Bookmarkaholic

January 18, 2012

Hello. My name is Heather and I am a Bookmarkaholic.

 

You’re one too? Marvelous. Then you know my shame.

Let me start off by saying that I love to learn new things. I have various lists of all the things I want to do in many different places. These are the little things, not resolutions. Those are filed and cataloged for future historians and family history buffs to find.

Because I have so many interests, I subscribe to many, many blogs. Blogs about writing of course but also craft blogs, knitting blogs, movie blogs, funny blogs, blogs with awesome quotes, fashion blogs, lifestyle blogs, bookshelf love blogs, cooking blogs, Harry Potter blogs, writer blogs, etc. And when I find an article I like or a craft I want to do later, I bookmark it. Yes, I have quite a few folders to sort things. But where do I put the link to the awesome Cello Wars video so that I can find it again later? Where do I put the link with directions for an origami  kitten? Where do I put them?

Honestly, I don’t know if I’m ever going to make the perfect “filing” system. More than likely, I’m going to end up with The Very Mixed Up Files of Ms. Heather M. Muir (high five if you got that reference), with things stuffed in virtual folders that they don’t appear to belong in except for very cryptic reasons known only to me. And while most of the folders are full, as well as some of their own sub folders, I keep adding. And adding. And adding.

This is why I haven’t logged onto Pinterest more than three times.

It is far too addicting.

However, bringing this back to writing (and you were hoping I wouldn’t *tsktsk*), my bookmarkaholicism (say that three times fast) actually fuels my creativity. More often than not, I am inspired by something I have read, be it a review for Cinderella Ate My Daughter or a Post Secret postcard, I always have something to write about. I may not write about it for years. Maybe never. But all these ideas are filed away in the mixed up files of my mind. And eventually, they come to surface in strange combinations because brains are just awesome in that way.

Because to be a writer you need something to write about. This is why I do not recommend majoring in English if all you want to do is write. Must write a post on that. Later.

So here is my confession to you all. My name is Heather and I am a Bookmarkaholic. And proud. Because while it is very mixed up, it is very fun.
