Public Service Announcement:
The seasons are changing and a certain feeling is kicking around... you being the established blogging curmudgeon that you are, can't help but feel a bit jealous of the endless spunk of some of these blog spring-chickens.
Are you not posting to your blog everyday?
Are you feeling pissy about people posting a dish that you already blogged about 2months ago?
Perhaps it is time to go visit the Blog Depression Pamphlet at nonist:
"there is a growing epidemic in the cyberworld. a scourge which causes more suffering with each passing day. as blogging has exploded and, under the stewardship of the veterans, the form has matured more and more bloggers are finding themselves disillusioned, dissatisfied, taking long breaks, and in many cases simply closing up shop. this debilitating scourge ebbs and flows but there is hardly a blogger among us who has not felt it’s dark touch. we’re speaking, of course, about blog depression.
we here at the nonist have spoken before about the “blog life crisis" which is a natural part of any blog’s life-span. what we turn our attention to now, however, is the more insidious, prolonged strain of dissatisfaction which stays with a blogger, right below the surface, throughout a blog’s lifetime. the diligent and self aware blogger can resist this destructive undercurrent, make changes, adapt, rationalize, but for many, untreated, it can cause much needless suffering in the form of full fledged blog depression."
You are not alone. And we can help. Please make sure you don't push your blog out the window of a tall building.
Go bake some cookies and read this pamphlet.
