Guidelines

My 500th post has come and gone.

This is actually post number 508; who knew the Ministry would grow from its humble beginnings as a topless lemonade stand into the global juggernaut of sin and damnation it has become? As I look out over our Hunter S. Thompson style walled compound, I am reminded of the early days. Back then, there were no comics, no limos, no lunches with the Dalai Lama, no hot and cold running BCPs - just a man with a dark vision and a small community of believers. Things were simpler then. Take for example, the sidebar.

The sidebar was once a family affair. I could walk to the house of every blogger listed on it in about 15 minutes. If they fell behind in posting, I could call them and ask if everything was ok before making them a "sinner." Now, the sidebar is a nationwide thing, and although I love the new members of the Flock, I am not in personal contact with them all. In order to keep things fair and equitable, I have to, as I hinted elsewhere, institute some new guidelines for maintaining your Redeemed status.

Minimum Requirements to Acheive Redemption
- A post that makes HSBP smile.

Minimum Requirements to Maintain Redmption
- One post per week.

These new guidelines go into effect over the weekend, and compliance will be checked each weekend from now on. If you're going on vacation or you have some personal emergency, let me know, and your status can be held for you. If, however, you failed to post because you had to take your rare hairless guinea pig to the to the hairless guinea pig specialist in lower Kamchatka, I don't want to hear it. You could have done a fabulous travel blog - what do you think laptops and cell phones are for?

question - do i have to make you smile again to be re-redeemed, or just post more often? - asking doesn't mean that my good intentions will actually achieve more posts... =)

I seem to recall sharing a SG password with his sinfulness once that made him smile. but alas it was not a post so it doesn't count. Hmmm Check my blog come monday, perhaps I will have something smile worthy for you.

You have minimum requirements?

I have a three drink minimum. Does that count?

I recall that password, and it brings a smile even now. Ah, Zui... how I miss her.

I added Clay into the Redeemed in honor of his cute kitten post - go see it.

Tessa, if you would just post twice in a month I'd be impressed... :)

aww now your just asking for mind-reading in order to make you smile...

by the way - good idea the mind reading being a minimum... that will just pool all the above average humans to you so that you can eventually command a lethal task force ....
oops . sorry didn't mean to give away the plan.

I was posting regularly for a few months. Then I lost my cushy IT job, so the bandwagon ran me over, then backed over me. But now I have moved off the road and have started posting again. Hopefully a rouge wagon doesn’t find me.

Does having boils count as a good excuse???

WNG,
Having any biblical plague is an excellent excuse...

Oh snap, I was brought back from "$%&#ing-excommunicated indeed status"? Well, I'll have to return the favor then.
