A Blog is Not a Life

Guilty! I offer no excuse, I have heard myself say it in various forms.

"I mentioned this in my blog."

"I have a post about that in my blog queue."

"I told this story awhile back on my blog."

I do sincerely apologize for any truncated or abandoned conversations that have sprung from my egomaniacal references to one tiny cul de sac on this infrequently traveled cyber street. Blogging like nearly every other endeavor in life has some positives and some of those other things. One of those negative qualities is the author's belief that everyone they know in the real world reads their blog and retains the essential and life altering insights the blogger believes were conveyed therein.

We really are all brilliant in our own minds. Sometimes that attitude leaks out through the keyboard.

Sorry, it will probably happen again.

A less than avid reader wrote to say they had been broken up with in a blog post. Now that's cruel. I got dumped in an email but on a blog! How rude.

hahaha - I totally thought that cartoon twice today. Once when my mom sent me a link, that if she read my blog she would find that I didn't need her link, and second when someone was surprised about some info I posted on the blog a week ago!

Fun post Tim. I read it.

Hmmm... (Tim) I've heard you say "Ah, well, if you read my blog..." in a nice it's-a-conincidence tone and not a you-don't-pay-attention (etc) tone. It doesn't bother me.
