While We're on the Subject

After I put up the previous post (first in over a month), I saw Andy's comment back in November admonishing me to "feed the blog."

Well, Andy, if you must know, the blog went on a hunger strike to protest the playing of Christmas songs and the having of Christmas parades long before Thanksgiving. I mean, Thanksgiving has its own vibe--earthy and crisp and vaguely russet-colored--and you sure can't groove on yams and crisp-fried sage with the man in red breathing down your chimney neck.

But this blog has finally realized the futility of railing against overhasty noƫlling. It's death, taxes, and the extended Christmas shopping season, after all. So I guess the time's come to nurse this little weblog back to health.

I'll start with a few questions:

Back in August, I posted an entry explaining how I tend to blog in spurts and am only good at regular or semi-regular posting during the semester. Am I a "type," I wonder? Is there a name for feast-or-famine bloggers? Is spurty blogging looked down upon by more regular bloggers? Does a blogger have a responsibility to her faithful readers (not sure I ever had any, which is why this question is hypothetical) to post at least semi-regularly? Or is it just about the law of the market--no posts = no readers?

Of course, you are responsible to us, er me. Good luck getting that article done - I'm trying to finish one this break myself...

Thanks, and good luck to you, too.
