Oh, hi there. I don’t want to be writing this post. Actually, that’s a moderate lie- I didn’t want to write any posts because I could not come up with a topic. Seriously friends, the well is dry over here. So I opened a blank post, looked at the screen for awhile, then made fun of clothes with Val for a half hour to procrastinate. (When clothes make even the models look like crap, it’s time to reevaluate. Just saying.)
(Low key almost just posted about these “fashion” disasters, I won’t lie.)
I digress. I have been pretty good at being chill about the blog lately. But I hate to go too many days in a row without posting something. And what happens when you try so, so hard to come up with something? That’s right- your brain freezes, and you turn into a mess of a person who can’t even remember her own name.
But whilst bitching to Val, she said “just don’t post!” and I fake gasped in horror, because no, that is not an option! Only… of course it is, because it’s my blog and I can do what I want. Then I started to think: What do others do when they flat out don’t feel like posting? I figured there were a few options.
- You don’t post. Obviously, this is easy. You can’t think of anything, you have nothing scheduled, so you go watch Netflix. It’s fine, it’s what I was about to do.
- You power through. This I definitely have done when I have to have a post up. Sometimes there are blog tours, or reviews due by a certain date, whatever. I suppose it’s technically what’s happening here?
- The third option is that you are looking at me right now with disdain written all over your face because you have scheduled blog posts through sometime in mid-2019. Look, I get that some people have their shit together, but I am not those people.
And is one a better option than the other? I am not sure, I suppose that there are pros and cons to each. Posting equals content on your blog, which equals traffic, views, comments, etc. But if you post when you kind of have zero fucks to give… doesn’t it kind of show? I don’t know for sure- and this post is skewed obviously, because I already told you I was feeling “meh”.
