Share Your World — 05/16/2022

Melanie is bringing us mixed bag of questions for her Share Your World prompt today.

Do you become discouraged by the annual “Blogging Ennui” phenomenon that comes around every year? (Blogging ennui means a distinct slow down in writing and participation, which lasts an indefinite period of time).

To be honest, I wasn’t aware of anything called “blogging ennui.” Sure, I go through periods of times when I post less frequently, but who doesn’t? According to WordPress, I haven’t missed a day of publishing at least one post in 1,803 consecutive days. And so far this year alone, I have published 684 posts. Since today is the 136th day of 2022, that’s an average of five posts a day! So blogging ennui? Nope, I don’t think so.

If you were in a room filled with you and your doppelgänger and 2 billion dollars, what would you do? What do you think your doppelgänger would do?

I’d say, “Let’s split the money. A billion for you and a billion for me.” Since we are doppelgängers, I am sure he’d agree.

A building is burning. You have time to either save a child trapped inside or a valuable painting which you would then sell, using the money to save 20 children from starvation. What would you do and why?

As the old saying goes, “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,” so I’d save the child. I’d send in my doppelgänger to save the valuable painting.

What’s your opinion of yams or sweet potatoes?

Is there a difference? Well, no worries. I’m not a fan of either.

Please feel free to share an image of something that makes you smile!

    They’re different. I’ve tried both in Jamaican cooking. One I liked, the other was terrible.

    I read a book where a woman had the choice of saving her husband or saving a child. 😕

    A blogging ennui? That is a new one for me, but I guess with my decision to cut way back and catch up (if possible) on reading I am taking a break of sorts. I hope to return to normal … maybe if life ever becomes “normal” again. Good answers!

    Thank you Fandango for Sharing Your World. Nice truism you tossed in there…it made me smile certainly! 😀 Great answer to the burning building question…it’s just a doppelganger, so what’s the harm? Kobayashi Maru time. Excellent response and very clever!! I don’t care for sweet potatoes either, far too sweet if you were to ask me. Ugh. Blogging ennui is something I dreamed up myself and isn’t really a ‘thing’. It just describes the overall feel when the numbers drop (not that I’m watching the numbers). It’s good to know that it doesn’t hit everyone at the same time, so can be spread out a bit. We all have life impingements. Have a great week!
