I hate when people say, “Wow, you write at home! You’re so lucky to have such an easy job.”
Excuse me while I first laugh, and then implode. Yes, I am lucky. I LOVE what I do. It’s not easy though. The good thing about the statement above is that at least the person, while not very knowledgeable, is being straight forward. It’s the off-handed comments that bug me more. The whole, “You can take time off whenever”, or “Work in your pajama” comments. Those really irk me. To me, it always feels like the person is implying that I blog as a second thought, like I took blogging up so I can laze about. They might not mean it that way, but that’s how I feel.
Do bloggers really work in their pajamas? I don’t. Not ever. I simply work better and faster if I get dressed, brush my hair, and slap on some lip gloss. I feel more work-ready. If I stay in my pajamas I feel sort of lazy, and I find that I don’t blog as well.
What about you? Can clothing, or a lack there of, affect your blogging day?
