Blogging will be light.............

I am simply amazed at the dedication shown by some spirited bloggers to the cause of keeping their readers constantly educated /engaged/ enraged/ amused/bemused/ curious/ furious, as the case may be. Such is their sense of accountability that they feel obliged to forewarn the readers about an impending lull in the activity or explain, post-facto, why they went missing for a few weeks/days/hours.

“Blogging will be light the next few days, as I will be traveling/slogging/shifting”, they will inform their readers, with a lump in their virtual throats. .

A prominent blogger felt it necessary, last month, to offer a detailed explanation on why he could not manage even a single post the previous day, apparently the first such post-less day in months. He promised his readers that he would post feverishly the next day and make up. Another blogger returning from a trip that he had to unexpectedly undertake, apologized profusely to his readers and sought pardon for this AWOL misdemeanour.

The most amazing was the case of a blogger who was about to embark on a two-week tour. In a guilt-laden tone he begged forgiveness from his gentle readers for letting them down and suggested that if they should find the absence unbearable, they could perhaps dip into his archives, adding that he particularly recommended the ones that he had posted in September 2005. Whaa?

Anyway, I thought I will inform all my regular readers who hang on to every word of mine, that blogging will be light the next few hours, as I intend to go to sleep now and wake up only in the morning. If you find my absence unbearable and the boredom intolerable, do keep reading the Sep 2005 archives of the blogger I have mentioned in the para above.

LOL I will read your September archives instead; even though I read them once before.

Sirjee,sad to see you absent from the virtual world for a few hour...but do sleep well.Hopefully like sleepwalking,don't engage yourself in sleep-blogging too.It might hurt the keyboard if not the blogger himself.

How could you raj? How could you renege on your duty to your readers and engage in frivolous activites as "sleep" I'd have considered you more sensitive than that. it is a major let down which I am unable to handle. Let me warn you if anything were to happen to be during this period of unbearable postlessness of blogging, you are totally responsible!

As usual, I have to face a barrage of protests over my absence. Can't a guy have a few hours of sleep?
