Latest info

Forgive me Father since it has been at least two weeks since my last post. A confession might be appropriate in this circumstance I suppose, if I was Catholic and if anyone truly cared. Well, I'm not Catholic, and based on my page imprints and significant increase in followers in the past few months (NOT!), I'm thinking the latter is a true statement as well.

I just don't have a shtick that causes a stampede back to my blog hour after hour, day after day. To become a super blogger, you have to have some kind of hook. I'm not a fantastic writer. I don't tell funny jokes. I'm not interested in biking. I'm not female. I'm not an academic. I don't live anywhere special.

Yes, I do have triplets and am an at-home dad, but with the proliferation of fertility drugs and the massive rise in unemployment especially among American men, this just isn't news anymore. I could dive into the debate as to whether Lady Gaga is really a man or perhaps even a hermaphrodite. Maybe I could open up a forum on universal healthcare, family budgeting or the problem with today's youth? Would you like to hear my opinions? It's like I know a little about a lot of topics, but not enough to stir a thoughtful debate.

I could revisit the career that I gave up on way too early. One that I never took too seriously. One that I was pretty damn good at doing. One that is now a distant memory.....

So this is where I am today. The kids have been in school almost three weeks. Mom MD and I are going to NYC for a week very soon, but I'm fearful of that H1N1 flu that seems to be heading in our direction. I'm tired of both the democrats and the republicans.

Actually, life is pretty darn good. I can't complain or maybe I just did. Sorry, the next post will be more upbeat.

I can't help it, but every time I see the H1N1 virus in writing, I think The "Hiney" virus.

You can explore that one for your next post perhaps. . . no charge. . .

I feel the same way some days, RD.

You aren't a female? Where did I get that thought from?

Beth said...

LOL at Mom on Spin. Hiney virus is the best name yet!

Beth said...

And glad to have you back. Have fun in NY.

Even the hook loses it's appeal after awhile. I like blogs that ramble on about the varieties of life. The this and the that. And you capture this nicely.

but I do understand the writer's funk. BTDT, recently in fact : )

I am in a funk with blogging, but eh, it happens.

You don't have to be a super blogger and you don't have to do it for any one other than yourself. That, I think, is what it's all about. Hope y'all avoid that flu!

You don't have to be incredibly profound or have something ground-breaking everytime you check in, so to speak. (I know I don't!) We still like to hear what you're up to and how the fam is faring. That's why I'll keep comin' back, anyway. I'm enjoying 'getting to know' people in the virtual sense. Makes me feel a little more connected, you know?
