I was looking through my news feed when I came across an item from Mental Floss about Niche Blogs. There were a few interesting ones, such as Star Trek Points at Things, The Worst Thing for Sale (with some not-safe-for-work content), and a UK blog entitled Dull News in Local Newspapers.
One that especially caught my eye was the “Sorry I Haven’t Posted” blog. This guy just collects posts from other blogs where the blogger apologizes for their lack of timely posts, then goes on to describe why they haven’t posted. It is presented without editorial comment. Since I’ve had at least three of these types of posts on RandomConnections in as many months, I figured it would be appropriate to highlight here.
Here are a few excerpts here…
Oh, 8 loyal readers, I’m sorry I haven’t posted in the past few days.
I didn’t write an update about our meeting last Thursday night with the priest because I had to sort out my feelings first.
To the one of you who reads this, sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been busy with traveling and whatnot. Will be back when I feel inspired by the web again.
Hey sorry I haven’t posted for a long time! I’m going to post right now when I figure out where I left off.
He also links back to the original blog post. Fortunately, I haven’t seen any from this blog.
It seems there is no end to niche blogs. Mental Floss has a whole slew of these in their archives. I think I’ll just skip most of these for now – my Google Reader is already too full. If I’m too busy to write a blog post, then I’m probably too busy to read all of these, too.
