I can’t find the link now, but some years ago John Scalzi, whose blog Whatever is one of the very few I read with any regularity, noted that there are likely a great many blogs with the following three posts on them:
- First post! I’m excited to be blogging and will talk about many fascinating things and stuff!
- Sorry I haven’t posted anything recently. I’ve been really busy, but I’m going to be blogging regularly now!
- (Months later) Here is a picture of my cat.
As I was just told this past weekend (by my husband), I have the attention span of a goldfish, so it seems best that I do all of these things in the same post. That way I can at least say that my blog is done.
So. The things I probably will not remember to blog about are cats, knitting, possibly videogames, and misc. I’m interested in more things than that, but those are the major categories. (Sorry, Mom/Dad/Sis/Spouse, the only people likely to read this, you go under “misc”.)
I’ve been meaning to do this for several years, so I got the procrastination/being too busy to blog over with already. Of course, there is an infinite supply of both procrastination and busy, which is why I’m taking care of that second post in the first one.
Here is a sample cat:
Yeah, that should do it.
