What To Do When You’re Too Busy To Write A Blog Post

10) Read other peoples’ blog posts! Especially helpful if you have some free time/need inspiration. 

9) Try to not procrastinate on all of the work that you have to do.

8) Procrastinate anyway. Netflix is particularly useful for this.

7) Think about the blog posts that you want to write in the future when you’re less busy.

6) Give up and finally write a funny blog post discussing how you’re too busy to write a blog post. 

5) Realize the irony, and continue writing.

4) Take for granted the precious free time that you have by fooling around on social media and other distractions. 

3) Spend half of the night stressing over the work you procrastinated on, and realize you’ve somehow become much busier than before. 

2) Realize that the initial work that you had to do wasn’t really that much work at all.

1) Realize how busy you now are because of your procrastination skills and because you are definitely now too busy. 

What To Do When Your Readers Think You Have Stopped Blogging

1. Start liking and commenting on their posts. Show that you care about what they write, rebuild your relationships.
2. Start writing drafts to finish and post in the near future. Nothing says that you’re back like a plan for your future. 
3. Explain why you left, something moving and exciting, like you were away for a few months traveling, or you were busy doing a big project. Now this doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what you were doing, but you get the idea.
4. Don’t tell anyone you’re planning to write again. Mystery is your middle name now. You’re like Beyoncé when she dropped her last album. 
5. Make it funny. Everyone loves a bit of humor. 
6. Add a witty quote or too about returning. Something like: 
“Most of American life consists of driving somewhere and then returning home, wondering why the hell you went. “–John Updike
The sappyier, the better. 
7. Promptly annouce your return on any/all social media platforms. Nothing says you’re truly back unless you’re bragging about it. 
8. Try to think of something cool/crazy to say here. At this point, most people have stopped reading, so you need something to get their attention back. WRITE IT IN CAPS. 
9. Hope that you’ve inspired someone to write a post like this, especially if they haven’t posted in a while too. 
and…
10. Write a post like this, because nothing says you’re back better than actually shoring up and writing something. Even if it’s not great, it’s yours, and you can always be proud of that. Trust me.
See you soon. 

Chapters 291 & 292: Plays

Happy Saturday!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!

Yesterday, I went to go see a play that several friends were in. The play was the “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” and it was AMAZING. The show is absolutely hilarious, and and excellent way to spend a Friday night. I highly recommend it 🙂
