If you give a blogger a cup of coffee, she’s going to ask for a cookie to go with it. Smelling the aroma of the coffee, she’ll ask for a five-minute break to enjoy it. When she sits down with her cookie and coffee, she’ll decide to check her Facebook. She’ll see 27 new notifications.

When she clicks on her notifications, she’ll “like” ten posts, comment on five photos, and respond to seven comments on her page, two messages, and two group posts inviting her to drop the link to her latest blog post. When she posts her link, she’ll look at five other bloggers’ sites and subscribe to two. When she subscribes, she’ll be directed to her email to confirm. When she checks her email, she’ll find 17 new messages and want to respond to five of them.

When she begins her responses, she’ll decide that she should send the emails from her website address and she’ll log into her webmail. She’ll realize that she hates her webmail and remembers a trick she read about setting up an alias to link it to Gmail. She’ll then google the directions and configure her webmail. While she’s in the settings, she’ll update her automatic signature and upload a more current photo to all of her Google accounts. When she returns to her inbox, she’ll see a request for her info for a sponsored post. When she reads the email, she’ll decide to quickly write a cover letter and update her media kit.

When she updates her media kit, she’ll find some new photos to highlight her popular recipe posts. Seeing the photos, she realizes that… she’s hungry. She’ll probably ask you for another cookie. And, chances are, if you give her another cookie, she’ll want a cup of coffee and five more minutes to go with it.

  1. I really enjoyed this post. I recently just started blogging and sharing my blog and this morning when I woke up and got my cup of coffee and sat down at my computer to check and clear notifications before my kids woke up, I had 45 notifications, and it took almost 2 full hours to get through each one, and here I am at the end of the day with triple the amount because of sharing, liking, reading commenting and everything else mentioned in your post! I really loved this short little article.
