Kübler-Ross Would Be Appalled – The Five Stages of Blogging

I laughed so hard, I got a cramp on my side.
Worse: It is all true. 😀

Denial
Upon seeing or experiencing some inanity or stupidity, the thought of “I cannot believe the AssHattery I am seeing here.”

Anger
“This shit is so FUBAR I must blog about it! To the Keyboard!”

Bargaining
After several hundred keystrokes, a handful of Google searches, a wiki-wander or three, missing out on going to lunch with the new receptionist, and a deadline looming for getting that new contract done and submitted- you make promises:
“Just 2 more paragraphs. And a link to that picture on fark.com…
Then I’ll get back to that proposal.”

Depression
On first proofread:
“What the f… Did a third grader write this?
Nope- A third grader would have done a batter job.
Why do I even try? No one reads this shit anyway. Tam probably wrote about this weeks ago and probably did the job 10 times better.”

Acceptance

Fuck it. (presses send)
Like I said- no one reads my shit anyway.
Who gives a shit. At least it’s free ice cream.

  1. I’m pretty sure every internet author goes through a similar five-stage process in at least some of their works. I can tell you for a fact that I do go through those stages on what I write to varying degrees.

    Exception possibly for fangirl and fanboi fanfiction authors, who are convinced of their literary superiority. Sturgeon’s Law. Just… Sturgeon’s Law. ‘Nuff said.

    God save us from the Fangirls, for they cannot be stopped by conventional means.
