It’s fall, and I’m off-kilter

There’s a lot going on, and the early, cool nights, rain (YAY!!!), and relief from the relentless push of summer, has me just wanting to sleep. Sleep, sleep, sleep. I’ve been trying to come up with blogs posts, but I’ve run out of things to say about the work I do. Again. It’s frustrating because I know frequent blogging is essential for SEO. What can a body do, though?

Instead I’ve spent too much time, way too much time, on too many social media platforms: Twitter is a lot lately with COVID denial and politics; CounterSocial is cool and super friendly, but not a single person I know is on it; Tumblr for the pretty pictures and lots of ADHD and ASD posts; Instagram, well, the teakettle is still getting tons of likes (wtf?); then there’s blogs, websites, YouTube…the level of escapism from what I don’t want to do because I have not made a living doing what I want is at DefCon 1.

I’ve taken to quietly sending light to friends, family, and pets, and not pushing the marketing. I’m rereading some of the Discworld series (especially the ones centered around Death because he’s a favorite), put a bunch of books on hold at the library, removed apps from my phone to help me step away from being online constantly, and am trying to write more. In notebooks. Of which I have too many going at once. And telling myself over and over – and over – that I am NOT buying another planner for next year because I do not plan. Stop it already. Use the dang calendar hanging on the door. It served for decades and decades; step back from the planner trend, ok?

I’m trying to find my balance in this time of imbalance, and I don’t know about you, but it’s not going smooth. So for now I’ll just sit here in my fleece pajamas and my hoodie, listening to a thunderstorm on YouTube, and maybe take a nap.

I hope you’re all doing well.

With hope and love,

Pip 🐧

    Had to look up SEO. Not something it would ever have occurred to me to worry about.

    Agree about the planner. What do I have to plan? I have no life, anyway. Get up, survive, go back to bed. Don’t need a planner for that. LOL

      You’re supposed to worry about SEO when you trying to create a business; I have failed spectacularly at it. lol

        Just think of it as a work in progress, not a failure. 🙂
