Lately I have noticed a certain ennui entering into my blogging efforts. It may be a delayed hangover from the A to Z Challenge or perhaps my blog is like a dog who was kind of cute and interesting as a puppy, but is now another chore and I can't be bothered to take it out for a walk.
Lately I have been feeling decadent. I would like to find a hookah bar to hang out in and smoke that big pipey thing but am out of luck round these parts. What alarms me the most is I'm starting to think Nero was not such a bad bloke and there is much to be said for hanging out in a toga eating grapes and drinking wine, fiddling while Rome burns. I think there was some sort of unfortunate mother issue going on with Nero, but we can gloss over that.
I'm noticing this blog fatigue with other bloggers too having just read the most recent post by my good bloggy pal Mina Lobo.
At this juncture some people will bang on about taking a blogging break which is cue for followers to react on mass: "Don't go. Don't leave me now, now, now," or something to that effect.
I'm not disappearing into blogging obscurity. My idea is delegation. Yes I am going to designate July as guest blogging month which means I'll be posting other people's stuff all month. Not every day. Just when I can be bothered.
I don't want this to entirely sound as if I want to use you and your writing because I'm feeling lazy. There's some great stuff out there and I intend to get into the showcasing business. I will already be showcasing one of Patricia Lynn's fabby posts on July the - errm I can't remember. Anyhow.
So comment here if you want to be showcased. Oh you know you want to. And chuck me an email closer to the time with your post and a pic of yourself or your favorite budgerigar - I don't care.
I'm also invoking the NBITW clause which translates as No Blog is To Weird; unless it's like sinister weird.
Sooo let me know if you want to join the party..
