Yes, I finally bowed to peer pressure and joined this year’s A-Z challenge! I’ve been hesitating because my two year blogoversary is coming up and I’m concerned the blog and I are losing passion for one another. Lately I've found it hard just to make our Mon/Wed/Fri rendez-vous. And then the Blog is all like: ‘You never make time for me anymore! Don’t you remember how it was when we first met? The blissful hours we spent building our platform together?’
And I’m like: ‘I know, honey. I’m sorry but you know real life has been busy…’
Blog: ‘That’s what you always say! Just admit it. There’s someone else, isn’t there?’
Me: ‘No, bloggy boo, I swear! I haven’t written a full chapter in months!’
Blog: ‘Ha! I’ve seen the way you’ve been ogling that word doc. And don’t get me started on your reading list. Didn’t think I knew about that- did you? Don’t forget- I do have access to your email account. I’m not a total moron. Everything comes before ME, doesn’t it? DOESN’T IT?!!’
Me: ‘Yikes, jeez! Okay, fine. How about I sign us up for a couples retreat? It’s called the A-Z challenge. Just you and me- no pressure, no themes besides a letter of the alphabet and I’ll be posting every day! – except Sunday’s. What do you think?’
Blog: *sighs* ‘You really mean it?’
**give eachother Googley eyes**
