My god, even when i think i’m ahead i’m still behind. I have another song due for uploading in less than thirty minutes and i haven’t even read anyone else’s page in the last six hours. I suppose the price you pay for doing a people-intensive or creative blogathon project is that you really miss out on the fun of cruising around and keeping everyone awake. On the flipside, the people with topics to write about or those who are just blogging without a net run the danger of getting too caught up in the surfing to have anything to say. The perfect balance would be doing something creative but getting it done far in advance so all you have to do during the ‘thon is make the links go live. But, where’s the challenge in that?
If i make it to next year (god bless my soul), i think i’ll probably focus on mixing a solid album of material ahead of time so that i have much fewer slots to fill with guest appearances and requests. In the guest category, not having Gina available until today was both advantageous and detrimental; it worked out wonderfully because she got to record an entire EP of songs on the new mixer, but it was rough because it took a lot of time and left her songs all focused on the middle of the ‘thon instead of spread throughout. On the flipside, Lindsay was the perfect guest performer: she recorded one song in advance, one early this morning, and three in the thick of the Gina Sessions this evening.
Basically, i envy everyone else right now… i envy those bloggers who are chatting it up and having a good time, and i envy the people who are out and about or hosting parties. I’m stuck somewhere in between, and it’s pretty damned lonely.
