Legacy: The Blog Must Go On

Have you ever wondered what will happen to your blog if/when you die? You have created this wonderful blog. People come to the Internet from corners unknown around the globe for a peak into your psyche. They come to read the words that have sprung forth from your soul. To steal recipes and introduce them to their families as their own. The gaze in awe at your photos, crafts, paintings and you have no contingency plan for your blog in the event all of your followers outlive you.

I think that is thoughtless and cruel (in a literary sense). Was there ever a television show that you loved? A show that when things we just getting started or things were just getting better and the network canceled that show? Your death could leave your followers with that same empty feeling twice. Once at your death (but how would they even find out) and second because there would be no more posts.

My friends, countrymen, fellow Earthlings; you owe it to your readers. It’s common courtesy. It’s closure. Perhaps all of this sounds dumb to you. Maybe it even sounds a little strange to me, however, if something happened to you, I would want to know. I would want to know the reason you are not blogging anymore. Heck, I want to know that regardless of your death. If you decide to stop blogging I would be hurt if you did not let me know. I consider you all my extended family, my friends.

So, with that being said, I am taking steps this weekend to have this site continue should I die suddenly. Someone will let you know that I have died – perhaps I will even write the post myself. It the reading of my will I shall appoint someone, give them the password and let them know that I would be honored if he/she would continue blogging under the Morning Erection name.

I hope if this happens you would continue visiting to see what he/she has to say. I promise to choose someone with the same caring nature as me. I promise they will also share some things with you that I never did. Hopefully stuff that will make you laugh. No, I am not sick, depressed or suicidal. I do put a lot work into this blog and I have made the best friends on the Internet, hands down. I owe you.

What are your plans for your blog?


This Saturday, in just two days, Jacqui from SocialSistersBlog has graciously volunteered to stand in for Daniel and guest post for me. She has had less than a two week window to decide to guest, decide on a topic and write her post. Please come by Saturday and read about her love of music and her aspirations of being a famous guitarist. Between now and then please feel free to drop by her blog and learn more about Morning Erection’s June guest.

I Got Bronchitis

No, not me personally. My idiot sister showed me this video and unfortunately I cannot help but to share it with you. The background on this video is that a woman was interviewed by a news crew about a fire in her apartment building. She was so comical that the interview was put on YouTube and went viral. Afterwards people of all sorts turned the interview into songs that parodied her interview. Play close attention to her son in the background who told his mother before she went down to not say anything stupid on camera.

First you need to see the original interview and don’t say you don’t have time for that. You do, trust me. Second, you will want watch one of the music remixes of the interview. After you are finished laughing you can go about your business.

Sorry folks, I just now found another version that I might like even more than the above one. It’s all thanks to Dan’s version in the comment section that I found this.


You are in for a wonderful treat. This Saturday, Jacqui from SocialSistersBlog has graciously volunteered to stand in for Daniel and guest post for me.

You Love Horror Movies But They Don’t Always Love You Back

You Love Horror Movies

You love horror movies. You love the feel of your heart beating like it’s coming right out of your chest. The adrenaline courses through your veins and sweat appears on your brow. You have greasy butter covered, salted lips and a lump in your throat. Then the movie is over… and you have to go home to a dark empty (?) house.

Sometime during the night you have the worst nightmare you have ever had and you cannot get back to sleep. You are fully convinced your dream is the direct result of the movie you just watched and you know you won’t be able to get back to sleep.

You hear a noise, you see something out of the corner of your eye. Has that ever happened to you? More than once?

I’m just curious. Has this ever really happened to you? What was the movie and tell me about the dream. When did you get over it and finally get a good night sleep?
