I Really Need to Stop Reading My Old Blog Drafts

Once again, I have managed to baffle the crap out of myself by looking through my blog drafts. There are hundreds of blog drafts and each time I open one, it’s like jumping through the looking glass and finding myself in a labyrinth that is equal parts Hogwarts, Narnia, and Middle Earth. But like, if all of those places has been horribly mangled in a Nurti-Ninja and then laid out to dry on the surface of the sun.

I only had the courage to open one draft and it was titled “The adventures of Girl on the Contrary and Walter”. Who the hell is Walter? I don’t know who Walter is. Walter is a complete stranger to me and this has led me to believe that Walter was a once imaginary friend that I have eternal sunshine-d out of my memory. What did you do to me imaginary friend Walter that was so bad that I had to erase you from my memory? Did you eat the last breakfast taco? I bet it was that.

And now Captain Thoughtful has reminded me that “Walter” was what I named a My Little Pony that I was going to carry around with me and take pictures with, but never actually did.

I’m not sure which scenario is worse to be honest.

  1. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still
    new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time
    blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

    1. Thank you very much! Sorry my blog ate your comment, it does that sometimes, it’s a very hungry blog.

      As for blogging tips, I’m afraid I don’t have many good ones. I sort of just write about whatever makes me laugh or makes me feel a thing I want to share. I guess the biggest tip I have is just to write whatever you want and do it because you like writing it. Enjoy the process and let it feed your creativity.

  2. Interesting read. I’m sure you had a lovely childhood. Coz I believe people who imagine & understand imaginations must have had an awesome childhood. πŸ™‚

    Ever since Amelie, where she did that with a garden gnome, I’ve wanted to take a cute little tchotchke on adventures and take pictures of it!

  4. hahaha! That is awesome! I have a real, full sized stuffed turkey in full strut on a log in my living room named Walter if that makes you feel any better. I’d rather have a My Little Pony though….

  5. This was a cute post…how many times the forgotten Walters in our blogging have stirred new thought as to why we do things the way we do. I truly enjoyed your post.

  6. My old drafts are all full of gusto and promise. When I read them I think, “Oooh, that was going to be good. I should finish it,” immediately followed by, “Nah, I think I’ll have a snack instead.”

      1. Go to my instagram @treansy and check out how ridiculously adorable he is. I’ll even re-post a great Walter shot just for you. You guys can be pen pals. He’s a real good writer.
