Don't do it!

They say you shouldn’t post if you have nothing to say.

But what if all you have to say is “sorry, can’t be arsed”?

And what if your own conscience meant that, despite not having much to say, you felt you had to post just to let people know that they don’t need to worry, I’m fine, everybody is fine and nothing of real note has happened.

Although that last bit is a complete lie and should read “nothing that I’m going to blog about has happened”.

Maybe the guilt behind not posting is enough to force a post into life, the feeling that people are visiting and thinking “Ohh.. still not posted, maybe he’s bored”.

Or maybe it’s my guilt about other things that is stopping me focus, outstanding projects, commitments missed and so on?

Blimey, it’s a complicated business, least of all when such “meta” posts aren’t always looked on favourably. Rightly so mind you, they can be hugely boring and tediously dull, yet somehow they remain the crux of things around here.

Why blog? Why NOT blog? When NOT to blog? WHY not to blog? WHO not to blog about? and so on and on and on…

Taking all that into consideration, should I still not post anything?

Yours confusedly.
