I've been a bit busy with my personal and professional life lately, so I haven't power blogged as usual.
Of course, I could write like some who treat their blog as a computer form of home movies. It usually goes something like this:
Guys, I'm sorry but I won't be blogging much today. I'll probably be out in the garden all morning planting petunias. Then I thought I'd run to the mall. I hear they have some great bargains so I might be there for a few hours. Then #1 son is over for dinner so I might make a pot of chili and throw a pie in the oven. So, sorry guys, you're on your own for today.
Oh my God! Blogger X is out in the garden! Blogger X is shopping! Blogger X won't blog today! How in the world are we going to get by today?? How will we survive. Oh, the pain, the pain!
Nothing wrong with that, of course. Everybody blogs about what they want to, but that's not my cup of tea. Personal experiences on the blogs, in my opinion, are fine if they segue to a larger point or theme. Otherwise, who the hell cares if you're tired or not in the mood or out gardening or won't blog for 24 hours because you're planning family dinner and # 8 daughter has volleyball practice or #5 son's acne has him all depressed.
I'll just say that the regular weekend features on This Just In are coming, including Week-ends and The Barking Lot Saturday.
Also, my announcement of a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel scorecard got some reaction this week and apparently touched some nerves. I'll have my reaction and then I will continue my scorecard on Sunday along with My Most Popular Blogs, Culinary no-no, and Photos of the Week.
And don't forget Recommended Reading. I can't blog all day every day like some, so I like to pass on some good stuff that I couldn't get to during the week.
That's what's coming up. No long, boring, who the hell cares explanation why I haven't blogged much the past 48 hours.
And thanks for stopping by.
