The Mind of a Blogger

Actually probably just my mind. I would think I'm an atypical blogger, so I doubt many other people do things the way I do. Trying to follow what I do is probably a bad idea. I know many people out there do stuff like write their posts days in advance, edit them, check them over, and then make sure they're all formatted right before posting. I just kind of write most of mine minutes before they're posted, with only a limited amount of brainstorming. I sometimes have typos and bad formatting with my posts, but somehow it works out.

I get random ideas about stuff I could post while going about my day. I guess this is one of the few things I have in common with other bloggers. Sometimes I remember them until the time when I can write them down, but other times I know that I forgot a way I was going to say something that would have been funny. I’ve turned to keeping a notepad by my bed, because I usually have good ideas while lying there trying to go to sleep. Although many of the notes are written in the dark with my glasses off, and despite all the built-in night lights in my room it still looks like random chicken scratches in the morning.

Lights in my room at night; heater, cpu, keyboard, router/modem, phone
I also have two separate blog 'receptacles' that I keep on my desktop for adding blog ideas to. One is simply a notepad document where I pretty much write any phrase or topic to develop later, although these always take a while to bring out- I even have a couple from back when this blog started. The second is a word document that is full full half developed ideas, some random copy/pastas from different places, and other random stuff like this- (ノ゜Д゜)ノ. Sometimes It might even house a pre-written post if I’m feeling ambitious enough (but you know I rarely do this.)

Blogs always have their own atmosphere, but there are some things that every blog needs. Like a random tag. It’s always nice being able to thrown in something that doesn’t quite fit it, and still have it be accepted. I kind of abuse mine though, being that almost a quarter of my posts fall under this category. But as long as people laugh at what I write, no matter how offbeat it is, it’s cool.
