Or, my many excuses on why I don't blog more often.

Well, here it's NaBloPoMo and I'm already out of the running. I like the idea of posting every day in November, but with my convoluted blog setup, it can be difficult for me to do so. (I can only blog from one computer. I have a grand plan to have my blog completely stored online so I can post from anywhere, but the Great Blog Redesign Project is waaaay down on the list of priorities right now.)

And if there are photos involved in the blog post? Argh. The process goes like this:

1. I have to locate the cable to connect my camera to the computer. That sometimes requires me to search in four different rooms in two different houses.

2. I import the pictures into the computer. I do this on a Mac so this is the one part of the process that's easy.

3. I have to weed out the bad pictures, which usually means I toss all of them and then go back and find the ones that are not as bad.

4. If I've kept any pictures of myself, I have to Photoshop out the red-eyes, double-chins, cowlicks, and any weird lumpiness.

5. I have to put the pictures in the blog and come up with something to say except "I got some pictures, see?"

Step 4 in particular is so time-consuming that it makes me put off the post for days. Which is why my Halloween post comes three days after Halloween, and six days after the party I went to.

I really would like to post more frequently and in a more timely fashion. I'm trying. I can't say I'll post every day but I'll try to do it more often this month, at least.

I think our good friend Sweatpantsmom said it best on her brilliant post, "Sweatpantsmom Reveals the Secrets of Blogging":
How much time do I need to devote to my blog?
Most of your waking hours that you aren't working, sleeping or going to the bathroom should be spent on your blog. Nobody likes a lazy blogger. In fact, before starting you should explain to friends and family members that you will no longer be available for lunches, parties or funerals. It's also a good idea to teach your children to cook and clean and to do their homework on their own because you won't want to be bothered with any of that.

You are way too thin to ever suffer from lumpiness, and we hate you for it.

I could never do NaBloPoMo. Besides the embarrassment of having to say 'NaBloPoMo' out loud, I can't get my act together enough to post more than twice a week. Okay, maybe three times of someone really pisses me off and I have to vent in front of a large audience.

(Thanks for the shout out!)
