You Know You Are A Slack Blogger When…

  • You can’t remember the password for your blog. Obviously I got in after a few tries. I’m practically a hacker.
  • Fellow bloggers contact you to see if you are alright/alive. (Thanks Charles! You are too sweet.)
  • You keep getting distracted by Scramble, making popcorn, organizing a closet to find a shoe, organizing apps into folders or anything else you can think of to avoid writing.
  • You weigh sleep in as most important at the moment. We all know bloggers don’t sleep.

HI! I’m hoping to get my mojo back soon and return. In the meantime you can find me on Facebook posting useless crap brilliant tidbits of inspiration live from the school pickup line. Stop by and say hi!

I will leave you with my newest guilty pleasure. @sarcasticrover
If you aren’t following him on Twitter, you must! He is hysterical and I have a huge crush on his sense of humor.

  1. Come on, get it going woman! I need more family stories to laugh at; it’s hard on my end when it’s just my wife and I. Look at my output; I’m tired! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. nice to have the humor back Melinda. Funny how difficult it has become to “hack” into our own accounts. Just like you, I just can’t remember 123 either – keep thinking its 133 or 132. One of my credit cards won’t even let me into my account so I could see how much I own them and unfortunately for them, I think the number is more than 123.

  3. Welcome back! Although we do talk on Facebook ๐Ÿ™‚

    However, I miss the tales of your family’s exploits as well, so get to posting!

    Although, I’m one to talk with my awful blogging schedule – but I’ll just be a hypocrite, I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hey there you are. Funny, I just started blogging and I find myself falling off the mark already. I need to stay on my game. Hope to see more posts from you soon.

    Take care. (I just found you on FaceBook)

  6. I think I need to do a follow-up post on “you know you are a slack commenter when..” you stop by a blog you always enjoyed reading only to find a post about them not posting in who knows how long because you haven’t been around to notice they haven’t been posting. ..and then I have to re-check myself into run-on-sentences anonymous – when I remember my password.

    I hope you get back on your blogging horse Melinda – it was always enjoyable even if I haven’t been as devoted a follower as you deserve.

  7. I personally get distracted pretty much ever 10 minutes when I’m working online, so yeah…
    I also don’t remember 80% of my passwords and accounts. Not becouse I have a bad memory, but because I’m paranoid and I almost never use the same password twice and its pretty hard to memorize all those accounts and passwords.

  8. We’re all guilty of slacking off occasionally ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And remembering passwords is totally overrated. We have software for that. Humans don’t need to store that information. It’s a waste of valuable brain resources that could be allocated to making vital life decisions like whether to have salty or sweet popcorn!

    Great to see you back ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Please…. you are not alone. I have actually forgotten the password on my blog twice over the last 2 years. SMH.

    Thanks for the smile.

  10. Like they always say, Melinda: “It’s better to be a live slacker than a dead blogger.” Well, they don’t always say it. In fact, probably no one has ever said it. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

    Did you find the shoe, at least?

    I like the Jeff Worthy tone, I have probably done all these at one time or another. You are right bloggers do not sleep. I have had an 8 hour sleep in over a year.

  12. I have been a total blogging LOSER! I’m sorry I didn’t send you an e-mail. ๐Ÿ™ Are you going to get back to blogging any time soon? I hope so! Thanks for the heads up about @sarcasticrover. I wasn’t following him before, but I am now!

    Although I can hardly ever remember my blog password and that’s because I leave myself logged in. when I try to get into my blog on another computer I panic as I scramble to remember it – and usually give up.

  17. Blogging is evil. Computers are evil.

    I came online to research an article for my own blog, got sucked into Youtube, abducted by Facebook and then found a site called “top 10 funny blogs” or something. Now I’m here laughing at your stuff and without noticing it 4 hours have gone by, I’ve burnt a cheesecake, missed the library and now I’m going to have to do my article tomorrow.

    Damn you and your funny yet compelling writing style ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. I’m pretty bad at all of these, Haha. Save for the closet shoe thing. My roommate puts the D in OCD, so our house has more order to it than I’d like. I find my biggest issue is starting up a post, and then after about five minutes of researching some content and links for it, I’ve somehow stumbled upon the quantum physics page of Wikipedia. Random researching is very dangerous..

  19. Well i have just started blogging and founded that i am kind of slow and whatever, but your blog really inspired me. There are people out here more slow, and lazy.

  20. Though i have commented already but this one is just because I saw something that’s unbelievable.

  23. This are really true, some bloggers don’t have the serious works with their blogs and they don’t took care of it. Others consider blogging as part of their day to day activity, others consider these as their craft, and others consider this as their way of generating economic gain.

  24. My issue is really having different blogs. There are times when 50 hours is just not enough

  32. Delightful read. I’ve been at that point where I just really didn’t want to pull a chair and write. My problem lay in what I was writing about though – I didn’t care enough about it. When I finally found my niche, it was a lot easier.
