pret a post-ay

i have a confession to make. i've been a lazy girl. a very lazy girl.

i had a few extra hours on a saturday morning a few weeks ago and whipped up nearly a dozen posts and "saved as draft"ed them.

so for the past two weeks i've been logging in, adjusting the date and time and posting them.

is that wrong? do you feel cheated?

if so, too bad. i'm working 80 hour weeks and if i can't work this way, you're going to have to deal with a barely-there blogger. you'd have to get used to nearly-never bloglines updates.

but i'm starting to run out. i've got a few more drafted posts before i have to sit down and sweat some stuff out. so if the stuff i have is feeling stale...a new shipment is coming in.

10 people who played with me:

What a dedicated blogger. 80 hour weeks and still find the time to address your attentive audience. Your audience might feel cheated though. Maybe you shouldn't tell them your stuff is not that fresh. I work 80-100 a week and haven't checked my personal mail in 2 months so there are those out there that feel your pain. You might have to decide what's more important, your audience or your job. I would go with the audience that appreciates the privilege of reading your words on a regular bais. We out there rely on a fresh Jazz to hit us up with original non boilerplate posts. And the pics are nice too

I don't see any problem. I work on drafts a lot, I've got a nest egg of about 40. I think that means I'm anal-retentive.

no I don't feel cheated. just wish I was smart enough to think of that first.

you're as good pre-packaged as you are fresh.

You should be blogging because you enjoy it ... not because you feel you have to. If its not doing it for you, quit or go on hiatus until you have more time.

OR MAYBE.. there is some really scandalous stuff that's going on... and you're not ready to tell us so you're hiding behind the 'pret-a-posts" ey????

Or you could just do what I do… post every couple of weeks maybe… That tends to annoy the crap out of everyone that reads with any regularity, then before you know it, your readership has dwindled down to your mother and sister (assuming of course, you have a sister) and that’s that. I am a terrible example to follow. But my roommate and I have a new puppy, so that’s my excuse for the time being…
