Ping Storm!

This habit many bloggers have of taking the weekend off leads me to suspect that either they do most of their blogging from work, or they consider blogging to be work.
I can understand the former if they don't have internet access at home (although the opposite holds true for me). But if the latter is the case, why do they bother to do it? It's not like anyone is getting paid by the word in blogging. It's not (for most of us, anyway) that difficult to compose a sentence or two and hit publish. I can understand why someone like Frank would take the weekend off, because he posts the equivalent of several small novels every week. But others like Victor who just take off for the beach on the weekend without even asking his Loyal Reader if its ok with her.....or John Collins, who just doesn't post the weekend through.... Goodness, even Bill posted a deep and meaningful analysis of the nuances of lint yesterday!
Kevin thoughtfully provided for my entertainment needs yesterday, as did Tiger and B.B.M.M. Pixy Misa.

Now here's a link to this week's New Blog Showcase Entry.
Pixy has part 7 of the Blogfather up, and I have to go watch!

Sometimes there are just better, family-and-friend-related things to do on the weekend. I suspect my weekend blogging will increase once winter comes upon us.

You're right, I tend to blog mostly from work. (Bad, I know...)

Although I did manage a couple of entries over the weekend.
