I’ve been fighting the fucking flu and scrambling to get all my ducks in a tight little row over at Top Shelf Copy so much lately that I’ve been getting behind on blog writing. I know, it seems hard to believe. I nearly missed this post! But, that’s the thing… sometimes life gets in the way, and that’s just the way it goes.
Sometimes, there’s not enough of us, not enough hours in the day, not enough days in the week, not enough weeks in the year. That doesn’t mean we abandon those efforts, though. It means we come back even more determined. So what if you missed a post for your blog? WHO THE HELL GIVES A SHIT? One little post isn’t anything — except a call for help, just like your drinking and chain smoking.
You can miss one post and then miss two posts and then miss three posts and come out with big problems, little traffic and a totally fucked up ranking plan for your site, or you can brush your bloated, exhausted self off and go again. And going again is what I’m all about. I don’t care if it’s a the fucking Tilt-A-Whirl at the local traveling county fair or fixing my blog after I’ve fucked up. I go again.
And you know what I’ve found? Going again is almost like not missing a post at all, as long as you don’t do it too often. It’s a slight hiccup, nothing more (except on the Tilt-A-Whirl, which might be a LOT more than a hiccup… *urp*). Missing a post just means you need to put more effort into your blog, or that you need to hire someone else who can. Either way, don’t sweat it — just move ahead and pretend like you didn’t just fall off the fucking horse.
