A Thanksgiving Resolution

Hello? Is this thing on? What happened? Once those fires hit, the OC Metroblog posts swirled down the drain and disappeared forever.

Something happens to your brain when you get out the habit of posting. I’m ashamed to admit that the less I post to either of my blogs, the more my mind decays. I’m not ashamed however, to guilt my fellow bloggers (that would be you Gina and Mike and Mike and Miles) into returning this blog to some semblance of activity.

So I put forth this personal challenge for myself. Starting Monday (when I return from a Thanksgiving trip to Seattle) I am going to post at least three damn posts a week to this blog weather anyone actually reads the frigging thing or not! Anyone care to join me in this challenge? Wanna up the anti? How bout the first one not to post three posts a week has to buy the rest of us (readers and bloggers) a drink?

I know it’s not always the life of the party here in OC and it doesn’t help when our fellow bloggers from LA blog about OC (in essence stealing our thunder) but I think I can do it. If I can’t, then at least it will be fun for all you readers to watch me fall on my face.

I hope all of you have a safe, happy and heavily fluoridated Thanksgiving!

    Well I’m still reading and I glad to finally see a new post! You guys look like you’re short of contrubutors and I’d be happy (honored actually) to join in on the fun if you’re looking for new talent on Metro-OC. I live in North OC (Brea), so at least I geographically qualify. Send me an email or reply if you’re interested, otherwise, welcome back!

    YAY!!!!! I check EVERYDAY, and I knew if anyone would pull though it would be Jon! (I still love you Gina, Mikes and Miles don’t worry) I’m tired of reading the LA Blog everytime they go to The Mouse and bash it to death!

    BTW since I’m a regular here, does that mean I get a drink??

    Yeah – man – if it wasn’t for real life, I’d be posting more. Doesn’t help that I’ve got a paid gig I write for now, too…

    Count me in for one a week, though. It’d be nice to have a few more people in our pool too, though =)

    I’m still bitter I got booted cause I didn’t post enough……just sayin’.

    Dave you have my support to come blog with us!

    Michael, I am in agreement, I think we need a couple more bloggers…. any ideas?

    Law school and work just buried me, I’m hoping to post after finals are over. Even my own personal blog has been slow going, I think I had one post over the span of a month.

    We are always looking for writers, send ’em my way and I’ll send them off to Sean.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    You reading this Brian and Dave? Send some examples of your work to Mike Randall and he’ll take it under advisement!

    I tried to convince you you needed a south county blogger like me, but nooooooooo.

    Still, glad you’re back. I’ll be checking in to see who’ll be buying the rest of you drinks.
