Hmm. Well that went well.

You know, I've noticed an interesting pattern. Whenever I say in a post I'm going to be posting more often, I disappear for a while week month or more.

Now, I'm not going to claim I was too busy, cause there were definitely times during the last two months or more when I could've posted. And it's not like I suddenly didn't like blogging anymore either.

The truth is, it's not only the blog that kinda died for no apparent reason. My whole life kinda went 'bleh'. And I had no idea why! For the longest time I could not put my finger on why I wasn't the happiest and why I was getting so lazy with all my hobbies.

Well, about three weeks ago I figured it out (which of course was the time school decided to punch me in the stomach, pin my hands behind my back, sit on me, and laugh at my attempt to have a life).

The simplest way of putting it would to be to say I was bored, but that's not the real problem. I got lazy about life. I wanted good experiences and fun stuff to come my way all by themselves, and when they didn't (ha, life isn't that nice) I got pessimistic and thought things were hard. When in truth, I was just sitting around being a bum.

I'm not really sure what made me snap out of it, but I did. And then I yelled at myself. And then got in an argument with myself. And then I wasn't speaking to myself for a while. And then I wondered if I was insane, and decided to just get over it already.

So now I'm getting my rear back in gear, which means I'm crafting, writing, tripping over my own feet, mocking myself, making snarky comments, and most importantly for my followers, I'm blogging again. Now, notice I'm not saying I'm going to post more often, cause that never goes well. But I'm over my weird semi-mid-life/summer crisis thing I had going that was, in a word, lame.

To celebrate this, I redid the blog again. Out with the old ya know. Isn't it shiny?

On yet another note, I promise to stop being a lame follower, and read all your guys' amazing stuff again. And leave comments.
Uh, though I think this time I won't post a comment on every old post. Cause that would kinda eat my soul. And I don't think that'd be a fun experience.

Which brings me to the part I've been dreading about this post. I've decided that I follow too many blogs for me to keep up with. GAH! There's too much awesome! It's overwhelming.
So, I have to stop following some blogs. At first I thought it'd be easy 'I know! I'll just stop following the blogs that haven't updated for like 9 months'
But then I realized that wouldn't change how much ends up in my feed on a day to day basis. So, I have to stop following some really good blogs that update all the time. Erg! I don't want to do it, but if there's too much then I just get kinda scared of how much I have to read, and then I don't even get started on any of it.
Grrrr. I don't want to step on any toes, but I just can't read it all.
Hope no one gets offended or anything. Cause if I followed you in the first place, you're awesome.

Anyway! Have a virtual cookie to celebrate the revival of this curse upon sanity.

 And here's some cookies that will probably eat your soul or something, cause I'm a loving, wonderful person, who never does anything even remotely evil *snickers*
Seriously, run


  1. To the summer past I say both "bleh" and "good day sir."

    I will take one of your, non-scary, cookies and exchange it for this free pass to unfollow should you choose to. There's no expiration date, so you might want to hang onto it even if you decide to keep following. (You can always wave it menacingly when I get annoying.)

  2. Welcome back to bloggyland and thanks for the nice comment on my good news post. :D

    I hear ya on following blogs. I follow A LOT, like a lot. But I definitely don't get around to them all the time and I rarely comment these days because I'm scanning things in google reader. It makes me sad, but there is only so much time in the day.

  3. Unfortunately some days I have to forego blog reading or posting for real work (the kind that pays), it's not fun. I don't go back and read old posts, just catch up with the new. You gotta do what you gotta do.

    Where the heck did you find those scary clown cookies?? Talk about nightmares...


  4. Leo-Hahaha, did you just willingly give me blackmail material? That's funny.

    And I'm still a follower after I cleaned out a bunch of blogs :D

    Roni-Oi. If you somehow figure out a way to add an additional twelve hours to the day, be sure to share the secret.

    Spot-Ugh, I'm considering that. Just skimming all the old stuff is overwhelming. But I hate missing stuff! We'll see how much I can get done.

    Haha, and I found them on Google images. You'd be surprised at what shows up for 'clown cookies'
    (don't try it if you're sitting alone and possibly in the dark. It's frightening)
