(A little look into the brain of a woman who uses mowing the lawn to find some peace and quiet. Three hours on the lawn mower, and this is what my brain comes up with.*)
Lots of people blog. LOTS. Some, however can't be called Bloggers. They just aren't dedicated enough. They don't have that certain something that separates the Bloggers from the bloggers. If you want to know where you stand, take this little test. If you have done at least 10 of them, you, Dear, are a Blogger. With a capital B for Blimey! You might want to find yourself a self-help group.
You Can Call Yourself a Blogger if...
you know what CAPTCHA is, and you have strong feelings about it.
your kids make a huge mess, and you immediately reach for your camera.
someone has ever said to you, "I better not see that on the blog."
your husband gets on the computer and your three year old says, "Are you blogging?"
you categorize your friends as IRL or blog friend.
when you receive an award, your second (or first?) thought is, "Ugh. What are the rules?"
you are not above writing about a trip to the bathroom.
you use words like "blogosphere".
you can host a party without cleaning your house or making any food.
you get a little thrill when someone comments on your post.
you get irrationally excited when one of the popular girls comments on your post.
you curse the internet when it's down, not because you can't pay your bills, but because you can't get on your blog.
you've ever thought, "This is so dumb. Why am I wasting my time, working so hard, writing all of this when no one reads it and so many people are better and I'm not getting paid!?!"
you have said aloud, "I have to get this done before the link closes!" and your spouse looks at you like you have lost your everlovin mind.
And the thought that started this whole thing...
if you mow the grass along the driveway, knowing a mama turkey and her babies live in the trees along the drive, and are actually disappointed that Mama Turkey didn't attack you, because a turkey attack would be an awesome post!
*This post was REALLY funny when I was on the mower. On my couch, not so much. Published it anyway.
Have a lovely day!
