How Useful Must a Blog Post Be?

Oh, I am tired. I know, lots of people are tired. I am sure lots of them have done a lot more than I did today, probably smarter, better, more useful and productive things than me. Where was I going with this? Quick, throw in a picture.

I didn’t have a Monstrous Monday; is it too late for Mid-Week Monsters? I like monsters.

Sometimes I wish I was invisible. Then other times feel like I am. Perhaps some of you have had similar experiences.

I am really feeling sad about not being able to put captions on my pictures. I also feel a little stupid, because I feel sure other bloggers do not have such problems. In any case, this post is not the thrill I was hoping for. I think I will slap on a silly headline, call it Non-Sequitur Thursday, hit Publish, and drive on.

Why Not Monsters?

Yes, I am making another late post. It is Wednesday morning, and this is my Tired Tuesday Post. In my defense, I was tired! Oh, well, I guess I almost always am tired. I didn’t say it was a good excuse. Never mind that. Let’s get on with the post. Just to set the scene, I am ten-fingered typing on my ailing laptop. I really must improve my computer situation.

Well, I just discovered my Media Library is no easier to maneuver through on the laptop than it is on the Tablet. I wonder if there are any fun downloads on the laptop I could share. A picture or two so peps up a post.

Looks like the gang’s all here!

How fun is this one! My husband Steven must have downloaded it. He finds the best stuff. I know, it is no longer Monstrous Monday nor yet time for Mid-Week Monsters, but as you may have guessed, I do not have much today.

Artistic and romantic, no?

Here is another Steven must have recently downloaded. Unless I have computer ghosts or some unknown person has been breaking into my house for the sole purpose of downloading monster pictures on my laptop. One must consider all possibilities.

I must consider the possibility that I am running out of steam as a daily blogger. SAY IT AIN’T SO!!! I have been trying to have fewer of these foolish posts but without notable success. Full disclosure: they are kind of fun to write.

Monsters, Wine, or Whine?

Here I am, ready to make my Monstrous Monday Post. Will I be able to navigate my Media Library and find monster pictures to share? Will I be able to find new monster pictures? A little suspense adds interest to my post.

Here’s one of my favorites.

This was from my Media Library, shared as recently as March 1. First I looked at some of the free photos offered by WordPress. I found one I liked, but when I went to share it, I saw it had a caption telling who took the picture. I wasn’t clear on whether or not I was obligated to include this information so opted not to use the photo.

Who is this guy?

I liked the look of this one. A scary creature, an action shot, this peps up the post. I wish it would pep me up. I am so tired and wordless! I had a pretty crappy day. Of course most of my woes can be explained with the words Operator Error. So I must not complain.

Wait a minute! This isn’t a monster!

In fact, I have not had any wine this evening. I am sipping seltzer with lemon out of a wine glass, and that is almost as good. Additionally, I am not a fan of giving up. As the quote from the movie Galaxy Quest goes, “Never give up! Never surrender!”

However, perhaps the meme means to give it up for tonight, or to give up worrying about it. This calls for more philosophy than I am up for on a Monday. On the brighter side, I am over 250 words. I call that respectable. I’m going to shut up and hit Publish, before I really start to whine.

I Want My Mummy!

Hello, and welcome to another edition of Monstrous Monday. I’m wondering if it would overfill my Media Library to prowl the internet for some new beasts or creepy crawlies. Let’s find out.

Carl Laemmle knew from monsters.

One of my Facebook monster groups has Mummy Mondays. We see a lot of Boris Karloff, although there have been other mummies, most notably Christopher Lee.

Is that any way to treat your mummy?

I always wonder if you couldn’t just grab an end of the bandage and unwrap him. It would be worth a try, anyways.

Well, that’s that. I just tried to save another photo to this device, and my device told me I had insufficient memory. I’m sure there is a better way to do this, but I do not know it.

Oh dear, I am so dreadfully tired and not the least bit adept at this WordPress editor. There are now two big spaces waiting for me to insert an image. Will they leave big blank spaces when I hit Publish? I think I will hit Publish and see. I am beginning to feel a bit monstrous myself. Happy Monday, everyone.

New Year, New Monsters!

