As you can see, I take this blogging thing very seriously.
Sorry. Distracted by the sound of the jug boiling and realised I was due for my pre-siesta cold latte.
Okay, back to blogging.
To be frank, I don’t know how regular bloggers do it. There are a few I follow, mainly to see if they have tips for organising their lives enough to balance world domination with 3-kid bedtime. There is a whole BUNCH of crazy people out there who swear by menu planning, green smoothies, sewing your own clothes, home schooling, and re-decorating the house with homemade lampshades, all before the school pick-up.
And while most of them are publishing blog posts 2/3 times a week, NONE of them are giving up the secrets as to how the hell they do it.
Take my timeline, for example – have a look over to the right here ———————————>
You can see months/years where you can do a quick search on a blog post. See where it says March 2015 and then under it says December 2014? Yep – I took a hiatus. Not a planned, blow up a French-Polynesian island and then laugh about it by the pool in Southern California type of hiatus. I’m talking more along the lines of “cleaned up multiple child-illness events, attended way too many early Nipper starts on Sunday mornings, and survived back-to-school preparations with all kids maintaining a moderate life expectancy” type of hiatus.
The type where it is quite clear to any reader here that I am typing this for shit/giggles and basic information-sharing on the dreams of taking over the world.
Getting paid for blogs? Who has time for that?
The next 6 months are going to be interesting – here’s my “planning”:
- Attempt a return to ‘regular’ Forensic Fridays
- Attempt a return to ‘regular’ EG Parent Awards (though, you’ve gotta help me on this one and show me some EG Parenting!)
- Festival of Chocolate
- Sydney BrickShow
- Free Comic Book Day – yes, we are cosplaying
- SupaNova – yes, we are cosplaying
- OzComicCon – yes, we are cosplaying (see a trend here?)
- and finally, an attempt to take-over a neighbouring country. This current location has a few too many crazies. Let’s see what’s on offer abroad.
All this, and continue training the spawnlings for world domination. How the hell am I doing this again? Where is the time for sleep?
Though, if Sinister continues to build contraptions to hang Zaltu up around the house, I may find a spare day to catch up on that cup of coffee…
