10 Reasons Why I Did Not Update My Blog Lately

Posted by : foongpc | Saturday, June 19, 2010 | Published in


I have not been updating my blog for almost a week now. You must be wondering why I was MIA (Missing In Action)! Well, let me tell you why....

1. I was busy watching the World Cup. I am not a huge football fan, mind you, but it was a once-in-four-years thingy and I just could not NOT be a part of it! I just realised the World Cup provided me with the BEST excuse for just about anything this month! Maybe they should have the World Cup every year! LOL!

2. When I was not watching World Cup, I was busy watching my favourite TVB drama serials. Seriously, why would anyone bother to watch Korean and Japanese shows? Hong Kong TVB dramas are the best in terms of plot-lines and acting! Well, to me anyway! haha!

3. When I was not watching my favourite TVB dramas, I was busy tweeting. Since I am not good at multi-tasking, don't expect me to blog and tweet at the same time! LOL! Well, tweeting is pretty addictive and I just got sucked into this whole Twitter phenomenon!

4. I was tired of waiting for my photos to upload. Now you know why this post have no photos!

5. I was busy working hard to earn money. You know right, the Government is going to do away with the subsidies and petrol price will be increasing soon, and we all know everything else will automatically be more costly once petrol price increases! How to survive if I don't work my panda ass off?

6. I was busy helping my mom wrap and steam those bak chang (glutinous rice dumplings). They were so yummy! Can you blame me for helping my mom make bak chang and not update my blog?

7. I was not in the mood to blog. Although I love blogging, I, like any normal bloggers, still have my off days. So gimme a break, will ya?

8. I wanted to know how it feels like not blogging for a week. Well, I wanted to experiment a little and see how it feels like not blogging for an entire week. Of course, I failed, because before the week was over, I had already resumed blogging. Damn!! Guess I would never ever stop blogging for good! Hmmm, wonder if this is good or bad news?

9. I was busy reading your blog. Yeah right! I can just hear you say that. Haha! But look, just because I did not leave any comments in your blog, that does not mean I did not read your blog or at least glanced through it. Well, I think I did admire some of the photos you took or at least downloaded from the Internet : )

10. I attended Bloggers Anonymous (something along the lines of Alcoholics Anonymous) and it seemed to be working!! Until now, that is....haha!

So there you are - my 10 reasons why I did not update my blog lately! What about you? Do you have off days in blogging? Have you ever thought of quitting blogging and leading normal lives again?

    I've been blogging less and less due to being pre-occupied with other stuff.

    Not only that, my laptop is sooo slow in processing that it takes ages to do stuff.. *sigh*...

    Anyway, no worries. I've not visited your blog in a long while as well.. :(

    Keep on blogging.. at your own pace. ;-)

    Whoa! You sure are busy my friend.

    For me, I only have off days when my office send me to fieldworks. During normal days, I keep on blogging. Though, sometime my busy sched makes me post late.

    I am not stopping blogging for now. I am just starting.

    Missing In Action- you have rightly described the cause. This is not the problem with you; I am also facing the same problem. This is not a great issue instead enjoy the game. Bye.

    If you are done with your ten reasons then would you mind updating your blog right now so that people like us get something relevant to read and comment.

    All the time you are busy in you life. watching drama, tweeting, help to mom, earn money etc but not update the blog. ooooo! its not good. you must bring some spare time for your blog latest after 15 days. Because all we love your blog.

    According to your post you are busy enough and you did not have time for your blog. So there are many people who did not update their websites or blogs and i am also one of them. my website is about Winnipeg Web Design. but i am also very busy like you. I try to update my website once in month.

    Time is very precious and limited in the life. And we want to do everything but its not possible. If we do one work or task then how can we do other work at the same time. Its not possible. So we must bring spare time for that task. Its fact!!!
