Apology accepted

Filed under: Tongue In Cheek — Tags: , — Michael J. Swart @ 10:10 am

An open letter to delinquent SQL bloggers.

I accept your apologies which you thoughtfully expressed in posts such as here, here, here, here, here and here. You expressed desires to make amends and reconcile with me and I truly hope you were sincere.

I know that mistakes were made and there are regrets on both sides. But I think pointing fingers would be counterproductive at this stage.

So today, on behalf of SQL Blog readers, I hereby accept your apologies and forgive you all.

Together I think we can get through this difficult time. I think it’s best now if we focus on the present. And I think with patience, time and more consistent blog posts, I will not only forgive, but forget.

All kidding aside. It’s no biggie. I really never miss the lack of posts from any particular author in my RSS feed aggregator. I just mark such apology-posts as read and get on with the day.


  1. I'm with you on that one. i've never understod the need for "i'm sorry i haven't blogged in so long" types of posts. no use for them whatsoever.
