Rantarooney: BLOGGERS


Attention, Bloggers!

Everyone in cyberspace will be indebted to you for observing the following small behavioral modification:



DO NOT BEGIN YOUR POST WITH AN APOLOGY!

WE DO NOT CARE THAT YOU MEANT TO POST YESTERDAY / THIS MORNING / "MORE OFTEN", AND DIDN'T BECAUSE SOMETHING CAME UP / YOU WERE UNMOTIVATED / YOUR LEFT BIG TOE HURT.

IF WE STOP BY AND YOU HAVEN'T POSTED SINCE LAST TIME, GUESS WHAT: WE DEAL WITH IT.

WE WANT THOUGHT-PROVOKING, ENTERTAINING, RELEVANT CONTENT, NOT BORING EXCUSES. PLEASE DON'T WASTE OUR TIME.

Exceptionat Cases:
- When a blogger anticipates being away for a specific period of time (whether days/weeks/months) and shares what that time frame will be - in which case, apologies still aren't required as this information is shared upfront,
- When health/natural catastrophes strike - in which case, apologies still aren't required as a brief explanation (at whatever point is feasible for the blogger) will fully suffice as all readers will understand and sympathize,
-When there has been a extended unexplained absence and the blogger returns - in which case, apologies still aren't required (unless content had been promised and not delivered) as a simple "I'm back!" will do.
