Blogger Mavens. I don’t know how they do it. It seems I’m always either ignoring Twitter … or Facebook … or Instagram … or my blog commenters … or posting anything new at all. There are only so many hours in the day. How do these people find time to eat, interact with their children and keep themselves clean? I guess I just need to accept the fact that I will always be slacking off somewhere.
And now it’s summer. My kids are home much more (honestly – yay!). Plus I’m trying to keep up with this daily numbered thing (honestly – WTF was I thinking?). So my social media presence is suffering. And all I can say is THANK GOD FOR THE CAT! I had to laugh when I saw that every one of the latest pictures I tweeted was of his furry, orange face. Of course, in his defense, he’s a natural-born felinedian. (Feline comedian. I’m trying it out to see if it catches on.)
Wanna see his latest portfolio? (awkward pause) Well, I’m sharing it with you anyway.
1. Seeking companionship.
2. Exercising his creativity.
3. In a moment of self-loathing.
4. Masquerading as as a possum (opossum? nasty, disease-ridden marsupial?) and playing dead on my porch. That is one weirdly talented cat. (wink)
June is Blog Post by Numbers Month. Wanna play with Mel and me? Just write a “listy-type” post with a number in the title (ex. FOUR Reasons I Love Mayonnaise, SIX Things You Can Do With A Paper Clip). Then link back to us and tweet us about it so we can include you on June 30th in our final list: (Number-Yet-To-Be-Determined) Great Bloggers Who Played the Blog Post by Numbers Game!
Same thing here. I have FULL intentions of blogging more and tweeting more and Instagramming some. But my God, I work a full time job and then wrangle a friggin family and can barely find time to shave my stupid legs.
HOW DO PEOPLE STAY ON TOP OF THINGS??
I’m lucky if I blog 3 times a month.
Facebook now? I’m all over that crap.
Probably because I can do it at work. Loser-central, here.
You’re not a loser. That’s called multi-tasking. And, for it, you should get a promotion. 🙂
1. Parents who blog have kids who are self-sufficient. Or bitter. But mostly self-sufficient. I hope.
2. I have a secret: I give myself one hour to write a post. I put on Beethoven’s ninth symphony, open a document in Write Monkey (a distraction-free program), and I don’t look at anything else until I’m done. I still don’t get it all done, but it’s better than it was before.
3. We always marinade our possum. We’re uppity like that.
