Ah, the drafts folder.
As a blogger there are times when the ideas flow freely and you can’t get enough. Then there are times where your mind is like barren wasteland, full of dirt and tumbleweed. And then there are times when you have a great idea, but you don’t quite have the motivation at the time to write them.
Thank goodness for drafts folders.
Thanks to Lisa over at Adventures of a Dream Catcher, I liked the idea of delving into said drafts folder to a) see all the ridiculous ideas I’ve had in the past, b) see if anything sparks my imagination and c) perhaps there’s something sitting in there that I haven’t shared yet that might actually interest you.
Let’s dive in shall we?
Behind the scenes | Anjali Kay Creations
Ironically, the top of the list is another Behind the Scenes post. This one for my etsy shop, Anjali Kay Creations. I had intended to take a few snaps of where I work, what my storage systems looks like etc etc.
Let’s Talk About | Hindsight
I got halfway through this Let’s Talk About post and lost steam. I think I wrote myself into a corner and couldn’t quite escape. I should have powered on through, in hindsight (see what I did there).
Let’s Talk About | Where You Never Thought You’d Be
The beginning of this post is me wondering why on earth I live in a city that I always declared I ‘would never live’. Never say never, I guess. Especially when it comes to actually publishing blog posts.
A Day in the Life of a Digital Librarian
Not technically what I am, but we still haven’t come up with a good enough job title for all the things I do at the library. Will gladly take ideas! My favourite one so far (although I haven’t quite convinced the boss) is Social Media Overlord.
Book Swap :: The Morning Gift, by Eva Ibbotson :: Swapped with Katiebell.me
This book collaboration with KatieBell.me is all set and ready to go. Just waiting on the other half of the post and then it’ll be headed your way! It’s a goodie!
Creating the Perfect Disco Outfit
Last year I hosted a disco for the community with some friends and it was awesome. One of things I found was people asking for costume and outfit advice – what to wear, where to get things from, ideas in general – so I took their questions and turned them into a post. A post that never saw the light of blogging day.
A letter to my blog and all the good times we’ve had.
The A-Z of Me
A wonderful list post to help you get to know me a little better. Again, still just sitting there waiting for me to get back to it.
Similar to The A-Z of Me, this is like a mini catalogue of the books in my personal library.
Misconceptions About Bloggers
Perhaps I was having a rant about what people think we do. It certainly starts off that way. This post definitely needs some calming down before it can be posted.
10 posts from the drafts folder that will remain that way until a) you guys want to read something from this list, or b) I have a sudden gust of wind come and blow away the tumbleweeds in my mind and I can take another look at them.
What do you guys think? If there’s something there that you’d actually like to read, please let me know! I will finish it especially for you!
If you’re a blogger too, what’s currently sitting your drafts folder?
