warning: whining ahead

I've read on several blogs in the past couple of weeks people posting about other bloggers who waste time blogging about how they have nothing to blog about. Let this serve as your warning.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ MY WHINING ABOUT HAVING NOTHING TO BLOG ABOUT...
STOP READING NOW!!!

Okay, for those (if any) that are still reading, pull up a seat and listen to me whine. I don't know why it's so hard some days to actually sit down and write something. It's been almost two weeks since I've said anything out here. Maybe it's because ever since I went back to work and spend virtually the entire day sitting in front of a computer I have absolutely no desire to come home and park my ass in front of another one? Or it could be that it's summer and there's so much more to do to keep the house and yards up so I'm spending more time outside instead of feeling my brain rotting staring at the monitor? And then there's been the yearly visitation from The Rents that's kept me doing other stuff and having to socialize, whether I wanted to or not. Whatever the case, they all add up to the same result. No blogging.

Yet, even if I had (or made) the time to blog these days, what in the hell would I say? I don't want to talk about my job because frankly, it'd be boring. I can't talk about certain issues I'm currently dealing with because it wouldn't be prudent. And since I live a pretty mundane existence of work, kid time, house shit, yard work, and whatever other crap comes my way that doesn't leave much to say.

So, maybe if I ask all of you to give me something to write about it will get the mojo moving in my brain again. Go ahead. Make a suggestion. Ask me a question. Anything will do. Just get me writing again, dammit. It's been too long.

Blogging about funny things from the past is always interesting: first date, grammar school bullies, episodes of embarrassment in high school, etc.

Another possiblity is to just take a break. So many bloggers feel so compelled to write. Do we eat when we're not hungry? Drink when we're not thirsty? So why do we feel so obligated to write when we don't feel like it?

Who are these crankypants bloggers who write about other bloggers? They need to get a life already.

Hey, it's your blog, YOUR RULES. If you want to write about not having anything to say, then go right ahead. I do it all the time. I also do memes and surveys when I have nothing to say. Those help too.

People like that are like assholes. Everyone has one but some are much more mangled than others....

Hmm how about starting a campaign against that nasty neighbor and her evil spawn? It could be your summer project! ;)
