My Brain Dead 5th Blogoversary

I wasn't going to post today and had explained why (see the italics below)and as I was about to hit 'publish' and the light bulb went off in my head and I said, "Holy Toledo!!!! It's my 5th Blogoversary!!!! Five years of holding forth on assorted nonsense!!! My undying thanks to all y'all for your friendship and support -- especially AQ, Joy, Ronni, Judy and Millie who have been with me the longest. I treasure all of you who visit here!!!!

That said I'm taking the day off. Here is why:

I have been staring at this blankety-blank-blank screen for hours; I've searched my folders and archives where I keep ideas. I checked my favorite news and 'Net sources and couldn't even find anything I liked on YouTube! There is zero, zilch and nada that I want to write about today. I don't know why but I can't. My alleged brain is empty and should be declared dead.

Sooooooooo I guess that this is as good as it gets today 'cause I'm going back to bed and pull the covers over my head and leave them there as long as it takes to wake up my poor damaged brain.

Hopefully, I'll have brain function later today and can get around to visit all y'all.

Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations, Kay! 5 years is quite an accomplishment! I've had my blog since Nov 20, 2006.

  2. Thanks for all your GREAT posts!
    Take the day off, you deserve it.

  3. Congratulations on your 5th anniversary!!

    It happens to the best of us. We just don't have any ideas or just need to take a break as I am doing now. Take a break, rest up and I'm sure you will com,e up with something soon.

    We know Ronni is taking a break. Judy is running out of ideas ( she put up something easy) There must be something in the" blogging air" this time of year.

    Just relax and have a happy and healthy NEW YEAR!!

  4. I think there should be a "Brain Dead Club" Kay. God only knows it would have a huge membership. Happy, Happy 5th Blogoversary. You are a joy to have in this community. Rest that brain well sweetie...we want you and your blog around for a long time to come. ~Joy xo

  5. Hey, we all have days like that. The brain needs a little downtime, and it's a good way to spend your blogaversary -- relaxing.

  11. I'm so glad you figured it out. We love you. Blank brain is ok too. I often have that, and am writing nothings myself. Hugs at you.

  20. Five years--congratulations, Kay. Eight for me although I'm not as faithful about writing as you are. I sure come up blank on some days for content. But, that's my perfectionism showing. Hang in there. You are one of my fav bloggers who make for a stimulating blogosphere.