Full disclosure: I just now thought of that title, and now I have to look for some monsters. On the brighter side, it is often easier to download new than it is to scroll through my ever larger Media Library. It is getting a little out of control. Dare I say (wait for it), I’ve created a MONSTER!

Here are a couple more mugs I’d like for our collection. Yesterday I shared a picture of Snapped mugs. If I had not vowed not to scroll through my Media Library, I would throw in the picture of theDeadly Women mug I covet.

Here is a monster that is new to me. I do not know what movie this is from and do not know how to research such a thing. It showed up under Public Photos when I searched “monsters.”

He’s scary!

I have not added a new picture of Nosteratu in a long time. Regular readers know he’s my favorite.

She so pretty!

As I looked at monster pictures, I realize the dearth of female monsters. When I search “female monsters” I got a bunch of scantily clad hotties. This could start a whole new discussion which I am quite frankly not up for.

This has given me an inspiration. I should write a horror novel with a female monster. Yes, yes, I am sure it has been done. However, it has obviously not been done enough. Can I add to literature thusly? I’ll let you know how I make out.

 

Sometimes Monsters Help

I do not know why I feel so tired. I have accomplished very little today, and even less in the area of writing. I know, the only thing to do is to pick up a pen and write. Or a stylus and start picking out one letter at a time. So this is my Wrist to Forehead Sunday Post.

“Follow me! To the Graveyard!”

I throw in a picture to pep things up. I love this shot of Elliott Ghoul. The reflection makes it look like he is holding a Santa Claus doll. My Christmas decorations stay up till at least January 6th. I would really like to have a fabulous 12th Night party, but this is clearly not the year for that.

Another favorite ghoul.

I loves me some Svengoolie. We watched a DVR’d episode earlier. I got some knitting done.

December 2019.

This post is becoming a little disjointed, but I guess I have kind of a spooky Christmas theme going on. Above is our skeleton Bonita, in last year’s Christmas outfit. In the background you can see Santa Claus and Darling Duck.

I am strongly tempted to grow my hair out.

One more Christmas monster picture. I wonder if I can blame today’s post on my Post-Christmas Letdown. Hmmm…. sounds like a lame-ass excuse to me. All I can do is hit Publish and hope for the best. As always, thank you for tuning in.

Monsters after Migraine

I look like one and feel like the other.

I am at the end (I hope) of a day long migraine but do not want to miss making a blog post. I thought I could manage a Throwback Thursday Post then thought it had been a while since I did monsters. How about Throwback Monsters? It! Could! Work! (That is a quote from Young Frankenstein, in case you didn’t know.)

“This is a good boy!”

I can tell I am getting old, because I can remember when Young Frankenstein was in theatres, and now it is an old movie. Perhaps we could substitute the term “vintage.”

“Who me? Old?”

Here is an even more vintage monster, my favorite, Nosferatu. He is scary, yes.

“Swimming, anyone?”

My post is becoming increasingly random as I just look for monsters and put them in. I say it is better than spending the entire post whining about my migraine. Is it? Discuss amongst yourselves.

Looking for Local Monsters

I promised myself a Monstrous Monday, and now I am sitting at my ailing laptop, typing with ten fingers — an unusual activity these days. I am still getting used to this new WordPress editor, and I must say, I am not a fan. But perhaps I will find things easier with an actual keyboard. We shall see.

Wait: monsters, not murder!

I peeked into our downloads and found this. My husband Steven used to have this movie poster hanging on his wall, so when videos first started to be a thing (that is a thing for us; as always we are slow to get into the new technology), I got him the video of it for Christmas. It has been one of our go to movies ever since. But I stray from my stated theme of the day.

He’s a charming fellow.

Having discovered I no longer know how to download photos from Facebook, I retreated to my Media Library. Here is a ghoul from Pumpkin Junction in Sauquoit. See, I can even plug a local business on Monstrous Monday!

I think these are friends with the other.

Here is another picture. I have visited Pumpkin Junction three times this Halloween season. I do not rule out making it four.

“Let me out!”

Here is a skeleton (or rather parts of one) I purchased on my first visit to the Junction. I immediately put him in my front yard. I did not decorate as thoroughly as I had hoped this year, but one does what one can.

Pumpkin Junction is located at 2118 Graffenburg Rd., Sauquoit, NY. They are open daily till Halloween from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
