Alert the Media

You guys, I have kind of a big announcement to make. This comes after days of whining about it to anyone would listen/got stuck in the elevator with me. Needless to say, I did not come to this crazy decision on a whim. So, without further ado, I just want to let you all know that I will no longer be writing this blog...

Wait! You didn't let me finish!

I will no longer be writing this blog 5 days a week every single week. I mean, it's kind of a crazy amount of times to blog anyways! That's what, like 260 posts a year? What!? Whose big idea was THAT? (Oh, it was mine? Who left me in charge of THAT decision?!)

See, here's my thinking. For the past several weeks, I have put out a couple garbage posts. Rather than put out some lame-o post about how I am tired and don't want to write a post and then write a post the next day apologizing for said garbage post, I need to give myself a break and maybe not waste the Internet space. (There IS a finite amount of Internet, right? Yeah, I think I'm understanding that correctly.) You know what I mean?

So after more than 2 years of writing 5 times every stinkin' week, I'm officially cutting myself some slack with the ol' schedule. I'm sure I'll end up writing between 3 and 5 times on most weeks, but when I've literally got nothing on my mind and no brain power to drum up an insult to hurl towards Kim and Kanye's unborn baby, I'm just gonna skip it.

I'm also seriously affected by living alone and having Geo in Alabummer. Contrary to popular belief, I am not nearly as good of a time on my own as when I have the company of friends and a fiance to make fun of. The material has, admittedly, suffered a bit.

Anyway, I've made the decision to not be such a ballbuster when it comes to getting a post up 5 times a week at all costs (I need to save some up for wedding planning) . I love the feeling of writing a post that I am proud of and want to share and - more importantly - that OTHER people want to share. And quite frankly, that just doesn't happen every single night. So rather than waste your time and - more importantly - my time, I'd rather just do what I did for my Logic and Reasoning class in college and skip it.

I know many of you readers (who are by FAR my favorites) check in to the blog every day. But more often than not, even my so-called friends and family members go several days without reading. Jerks. So I'll apologize to my most devoted readers in advance for the nights that I just don't get something up. But I am planning that when there ARE posts, they will be of a much higher quality, with either more or less poop jokes, depending on the topic.

I don't know if you can tell or not, but I'm trying to convince myself more than anyone that this is the best move. I adore this blog am so embarrassingly proud of it that it will be hard to roll it back a bit. But I just kind of need to so that I stay focused on the quality over the quantity.

So what do you think, do you understand where I'm coming from? Do you hate me? Are you mad? Will you ever forgive me? Aren't' you impressed that I did the math to figure out roughly how many blogs I write a year?
