Anatomy of a Blog Post

One very recent, hot, morning…

my steel trap mind began to think about writing

a new blog post.

(My Thinking)


I need to write a new blog post.

I guess I could go out in the garage and see if I have anything I can paint,

like everyone else seems to do so successfully.

Those seem to be popular posts.

That all seems like a lot of trouble to me.

I guess I could organize my pantry cabinet and take pictures of that.

I think I’ll just shoot myself in the foot instead.


I could go outside in 90 degree heat and

‘blanket’ my roses in compost

and take a few pictures of that,

but they may start shouting,

“Stop! Not another thing,

do you hear me???”


I could go out in the garage

and take pictures of my treasure hunting finds like everyone else does.
They seem to find amazing things.


But then I would have to come face to face with the fact that I

spent money recently on a pair of OARs

and a deer horn mounting kit.

I think I’ll just write about this instead.

Get out of my head! I think all those things. And stare intently into the monitor as if something is going to appear magically on my blog!
then I post about some of the most random topics ever... and PEOPLE COMMENT! IT'S CRAZY...
writer block.

Have a great week.
Blessings~ Pat

Laura, what a perfect post in so many ways! It does sound like you have lots of company ~~~ including moi!


trash talk said...

When you're up a creek without a paddle...those oars will come in mighty handy!
P.S. Write whatever you still all music to my eyes.

This made me giggle because it is SO true! We all try so hard to impress, and what draws people to us is our individuality, NOT being like everyone else. Your blog is great! Chin up and one foot in front of the other :)

Laura, this made me laugh out loud.

Deb said...

you know I decided not to think too hard when I blog..just what ever pops into my head gets posted....and I might not be the most popular blog on the block...I have people that stop by regularly and I enjoy their comments and their blogs...and I love your blog....

Southern Gal said...

Ha! This is so true to most bloggers who don't fit the "category". I love those type bloggers, so keep on keeping on! I'm showing my age...
