Keeping Up the Good Work

It’s been nearly three months since I’ve posted anything on this blog. For two and a half of those months, I thought no one cared. Actually, I thought no one noticed. That two-and-a-half months of no posts almost turned into forever of no posts. Then I went to a party. Well, not a party so much as a wedding but it was also a party. A party where someone got married. At that party were many of the people who read this very blog. It also happens that many of those people are not people I get to see regularly in real life. I was happy to get to see those people. (You know who you are.) And then something weird happened.

People started talking to me about this blog. I did not prompt them. In fact, it didn’t even occur to me that they even read this blog. They brought it up themselves. They talked about my Dad’s Art Review videos. They talked about some of their favorite posts. They talked about the blog in general and how I should “keep up the good work.” 

It’s that last comment that really got me. “Keep up the good work.” He said it like I was about to post something new any second. Which I wasn’t, of course. I hadn’t tried to write something for the blog in over two months. I had basically given up. I was definitely not keeping up the good work. He reminded me that I missed writing for this blog. That the extra effort it takes to come up with something for this site is worth it. Not because people say nice things to me about it but because it’s good for me to get this ridiculous stuff out of my head for others to read.

I won’t tell you that I’m going back to a regular posting schedule because I’ve proven that I can only sustain that for so long before I disappear for three months. I will try to get something posted to this blog at least once a week. Hell, maybe I’ll even jump back in to reviewing terrible reality shows. Who knows?

Anyway, thanks for reading and thanks for saying kind things about this blog without being prompted.
