Ten Excuses for not Posting Lately

People are really good at making excuses and I’m no exception. I try not to accept my excuses though as they’re usually pathetic, just like all of your excuses for not getting off your butt and doing what you really should be doing now.

Here’s my pathetic excuses for not posting lately..

  1. There’s not enough hours in the day
  2. I have been overdosing on art
  3. I need a break (those close to me would find this excuse funny)
  4. My head has been in the clouds
  5. The blog doesn’t make any money anyway (well duh, put ads on it!)
  6. When I paint everyday I become sensitive to everything and everyone
  7. Sometimes I have nothing to say and all the news bores me
  8. I don’t feel like it
  9. Just because
  10. C.

Here’s a recent painting of Melbourne (click for larger image)..

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.


  1. Good to see you are painting, at least…a great use of your time!

  2. I love excuses-I am always looking for new ones to add to my own list! Plus it makes me feel a bit more normal to hear that others do the same-glad to see the new work though!

  3. I feel like you…..great to see your new work!

  4. We, blogges, should have an additional hour or two to blog…donĀ“t you think? :)

  5. We have our own excuses everytime we haven’t updated our blogs. What important is, we come back and start all over again! There’s so many blogers are not updating their blog regularly.

    But I love your work here! Very interesting!

  6. Monica Azevedo says:

    Some of these excuses are already on my list. As a woman and mother, I have so many practical excuses too. So I need at list 6 more hours in a day!

  7. Don’t beat yourself up we’re all human, we’re not robots. I’m always putting things offbut I still get things done in my own time.
