Sometimes I don’t want to blog.
Usually those “sometimes” come around when I’ve had about 4 hours of sleep, missed a writing deadline, babysat, got depressed about taxes, had 177 emails I haven’t responded to, and then had to stay up until midnight packing for a trip that I kind of forgot I was taking. Oh yes…and then remembered that I was supposed to write a blog post before going to bed.
Not like this happened
yesterday recently or anything.
So here’s my blog post on the fly. Blogs, to me, are often like writing letters to a friend. So please excuse me if this one’s a little more…letterish than normal. 😉 A friend asked me lately, “Do you ever have a hard time figuring out what to write for you blog posts?” Apparently I give the impression that I have everything together and I’m never stressed and blogging comes easy. *sarcastic laugh* Come be a fly on the wall in my writing room. You’ll learn rather quickly (until I smash you with a used book or something.)
Yes, sometimes I have a hard time blogging. Like today. Sometimes I have a hard time adulting, cooking, writing, hoping, shaloming, cleaning, eating, etc….LIKE ALL OF US DO. And that’s okay. (Right? RIGHT?!) Sometimes I’ve got to be real with y’all (okay, I’m always real with you. But sometimes the “ugly real” comes out.) This is my “tired week.” The week where I worked on weekends (including Sundays! HEATHEN!) and stayed up late when all I wanted to do was read someone else’s fiction and cook like the chefs on Chopped.
“But Nadine,” you say. “It’s only Wednesday. The week’s not even over.”
*dies* You mean there’s more? 😛 Nah, that just means there are three whole days in which to make this “tired week” something amazing.
What’s the point of this blog post? Um, it’s midnight. Was I supposed to have a purpose when writing it?
I guess the point is to show that I’m human. I also want to tell you why I blog:
I blog to connect with people.
That’s my main reason. I love seeing your comments and writing letters to you, my friends and readers. I spend more time agonizing over whether or not you’ll like my next
blog post letter or not. Because I want to be interesting, I’m interested in you, and I like friends.
I blog because I like it.
Yes, I’m psycho like that.
Despite this little harrumph post, I actually adore blogging (because of point #1.) I love sharing thoughts that are less than 100,000 word novels. I love being able to just blurp (totally a word) whatever random silliness or brain teaser topic that pops into my head. It’s like I’m having a conversation with friends where I talk too much and make a dork out of myself, but then find out you’re dorky too and we then dance around the room in LOTR cloaks and Harry Potter wands.
Hm…this point kind of turned back into the “to connect with people” point. *shrug*
I can’t think of any further points about why I blog.
Blame it on the fact it’s midnight. Or blame it on the fact that I just truly really want to connect with you.
*bows* Thank you so much for you grace in wasting 3.4 minutes of today by reading this silly nonsense post. Thank you for not burning me at the stake for not having a well thought-out and bullet-pointed blog post. Thank you for being you, for being interested in me, and for letting me be a dork right back at you. 😉
When was your last “tired week” and what helped you overcome it?
What would you like to see me blog about? (This is my attempt to make you come up with the ideas instead of me. 😛 )
