A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint

A confession

Posted by Pepper on January 11, 2014

How does the day whiz by? Everyday I tell myself I will not be stuck in the situation I am in today. That is, I won’t allow myself to get through the whole day without writing a post. Because by the time night descends upon us, I start checking the time every few minutes. What do I do about my post for today? Tomorrow, I will be better prepared. I tell myself that everyday. And yet again, the day goes by and I find myself counting minutes to midnight. So I worry about getting my post up in time, again. Uff.

So today, instead of writing another senseless post, I will make a confession. The truth is, every time I publish a post on my blog, I feel guilty. There are a lot of people who’ve signed up to receive notifications of new posts on this blog through email. I don’t suppose they anticipated me participating in a blogathon. They wouldn’t have expected to see a post from me in their inbox everyday, for 31 days straight. What if they get annoyed? What if they think I am spamming their inbox? What if they are disappointed by the trash I write? What if they get mad at me?

Ofcourse, there is this logic of them having signed up with their own free will and all that, but, you know, still.. I don’t want to let people down. Perhaps they signed up thinking I will entertain them. Perhaps I am just bothering them instead. And so. every time I hit publish, I say a silent sorry to all those people who’ve signed up to receive my posts in their mail. This time, I will just say it out aloud. All you people who read me and are fed up of my everyday writing, I am sorry.
