Sneak Preview or Ramblings of a Busy Blogger

I didn't have a post ready for today.

I was going to use the time I usually spend blogging reading other blogs and searching out new blogs for me to follow.

I blame the fact that I didn't have a post ready is because I have 100 post ideas floating around in my head (literally floating!) but have absolutely nothing to say.

Sorry but the cupcake sugar has made me ditzier than ever!

So I thought I could write a post about my 'Get Ya Pink On' Pink Ribbon Breakfast I am holding in a few weeks with all proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation but I want to wait till closer to the time and not just 'bash our a post' for the sake of it.


I could write a post about my 'To Do' list which is so long I have had to make another To Do list to remember to write the To Do list, but who wants to see another To Do List post?


I could write one of the four 'heavy' posts that I have been wanting to write about since starting my blog. About my Dad, my miscarriages, The IVF and the huge operation that Grotbag had to have on his head at 4 months old. But I don't have the emotional energy at the moment (see above re; To Do list) and want these to be great pieces of writing I will be proud of and so I need the time and head space to write them.


I could write about the fact that I miss my cousin Bling heaps as she has gone to the UK to visit family for 5 weeks. She left on Monday and I feel as if my right arm has been cut off. But it will make me too sad.


I could write about how I cope with my Husband working away 2 out of every 3 weeks with me being the majority parent to our two boys and how it works for our family with the pros and cons. But I know that there are single mums and army wives and widows and people that do it much harder than me so would feel a bit like I was preaching to the converted.


I could write about how much I love writing and blogging and that most of my day is thinking about blogs and what I can write about today with the words forming in my head only to leap out my ears by the time I am sitting in front of the computer screen. That I forgo doing washing, tidying up or rounding up the dust bunnies in favour of reading and commenting on my favourite blogs. I would love a WHOLE DAY where I could just write without interruptions and read every ones new posts and comment without watching the clock all day!


I could just write a post telling all who pass through that I didn't have a post ready for today and that as I sat down at the computer tonight the above is what I came up with. You could call it a 'sneak preview' or you could call it 'ramblings of a busy blogger'.

Either way ..... that's just ME!

I love how conflicted you are because I feel the same way daily! Thanks for a sneak peek into the inner workings of your mind. It was almost like being John Malkovich, ;-)

Check me out when you get a free moment,

Have a great weekend! ~Mandy

That One Mom said...

Sounds like you have a gajillion ideas! They all sound great.

I can only imagine having your partner away makes for difficult adjustments for you and your family! I don't think I could handle those frequent transitions.

Looking forward to see which writing path you take next!

Frogs in my formula said...

Great post. A lot of what you wrote resonated. I'm not sure how I found you but hello.

JennyMac said...

Get Ya Pink On sounds fantastic.

and 2 out of every 3 weeks? You need a cocktail Mama.

One Sassy Girl said...

Ha, I get it. I always knew I'd fail at daily posts so opted for sporadic postings. It works for me. Your random jottings here cracked me up.

Alicia said...

I have those days too. Feel free to be random, we loyal followers will still follow you. :-)

I love the new layout too. It looks great.

Dee said...

Aah a free spirit from Down Under. Love it.

Amy said...

Stopping by from SITS. You are so funny! Can you believe I had a dream the other night about thinking up a blog post? I call that slightly addicted. I love all your random thoughts and can't wait to see them develop into real posts... minus the to do list. That will make me a little too discouraged as mine hasn't been started yet.

I decided I like you enough to follow! Yup. Have a great weekend!

Widge said...

I dream about blogging too. hmmmmmmmm....

I wish i had as many ideas running around my head to blog about though, wow!

Katrina Chambers said...

Haha! Great post about nothing, but there was so much to read. Found you via SITS. Come over and visit - I am in Australia too :)

Fruitful Vine2 said...

Stopped by via SITS. I noticed you were the first one on roll call and decided to stop by and say congratulations!

I can so identify with wanting to have a WHOLE DAY where I could just write without interruptions and read every ones new posts and comment without watching the clock, and the housework that needs to be done. :)

But I guess life goes on and we have to do what we have to do. I had a nice visit here. Do have a wonderful week.

Yaya said...

I'm currently going through the Infertility and miscarriages....


Raising Z said...

I am constantly blogging in my head and have so many drafts in my post box it is not even funny! I think this post was just gave us a little window into your mind and all that is going through it. It sounds a lot like mine lately! Now onto my gigantic to do list :) Happy Sunday!

Susan Crabtree said...

I love your sense of humor! My hubby works a lot too & as the mother of two boys, I completely understand what its like.

Have a great giveaway this week for cool home accessories! Please stop by & visit:

Alice in Wonderland said...

Just popped over to say Hi, but I'm not quite sure how I got here! I recognise some of the names, and I did visit SITS my head is just full of blogging too, so I know how it feels! I loved the inner workings of your brain! Mine is like that quite often, but I have learned to live with it, and it does somehow arrange itself into some sort of order! But that is one of the secrets of the Universe, known only to women!
Stop by for a visit sometime!

Erin M. said...

Hi there,

I am stopping by from SITS and just read this post. We already have something in common---I struggled with infertility and went through two rounds of IVF myself.

It must be really hard to be the main parent around most of the time. Just because there are other people in similar or more difficult situations doesn't mean you don't have the right to complain and vent about it. So by all means, vent away!

I am so glad I stopped by and I can't wait to read more.

Diva Scrapper said...

Your random thoughts just kept me going...Stopping by from SITS. Have a great day!

Helen McGinn said...

Oh, I love it! I'm really looking forward to reading the variety of subjects you have to blog about in the future. x


i don't know if you noticed or not - but you just wrote a post lady! looks like you've got some good ones coming down the pipeline!

see you round like a rissole

my husband told me to say that

Stesha said...

I never know what to write about, but it sounds like you have some wonderful ideas.

Hugs and Mocha,

Amanda {My Life Badly Written} said...

Thank you for all your wonderful comments - it is lovely to wake up to them in the morning!!

I will be over to your blogs to have a look and read and can't wait to meet those I haven't met before!!

To my regular commentors LOVE YA LOADS!!

The Grown-Up Child said...

Hey, it's like your blog is getting a 'to do' list too! ;)

I love the new look. Awesome!

Don't worry, there's going to be times that life supersedes blogging. And that's a good thing. As much as we love blogging, we need to enjoy life too.

PS I can totally relate. I actually published a post simply linking to other posts of mine! At least you actually wrote one!

Holly Ann said...

That was a pretty good post for somebody who didn't have one ready... :-)

From blog to blog to blog... Found you... :-)
