Why I didn't

I've had a couple of blogosphere friends ask why I didn't sign up for NaBloPoMo, so I figured that if there's even the slightest interest in that subject, I'd turn my answer into a blog post. Quite simply, I didn't sign up for it because I know I wouldn't be able to honor it. Because I spend most of my work days chained to a computer, I rarely sit down and use one on weekends, and on the rare occasions that I do, blog posts are simply not on my agenda. But I could force myself and sit down and post every fucking day. OK. But I also happen to know that before the month is out, there will be several days when I will not have access to a computer at all. Besides, this is supposed to be for, like, fun, and I don't want it to turn into a J.O.B. So, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    This is my story too. We travel for Thanksgiving to the Land of No Internet Access and it just would NOT happen. And I don't care enough to try. It does seem very daunting and stressful to the people who have signed on, they seem overwhelmed already!!!

    Okay, got to ask, what's the acronym J.O.B.? You know I gotta ask, I'mma guy.

    "Just Over Broke"
    "Jami's Only Bored"

    I know I post pretty often, but I do it because I want to and not because I have to. I wouldn't sign up and have to do it. That seems like it would take all the fun out of it.

    So I say post when you feel it and don't when you don't and most of all, don't feel bad at all about it!


    LOL at Just Over Broke

    My life is too smooth lately, I need something to bitch about so that's why I signed up *wink*

    I signed up because I'm already almost posting daily so why not make it "official".

    But for the record I did not bug you to join up! I figured folks would do it on their own.

    Plus I got a cool button using my photos. I'm too lazy to figure out how to make one of my own.

    I'm with you. And as Weekends Off says, there's just no fun in *having* to doing something. Even sex.

    At least until you get warmed up!

    Yeah, once I'm warmed up good, I'll often post a bunch of times.

    I agree. I'm in such a state of mind lately that I can't handle any type of obligation. Between that and being a Taurus, I ain't signing up for nothin.

    you are so right.

    I concur. No way I could/would do it.
