A Soggy Bloggy Apology

To all of my friends out in old cyberspace...
I send you my love and say, "I'm red of face!"
I've been a bad blogger for far too long now...
My head is a hangin', I feel as down as the Dow.
I have not been a visitin' you all as I should...
and I truly feel rotten, I know I'm no good.
My posts are sporadic, quite boring and dull...
a worse blogger there ain't and that is no bull!
I miss each of your blogs when I just can't come by...
and then I feel guilty, I mumble, I sigh.
I sputter and drool, I make a big mess...
Susie Q needs a kick in the pants I confess!
I'm afraid that I've lost many old blogging pals...
and I know it's my fault, I've been bad to my gals.
I promise to improve if you'll all give me time...
and I shan't be a writin' another sad rhyme.
Why, Brian himself would tell me to "Can it!"
Stop whinin' and cryin', just buck up and man it...
Get back to bloggin' the way that I should...
go without water and daylight and food...
Write more and comment and visit and blog...
post about Ritter's and Kipper the Dog!
Stop by each friend's blog and show that I care...
why it's only right! It's only fair!
I'll get off of my keister and get back to work...
I hope you'll forgive me for bein' a jerk!
Love and Hugs,
Susie Q

Good golly molly Sue, you do not have to apologize. I'm sure everyone will agree, we all love you no matter what. I love your posts. You are a wonderful witty woman who can always put a smile on me face! So cheer up miss Suzy Q and don't you frown. I know I'm guilty of the very same, but hey, we all have times when it just doesn't work. I'll never leave ya no matter what. I do get behind on my visitin' but know that all are great friends her in bloggy land.
So dry them tears, wipe up the druel, put on that beautiful smile and come out a...shoot, at a loss for a word here, help!!!
Love you always!

Sweet Bunny Lady, don't you give it another thought. We're here for our favs and you're one of mine. Just cause we blog doesn't mean we gotta do it constantly. Most times it's just when we have something we want to say. Remember when I took a hiatus? Remember when my 'Muse' was out partying and left me all alone? So blog when you can, visit when you can, it's all about the love here. Even BD would say that. :) xxoo

Susie Q, it is getting to that time of year when all of us get busier than usual. We will all take breaks from time to time...but just because I don't see your name as a visitor, doesn't mean I take you off my blog roll. No sir ree!!
You just do what you have time for as this blogging goes...it just works better!!

Sue, this post if fabulous as are all your posts. I missed you, but totally understand the need to get away for a little R&R, from blogland!

Brenda Eason said...

Oh girl you haven't been so bad. I think I have been too. Maybe something in the air. hehe Your forgiven=)

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Well Sue, you have not lost me! Please don't worry about not visiting everyone. Life keeps us all busy. You will visit when you have time...
Hugs,
Penny

Cass @ That Old House said...

Your posts are charming gifts, and you aren't obligated to give them; we just enjoy them when they appear!

Cute rhyme; I think we've all been there and can empathize.

Relax. It will all still be here when you are ready to jump back in with both feet, or, more usefully, ten fingers.

Nancy said...

Wow, if you think you are a bad blogger, I must be a horrendous blogger. I love your blog. We are very much kindered spirits. So quit beating yourself with that wet noodle and get back to enjoying life.

salmagundi said...

We forgive!! And no apologies needed! We all have to stop and vacuum the floor, do the dishes, etc. occasionally to say nothing about our first responsibility - family!!! Don't worry, we are still here. And like you, we aren't here every minute of every day, just when we can. Cheer up, my friend. We are not going to desert you. Sally

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

What a great poem! And you're not the only one who needs to get off her keister. I've been moving in slow motion all fall and winter it seems so I need a good kick in the butt too. Must be menopause!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

You're no jerk, silly girl!
I stop by your blog because I enjoy it, not to get a comment back.
We love you!

BittersweetPunkin said...

I love it! You don't have to apologize...I have been pretty absent myself lately....life is calling!

JafaBrit's Art said...

Oh wow are you hard on yourself! silly sausage! I love when you visit but just like many people (including myself) it is impossible to visit all our fave blogs (otherwise it would become a full time job).

so no need to apologize :)

Terri and Bob said...

Hello stranger! I have been missing you! Cheer up though, because I am sure you have been busy doing all kinds of good things!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I will always come by to see you. It is harder to blog with all that needs to be done this time of year...hugs...m.

imjacobsmom said...

Thanks for taking the time, to give us a rhyme. It's hard to keep up once in-a-while and we all understand. Hope to hear from you soon. ~ Robyn

Lisa said...

Wow, how could we ignore all THAT???? Awesome. You are such a creative smartie!! My friend Gayla would love to have you in her English class. Annie did a short post last night. This has been her first feature in a while. Now that summer is rolling around the corner, she'll be doing more assignments. Oh, she said to tell you she can't wait to see Kipper at Ritter's again!! love, lisa and annie p.

Omah's Helping Hands said...

By the way sweetie, I have an award for you, well, actually two if you did not catch the one from a short while ago that I forgot to inform everyone of. :) Come by and pick them up!

Sheila said...

No need to apologize,
no need to fret.
I've been a bad blogger
too, I regret!

But hey, that's ok
We'll always be here
You're such a good friend
Who always brings cheer!

Stop by when you can
and have a look,
But if not that's OK -
I'll see you on Facebook!

:)

Sue said...

Oh your crazy....no need to feel bad about not blogging....I realized just how much time it takes not only to write and post but to visit everyone especially when your fav list grows and grows....I thought about making a list and visiting certain blogs on certain days...Like Monday is Georgia bloggers....Wednesday is my Darling Bakers....and so on...I thought it has to make things easier and you get to visit everyone once a week....Thank goodness I don't work I don't know how people do it that hold down a job too!! Anyhoo, I have an award for you over at my blog so stop by and visit and pick it up......I'm posting about Paris again tommorrow if you want to wait and get two for the price of one....Hope your all okay and I'm happy to be back....Sue.

Big Hugs and Smiles,

Janet said...

All is forgiven and now I feel a little less guilty about my lack of bloggin' and spending too much time on fb.

Off to Vermont to meet a lurker! Have a great weekend.

HAH very funny and awesome poem. And you don't have to apologize doofus. Sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging lol. And we all have to be slackers now and then!

Meggie said...

Oh dear Sue, I certainly understand! I can't find much to blog about yet it seems I'm quite busy. Don't know what my problem is actually. But please know that I certainly understand. Hang in there!

Hi Susie,
Don't worry about it!! Not worth it.

Kathleen Grace said...

You don't need to apologise for anything! We are all busy and sporadic, but we keep coming back for more:>) I'm still here Susie!

Melanie said...

Your posts may not be as frequent as some but they are never dull!!! No need to apologize. I look forward to what you have to say as well as Kip's continuing adventures! Take care.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

You are sooo funny and definitely not a jerk. We love you Susie Q.!

Daisy Cottage said...

You are stuck with me..
Sorry Charlie!
You are too cute - be good to yourself.. you blog whenever you want.. life is calling and I'd rather you be living each minute to its' fullest then worrying about us.
Love you Sue!
