Okaaaay (rolling my eyes)

pocket

The other day I had a friend over and I showed her my blog. Not sure, but I'm guessing it was probably her first experience w/a blog.

She scrolled through and said, "Um, you write about your unmade bed?"
Me: "Yeah."
Her: "And people want to read about that?"
Me: "....."

Funny to get a reality check like that. Yes, I blog nonsense. No, I don't know if people want to read the dregs of my brain (probably not). But it's my blog, so whatevs.

Thanks for reading my nonsense. I hope you're not bored (but if you are, I'm sorry.)

p.s. More nonsense for you: shopmaking is coming along slowly, but i'm having fun. Planning to launch this week.

It's funny, blogging to me is just a way to "put out there" what I'm thinking or doing. I *hope* someone is reading, but without comments I'm not sure. However I did read yesterday that some consider there to be blog etiquette and it says not to share certain things.....most of which I do LOL. Oh well. Blog away and enjoy yourself!

Hey, did you know that un-made beds are less likely to harbor bed bugs? That's why I never make mine. Ever. =)

I guess she just didn`t get it. Reading other peoples nonsense makes my own nonsense OK. Its like a support team for everyday`s simplistic events. It reassures me that is OK not to make the bed,after all aren't you just going to get right back in it and mess it up again?

I don't understand people who don't understand blogs:)

Tasha said...

Actually, we like it. Makes us feel more real. I just laughed reading this. I guess you have to blog to get it :)

Katie R said...

i like your nonsense :)

Kim said...

Haha, that's why only my husband knows that I started blogging: some people just don't get it... Keep writing!

Little Ol' Liz said...

Wow -- you found the very last person on the face of the earth that doesn't (yet) read Blogs. No wonder she doesn't get it.

I guess that means by showcasing your blog you've corrupted her. Now go forward blog like you've never blogged before!

That's why I love your blog!!

Miss Tiff said...

Olivia Jean said...

Just the other day I thought....you know I should blog more about the my everyday kinda things....I think it makes people connect with you on a more personal level....

SMDAZ said...

I love your little blog and look forward to reading to it. I am amazed at your sewing ... especially your new Juki ... which I have one like but have NOT mastered. Keep sharing!

Well did she see the rest? Like the stuff about the IT conference bag redone? It would put professionals who blog pure 'sense' to shame. I love the way you mix up the mundane with the serious. Thats what makes your work more human - more inspiring.

I kind of thought the whole idea of a blog is to write nonsense...Actually I think your blog is full of goodies, not nonsense. :) I don't get bored.

Jenny said...

FYI: I LoVe your blog

Estela said...

I'm enjoying your blog, nice to know someone else doesn't make their bed either...hehe. I try but my kids see it then decide they want to play on it.
Thanks for some great ideas.

Jantine said...

Just keep going, I love your nonsense;-)

Amber said...

blog etiquette? I better look into that. It didn't bother me that you talked about your bed. :) Heck...it's your blog! You said it perfectly, "Whatevs."

Shawn said...

Ha!! Love it! Your nonsense is so refreshing :o) Because I know that I really am full of silly nonsense...Was that someone I know?? (Hmmmmm...)

Marguerite Leahy said...

That is so funny. When I tell people I started a blog .... they say "what's that" and you already know that they aren't going to appreciate it! I also find those are people who have no hobbies and get bored. How do you ever get bored? I am at a loss.

Hello, I bumped into your blog by luck as I was searching for ways to make a bean bag chair for my 16 month old little boy and I find it so refreshingly interesting. So seriously, you don't have to apologize as you have all the freedom to write about anything because it's YOUR blog. If people are not interested, they can find other things to read. But anyway, love your handycrafts and keep em' coming!
