How I Feel About What I Ate Wednesday

When it’s finally time for What I Ate Wednesday I feel like…

wiaw-feel-dancing

Then I sit down to write my post…

wiaw-feel-sit-down

And I rack my brain for a creative spin…

wiaw-feel-thinking

When nothing comes I just start writing…

wiaw-feel-typing

Pretty soon I’m done and it’s time to add pictures…

wiaw-feel-sad

Then I realize I must edit said pictures…

wiaw-feel-sad-2

Finally I put in all of the pictures and hit publish…

wiaw-feel-success

And the next morning I get up early to try and add my post to Jenn’s link-up first…

wiaw-feel-early

Somehow I always fail…

wiaw-feel-lose

And at least twenty other on-the-ball bloggers refresh just at the right time before me…

wiaw-feel-running

Finally I add my link and contemplate which picture to use…

wiaw-feel-headache-2

They are all so marvelous/terrible that it’s hard to pick…

Either way, I’m always self-conscious of the one I chose…

wiaw-feel-paranoid-2

Soon I start reading the other WIAWs by clicking on the best-looking food photos…

wiaw-feel-thumbs-up

If I haven’t eaten breakfast yet I’m like…

wiaw-feel-fridge

If I have eaten breakfast I’m like…

wiaw-feel-food

Then I have to go to work/school and must wait for the next time I can go on the computer to read more…

wiaw-feel-waiting

Finally it’s time…

wiaw-feel-time

And there are at least 100 more link-ups than the last time I checked…

wiaw-feel-big-eyes

Grabbing my supper I buckle down for a few minutes hours and make a nice-sized dent in the page of blogs…

wiaw-feel-popcorn

When reading the WIAW posts I think to myself…

wiaw-feel-awe

Then I go back to my own post and look it over…

wiaw-feel-embarassed

And promise to do a better job next week…

wiaw-feel-promise

Then Thursday comes…

wiaw-feel-fair

And I can’t believe that Wednesday has gone by so fast once again.

  1. I LOVE THIS! I used to use WIAW to find other bloggers although to be perfectly honest, I won’t eat 90% of what other people post so I sometimes get bored with them. I’m all about the creative spin though. And getting sucked in for hours. There’s always so many posts to read on Wednesdays!

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ I still sometimes use WIAW to find other bloggers and sometimes I’ll just click through looking for recipe ideas. Oh, and even though I’m being honest when I say something looks great, chances are I won’t make/eat what’s in their post because I either can’t/forget. Lol.

      I’ve been slacking on reading WIAW lately and have only been reading my bloglovin. Trying to get back into it though!

    • Thanks Jessie πŸ™‚ I don’t really have that much food-related posts to share since I’m not at home baking all of the time… and my meals are literally the same thing everyday, all day…

    • Sometimes in the morning I purposely skip over the posts that I know will be packed full of food pictures until AFTER I have breakfast πŸ˜‰ And when I saw that HP gif I just knew I had to include it!

  2. This was total genius. What a clever, funny, true and very apt WIAW. I loved it.
    By the way I got the top spot on WIAW today because I had the misfortune of being stuck on hold with customer support for 45 minutes this morning. Literally sitting there, doing nothing other than reading other blogs and sporadically refreshing Jenn’s page. Talk about luck.

      • I noticed your top spot… Congrats πŸ™‚ I actually refreshed at the exact right time too but when I tried to link-up it kept on telling me that I didn’t have a backlink… Which I clearly did 😦 Grr. Haha.

        Sorry to hear about the misfortune of customer support! Coming from a support rep now I can honestly say that we hate putting you on hold for that long just as much as you hate being on hold yourself πŸ˜‰

  3. I seriously want to be your best friend. I’ve never done a WIAW post because I don’t think mine can add up! I’m usually drooling over everyone’s blogs on Wednesday, so it was nice to be having a good laugh! You’re hilarious!

    • Hehe. I’m always looking for new friends πŸ™‚

      I’m pretty sure most of us feel the same way about our WIAW not ever stacking up. That’s why I wanted share this post- I think we all feel the same self-consciousness when hitting that final “publish” button. You should consider joining sometime!

  4. This is one of the greatest posts I’ve ever read! It’s hilarious and completely true – you totally described my Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning! Hope you don’t mind, but I’m totally including this post in my “Thursday Things” post for tomorrow!

  6. hahaha love this WIAW! totally me. one time i got the #2 spot. NO clue how that happened. i should have bought a lottery ticket that day as well πŸ™‚

    • I’ve gotten on the first line before and was super excited πŸ˜€ Actually, maybe just a tad too excited… But #2 is awesome. And yes to the lottery ticket— ride the lucky wave πŸ˜‰
