I Return

Like so many ideas, it sounded reasonable at the time. I had the funny, he had the pretty... joining them would be easy. We began with light hearts and a very random posting schedule, and for a time we just amused ourselves and our friends. It seemed there was always time for a good sermon, no need to worry about continuity, and plenty of apple butter to go 'round. We bathed in the comments of our readers, who laughed and cried with us, and slowly named themselves "fans."

And there it began to change.

You see, the fan is to the internet creator as the faithful are to the preacher. If they come to your little church, and maybe bring others with them, it proves to you that all of your pulpit pounding is not in vain. For that vindication, you must give them something in return. You have to offer up what they seek - be it guidance or salvation or an example or protection - in the proper doses to keep them coming back for another hit. In short, you now have a responsibility to your flock.

Although the comic rolls along, the blog has not. I have failed in my responsibility. I was called away to the mountaintop (well, a mountain of paperwork, but still) and I left you to your own devices. Although I was given no stone tablets with commandments to bring back with me, I did sort of expect to find you all dancing naked at the feet of a golden calf. Apparently, in my absence, cooler heads prevailed (which is comforting and disappointing at the same time).

Please understand that I am sorry, and to make ammends, I intend to begin a frenzy of posting that will rival the Great Comment War of '04. There will be religious posts, funny posts, sick posts, clever posts - hell, I might even talk about Harry Potter's wang again...

It's good to be back.

Please, for the love of all that is holy and unholy, no further discussion of Harry Potter wang. I still haven't recovered.

Dude, WNG said "naked" and you didn't capitalize on it? You must be distracted...

I mean, naked WNG dancing at least requires a request for pictures, if not video.

His Sinfulness said...

You're right. The lay-off has put me off my game. %Thank goodness you're here to keep an eye on me...%

Nerdygirl said...

Well, it is my job.

WNG said...

Thanks Nerdy! It's good to know that someone cares about my potential nudity...

His Sinfulness said...

I CARE! Especially if it means there will be pictures!

WNG said...

CARE? You didn't even notice!!! Nerdy had to remind you.

His Sinfulness said...

I'm not going to win this, am I...?

WNG said...

No.
