Random Thoughts 1 (5/16/17)

My brain is always “on”. It’s not really doing anything productive. It just wanders along.  I need some content. Why not share my wondering wanders on unsuspecting victims with you? To that end I began Random Thoughts. These are posts where I plop my thoughts. There’s no schedule. I could tweet this shit, but Twitter can be scary AF.

  • Can you post too much on Litsy? How many posts per day would constitute spamming?
  • When I’m linking a book, what should I use? Amazon? Goodreads? Publisher? Or do I even want to bother? (Because lazy.)
  • Is it OK that Slack completely overwhelms me?
  • There’s got to be a way to hide my blog stats. I need to protect myself from obsessing since THEY AREN’T IMPORTANT STOP SHOWING THEM TO ME.
  • I have no problem DNF-ing a print book or kindle. Why is it so hard for me to DNF an audiobook?
  • It’s ok if all I have is 10 minutes. I can’t interact with everyone every day. Dear self, repeat after you, BALANCE.
  • What the hell is the difference between page views and visitors? How is it even possible that they are different?
  • I like “pre-fab” posts (Like “It’s Monday!” and “Top Ten Tuesday”) It really helps me create content and find new blogs to read.
  • I’m pretty uncomfortable about self-promotion. I mean, I’m just rambling over here. What’s there to promote?

  1. I love reading your thoughts!– both on here and on Litsy! And I also hate DNFing audiobooks! Maybe it’s the sunk cost fallacy in action– like it takes so much time to listen to them that I feel like I have to finish (also, they’re expensive!).

    Also, re: page views vs. visitors: each visitor can go to multiple pages on your site (and so you can have multiple views per visitor).

    1. You rock! Thanks for answering the question about visitors vs page views.

      And I hear you in audiobook cost. I understand it, but it does make it harder to DNF. It’s easy to DNF that book I bought at the garage sale, but I will torture myself before I DNF an audiobook. I need to use my library more for audiobooks.
