8 posts sitting in my drafts folder

I want to start off by giving credit where it's due. The other day I was sitting down to do my daily blog reading just going down my bloglovin' feed marking boring looking posts as read (come on, you know you do it too) and reading the rest. I got to Friday Morning Buzz and obviously had to read it because it's one of my favorite daily reads. I've got a bit of a blog crush on this girl, and I think it's because when I started reading her she was a journalist and only lived like an hour away. Then she went through a job search (you know at the same time I was going through mine) and now she does PR and lives in Florida and I'm still slightly obsessed and want to be her in a total noncreepy way. Basically what I'm trying to say is I stole this idea from Tami's post and if you don't already read her blog, you should.

The Drafts Folder. Every blogger has one, and I'd like to think they're all as embarrassing as mine. You're sitting at your computer and have this wonderful bright shiny idea for a future post so you write it down, except over time your "best blog post ever" idea turns more icky than a penny sitting on the floor of a men's bathroom in a football stadium. Today I've decided to swallow my pride and share a list of a few of these with you.

1. "The Best Karaoke Songs" - this is not to be confused with the other similarly titled draft post "karaoke." Clearly this is a topic where I think my readers will benefit from what I have to say.
2. Five different posts about food - I guess I spend too much time blogging while I'm hungry? There are posts about both foods I love and ones I hate, even one about foods I'd like to try before I die
3. "Fanny Packs" - Warning: this post is actually going to happen. Be on the lookout for it, potentially next week
4. "Resting Bitch Face" - if you're one of the girls who suffers from this you understand my struggle. I think I planned to make this a funny post about times I'm actually thankful for this curse
5. "A letter to my Ex-potential employer" - this was a post written out of anger and frustration a year ago during my initial job search journey. I'd like to work on this one and publish it down the road because I think my frustrations were very relatable.
6. "an ode to the nap" - One of two things must have happened when I had this idea. I either A. had just woken up from a nap or B. desperately needed to take one
7. "A letter to my future husband" - this idea came from one of those "blog every day this month" challenges, which I clearly didn't complete since this post is still sitting in my drafts months later. But it's a good topic so maybe I'll finish writing it one day.
8. "I'm a nerd" - that's all this post says, no additional information to hint where I was going with this idea. Honestly this could have potentially been about so many things I'll probably never figure it out and eventually delete it.

What embarrassing posts are in your drafts folder?

PS: I'm linking up with Erica today


  1. Not going to lie, I am so excited to see your fanny packs post! And I think you should still do the "to my future husband" because I imagine it would be so sweet.

    Pick Your Beau

  2. I have a teeny fanny pack I rock when I go running, don't judge!

  3. Oh man...that ode to a nap! I'd write love songs and sonnets to naps. I LOVE THEM.

  4. Haha cute post idea! And I love Tami!

  5. Haha. You should get to writing out these posts! I have about 18 drafts. Yikes. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼

  6. I dont have any drafts... bc i usually just post whatever is in my head LOL

  7. A whole post about fanny packs! What! I am ashamed to say I have about 50 drafts...I have a lot of ideas!!!

  8. Cant wait to read about fanny packs! They are such a conversation piece!


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
