We’re at my in-laws right now. We left yesterday and we’ll be home early in the week. About five miles from home, I realized I had left my laptop – totally packed and ready for the trip – on the dining room chair. I feel lost. We didn’t turn around to get it.
I feel naked. I had plans for my laptop and I this weekend – actually for the next week. So many plans that involve freelance and blogging work (which is kind of like freelance.) I’m blogging from my in-laws computer (which just isn’t the same as my beloved laptop) and will be doing some work from my husband’s Macbook. Again. Not the same.
I have 3 books about blogging, and I’m about 1/3 of the way through one. Blog, Inc. You’d think that almost 10 years into this blogging business, I’d “get it.” I don’t. Not all of it. I didn’t set out to be a big blogger. I just want to have goals and figure out what I want to do next. I have ideas and I need to figure out how to make them work.
I’ll be reading a lot about blogging this weekend, and learning to work on a Mac. I’m so a PC person, by the way. I have a post due on Monday, though, and I must make things work so I don’t miss a deadline.
Are you a Mac or PC person? When was the last time you were forced to unplug?
Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This is the time where I spend 5 minutes free writing. I usually post this for Saturday morning, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen. It’s totally fine.
Want to participate? The rules….
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday or #SOCSunday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
