Blogging Blues, Highs and Lows
With the husband and children standing at the door, ready to go (and the dog though she wasn't going anywhere), I begged tehm for just 30 seconds to post my entry. I type in www.blogger.com and I time out. Site not responding. ... UHG!!!! No way to access my blog. *sniffle*sniffle*
Blogging is a dangerous sport. It's addicting and theraputic at the same time. A very bad combination in my book because at one end you can't help but want to blog -that need to express yourself- and at the other end you would rather pass up on a good movie or special time with friends and family to blog-- kind of anti-social. But you don't care because you'd rather be blogging.
You can't really break away from it. You can't run it like a day job because you think about it incessantly. You've always got a half-written entry (on-going) in your mind. YOu can't wait to get to the computer to post a new entry. You know you'd rather be blogging.
Then real life sets in.
Jobs, kids, meals and husband get in the way. Do you sacrifice your job? A tête-à-tête with the love of your life or do you throw sleep to the underachievers?
I don't know.
But what I do know is that this blogger 'incident' is not my first and nor will it be my last. Take for example the fact that I've been trying to get a BlogRolling list going for two months without sucess! Blogger just won't post mine. (so if you are looking for a link on my blog to yours, and don't see it, it's not because I don't want to link to you, it's Blogger pretending to post it!)
Granted I've less talent with the computer and Internet than with a 1/2 dozen eggs and some leftovers, but still they make all that stuff 'Idiot Friendly'. I don't know.
I know I need to switch. I need to move on to something like Typepad. My blogging mentor is coming tomorrow. She'll have a lot on her plate this weekend.
Until then, I'll have to try and post early in the day.
That was the bad news. The good news (pour moi) is that my daughter running a significant fever, I don't have to work today. *Yippy* So what have I planned for the day?
Guess. Go on I dare you! You know Id'd rather be blogging.
