MY Processes of Blogging-Undecided

I was going to commit myself to "Spread the Word, Thursday" I had every intention of doing this and I did for three weeks (I think). I write my post the night before, so Wednesday evening I am sitting here and it never crosses my mind that it will post Thursday. Just a little dense that way. About halfway through my Thursday's, I will remember, proceed to feel bad, shoot myself a bad word and quickly think about going in and adding it to my post . Five minutes later, I am struggling to remember "What was it I was going to do?" If it doesn't come to me within a minute (which it doesn't), my brain moves on to something else.

I have stuff floating around in my brain all the time, either from reading other blogs, from something on the tv or happenings around me. At first when I started this blog, I would write down all these random things and most of the time I wouldn't use them anyways. So I eventually stopped doing that.

Your probably wondering "Just what is this post about?"
My answer...ummm..I'm not sure really! Maybe it is just about MY processes of blogging. Boring, I know.

I wanted to start a weekly post of random pics of things around the house, but the camera's batteries are dead and I only have one battery left, it needs three.

I thought about showing yall the wallpaper I look at everyday, I thought it was a neat idea. Till I thought "How legal is that?", Can't you get in trouble for putting someone elses work on your site, without their permission?" So, alas I won't be showing you it, until I get confirmation that it is not breaking some kind of rule/law. Not sure how to get the permission, since I can't even remember where I got it.

Then there was the fleeting idea of writing about the weather, but seriously it's pretty much cold everywhere. If not, please don't tell me! I already have huge envy for those with central heat, right now! I don't need to add to the envy, people with natural heat.

I also thought about Stephanie's post about "Getting More Blog Readers" (if you haven't had the luxury of reading her blog, treat yourself on my dime, I'll still be here when you get back).

I thought it was an interesting assignment, but I don't think my dial-up would be able to handle a huge readership like hers. So, I shot that idea down. It's a miracle I manage as many blogs as I do. BTW..did ya notice I'm up to 20 followers. That just happened today, thank you Suzicate! She's another one you should take the time to visit.

Well, since I have put you through the post about indecision of what to post, I will leave you with this:


One of the presents I got from MIL, at Christmas. Check out those eyes! Yup, that's me!

OMG, I LOVE indecision! It is so much funnier and unpredictable...I am with you! I am sure I had something more productive to write but nope!

Racy minds, what's the cure?

I would love to see your wallpaper!

Thank you for visiting my blog. So you discovered that I kind of yammer aLSO ON MY BLOG. No better way to do it. I think a blog is to have fun with and not worry about intellect. Mine has run out, what little I had so I yammer about what ever comes to mind. Lately SNOW AND COLD.

I love frogs (just not the real ones!) and people give me all sorts of them.

That frog is adorable!!! I'm like you. If I don't write it down it's gone. If I make a turn or a motion, it's gone. Whoops! Wish I could write at night, but I do better in the morning when my brain is clear (if I can get up that is).

Thank you for mentioning me! Some of the best blog posts, I've found, are blogs about nothing. Just random thoughts from our heads. I haven't done one like that in a while, but I always loved doing them...and we love reading them!

I love the random posts where people just write what they think. And I really like your frog!!

Wait? Why don't you have central heat??

I knew there was a reason I liked you! My brain works much the same way...thus my reason for blogging. I needed an outlet and my 3 year old just doesn't "get" me. Love reading your randomness. =)

Eternally Distracted...Indecision can be very funny at times.

Ocean Girl...No cure so far.

Lucy...When I get to your age, I hope I can still have the ability to think!

Suzicate...for a long time I would get Elephants from every member in the family!

Angelia...Thanks, I like it a lot too. I seriously hate forgeting things.

Stephanie...Your Welcome! For me random posts are easier than any other post.

Spot...Thanks. When we moved here the system was already broke and the duct work all gone.
The broken system is going to be torn out to build a linen closet.

Grace...I think so too!

Mindy...LOL! If I couldn't blog, I would drive my family and friends insane over the phone. Thanks.

My process of blogging is so unpredictable I wouldn't even try to get it down on paper.

I had to chuckle at your camera being out of batteries though, with the New Year I wanted to start taking a photo a day to maybe post later, I got as far as 01/04 before my batteries ran out. Stupid juice sucking camera batteries. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

Mrsbear...LOL! I have never had something that ate batteries as bad as these new cameras! Your Welcome!

I'm a big fan of the random post. Sometimes though, I find myself walking through my next post, and I'll even say it out loud at the time. For instance, the post about biting my lip and being mad at Jesus. When I spit the mouth full of blood into the trash can, I actually said, "I just spit my next blog post into the trash." Funny how the process works, isn't it?

You're up to 22 followers now!! :)
I like the idea of taking a photo a day, but that's a lot of work. Get your camera, take a picture, upload it, post it....who has all that time???
I love random posts.

Is that a frog-planter? Maybe...
A frog-slipper? No...there's only one...

A frog umbrella-holder? Nope...too short.

A frog sponge holder? Nah...too big.

I give up.

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

John...If only my brain would work that quickly!

Kaylen...THANKS!! I guess I have the time, but I just need to find the batteries.

Kathryn...I'm going to guess planter. Hadn't really thought about what it might be.
