Hi One Mixed Bag readers!
I’m Nina, as in Artsynina. I blog about all sorts of crap (like Bernie), but most importantly, just like you, I LOVE reading Bernie. When she asked me to guest post for her as she makes her way to her home state of Minnesota (also MY home state), I jumped at the chance. I shouted with glee and pumped my fist in the air; woo hoo!
And then I thought… What the heck am I going to write about?
After a day of mulling over different ideas, I arrived with one common thought: HUMOR. Bernie writes humor. One Mixed Bag readers come for humor. I need to deliver humor. *gulp*
So I would like to talk to you about Blogger Butt. I cannot say that I coined that term, no-sir-ee, but I have certainly been defining the phrase. All of those hours spent crafting some witty post, editing pictures, and then linking it anywhere and everywhere have been taking a toll on my ass.The grooves on the couch cushion are from networking on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. When the button popped off my shorts I blamed my Etsy shop. When I noticed an extra roll or two around my middle, I thought that surely it must be from skimming through a vast sea of daily blogs. As I StumbleUpon random articles, my husband is stumbling over the extra girth of my backside. It’s true!
I had no idea that being a blogger came with side effects. It’s not as if I work in a pastry shop sampling truffles all day. Sheesh. But I need to face the obvious truth; Blogger Butt has bit me in the ass.
Along with Blogger Butt, I think I have contracted Leaving Lame Comments and Google Reader Hyperactivity. Maybe I even have a slight case of Housework Evasion, which inflames Blogger Butt and Google Reader Hyperactivity. The only thing that causes Lame Comments is a lame commenter.
Damnit. I need Doctor!
I’ve been thinking about how to battle the Blogger Butt Bulge. I’ve read that other sufferers have started blogging while standing up. I like that idea; not only does it get me off my arse, but toddler hands would be unable to reach my laptop and change the view to portrait (oh yes, one time I had to hold my laptop sideways to read it because my kid hit some random sequence of keys). Of course there is exercise and eating right. But who has time for that?! I need to write that next blog!
So… have YOU come down with a case of Blogger Butt?
PS – I googled big butt, blogger butt and couch butt grooves without finding a suitable picture. Then I realized I could use MY OWN BUTT! I like to keep it real like that. Notice how my butt is eclipsing my child’s head. It’s That Big.
