As today is the first day back at school (for most teachers, anyway...I was back last week for a workshop), I have to look at what this blog entails.
It entails blogging.
Which is translated as "sitting on the couch with stupid reality television playing in the background, the laptop humming and making my legs sweat while I try to think of something to write."
And sticking in sideways pictures.
It's always difficult to maintain the momentum of a blog when you have a real job that takes you out of the house at 6:30 am and keeps you out until 4:00, at which time you stumble in and reach for the handy liquor right inside the front door. (Because I spend my day with 13 year olds. Which should entitle me to FREE liquor, but there you have it.) Last year, I tried blogging from work, but there wasn't time to really craft a post (meaning I didn't edit it for typos) and I am completely wiped out after dinner, so I can't engage my brain long enough to string together a complete sentence.
But then---voila--Cassie to the rescue!
Cassie told me how I can schedule my blogs ahead of time, so that when I get a post done early, Blogger will keep it safe until I'm ready to have it released into the blogosphere!
Well $hite! I wish I had known this before! Because I've been waiting for the time something is "due," sitting by the computer ready to push "Publish," like some kind of dork. (Which I am, and I have fully admitted to, but think of all the time I've wasted. However, I CAN tell you all about the Real Housewives of New Jersey, so I guess it's a trade-off.)
So instead of losing the followers I've gained (thanks, peeps!), I can keep the wheel turning and continue to wow you with my mad skillz.
