For the past two months, the blogs have been really boring and stale. My theory on this?
We all have a case of the Summer Blogging Blahs (or SBB for short).
Last night I held my newest niece for the first time, and as she nestled into my arms and chest, slipping into the milk-induced post-feeding coma, I couldn’t help but look at her eyes; struggling to stay open. They were little slits opening and closing in perpetual slow-motion.
This is exactly how we all feel, in my opinion. We aren’t fresh and alive as we might feel after a restful night’s sleep. Our brains aren’t thinking on all cylinders. We are struggling to put together coherent thoughts, and trying to just make it through these dog days of summer.
Yesterday on the radio, I heard a report that lab tests on rats have confirmed that only a few straight days of eating a high fat diet actually makes you dumber. In other words; you are more lethargic, more prone to making mistakes, less in tune with your surroundings, and more apt to just fall over and sleep.
I think that is also true with heat and the summer season. We barely have the energy to just make it through the stuff we have to do.
When I log into my reader every morning, it appears that at least half of my blogging friends all decided to just take a summer hiatus from blogging. This is probably a good thing. It helps refresh their writing style, and when they come back, hopefully they will come back stronger than when they left… if they come back at all…
In the meantime, enjoy this – the one and only blog you have to read today.
