Because I am a housewife, these blogaholic tricks are limited to my experiences being home all day. Any working blogaholics should post their own tricks of the trade so that others may learn. We need to stick together. Blogaholics Unite!
It is best to shower and dress first thing. Be sure to take the time to look your best. I know there are days that only the pets see you, but it is best to be prepared for whatever life throws your way... the UPS man, a nosey neighbor, the Jehovah's Witnesses, or unexpected trips to the ER with loved ones.
Try to make good use of your time. You can easily be doing loads of laundry as you peruse through your favorite blogs. Set up a routine. Soon it will become second nature and you will hardly notice as your multi-tasking skills kick in and your productivity rises. Have set times in which you allow yourself to be on the computer. Realize that it is okay to not read every one's blog every day.
Use your computer time wisely and write your posts the day before. Use the post options. That is what they are there for. If you have a slow day... tuck some posts away in your drafts for those days when you just don't feel up to blogging or you have a busy morning ahead of you. Blogging need not be stressful! If you need a break take one. Your blog is whatever you want it to be.
However, if... say... you got in a little argument with your significant other the day before about how much time you are spending on the computer... and you get on the computer before taking a shower... and are horrified because even though you've been telling yourself you are going to get off... just. one. more. thing. And you are faint with hunger and look at the clock to discover it is 3 PM and you are STILL. IN. YOUR. JAMMIES. Here is what you need to do:
Quick! Run and take a shower! Make it quick! Forget things like shaving and lotion. There's not a lot of time.
Wear something you happen to know for a fact that your significant other likes on you. No sweats! Especially old worn out ones with holes in unmentionable places!
Flip your head upside down and dry your hair that way. You are going for the tousled look because it can be done quick. Flip your head up and shake it out... now spray it with loose hold spray. No heavy duty stuff today!
No time for full make-up. Little mascara... little color on the cheeks... and lip gloss.
DO NOT FORGET THE PERFUME!
Now, quickly tidy up. Make sure stuff that was lying around that morning is, at the very least, moved. You do not want the house to look exactly the same as it did when people left that morning.
Clean glass or shiny surfaces that have any smudges.
Light a candle.
Throw some food in a pot. Spaghetti is quick, easy and always a pleaser. Have already cooked and frozen meatballs on hand at all times! Garlic toast too!
When your beloved significant other arrives home... meet him at the door with a kiss.
