My new office
For a little bit at least. My goal for today was to start stockpiling articles for y’all (bloggers do this, who knew?) but I just had to get out of the house.
Solution: Pack up my laptop and go to McDonald’s, where for the price of a large Diet Coke ($1.97) I can sit for however long and use the free Wifi. Not a bad deal, I believe, as I can avail myself of free refills and write for as long as I like without being distracted by all the undone chores staring at me at home.
But back to stockpiling posts…I read about this early on when I was researching starting a blog. Basically, it’s keeping a bunch of posts in reserve and either just having them handy for push-button posting or their posting date can actually be scheduled.
I don’t think it’s a bad idea, but the idea of putting out content that I didn’t freshly write doesn’t appeal to me. It feels a little contrived and artificial and that’s not what I wanted this blog to be about.
On the other hand, though, it would be a really useful way to blog-I would always have something for you.
I think there’s a middle ground with it, so I’ll try it for a bit and see how it goes. Y’all will have to weigh in and let me know what you think, ok?
Can you believe I already need a refill on Diet Coke? Sheesh!
