Dear Alex and Astrid,
Hi! I’m your blog! Remember me? It’s been so long since you’ve updated me that I’ve decided I can take the only action left to me …. BLACKMAIL! If you don’t update me soon, I’ll tell all your readers what terrible bloggers you are, and how you abandon me and leave me to languish for ages and ages…. or even worse, you start a blog and upload a bunch of pictures, but you NEVER PUBLISH IT! It’s not fair to me, and it’s not fair to the internet, which is just waiting around with baited breath to see what fun adventures you are up to.
And if blackmail doesn’t work, I’m going to start making things up, and posting all sorts of crazy things that you would never do. Skydiving? Astrid tried it last week and loved it! Pole-dancing? Alex is taking a competitive class! They’re both becoming vegetarian! And voting Republican! And…. and….
please, just update me. (sniff sniff)
