There was a time when I used to put a new post every day on mrpeenee, back in the days when I was working. Or “working.” Or let’s just call it back when I had a job, and the job allowed plenty enough free time to keep daily posting viable. Now that I’m retired and all my time is my own, somehow it seems much more difficult to crank up the old mrpeeneegram and rattle off insights into thrift stores, or decorating, or skin care or any of the other labels I tag my posts with. And what an odd, odd list that is, with “beefcake” the most frequent, but also including, apparently, one on “bodily functions.” Even I am scared to see what that might be.
I’m not ignoring my poor little blog, I’m just lazy. I’d feel worse about this, but my perusal of my favorite other bloggers shows me we’ve all slowed down somewhat, and some have just faded off into the distance. Farewell Pansy Bastard, adieu Temporary Troublespots. Let me be quick to add how glad I am to have some of the miscreants drop out and then return (looking at you, Thombeau and Cafe Muscato.)
I understand it’s the lure of Facebook and Instagram and Tumblr and other online wastes of time that have been such a cruel blow to blogging and I also get it that blogging is fast becoming a sort of quaint hobby, like train spotting, but again, I’m lazy, and don’t feel like moving on. Maybe I’ll change the name of this to News from Dinosaurland.

Besides, I’m a gassy old queen and the 140 character limit is one I just couldn’t deal with.
