It is that awkward moment on a Friday when I do not even feel capable of a Lame Post Friday post. On the one hand, I do not care. We are having a FUN evening, drinking wine and watching television. On the other hand, I feel guilty, because I am a supposedly daily blogger. I have committed myself to publishing something at least mildly entertaining every day. Can I do so today? We shall see.
Earlier this week I posed a philosophical question I find appropriate to today’s post: Do I cut myself too many breaks? I am going to go out on a limb and say NO. Not most of the time.
Obviously, one could argue this. One could argue that I deserve no breaks at all. After all, if I was given no breaks, I would be obligated to make a decent post each and every day. It is quite possible that I am indeed capable of such behavior. By cutting myself said breaks, I am willfully keeping myself from living up to my full potential as a blogger.
There are a number of arguments against this stance. The main one that attracts my present attention is: Is living up to my potential as a daily blogger really such a worthy goal?
Of course there are a number of other arguments to consider. For example, how many breaks do I deserve? If I did not cut myself any breaks, would I in fact live up to my full potential as a daily blogger? Am I in fact capable of never cutting myself a break? What in fact is my full potential as a daily blogger?
OK, it is fairly clear that I can continue to ask any number of questions. I have read the advice that it is OK to ask questions in writing, but one should immediately go on to answer them. Do I always follow advice? We know I do not. Was it even good advice? That is a question deserving of its own Friday Lame Post.
