Bad Lime Breaks the Schedule

So … I’ve lost my mind [and internet] and somehow have signed on to do a few blog tours, but this shit has just gotten to be too much and … I’m out. I mean, I never really felt in with that … but now I’m declaring myself out out of it.

One thing I hope you’ve noticed about A Little Bit Tart, A Little Bit Sweet (which, incidentally, is the actual name of my blog – and I often refer to it as ALBTALBS) is that we only have original content. Original, and exclusive. I might have somehow morphed into more of a promo blog (and *cringe* there), but at least I have new shit.

I don’t have many rules, and often can’t even manage to follow my own posting schedule … but this is something that I feel strongly about. There’s a hard rule. You wouldn’t believe the number of people who seem to have trouble with those comments.

I know I’m preaching to the choir, and ranting at the wrong people … but anyway, what was supposed to go live on Tuesday … won’t be.

And as justification, I give you this. Courtesy of Merriam-Webster.

original:

1 archaic :  the source or cause from which something arises; specifically :  originator

2 a :  that from which a copy, reproduction, or translation is made

 b :  a work composed firsthand
3 a :  a person of fresh initiative or inventive capacityb :  a unique or eccentric person

and

exclusive:

1 a :  excluding or having power to exclude
b :  limiting or limited to possession, control, or use by a single individual or group
2 a :  excluding others from participation
b :  snobbishly aloof
3 a :  accepting or soliciting only a socially restricted patronage (as of the upper class)
b :  stylish, fashionable
c :  restricted in distribution, use, or appeal because of expense
4 a :  single, sole <exclusive jurisdiction>
b :  whole, undivided <his exclusive attention>

So yeah. If either (both) definition doesn’t fit … the post won’t go up at ALBTALBS. (Unless I don’t know about it – I can’t check everything – but if you ever see it, do let me know. Then we can watch me bring the wrath of God down on the offender.) 😀

Happy “Tuesday!”
