Blog U Lark
According to my Bloggo MacBlogg’s Bloggerly Guide to Blogging, serious bloggers are recommended to post to their blogs at least once every 47 seconds in order to maintain follower loyalty.
Over the years, I’ve tried to stick to a regular schedule, but the subtle relationship between input and output defies all strategic planning — much like the digestive habits of a man fed random meals ranging from the fibre-rich to the almost liquid and seriously fruity who braves the loo each day uncertain as to whether he’s a ‘pre-constipation cowboy’ or an ‘astronaut of impossible gastric splash about to blast off into the Diarrhoeaosphere’.
I’m taking in a curious blend of stimuli right now. Some, I’ve chosen, while others have been thrust upon me like invading Mongol hordes, and as my brain does that brain-specific trick of hooking things together and making links when previously there were none, I can only mutter as an exasperated monk woken from untimely slumber during afternoon prayers when it comes to being Schedule King — or even Schedule Mule Slave #254.
It’s a good job I’m not running the buses or organising Vladimir Putin’s kickboxing weekends. Those things are best left to the experts.
To correct the sloppiness of my posting schedule I’m inviting post topics in the comments trail. If there’s a choice, I’ll pick my favourite and post next week; if there’s just one suggestion then I’ll go with that (in a “Hi, Captain, they call me Bones — and I’ll be the only ship’s doctor on board this vessel for the next kazillion TV ‘n’ movie years...” kind of a way). If there are no choices, I’ll HURT A KITTEN.
So go ahead, slay me...
