Blogging Without Obligation

AHA! It's come full circle! Millions of people have blogs. And how many of those people are chained to their blogs for some portion of time everyday because they feel they HAVE to blog?And when they don't blog for a while, their first blog posting after a hiatus is an apology for not blogging.

I know for myself that if I feel I HAVE to do ANYTHING (except work to pay the bills and feed my craft addiction), I'm likely not to do it. And for HEAVEN'S SAKE, people, don't we all have enough we HAVE to do to not need to add blogging to the list?? I don't even have children (well, unless you count my spousal unit and two cats) and I have enough obligations to not need to add anything else.

Besides, I'm going to be 50 this year and as much as possible, I'm not going to do things I just freakin' don't wanna do!

So, bloggers, the question of to blog or not to blog, should not be a gut wrenching question. Do it if you want or don't do it if you don't. And you don't have to even be 50 to decide not to blog! I give you permission :)
