So, I’m a suckish blogger. The single most annoying thing for me is a blog that sits idle. Actually, that’s not true; there a million MORE annoying things than an idle blog, but non-blogging is my topic today. I’ll get to Republicans, menstrual cramps, and parking tickets tomorrow. Or, you know, I would if I blogged regularly.
I can’t figure out what my problem is. I like blogging. I mean, I really, really like it. But, once I’m signed in as the admin of Karan A GoGo, I freeze up or something. Maybe I just have nothing to say. Where does one go after Ode to a Nice Rack, after all?
Sure, I could bitch about men, aging, or parenting (although- see my Mommyhood blog for that). But, that’s just gets so boring. I want to write something fun. Something different.
My friend, Johnny- who lives in New Zealand, you know? He used to write a series on his blog about every concert he’d ever attended, starting back in 1970-something. I LOVED reading those entries. They were original and unique (because, of course, we weren’t there with him), but also universal (because- duh- I’ve been to concerts). But, then one terrible day, the site Johnny (and I) had been blogging at was murdered and, after that, Johnny never wrote any more of that series. See? That’s the thing with blogs: sometimes they just go away. And that makes me sad. (Especially about the concerts because he was just getting to the part where he met me and we went to concerts together and I was hoping his posts would recreate events that I had blacked out as a result of drinking too much beer in the mosh pits. His blog was my blackout loophole, if you will.)
Anyway, that’s not the way I want Karan a GoGo to go (go?) out. I miss it here. Therefore, in order to reestablish some kind of healthy blogging habit, I’m challenging myself to a 30-day blogathon.
Hear ye, hear ye:
I will post something to Karan A GoGo everyday for a month or I will- I will… Wait. Let me think…
I could shave my head a la Britney.
Or, my eyebrows like Bob Geldof in the Wall? But, I’m too afraid I’d end up looking like my 7th grade home ec teacher if I did that.
What if I were to enlist the videographers at WestVirginiaVille to feature a webcast of me singing Country Roads from the steps of the WV State Capitol, wrapped only in the State flag, should I fail to update daily?
Yep, I think that’s the answer. It’s a win-win. It would be attention-getting, which- of course- I like. (Plus, maybe it’s even illegal to do that! That would be awesome!) And, you’d get to hear me sing! (And by “you”, I mean you, Evil Twin’s Wife!)
Don’t worry, you’ll never have to see it, though. As God is my witness, I will never not blog again!!
See y’all tomorrow!
