When blogging isn’t fair

A friend of mine, we’ll call him Payne, hadn’t updated his blog in seven months. Since Payne and I talk about writing a lot, I issued a challenge, it went something like this:

Me: Hey! Your writing goal for this week is to write one blog post. I don’t care if you post a picture of a toe with a one word caption (toe). Your blog needs content.

Payne: The pressure!

Me: You need it.

Payne: I’ve moved on.

Me: What do I need to do, slap you in the face with a white glove?

Payne: We’ll see.

And a few and sundry other comments, with no clear indication of whether Payne was going to post or not.

One day later…

Payne: Over 200 pageviews today. Thanks for the kick in the ass.

Rat bastard.
