QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE

It’s another—tah tah tah…
“If I were Queen of the universe” post!
So...If I were Queen of the universe I would…
Declare today and forever more…
That there be a no more guilt for bloggers…
About why you haven’t posted for a while.
Every week on someone’ s blog I read…
Where they apologize for not blogging.
Hey! Life happens…
There will be days and weeks…
That blogging is just not—cannot be the priority.
So I say, It’s OK that you miss posting…
You don’t have to apologize…
We other blogers understand.
OK, I say this BUT…if I haven’t posted in a month…
You might want to get the cadaver dogs sniffing my place
To make sure I’m OK.
But really all you, me and us writers…
NO GUILT…
If you don’t post when you said you were gonna…
It’s OK. OK?
Blogging has to be fun, right?
As if writing, editing, marketing isn’t stressful enough…
We don’t need to add more to our plate…
Unless we have time, and find it satisfying.
And seriously,
I don’t know how most of ya’ll bloggers do it anyways…
On your blogs you have contests, guest authors…
Book reviews, query critiques blogfests, and graphics to boot!
I applaud you. I’m in awe of you…
But I’m not like you.
Because as you can see…
I just blather what’s up in my head
And hope it entertains.
Because first and foremost…I am a storyteller…
Everyday I hiccup a story. That’s all I do.
So, I’ll Ieave the more sophisticated blogs…
To the rest of you creative folks.
Who do a waaaaay better job than I ever could.
And I say all this because I’m off on another working vacation...
And my blog posts may be sporadic—doh! Se? I’m doing it too.
Hey, see you soon...
And I will be checking your blog posts. 

Always, Em-Musing
