Well it was bound to happen eventually. I like the blogs I follow, go figure. I enjoy reading others’ comments or responses to my comments. That’s natural, right? But I suppose I shouldn’t have gotten so comfortable doing it on my phone while sitting next to JD.
Yesterday I shared a post from the blog dearlilyjune which I follow and I was reviewing and clearing the likes when JD asked what I was doing. Well I fibbed slightly, and said I was reading comments on a blog post. I say “fibbed” mainly because I didn’t say it was my blog post, and if you want to get technical I guess it wasn’t a fib at all. All I did was share it, I didn’t write it. Way to justify a fib Janey!
Anyway, it isn’t the first time I’ve used that response when in actuality I’ve been reading comments on my own posts. This time however, JD trumped my fib and said that since I liked reading other people’s blogs so much why didn’t I write one of my own?
Falling back on an old excuse, I claimed I just didn’t have the time to write a blog. JD pointed out I could spare five or ten minutes on the train in the morning (WTF? Is he spying on me?) or after work before dinner. Then, because I had a feeling this wasn’t going to be the last I heard of it, I admitted I had started a blog some time ago, but that it was now gathering cobwebs due to the aforementioned lack of time. I remarked that perhaps I could dig up the log in information and check out where I’d left it and possibly fire it up again.
I’m not sure whether I will revisit my old stomping grounds but if I do I’ll have to sanitize the existing posts so there’s nothing offensive or too revealing of family. Because you know if he realizes I’m blogging he’s going to take credit for it and want to read it.
It would be an interesting challenge to see whether I can keep two blogs afloat.
