My new office

February 25, 2012

For a little bit at least. My goal for today was to start stockpiling articles for y’all (bloggers do this, who knew?)  but I just had to get out of the house.

Solution: Pack up my laptop and go to McDonald’s, where for the price of a large Diet Coke ($1.97) I can sit for however long and use the free Wifi.  Not a bad deal, I believe, as I can avail myself of free refills and write for as long as I like without being distracted by all the undone chores staring at me at home.

But back to stockpiling posts…I read about this early on when I was researching starting a blog. Basically, it’s keeping a bunch of posts in reserve and either just having them handy for push-button posting or their posting date can actually be scheduled.

I don’t think it’s a bad idea, but the idea of putting out content that I didn’t freshly write doesn’t appeal to me. It feels a little contrived and artificial and that’s not what I wanted this blog to be about.

On the other hand, though, it would be a really useful way to blog-I would always have something for you.

I think there’s a middle ground with it, so I’ll try it for a bit and see how it goes. Y’all will have to weigh in and let me know what you think, ok?

Can you believe I already need a refill on Diet Coke? Sheesh!

    As for the stockpiling, I think it’s ok so long as it’s relevant. I mean, you can talk about something that happened yesterday, last week, or even last month so long as it fits your mood and/or thought process(es) today. Good on you for doing your research, being crafty and resourceful, and for being a spendthrift while you’re at it!

    I’ve been known to escape to Panera from time to time, kick back with a (rare for me) coffee, and do a whole lot of nothing on the internet while not in my usual place. The change in scenery can be not only refreshing, but also just what you need to get those creative juices going sometimes.

    Good call on the McD’s!
