I have a few pet peeves when it comes to bloggers. Therefore, in this blog, I am going to masterfully avoid those things that bug me in other writers. In announcing them I will either make myself accountable or air my hypocrisy. Probably the latter.
In any event there are a few principles that I will try adhere to:
1. I will not tease you with blog posts that I never write. I've noticed that bloggers who write things like--"I'm running behind on everything in my life but I promise to blog about THIS SUPER-AWESOME THING that you're really interested in" rarely ever follow-up on the super awesome things that they promised. So I make you no promises, tell you no lies, and hope that you keep reading anyway.
2. I will not drop off the face of the universe without an announcement. If I find myself going more than a week without a post, I will try to let the world know what happened. Because we can all think of a blog we read that has gone underground, almost as though the writer had a life or something. Or was drafted into a top-secret CIA mission. I promise to avoid all CIA covert-affairs agents, no matter how hard they woo me and my ninja skills.
3. I promise to post absolutely no picture of my pets. And no bad poetry. Wait, I can already feel my resolution cracking on the poetry...
