So much for keeping up to date with the blog.
You know what I need?
I need a device or app or something that transforms my thoughts into a blog post. While I am in the middle of something exciting, I always have this blog “post” slowly constructing in my head.
It usually sounds like an exciting post and then when it is time I pen the thoughts down, it doesn’t sound as exciting as it should be. Bummer.
Yes, I should have a pen and paper with me at all times, BUT when I am living the moment, it seems a bit “bleargh” if I were to stop doing what I was doing, to pen down my thoughts. Plus, my memory is not as amazing as it should be. Argh!
So, I was introduced to an app called Day.re. It is amazing, most definitely. My gripe with it is that it is only available on mobile and I hate typing long texts on mobile. I love the clickey clackety sound my keyboard makes as words slowly form on my screen. Mobile just does not cut it for a writer, I suppose (pretentious, much?).
That, is also the problem I have with the WordPress app. I downloaded it with high hopes of constantly updating my blog, with the many adventures (big and small) that I have. But, again, the thought of penning down a post on mobile just turns me off.
I do not really have a laptop or PC at home. I am always either using my phone, my tablet or ipad, and in some more lazy situations, I am on my TV. Yeap, I surf the web, sometimes, with my TV. So, that is why it is harder to actually motivate me to write a blog post.
My laptop (Mr Ace R. Maze) died on me yonks ago and I haven’t really the time to send him off to be revived. He was my most trusted writing partner and I did not get to transfer most of my writing that are still left in him, only managed to transfer a few to the external hard drive. Which! Also, has been giving me problems of late. Damn technology, sometimes.
So, I actually need to move around my wish list a little bit. First off, get a damn PC or laptop (the TV was a buy that was meant to replace the need for a laptop/PC, which I did not think through, fully!). Wasn’t a cheap buy either! So a computer of sorts first (or fix Mr Ace R. Maze, whichever is friendlier on the wallet), then only can I think about getting my (D)SLR camera. Haizzzzzz… Been wanting an SLR for the longest time now, but I guess I have to prioritise my needs.
Well, look at me ranting. If I put in half this much effort to rant, you would think I could put in just as much (maybe a little more) to write a proper post. Especially since, I just came back on an adventure in Mystical Turkey (Türkiye) and a short little one in Fashionable Milan.
Do not even get me started on my lazy-ness at completing the Daily Post Challenge. That was a short lived dream, to say the least (if you count 3 posts as something even remotely considered as reaching a goal).
Alright then, I think I better stop it here. But, I will stop with a promise that, the blog post on my first day in Turkey will be up soon-ish.
If I can get on my WordPress! It’s been so long that I can’t seem to remember my log in details! Oh, I type my posts first on Microsoft Word before publishing it on WordPress (irrelevant information, really!).
Okies, finally in! Looking forward to penning down my “First Day in Turkey” post!
Till then, Happy Adventuring!
