Every once in a while I work my way down through my list of blogs on my site, mostly as an informal RSS feed to see what people are doing. Sometimes a site doesn’t update in a very long time and I think to myself, “hmmm, I wonder if I should drop that one if it really is defunct.”
Then recently I saw a blog post where the person hadn’t updated in a very long time. He said, “I’m sorry I haven’t updated in a while, but my seven year old daughter and my mother-in-law were killed in a car accident.”
Okay, first, you don’t have to apologize for that. Second, worst thing that could happen to a person? You have had it. The fact that you can even compose full sentences is more than what should reasonably be expected.
So now I think that once you’re on the roster, unless you devote your blog to something morally abhorrent, you get to stay there.
In other news, I’m messing about with “dipping” miniatures using wood varnish. Pics are forthcoming in the next few days.
