Why I'm a Weird Blogger

So Jared captured me in my true blogging form recently, and I started to wonder if you all are weird as I am when it comes to the actual writing part of your blog. Do you have certain things you have to do, wear, listen to, eat, etc. while you blog?? Or am I the only weird one?

Now yes, occasionally I'll blog at work on my lunch break, or on super rare occasions I'll write half of a post on the tablet. For the most part though? I have to be in our office at home. I have to be in the most comfortable/ugly combination of clothes available. My Pandora station fluctuates on occasion, but mostly stays locked in on my Florence + The Machine station. I mean hello, she likes glitter and has great hair. She totally fits into the blogging world!
I, on the other hand, do not have great hair, particularly while blogging. My hair immediately must go up into the messiest tangle of a knot I can gather before I get started on a post. This hairstyle of mine is not to be confused with the official blogger knot.  I am just rockin' an Erin's-in-the-zone knot.

So my hair is up, my clothes are ten times too large, Florence is already making me feel a little trippy so the dancing certainly is what comes next. I'm not exaggerating this in any way, either. I dance my way through blog posts. Please don't stop reading since you just discovered how strange I really am, but it's true!  I am generally busting a move amidst the writing session.

And the last weird part of my blogging? The accessories. Jared has been known to walk into the office and sneak a picture or video of my get-up/dance move combination. Sometimes it's Sallie's glasses she's left here that I'm wearing and completely don't need. Sometimes it's a winter scarf (or two) because of how cold our house is. Jared's personal favorite has to be his work safety goggles that happened to be left by the keyboard one night. I mean, why not?!
Don't ask me why I feel the need to "accesorize" while I blog, but just know that it helps. Just know that these blog posts are brought to you courtesy of good music, messy hair and plastic goggles. You're welcome.

  3. I don't do anything particular, but that's mostly because I just blog when Quinn lets me. I love the goofy picture of you.

  4. Hahaha. This is priceless! I don't think I do anything weird. Although, I agree... XL clothes are a must for comfort!

  5. Whatever you need to do in order to be creative! Maybe I should try to accessorize.. you do such a great job!

  6. Well I'd say those safety goggles are werking for you and the blog!

  7. I'd be worried if you didn't blog with your hair up, comfy clothes, and without great dance breaks. I usually can do it while watching tv, except then I miss everything happening in the episode sooooo oops!

  8. Other than my preference to be at my desk when I blog I don't have any other thing I do consistently. My first thought when I started reading this is that you're like a superstitious football player when you blog. :)

  9. And I thought I couldn't love you even more than I already do! :) You're not weird, you're quirky, and that's why we make a great pair of frands!!

  10. Florence's pandora station is one of my fave! Fits all moods which I love. My internet has been down for a week and a half so I haven't been able to blog. I forgot what it feels like :)

  11. No weirdness for me... but I'm lol-ing over your goggles! Thanks for the smile :)

  12. I'm a weird blogger too. I sit in the bedroom and have pandora blaring. I guess I have this look when I am in the bloggin zone & the hubs knows not to talk to me.

  13. I, too, have a picture of myself in safety goggles! & yeah, my hair has to be up, I'm cuddled up in my favorite UnderArmour hoodie & the Highway on XM is blasting.

  14. I type up posts while watching Star Trek...so...I don't think this is weird at all.

  15. I usually sneak mine in at work during lunch but otherwise it happens on the weekend or after work were sweatpants are required and make up is not :)

  16. For me I am usually blogging on the sofa, under my London2012 duvet I won (I was a gamesmaker).

  17. HAHAH, you are too cute!! I'm usually on the couch trying not to knock Binky in the head with my laptop while Nate is watching TV and I'm definitely in comfy clothes :)

  18. HAHA, I love this. No weird accessorizing for me. But what I love most about this is you make it sound like you're a total mess but the office is completely organized and you have a planner out.

    ReplyDelete
  19. funny. we love you just the way you are ......... nice goggles sweet lol

  20. I have to be at the computer in our office too. Usually with something to eat in front of me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love it! Especially the random glasses.

    I always have a cup of coffee. Always always. And my planner, even if I'm not using it.

  22. This is awesome. Mostly because I also wear ridiculous things when I'm working. Anything belonging to B, any number of hair styles and always a pen in my ear. I don't even write physically a lot, but that pen in my ear makes me feel like an artist!

  23. We are all a bunch of weirdos. Isn't it great? I have to be in my pajamas. And, my hair always looks like that - blogger fail.

  25. I don't exactly have anything I tend to wear while I'm blogging, but I do usually have to be in a "Carrie Bradshaw" mindset - you know, when she's in her apartment writing up her new article and is all thoughtful and there's a voiceover going on? Yep, when I'm in that kind of mood, I'm in a blogging kind of mood!

  26. Oh my gosh, I'm totally inspired to start wearing accessories while I blog, LOL. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. hahaha. Hey, we all need to do what we have to do to get into our creative zone. I can't function to write a post if I'm not in the comfiest pjs on, whatever pandora station I'm feeling at the moment blasting with coffee and a notebook near by.

  28. YES YES YESSSSSS. Bahaha, we are so weird ;) I can't blog without music, my blankets, and my head scratch-er (its amazing...and gets my brain juices flowing...or something)!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haahahahaha this is hilarious!! Those glasses are way too sexy. I just can't handle it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I usually blog in my PJs but then again, that is usually what I have on when at my apartment!

    ReplyDelete
  31. dude! this cracks me up! I have to have a coffee when I sit down to write - I don't know why...I feel weird if I don't have one on hand. haha

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love this!!! Especially the dancing while blogging part! My hubs snapped a pic of me reading blogs last week. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I mean, this all seems normal enough to me! One time I wore my motorcycle helmet while blogging... I like to think it helped me focus WHILE keeping me safe from anything that could possibly fall from my ceiling.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This. Is. Awesome. :) Maybe if I accessorize more I will sit down and write a post all at once instead of getting distracted multiple times? Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haha - weirdo ;) But I love a good messy bun and oversized clothes. I mean if you're going to sit and blog, might as well be comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  36. HAHAHAHAHA! Blogging is very hazardous, thank Heavens you have safety goggles. I need to be sitting Indian style...even if I'm at my desk, and I feel way more inspired with a hot cup of coffee.

    ReplyDelete
  37. anything to be inspired! if i am writing a lazy post i am on the couch, slouched and on the laptop. if i am writing to get it done NOW i am in my office with perfect (not so perfect) sitting at my desk posture.

  38. The bust makes my small chest look full and is padded enough to do without a bra! It was packaged nicely and arrived BEFORE the expected arrival date!
