I BLOG 5 days a week, unless something comes up over the weekend that’s important, like a UFO landing on the white house lawn! I usually get up around six, stumble over to my desk with a hot cup of coffee and run through the litany of web sites, to see what happened during the hours I was asleep. (Speaking of sleep, have you ever wondered why we do that? How does all of that work? No need to answer, just a rhetorical question!) I also scan a gazillion e-mails to see if there’s anything interesting there. You would be amazed at some of the e-mails I get. At times there on par with supermarket tabloids.
Then there’s the phenomena of what I have come to term as, “The Hunters.” These folks hunt down some of the most amazing stories and when one of their posts catch my eye and I BLOG on it, and I always give them credit, for hunting down the story. If the Hunters haven’t come up with anything, I find several stories that catch my eye and pick one to BLOG on.
Sometimes, as I’m going to bed I get an idea and run with that the next morning. It’s nice to be ahead of the game, as it were.
Starting at 7:00 I begin to BLOG and try to have the entry finished and uploaded before eight in the morning, P.S.T. However, that being said, this morning I have what you might call writers block or perhaps I should say, Bloggers Block? (I wonder if any one has used that yet?) I could BLOG about the North Korean ship that’s sailing toward Myan Mar with who knows what on board. Nuclear material? Weapons of mass distraction? (That’s not a typo) I could run with the July 4th, missile that the North Koreans are supposed to launch at Hawaii? Kin Jong Il, is living up to his last name… what a nut job. Then there’s the disruptions in Iran. Notice the rest of the Muslim world, mostly Sunni are very silent. From what I’m getting, the uprising is going to fizzle out and the status quo, will remain so…(Gee, that rhymes.) Of course when all else fails I could resort to Blogging about the coming great deception. Here’s an example. I went to UFO Digest – they post my articles on that site – and there was an article about why it was OK to use a Ouija board. The author babbled on about using the Ouija board to tap into the collective consciousness and some other new age, gobble-de-gook. I rolled my eyes and thought, It’s the blind leading the blind. I’m most likely going to write a rebuttal to his article and have the editor, at UFO Digest post it. But as I sit here, it’s now 8:34, I find that there’s so much to BLOG about that I really don’t have Bloggers Block, I have an overload of information and with that, I’ve short circuited myself. We have to admit that there’s so much information in what now is the 12 hour news cycle that it is almost impossible to keep up with it all. Our attention is like the spectators at a tennis match as our heads jerk from side to side, as we follow the bouncing ball, of the latest news story. I am just overwhelmed at what to BLOG about, so I’ve decided to say, NOW WHAT, and sort of take the morning off.
Yesterday’s post hit a nerve. We had lots of comments and I think it made people think about getting prepared. If you haven’t read that post, I would suggest reading it. Blessings to all and I’ll be back tomorrow with another BLOG! As Kip says in the now classic movie, Napoleon Dynamite, “peace – out!”
