One of the common comments regarding my blogging proliferation is “Oh, I’d have nothing to write, I don’t do enough to have anything to write about.” Usually, when someone brings up the subject of blogging, it means they are actually interested in doing a blog themselves. A whole bunch of people like the idea but see this invisible brick wall of having nothing to write about because they haven’t done “anything”.
Bobbins I say…
Just to prove these people wrong, I haven’t done anything of note today, and yet I’m still blogging. I haven’t planned anything, had any inspirations of stuff to write about and haven’t done anything exciting or adventurous. It is possible to make the mundane sound a bit more inciting though. Eg – I went to the vets to get them to sign something. But what? A thing that proves Elsie the superdog has all of her jabs up to date. Why? (I hear you ask..) so we can put her in the kennels on Friday so we can go on an overseas adventure. (see – intrigue, plot and cliff-hanger devices). I then went out for a walk and had a glass of cider. That on it’s own sounds dull, until I explain that it was cider on my last day of working from home at my current job. I went to the Blues Bar and sat outside. I made someones day by letting a young lady and her carer stroke Elsie (the superdog) and take photos of her. Tomorrow is the last day I’ll be in the office, but today, was the last ‘WFH’ day I may see for a while (and to be honest, I’ve not got a lot left to do anymore), so I decided to mark the auspiciousness of the occasion with a cheeky lunchtime pint. I could go on with reflective and slightly melancholic atmospherics, but I’ll leave it there.
Other things from today – I’ve seen x2 brilliant things on the internet. The first being this video from the wedding I photographed the other week (featuring a bit of timelapse I sent the videographer) ..
And the second thing was a simple instruction of something to do from my mate Dale.. He said..
1. Go to Youtube.
2. Play any video.
3. Pause it.
4. Type 1980.
5. Press play.
6. You’re welcome.
Well worth a try. Give it a go.
