A Blogger’s Valentine


Roses are red, violets are blue
My post is still blank, and I haven’t a clue.

I remember the days when just starting out,
A domain name took days upon weeks to come about.

They spoke of hosting, a term I would discover,
Is somewhere in space my dear website would hover.

Should I design myself or shell out some dough?
Graphic design here I come. 100 bucks for a logo?

I published my first post for all to see,
One like from my mom. Sad, I agree.

Edit and edit and edit some more,
Publish. Oh crap, it’s “for” not “four”.

The comments started building with rave reviews,
With 50% spam for Louis Vuitton shoes.

I swore I would kick this 9 to 5,
But then the lights would go out and the water’d run dry.

After all of the stress I still can’t wait to come home,
By myself in a room, but never alone.

Sometimes I want to punch the screen through,

But Happy Valentine’s Day blog, I still love you.

And Happy Valentine’s Day to all the tireless bloggers out there.

  1. Cute πŸ˜‰

  2. I think this is the only bit of corniness I’ll condone on Valentine’s Day! I don’t really partake in the collective fuss that is February the 14th, but this was sweet and not altogether inconsequential.
    I’ll go ahead and mentally recite this in my own little corner of the Internet -at last, a good love story πŸ™‚

  3. That’s awesome=) Happy Valentine’s Day, fellow blogger. May your words never run dry and thus your screen never be blank.

  4. Yup, feel the ups and downs of that love too. Happy Valentine’s Day Joe. Nice rhyme scheme πŸ˜‰

  5. Love it!
    And it rhymes, too.
    Happy Valentines to all bloggers, may our inspiration never run dry!

  6. Great! Especially love the one like…from Mom <3

  7. Happy V-day everyone!

  9. Adorable post; Happy Valentine’s Day!

  10. Liked your poem. Truth in it and it made me smile. Happy Valentine’s Day to you.

  11. A straight-up G, aren’t you? A peculiar love story, between a blogger and the blog. Love-hate, sometimes, but they come around in the end.

  12. Wait… Have you been spying on me? It’s always refreshing to read that others are not perfecting their blog ‘with the greatest of ease’ as one would think.
    I’m so often diligently writing at midnight, just to make sure mine publishes at the promised weekly time. I think only my mom knows when that time is… =0)
    Love the poem and the smiles it brought. Happy Valentines to you.

  13. Such a cute, fun poem… Loved it!
    Simple truth…simply put… πŸ™‚
