How to Lose Followers

I have been dealt a couple crushing blows in the last few weeks. I have been too busy to post regularly. I can't come up with any good ideas lately. When I have a moment of time to think for myself all I can come up with is engineering thoughts convoluted by my desire for a cold beer. I have lost my ability to write interesting posts. In the meantime I have lost two followers. I am back under 70. It would then occur to me that I have found a way to kill my blog. Don't post regularly. That will do it.

I haven't found the cure for my blogger's block yet so I am sharing a video. The subject is none other than the inspiration for this blog, Braden. He told me that he has some words for those blog quitters out there. Presumably he is saying don't you ever give up on my daddy. He is the greatest blogger this side of Lake Hamilton. Since I can't be sure that is his stance, here he is to clarify.

But now you have 69 followers and that's always a great number!

I thought I heard "Go Red Sox" in there but I can't be sure! ;-)

You know, right after he said "Go Red Sox", I'm certain that I heard him say "Melisa is totally awesome!"

I'm pretty sure I heard "away" between "go" and "red sox", or an expletive, but that's besides the point. Hang in there! I just went through blogger's block on vacation, but I'm back now. It's good to be back.

And there might have been a little "Yankees Suck" in there as well. Don't worry, our kids all pick up the little things we say...

I didn't hear any of those sports comments in there, but I thought he did a great job of giving your followers a stern talking to about dropping his dad when he has bloggers block. LOL.
Go Braden!

It's all good, between the jet lag and getting some family time back in you'll get your groove back. And when you do, we'll be here waiting for you. Loved the video.

Why would someone stop following a blog? That is just stupid!

Sounds to me like Braden really gave them what for! Don't get down about it. Those numbers go up and down all the time. Also this was the best time of year to do fewer postings. Everyone is busy with back to school and end of summer vacations and readership falls.
