Well that was short-lived. How indecisive and embarrassing.
I am so sorry that I contemplated breaking up with you. You have been good to me and are undeserving of my finickiness. I got word that the grass was greener on the other side of the blogosphere. Turns out it was a false lead.
Ever notice that in some of the brand new neighborhoods, the model home's grass is always a little "too" fresh and perfect? Like say .. the dead of winter when everything else is brown and yet that particular yard maintains a pristine mid-April appeal? Turns out it's spray paint. Seriously.
Now, I am not completely knocking the turf because I realize the grass underneath has to be in pretty decent shape so the paint can stick. BUT, although the grass underneath has to exist, it does not have to be perfect. That's what the paint is for. The fine mist will cover everything and make the bad spots hard to find. It's easy to be taken by the shiny exterior and the promise of perfection. It's not until you notice the glean wearing off do you realize the error of your ways.
That's kind of my long-winded analogy of tumblr. Did I give it my best shot and a completely fair chance? Probably not. Did I give it enough of a chance to form a solid opinion? Yes, I think so. It's not that I couldn't have washed off the paint, put in some hard work and came out with a great lawn. I know I could have. But I didn't want to. I want a lawn that doesn't have to be coaxed too much. I want a good foundation. I want to plant flowers .. not re-seed.
All this to say is that I won't be leaving you, Blogger. You've been to good to me. You are uncomplicated and you meet my needs. Sure I may need to update you and fix your patches but you never misled me. Thanks for keeping my thoughts safe.
PS - Yes, I know I could probably have just deleted the prior post and most of you would have been none the wiser but you know what? Sometimes I would just rather be silly.
