Amazing Adventures of Taconite Boy!

Another Amazing Adventure of Taconite Boy

Announcer: We bring you now to another Amazing adventure of Taconite Boy! A new evil nemesis wreaks havoc in the universe as our heroes rush to the scene...

...loud sucking whirring, like a vacuum cleaner....

Taconite Boy - I can't take it, Bigun, he's got me in his evil clutches and I can't get away!

Bigun - Fight it, Tac - here, take my hand!

TB - (grunting) .....got 'cha!

Announcer - a huge swirling tornado of idea-sucking vacuum is being directed at our SuperHeros. All who enter are rendered blogless! A dark, sinister being is at the helm of this device which seems to suck ideas and motivation right out of it's victim's skull!

Bigun - Resist Tac, Resist - Don't fall down the path of Bolder, FE Lady, the Kahuna and now even Nytro! Look, there goes Tea! (yelling to the evil one...) Whoever you are....you'll pay for that!

Unknown Evil One: ...Sinister laugh...

Announcer: Swirling out of control in a mass of legs, arms and a cordless computer keyboard, Tea spins headlong into the vortex...

Tac Boy: (with effort) I....can't....hold....on....Bigun! I'm slipping!

Bigun: Don't let go, TacBoy, the blogger world needs you to keep on putting pen to paper! There are even more devious evildoers than this insidious character out there...I can't do this alone!

TB: I'm slipping.....(echo off)....aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.....

Bigun: Noooooooooo!

Announcer: Diving into the vortex after Taconite Boy, The.Bigun races, without a plan, to save his podcasting partner from impending doom. Tune in next time to see what happens next!

Hell, I'm willing to jump in there with you.

I hate all this blogstopping thats going on.

To all the bloggers out there:

On one hand I don't want to begrudge anybody their right not to blog. On the other hand, no matter how small the friendship is, I feel like someone is saying "I don't have time for you".

Don't get me wrong, I know it's not personal at all. I expressed on Bolder's blog that I don't get it. And I don't! What's the pressure? When you have something to share, share it. When you don't, don't. When your busy, don't worry about it, we will be here and happy to see when you have the time. If you have something boring to say, then say something boring. Likewise with something exciting. If it's not fitness related, so what? Our friendship is not conditional on some level of entertainment or quality of message. What kind of friendship would that be?

Looking at my posts, there is 1 month with only 1 post and another with a whole 11 (most are around 3 or 4). Neither of those numbers stress me.

I understand, but don't stop blogging!

. . . and what happened to Courtney at http://140point6miles.blogspot.com? She went private on us.

And tri-dummy!

What happened to Tri-dummy? some kind of race bling accident?

Sarah said...

Bigun better do some saving, I can't handle this. I know you all have been around for awhile, but I'm just now discovering Ironman and I want some blogger buddies. Wah!

Post season let down?

I feel like I have lost some friends and I am grieving because of this....

I am sure many of us, me included will get our blog-mojo back sometime soon!

TriSherpa Di aka "Mrs Bigun" said...

okay - guilty here too. I haven't been blogging so much either. I have to confess, reading blogs has fallen by the side too. It's just a lot going on right now, but i don't intend to stop blogging, I'd miss everyone too much.
I'm with Jumper, you don't have to STOP just because you are in a lull. Hopefully, those who have "left" us will return.

I just hawked my road bike for a laptop-Trimama is coming back! and I'll kick Tac's butt as I pass him on the road-he's not going anywhere anytime soon. :-)

SAVE YOURSELF!!

Taconite Boy said...

Bigun saved me. I just need something interesting to say and that has been lacking of late.

One post a week will be my goal right now.

Bullet said...

I'm feeling the pull myself. Glad there's someone out there fighting for us.

The Clyde said...

Everyone has the right to do what they want with their time....that being said, the number of folks who are deciding to hang up blogging all together is a little disturbing to me.

Can't there be a happy medium? Just reduce the number of posts you do?

The Monster Magnet said...

Haha, you guys are hilarious. I love the show. I'm a neurotic bike tweaker and nothing makes painting/wrenching more fun than to hear you guys yelling at each other in the background. Keep it up!

IronTriTim said...

Just make sure the podcast is not an excuse to stop blogging.

triguyjt said...
