The Morning After...A Blog Post

Well this is awkward.  I do the walk of shame to my computer.  I sit down to write a follow-up post to a previous successful post...on soup of all things.  I hate the morning after blog post.

The morning after post will never be as funny, and maybe people don't expect it to be, {or maybe they do?}and maybe I don't really care {but maybe I should, what's wrong with me?}.  Alas, I don't.  But nonetheless, no matter what I write, today it will be like you're reading the obituaries.  Death of a blog.  I can't very well follow up with something serious, and if I try to write something funny, it'll look like I'm trying too hard.  That would just be painful for the both of us.  So what is a writer to do?

I just called myself a writer, that's funny.  No really, I seriously laughed out loud.

Look, I'm just going to avoid the awkwardness for both of us and call this the buffer post.  You'll choke it down and the reality will hit you that I am indeed some sort of one hit wonder of the blog world and I'll be back to regular mediocrity tomorrow. No expectations from me; we're both adults.  Or at least I claim to be even though I rarely act as such.

We are NOT breaking up, I'm still going write, you're still going to read. We should just tuck that little post in our memory banks {or block it out} and remember the good times and the laughs, or dry heaves as it were. All good things must come to and end.

Thanks to all my loyal and wonderful blog friends.  This isn't the end, no, no.  I'm just a tweet away if you need me.  If you leave a comment, I'll call you reply; really I will.  More than likely you'll get better turnaround here than if you call me on the phone.  See you in a few days, I'll try to come up with something entertaining and much less soupy.

Alrighty.  Good talk.

Do you dread the morning after post?  Could be said for writing or reading.  Better yet, let's not talk about it anymore and tell me what you are looking forward to the most this week, or your favorite color or something.

  1. Actually, you could've followed it up with a post about your sex life, politics, religion, or some kind of rant. Usually, that's how bloggers try to keep the momentum going. Also, Uganda and kony2012 is hot right now. You know this, can't believe I just wrote out something you already know.

    Anywho...dogtopus soup. Still love that post. Btw, Never met a post on your blog I didn't like. If that helps.

    1. I have ranty drafts about a Senator, but one is too emotional and the other has too much cursing. Already submitted a post about my sex life to a parent mag.

      Dogtopus will go down in history as one of the most fun posts ever though. Oh and ditto, by the way.

  2. I just don't know if Kony has the same roll off your tongue feel....as dogtopus does. I can't keep a straight face....I read this for two reasons...you wrote it & I really hoped it was about your sex life hahaha. I'm glad you acknowledged the after a good post faze...I haven't bounced back since 2009.

  3. Lol. I reeled you in with my fancy headline, huh? We can talk about my sex life...*crickets*. I got nothing. Yeah some days nothing feels quite right.

  4. Thanks for establishing that you are not a self one-upper. Sure it's entertaining, but then at some point, the funnier-than-the-last post becomes contrived and unbelievable ... you know, like Operation Repo and every other show on TRU TV :) On the other hand, just when you think you can't top yourself, you do!!

  5. That's true. My good posts always take 10 minutes to write. Inspiration hits and you go with it, I don't think you can force it. I've never seen Operation Repo, but most television stinks because of that very reason...one upping the drama, etc.

    1. Thanks, Kelsi, glad I'm not the only one. Now if I had more time to actually blog something, that'd be great...going to check out your new spot:)
