I am a major slacker and here are a few reasons why I suck ..

I have not been a very good blogger lately. I am so caught up in reading other people's shit, that I can't seem to write anything myself. That being said, I need to start carrying around a little notepad, because every single day something comes up that I can/should write about, but when I get home or get the chance, it all eludes me.

Then, of course, I could blog about the Zanester (GWLH) almost every day, but who wants to read that drivel day after day? (I'm sure you wouldn't mind, Mom) Although I must mention that his dinner request tonight was awesome: 1 pizza roll and 13 chicken fries.

Not to mention, a few months back, Holly, ran a "pay it forward" post/contest that I was one of the winners of, and I have yet to pay it forward. I really need to get my shit together.

If certain people weren't so damn entertaining, I could write something worthwhile. Not to mention I am also addicted to stupid awesome sites like Icanhazcheeseburger, failblog, passiveaggresivenotes, postsecret, cakewrecks, lovelylisting, dlisted, commonties, yousuckatcraigslist, whywomenhatemen, etc.

And then there is the following:

Sam just had a baby and her effing site crashed in the middle of everything.

Momofali's son just had surgery.

Mistressmom is going through some inner turmoil.

Of course there is FADKOG who is my hero.

And then, Bejewell who lost her beloved Simon and is at a loss for words, which brought me full circle to this

For some reason lately, I can't stop reading about other people's lives and still write about mine.

And finally, I tend to find myself much more clever when posting comments on someone else's blog than when I am writing my own post- so I guess I need to find my skin. (what the hell does that mean? GAH)

Bear/Bare(?) with me people, I know you are out there.....I will come back with something good. Please don't ditch me now!

What gives you writer's block? What makes your brain stop working, besides beer or illicit drugs? Who do you read that will inspire me or make me stop blogging altogether? I want to know....

Aww! Thanks for saying that!

And now worries. Everybody is busy, and it's hard to just find time to do anything, let alone sit down and pop a few lines off. When you're around, we're around!

In all due respect FADKOG, you never just "pull a few lines off", your posts are effing awesome and L-O-N-G, and did I mention, awesome?

Thanks for being an LWM lover, together we can make things right in the world

Well, I don't think you're slack or sucky - just a bit busy maybe? What with the small child and all that. And you're right, there's a whole lot of internet out there to read before you even think of writing your own post! I'll be stalking you, sorry, I meant to say waiting for you.

Don't you dare stop blogging altogether! Try the note pad thing. I have had the same problem...getting a great idea when I'm at the grocery store, and by the time I sit down to post I can't remember a thing. When I really have writer's block, I touch on a theme that everyone can relate to. Most recently, that was my music post. See? Now everyone knows my dirty little secret!
