Blogging Insights — The Lockdown

Blogging insightsFor Dr. Tanya’s latest Blogging Insights question, she wants to know what, during this whole COVID-19 shelter-in-place mandate, we are doing to ‘repair’ (re-vamp or update) ourselves and our blog during the lockdown?

Okay, the truth is that I’ve been retired for three-plus years, so, for the most part, life has not changed all that much for me during the “lockdown.” Sure, over the past two months I haven’t been to a dine-in restaurant, gone to a movie theater, or visited a “non-essential” retail establishment. And I haven’t physically spent any time with my kids and their significant others, although we have been doing a lot of Zoom video calls.

And, sure, there have been some inconveniences, like running low on toilet paper and having add a generous tip in order to find someone to shop for and deliver the groceries I’ve had to order online. And the highlights of my days are when the UPS, FedEx, and Amazon delivery people drop off packages of things I ordered online and when the mailman delivers my mail.

But, as I said, my life has not been significantly different than it was before this pandemic hit. So with respect to my blog, I have made no repairs, done no revamping, and have not updated anything at all. Same theme, same prompts, and maybe fewer posts per day than before. But the fewer posts thing is more due to my January and February focus around the buying of a new house, the selling of my old house, the physical move to the new house, and to getting settled in the new house than to the lockdown.

So now that you’ve read all this, my short answer to Dr. Tanya’s question, “What are you doing to ‘repair’ (re-vamp or update) yourself and your blog during the lockdown?” is:

NOTHING!

    Me too. Tho my depression has deepened. I have so many projects I could do I just never get around to them. But I think I’ll make a list and maybe it will help me to schedule them?

        No kidding. And now you replied and made me remember to make a list… not. Or I could make my list here.

    I’m with you too. I ‘retired’ in 2007. I started my blog in 2013. I wonder if it’s correct to say it’s evolved more or less by involvement?

    I too carry on much as normal apart from a 3.5 walk every morning to make up for the fact that our gym is closed. With not eating out at all and walking my feet off every day, my BMI is down to 19. If they don’t lift the lock down soon, I may disappear altogether.
