Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it's a treadmill.
Because its okay to say only what you have to say. If that makes a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine.
Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing.
Because sometimes less is more.
Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps the integrity of your blog high.
Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link, and comment numbers on your tombstone.

Because your blog enjoys natural longevity when it never becomes a chore.
