Confessions

It is 10:20 am now. I have been sitting in front of my computer for about 2 hours, trying to decide what to write about and not being able to make up my mind. Do you get that sometimes? You have so many vague ideas, but can't quite grasp any of them? They are like mist, you can sort of see them, but when you try to grab them they evaporate. It is very annoying, let me tell ya.

Then I remembered that today is Humpday confession day with Kat, and I thought I could tell you some embarrassing things about myself. But then I saw that so many peeps already linked up, and felt like I'm the last one to the party, and why can't I ever get my shizz together in time like the other, better organized bloggers, and it's too late now - but here we are, an hour later after that silly thought, and I'm doing it anyway. Fashionably late.

As you all know, I love this blogging gig with all my heart. Even though I'm not doing it quite right. Most people seem to post in the mornings, so their readers can catch up on their morning commute, during breakfast or in the office during that first unproductive hour.
There are stats out there! I know because I read them. When to post (I believe it was the morning?) to get the most views; how many times and when to promote yourself on Twitter; and a bunch of other stuff, but by then I stopped reading.

Confession #1:
I sometimes dream of being "blog famous" (feel free to cringe), but I will never be the person with the scheduled posts, the organized timetable, and the baffling knowledge of how SEO works.
I can usually justify it with telling myself that I'm a free spirit, uninhibited and wild! But the truth is, I simply don't know quite how to go about it. Obscurity it is.

 Why can't I be famous like Brandon? (source)

Confession #2:
Twitter is baffling to me. What's the proper etiquette? For example, when someone tweets your post, what is the correct response? Do you favourite it? Thank the person? Do a happy dance in the privacy of your own home, but stay coolly silent on the internet? I simply don't know. Help!
In case I didn't react in the proper fashion (which is most likely the case), I want to apologize. Please know that it makes me feel very loved (and a bit blog famous) when someone does that!


Confession #3:
If someone brings in treats to work, I am the one who will greedily help herself to at least 3 way more than the socially acceptable one serving. But not in front of the same co-workers, are you crazy? I will have one, especially in the company of others. Then, half an hour later I will sneak back, and get some more. If nobody is around, I'll grab two. And don't think for a second that I have any qualms about taking the last piece. You snooze, you lose!

Confession #4:
I have an almost unhealthy obsession with my Corgi. I'm basically one of those annoying mothers who can't.stop.shutting.the.frigg up about their babies. I try to restrain myself in public (nobody likes a crazy person), but poor Richard gets to hear about her awesomeness all day every day. I mean, look at that cute face!

   
Confession #5:
I will forever scatter pictures that have nothing to do with the topic at hand through my posts. Because - well, no reason. I like pretty pictures, and can't always find a suitable context. So there!

Random photo, because flowers need to be photographed every single day.

Do you have anything you need to confess? Please do, so I'm not the last one! ;-)

  1. I absolutely love the flowers. What kind are they? I get like that some times but then at times I have way too much to say so I just schedule random post. some may not even make sense but it's ok.

  2. LOL about Twitter...I was wonder about that too but I just go with it, maybe a thank you but at the very least a favorite :) The re-tweet when you are mentioned is the most confusing, b/c some people re-tweet those but I'm just not sure. I've done it but it seems a little weird. I tell P all the time, that socializing online has made me socially awkward ;) I love the red tulips!! I hate days when I can't get thoughts to paper (which feels like most days for me). Very frustrating.

  4. Flowers are great scatter pics, no big deal.
    I also dream of being one of those famous bloggers but then remember that I have no idea what I am talking about half the time nor deal with scheduling posts, that is some cray cray shizz there. I would rather just share when I want too {singing in my head that song with cry if I want too}....
    Happy Hump Day girl!

  6. I too dream of being blog famous, but then realize that although I'm horribly OCD and my entire life is planned if I try to plan my writing I just end up staring at the screen!

    Loved the random tulip pictures, made my day that much better!

  7. Who hasn't dreamed of being blog famous? Anyone who says they haven't are totally lying. I am with you on Twitter, I don't get it either, so I just wing it. BUT I can tell you, it's a blog place to promote your blog. And I seriously just about spit out my water reading the confession about helping yourself to more treats than socially acceptable... girl I am SOOOOOOOOO guilty of this sometimes, too funny!!!

  8. Hahaha I'm totally with you on #3.. I always pig out on the treats when no one is looking. And I totally grab the last one too. It's very satisfying.. I must confess, that I fear being caught taking the last one.. like the door will open and I'll be caught with a bonbon or cookie in my mouth with the telling look in my eye.. eeeeks!

    I confess that I have had popcorn for dinner for the last 5 nights in a row. Not because i have nothing else, but because I love it!! Hahaha There, it's out there.
    hehe

  9. Haha! I'm all about my fur babies! And for Twitter I usually thank people for sharing my tweet. :)

  10. Haha I agree with your first two confessions. Blog fame would be awesome (I think?) though it brings out the haters out of the woodwork....Also, Twitter? I don't think I'll ever truly understand lol

  11. You're blog famous in my book! :)

    Gorgeous flower photos. I think you should share those whenever possible.

  12. SEO confuses the mess out of me. I don't even have the patience to figure it out.

  13. Yes! I think it is a necessary trait for all corgi owners to obsess over their fur babies. I'm the same way about mine - my phone is at the ready to snap pics whenever I am home with her.
