Blog Stats as a Procrastination Technique?

I just want to say that I get the biggest kick out of watching the blog stats.  Today there were a whopping 29 so far!  That’s the most ever, I think.  I have faithfully been watching the stats – so faithfully in fact that I am running out of time for writing.  Hummmm. 

Of course, watching stats isn’t the only way I’ve been procrastinating.  I’ve found over the past 10 years that I get more organizing done when I’ve promised myself I’ll write.  For instance, yesterday I went through three drawers of my file cabinet sorting through years of old papers.  I whittled it down to one drawer and leaving an empty drawer for writing “stuff” and one for bills.  Excellent!  Next I moved to the big free standing brown pantry/cupboard I use in my office.  I am 2/3 of the way through organizing that.  Wonderful!  I even found some letters my friend had her students write me after she read them a rough draft of my book a few years ago!  I just might have to put those on my website, www.doublecousins.net. (Rather, have my webmaster, aka my husband Bruce do it! )  But, no writing took place yesterday.  The closest I came to writing was starting to plan a presentation for the students at Newberry Elementary School.

Today did I write?  No, not yet.  Except for this of course!  BUT, my pantry has been completely organized thanks to the help of my husband… and a fit of procrastination.
