I CHOOSE whether or not to post.

Therefore, it seems I cannot excuse my non blogging days by saying, “I couldn’t post, I was sick!” Apparently I could have posted. I CHOSE not to. I say, that is perfectly fine with me. I CHOSE not to post, because I felt ill and chose to take care of myself.

There is a school of thought that says we writers must write no matter what. If we take a day off due to ill health or whatever reason, we are not real writers.

Who makes up these rules? Who arbitrates that we must follow? I do not know. In any case, I am over 200 words. As regular readers know, I call that respectable. That is by my rules for me. I would be interested to hear comments about what others think about my (and other) rules, as well as what rules they follow for themselves.

  1. I am trying to get back into blogging daily minus Sundays. Hey, even God rested then. But, if I am sick or extremely busy, I am not going to stress over it. Although, good to have a schedule; I enjoy blogging and don’t want it to become an obligation or chore.

  2. I make my own rules! Stupid internet doesn’t control me! 😊
