If you're one of my facebook friends, or if you read my blog post from last Friday, you'd know that I've had a sick house these past few days. It started with my little one who fell ill with Strep throat and possibly the flu. Then my husband, who had confirmed flu. Now my middle daughter is starting with a sore throat and fever. There's only two of us who remain - myself and my eldest daughter.
We're dropping like flies!
So, to beat the flu blues, I've come up with a list of the top 8 reasons why blogging is better than the flu.
#8 Bogging doesn't cause bed head. Unless of course you're blogging WITH bed head, then that's another story.
#7 Bogging doesn't make you sound like the adults on Charlie Brown cartoons (mwa, mwa, mwa, wah) when you talk through your stuffed up nose. Unless you accidentially bump your nose on the computer monitor straining to read the super tiny print somewhere on someone's blog that thought it would be funny to put small print somewhere, causing your nose to bleed so you have to hold it with a tissue while you talk.
#6 Bogging doesn't make your food taste bad. Unless you happen to read something gross that makes you want to hurl, then well, I can't control that.
#5 Blogging can be done without sound. Unless someone happens to post a video and in order to be polite you have to watch it and it just so happens to have a very loud segment of monkeys screeching.
#4 Blogging doesn't require doctor visits. Unless you get carpel tunnel, eyestrain or deep vein thrombosis.
#3 Blogging is free. Unless you have to go to a doctor appointment for that carpel tunnel, eyestrain or deep vein thrombosis.
#2 Blogging is painless. Unless....oh boy. Go see #'s 3 and 4.
And the number one reason that blogging is better than the flu....
#1 Blogging doesn't require anyone to see you! Unless you decide to skype or vlog, in which case, maybe you should have thought about that before you got sick.
Happy writing everyone! Stay healthy!
