I had set aside today to work on Bloggiesta and also on all the administrative things that have been piling up. Things like invoicing, which is a pretty important thing when you work for yourself, so I don’t know why preparing invoices usually tops my list of Things To Procrastinate.
One thing led to another, and I found myself designing a new invoice template. I’m not sure what possessed me, but there you have it. I just kind of decided to do it. That took me just about forever, because I’m not exactly the most proficient with a spreadsheet. I’d managed to get about half of my invoices prepared when I got an email from a client which basically added more work to a deadline I’d just finished up.
I gave up after that. Took a nice, long hot bath and then lay on my bed for a good half hour, just resting. The day had turned into a Not Getting Things Done day and I thought I might as well not resist it.
I did, however, come across something earlier today that I really liked, so it wasn’t a total waste of a day. It was a post on Seth Godin’s blog called You are what you share. There was one quote from the post that I liked in particular, so much so that I quickly posted it to Tumblr. And then decided to make a picture quote out of it for today’s post.
I think it’s an apt quote for book bloggers every where – after all, isn’t that what we’re saying every time we blog about a book we loved? “You really need to read this one!”
Now I’ll hit publish, and then pin the quote to my Pinterest board. It will make me feel halfway productive about today.
