The Blog That Will Survive

March 27, 2022

Especially relevant coming from a stage four cancer survivor…

As anyone who reads my blog already knows, I publish a new post every Monday and Friday at noon. I have done this for years and will continue for many more, I hope.

However, today I will share a little secret with you. I write my posts to cover a period of at least 48 months in advance. I then alter the post dates to accommodate breaking news, timely entries and posts that just can’t wait? Why do I do this? There are several reasons.

First, I am a very prolific writer who always seems to have too much to say. I don’t want to bore any of you to death with posts that prattle on for thousands of words. I believe in brevity and try to spread my thoughts out over several entries rather than just one big tome.

The second reason is to simply seize the moment and write on subjects that compel me. These posts may well not be the most important in the whole scheme of things but they will surely deserve a place in the future. I like to think ahead. In the end, it’s called economy in writing.

The last reason is much more practical. As I am now officially enrolled in geezerdom, I am keenly aware that time is not forever. That dude with the cloak and sickle is lurking nearby. I write many blog posts in advance in the good humored knowledge that they may well appear after I’m gone. My smile is devilishly turned-up as I imagine you reading this or another entry long after I am no longer able to write. Cruel? No, just a little morbid fun from an old guy who never misses the humor in any instance.

This will leave all of you to ask yourselves at some time, “Did he write this on Friday, years earlier or is he already gone?” I would insert a smiley here but I couldn’t find one big enough.

  1. Thinking of the future has its advantages. I once said, “Living like there is no tomorrow can bite you on the ass when tomorrow comes.” 🙂
