Shit Bloggers Do

Many thoughts run through my mind when I sit down to do blog related activities. Here are some of those candid thoughts. Thank me later by telling me that you do some of these things too.

  • The word exercise is the devil, not because I hate to work out, but because I will never be able to comprehend its spelling.
  • I should really learn to spell it though before I begin writing. No, I am just going to use Google. I support Google.
  • Great. I have successfully browsed to Why is that even a site?
  • Wait… I am not even writing anything about exercise.
  • Let’s see what is happening on Twitter.
  • Great. I have successfully browsed to Good thing I am not at work.
  • I should Google search “how to type better” instead of “how to spell exercise”.
  • All right, I made it to Twitter.
  • Retweet!
  • Better retweet that.
  • Favorite
  • Who the hell is this naked chick?
  • That definitely warrants a retweet.
  • Favorite
  • Favorite everything!
  • Okay, I need to produce content.
  • Let’s see what Β ideas I have been writing down. “Redo lupus sunflower seeds”. Right.
  • I should add a warning to my notepad that says, “do not record any ideas while drinking”.

The magic really begins after I actually finish a post:

  • Yay, a post is born!
  • That tag is so funny. Everyone is going to think that tag is hilarious. Who uses such an outrageous tag? You do. You are so funny.
  • Why isn’t anyone mentioning the tag? No one looks at tags. Sigh
  • I should go do something else for a while. Right after this last comment reply.
  • No I shouldn’t.

You now know the process behind running a successful blog. Congratulations.

Hey! Happy Birthday to Madame Weebles today! Go over to Le Clown’s page to wish her a good one and tell her she is young and pretty. Me and Jack did!

  1. workspousestory

    Oh my god you’re such a cutie. Come to London πŸ˜‰ (totally off topic)

  2. I’ve typed so many times it’s actually shown in my most visited websites list on my laptop! Doh.

  3. I looked at the tags now that you mentioned them πŸ˜‰ Which is ironic, since I sometimes write (what I think are) funny tags and then get sad when others don’t notice, then I don’t notice others’ tags. Fail.
    Also, Jack has super long whiskers. They’re like, hitting your face from a billion miles away!

  4. I generally do look at the tags, but don’t always register to comment on them!

    And yes, there is something about even writing a blog post that requires a large amount of procrastination – even though usually writing the blog post is a procrastination tool for something else in the first place!!

  5. You beat me too it. Again. You’re crafty. I do all of the above x 10. I need to stop putzing around. Slap me Becca!

  6. really? “alright”? that’ll get you detention. bring duct tape. and crayons. and pudding.

  7. Hehe, you’ve got a beautiful, beautiful mind even with writer’s block πŸ™‚

  8. Haha. I busted out my Batman headphones just so I could watch your video!! That and your post cracked me up πŸ˜›

    I also hate the new dashboard layout. I’ve been doing the same thing as you!!! I know they’re trying to make it “better” but I feel like the new layout takes a lot of functionality away. Glad I’m not the only one who’s been using that workaround!

  9. The amount of time I spend not doing work while trying to write my blog is pathetic. The amount of time I spend not doing work because I am pretending to be writing is HORRIBLY pathetic. For real. Anyway, glad to know I am not the only one whose train of thought gets derailed like that. Heck, eventually, a post is born!

    • That’s all that matters anyway, right? That ultimately a post is published? I say so. Thanks for reading Kiran and for making me feel a little better about my distractions ;).

  10. I do believe that you write more in your comments than in your actual entry.

    The new dashboard is so stupid.

  11. “Better write a post for tonight… just thought of something really good that I could post, but it won’t make sense unless I do it after Sunday… let’s read some other blogs instead… how do I get that widget?.. I should really be working on my actual work… Check for new comments…”

    Damn right I looked at your tags.

  12. Cute, Becca. I love the pigtails and the wine look. And, who is the white kitty? I know you have mentioned her/him before. That’s a sweet kitty. Yes, you should write a book! Do it!

    P.S. I liked the music.

  13. Becca, I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who gets distracted! It’s like that time whe

  14. Know what’s even more fun? Being a blogger who’s married to another blogger. Those thoughts go in circles and circles and circles and you finally realize that it’s out of hand when your baby’s first word is “tumblr.”

