My blog got a little mention in The Age Melbourne Magazine today, and I was rather chuffed to see the word ‘Picklebums’ in print, in a ‘serious’ newspaper, especially along side some other really fabulous Melbourne bloggers.
Now I’ve known about this article for a while now, and I was planning on writing a super fabulous blog post today. A truly awesome post that would knock the socks off anyone who just might happen to drop by after reading the article.
I’ve been stressing about it all week. I’ve been tossing ideas and I’ve even written a few drafts. I’ve asked for suggestions from friends, family and fabulous bloggers alike, and written a few more drafts, but nothing I’ve written is right.
Sure, you’d probably all like to read a highly amusing tale about our viciously amorous ducks, or about how the line “studies show…” makes my brain explode, or some new ways to play with play dough, but none of those posts are The One.
That one post that will convince you all that my blog is worthy of being on that little list in The Age. That one post that will make you all subscribe to my feed, or like me on facebook or come back to read my blog again and again. None of those posts were totally, utterly, 100% perfect, and it was driving my insane!
So I did what any reasonable person would do.
I took my kids to the beach.
Because the sun was shining and life is too short to waste it worrying about the perfect blog post.
So if you happen to be an Age reader popping by for the first time, you’ll just have to imagine this is an incredibly insightful and witty post about something endearing, important or controversial. On second thoughts, scrap that idea… I don’t want to set you up to be disappointed if you decide to check out some of my other posts or if you come back and visit some time when I really do have something to say.
