Knock Knock, Is Anyone There?
I’ve never really been a big blog checker. In fact, Kiersten White’s blog was the first one I started checking every day. And even that was only after I sold PARANORMALCY.
But so I immediately “followed” her blog. And then I waited for some message from the universe–or at least the blogosphere–to alert me each time she had a new post. But they didn’t come. I actually still don’t get what that means, but whatever.
Anyway, I got into the habit of going to check Kiersten’s blog every day. Now Kiersten is living life 3 hours earlier than I am. However, thanks to the fact that she is much more of a morning person than I am (or hides it way better), by the time I got sufficiently coffeed up to see straight, I could click on her blog, and there was often a new post.
Oh, the joy!
But then there were the dark days. Those were the days when I would go to the blog and there was no new post yet. And I’d check back in an hour. Then maybe an hour later. Then maybe half an hour later. Then maybe every 10 or 15 minutes until I’d call, frantic, “ARE YOU STILL ALIVE?!?!?!”
OK, fine that was only once, but still, it was very scary.
OK, fine it was twice.
So what’s my point? There really isn’t one. There’s just kind of a weird admission coming.
So I keep checking my own blog to see if there’s a new post, but of course there never is. I mean, unless I’ve written one. You’d think I would know that, seeing as how (like I just said) I’m the one who writes the posts and all, but I guess the newness hasn’t worn off yet, and I think hey, I have a blog! Let me just check it and see if there’s a new post. But then of course there isn’t, and then I get sort of depressed.
I think I need a new hobby.
So this post is just going to go up with a whisper. This is just for those of you who come check my blog, just to see if there’s a new post, even though I haven’t tweeted anything or screamed it from the rooftops. This post is for you.
And guess what, you’re the first ones to know that the shibumi tsunami is building this weekend. Definitely check in next week, even if you’re not checking this right now.
Although I guess how would you know to check this then if you’re not reading this now. Wow, that was deep, wasn’t it?
Tell me a knock knock joke in the comments. My kids only know 2 and they’re driving me crazy. Thanks.