  15. Yours is a beautiful mind, Becca.
    That is all.

  16. If your writer’s block is this creative, I’m sure the book writing will be no problem.

  17. The pigtails are so &*%king cute. Just sayin’.

  18. it wasn’t the naked chick you retweeted was it?

  19. Haha. I had that “I should write a book” moment one day.

    So I wrote a book.

  20. Aaaaah you’re so sweet! I just recently switched to WP, no clue how it was before, all I know is that I’m still trying not to curse the entire house together when I write a post. it doesn’t matter that I write in Word first. I always have to edit or write it all over again. My mind can’t make up it’s own…mind. Stupid images that keep on moving around, stupid buttons I keep pushing because I think I can multi-task…

    Anyway! FB & Twitter are the ones I spent most of my time on…deliciously evil. Delicious as I can stalk people…evil because it steals all my time!! Well, almost all my time. Loved reading this post and I kept nodding as I do the same hehe. I don’t have a cat though 😦

    I’ll most definitely read your book when you write one πŸ™‚

    • I bet that does get frustrating! I never write in Word for that reason, unless I am drafting a guest post or a post for IC or some other site.

      I’d be honored to have you stalk me πŸ˜‰

      I think I am going to make 2014 book writing go time!

      • I knew I forgot something!! I’ll read your post on IC later. The Word thing sneaked in when I studied as I always had an extra file open for a blog post or for something else I was writing for fun.

        Stalking you? Yay! I mean…*hides in the bushes* Don’t mind me.

  21. It was an extremely complicated process to get my stupid phone to cooperate just so I could LIKE this post. That’s how badly I wanted to like it, damnit!

  22. I’m so glad I’m not the only one that thinks and acts like you do. I swear it has to be ADHD or something. I’m with you on the book idea too. If I could sit still long enough and NOT blog I probably could get it finished. I doubt it’ll happen soon though. I’ll probably find something shiny to occupy my brain for a couple of hours. Oh look! It’s a squirrel. Later hon.

  23. I do most all of that. Except twitter. I sometimes all of the time forget I have a twitter. Same with pinterest, google+(which honestly I don’t know how that one works), social media in general. Maybe I’ve grown antisocial to media. Thank you for letting me ponder myself and social media on your blog. I needed that.

    WP is sucking in everything lately. You can quote me. I ain’t scared. Hahaha

  24. Your video made me wonder how and what I do while painting and writing. Will tape myself while working to find out. Good post πŸ™‚

  25. I kinda wish I had a cute southern accent like you. It definetly makes you a better writer. (Obvi I can’t spell either)

  26. And this, dearest Becca, is why you inspire me. I’m even more inspired after gaining a ‘behind the scenes’ look at how a successful blog runs. I hope one day to achieve your level of success and hilarity.

    I think the next post should have outtakes.

  27. Becca, you are hilarious. I love reading your stuff. I would love to do some collaboration sometime! Keep it up!

  28. I do all of these things. Yes, I do…

  29. My favorite is posting, reading the post, then jumping back to edit and update seventy two bazillion times to correct the typos and update.

    I blame our education system and the lack of twinkies.

    • Oh Guap. I used to do that a lot too. Then I had to force myself to be patient, write the post, leave it alone, come back and edit a bazillion times, and THEN hit publish. It was a hard battle, but I finally accepted that process.

  30. It’s good to know your thought process when writing a blog. It’s not unlike my own. I’m easily distracted. I tend to get off topic. Where was I? Oh, I was commenting on you blog. Very nice.

  31. Great tags Becca! You bet I did!

  32. Becca,
    That video did make me giggle. I don’t giggle well, I’ve been told, by my kids. I sound creepy, they say. Perhaps if I would put away the cyanide when I giggle…

  33. Dashboard + iPad = Smashboard.

  34. You could totally write a book. Me too. You go first.

    And RIGHT (re: WP dashboard)?! I took me way too long to even FIND my dashboard yesterday.

    • I am in denial of the dashboard. If I just go directly to my site, I still get the old orange envelope and dashboard navigation. Take that WordPress layout people!

      We could write a book TOGETHER!
