Round Ups Are Fun

Round ups really are fun, even if you don't know it. Well at the least they allow me to go another day without realizing my total lack of ideas. Well I have one idea, and I have a guest post. If I can record a podcast and come up with another idea then I fend off having to admit my failures for another week. Unless that counts as admitting failures. Whatever. I guess if you're still reading this, you might want to know what I posted about last week, unless you're someone that read every day (<3 to you) in which case, well I don't know. There's some original writing in here somewhere you can enjoy. It's not copying ideas if I'm copying my own. Behold my ultimate victory!

Well anyway, Monday was a surprise podcast about stuff I'm not even too sure about anymore. Oh that's right, I was talking about a lot of personal crap such as my total and utter lack of confidence which was leading to my lack of ideas for posts. It wasn't just that I didn't have any ideas, but that I felt like I couldn't do anything good with them anyway.

On Tuesday I did my first original post in a while in which I debated the pros and cons of ebooks over real books. Well really I was just saying that ebooks aren't all that bad, and was shedding some light on their pros. In the comments we came to the conclusion that while ebooks have some positive sides, they are no replacement for real books, and never should be. They're a substitute, not a replacement. Yes there's a difference.

Wednesday was a guest post by my good bloggin buddy Kbbudding writer, in which he shared a poem he wrote with us. Well he shared it with me and said I could share it with you.

Thursday was another podcast (that's right folks I did two in one week, don't get used to it) this time it was in two parts really. The first part was some more personal stuff, but then I picked back up and answered some questions set by the indistinctive writer, and a few set by you guys. Literally two. After some mild disappointment more questions popped up, so I might as well do another one. Really, if you have more questions, then do ask them. I don't want to do another one for a while.

Friday was about my most recent driving lesson in which even though things went wrong, I didn't let it get to me. I just picked myself up and tried again, and I do seem to be improving. My instructor is on holiday this week (again! driving instructing seems to be pretty damn lucrative) so I won't be able to fall back on writing about that this week. Shame.

Saturday I finally posted the next installment of Immortal Space after over a month. Which barely anyone read. Or at least commented on. Which makes me paranoid it was shit and people were being nice.

And on Sunday I took the chance to be lazy as fuck and do a post on Easter. Including crazy shit a crazy preacher told me. Yay!

So, there you have it. Overall it wasn't too bad a week. At least I don't think so.

  1. Oh...just write about the ideas you get even if you don't think they're "good." I read that Mark Zuckerburg, or however you spell his name, (the facebook guy)...that one of his kep beliefs or precepts or guiding rules whatchamacallit, is that (now i'm paraphrasing), "Don't worry about things being perfect the first go around." So basically I think what he is saying is he became a billionaire by releasing loads of crap to the public without first making sure it actually worked. Comedian Adam Sandler also seems to live by this creedo. He makes loads of silly movies and doesn't care if they are any good! Then he makes millions. Well, I bet your ideas are better than his. Just write them up and put them out there. You can always go back and edit, or change them later. I am going to try to write more myself, it just takes so much effort to overcome the depressiveness of everyday life before the creativity starts flowing. That's probably what you're going through too a bit. I don't know the exact cure...i'm just gonna keep chuggin' along like the little engine that could.

    1. Well we'll see how I do, but I think one of the last things I want to do, ever, is to emulate Mark Zuckerberg. That guy is just darkness incarnate.

  2. I've probably said this before but I like how you do this summary/ round up at the end of the week.
    I don't get to come on Blogger much these days so it's easier for me to visit the posts I missed when you order them like that, and I can choose which ones to read :D

  3. Write about all the dumb things people have said to you. If it's anything like what the priest said, the post should be pure gold.

  7. Round-ups are the snakes (for God) and clouds/bushes (for Mario Brothers spriters) of the blog world.

    LOL I wish I could do a round-up...but my format doesn't really work for that. x_X

    1. I think your blog might explode if you tried it. Plus you'd have to probably write about every blog you run, thus further raising the chances of explosions.

    sometimes, I really don't have time to post comment when I visit because I would only sneak out when my brother's doing something. haha

    1. Hehe well sometimes you play catch up, so it's all good :)

  9. Great round up. I always like getting a chance to play catch up since my blog reading time is scarcer and scarcer lately.

    Also, I laughed at the crazy preacher one. Can we stop trying to make a correlation between Jesus and the Easter Bunny/Easter eggs and just accept that hunting for chocolate filled eggs is something to keep little kids busy and has nothing to do with the religious aspect, at all?

    1. Hey you guys are the reason I chose to do it on a Monday. I don't think we'll ever move past that though. I'm surprised I've not seen them try to compare Santa to Jesus and say that Jesus used to deliver presents and then when he died he entrusted that to Santa.

  13. These roundups are awesome, since I never really get to blog as much as I want, this helps me review what I missed on your blog the days I could not get to it. Love em!

  14. i can't speak for others, but I didn't get a chance to post/read posts at all this weekend because of the holiday.

  15. I just caught up on everything and I found your peice on Friday especially exciting because it brought back some great memories. I remember when I first was learning to drive I almost hit a stop sign :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well that would probably cause you to stop, thus fulfilling the purpose of the sign :)
