Premature Ejacublogging®

My tagline is Drink More Coffee, Do Stupid Things Faster. It’s appropriate because I can be pretty impulsive sometimes. I act then I think. Which is odd because I’m a Virgo and we’re usually anything BUT impulsive. But I’m on the Leo cusp, so maybe that’s where it comes from. (No, I’m not New Age-y Zen Chick—I couldn’t be more opposite, but I do find astrology fascinating.)

At any rate, I’ve recently noticed a pattern to my blogging. I’ll have a couple of ideas, type them up and post them quickly. Sometimes I’ll go a couple of day without writing. And then—bam!—I’ll write three posts in 24 hours. It’s the total opposite of how I write for freelance assignments. I’m a muller. I will think forever about what I want to say and how I want to say it. Bill calls it procrastinating. But when I sit down to actually write, I usually have it figured out.

But blogging is different. There’s an instant gratification that you don’t normally get from regular writing. “I have a thought! Everyone must know about it NOW!” Often I go back and re-read posts and wish I took even a few more minutes to look them over before they went up. I know I can edit them after the fact, but if someone happens to subscribe, they get notified 652 times.

So I’ve come up with a new term—Premature Ejacublogging®. I think I’m going to trademark it!

I’ll just tag my crazier posts with this, so you know whether or not you should waste your time! Or get a good laugh. Or wonder what I’m smoking.

What do you think?

  1. I hope you are happy:

    I have been saying “EJACUBLOGGING, EJACUBLOGGING” in my head since yesterday. It’s an awesome word! I love it!

    Although, sometimes I accidentally say “EJACUABLOBBING” which – ewe – I think is a whole different problem.

  2. I hate it when that happens.
