Pet Peeve

I have never been a good journal writer. I know how it is to be on a roll and write every day for weeks and even months and then have a lapse for a year or more.

And so . . .
I don't know if this is really a fair thing to complain about. But since it is driving me crazy today, I will post.

When I first set up my blog I was disappointed that the address I wanted was already taken. It was even more discouraging when I realized the blog had been set up, posted one day, and never touched again. It was late at night when we came across the momenator idea. Kim and I thought it was kind of funny being a cross between a mom and a terminator.

I finally decided to look for a new blog address that suited us better and let's just say . . . a little more "cute." I had several really great ideas. They were all taken. But that's not the part that really bugs me. Most of those blogs had only been written in a few times and then vacated for years at a time. One hadn't been touched in over six years.

I do understand that sometimes things get put on the back burner. And I also realize that not everyone is semi-addicted to blogging like I am. But maybe they could just release there blog addresses back into the wild where caring bloggers would adopt and nurture them.

right on! Maybe you should let that irresponsible blog ghost with a comment on their dusty old post. What is the name on that post anyway?

The first one was LDSMom. Then I tried chocolate house, the chocolate house, a chocolate house, blessings, blessing, our blessing, count your blessings, we are blessed . . .

There are too many to remember. I tried a bunch of names. All my first picks were taken.

Some people have such great blog names. Mine is so dorky.
