I'm Swamped

"I've got my country's five hundredth anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder, and Guilder to frame for it. I'm swamped."  Prince Humperdinck

I have been meaning to post something but life keeps getting in the way.

Some people have written how an oversaturation of blogs in the past few years has really watered down the art of blogging.

Others have written how advertising and terms like "social media", "branding" and "click through rates" have soured blog readers.

Some people say that Twitter and Facebook are killing the medium of blogging.

Here are some of the blogs I read on a regular basis that I think prove the above statements to be incorrect or inacurate. Blogging is just evolving. Go check them out.

4 out of 5 Moms recommend Poop And Boogies. I never really liked that other Mom.

BEST QUOTE for this occasion ever!

I'm so excited about this. I feel like writing another apologetic post to explain why I have MIA just so I can use this quote. Thank you! (I mean, I am stealing it...)

Many years from now, we will be able to wear a blog that says,

The critics are dead. -- Blogging

OMG. I failed to notice the line with the name of my blog in it. Sorry. Thank you so much for the mention! I have no idea and I am deeply honored! Now off to steal your line as I promised. Or forewarned I mean...

Man do I hear you on that. I am not getting much done lately because work keeps getting in the way.

Thanks for the blog love.

I started a daddy blog a while back and finally am posting on a consistent basis. I agree with you that life sure does get in the way of blogging.
