RIP, Frustration Friday

Frustration Friday started as a fun way to let off some steam. But the further we get into today’s political and cultural climate, the more Real my frustrations get. I don’t want to have a Frustration Friday post where I get bogged down in the existential crises facing our society right now, but those are most often the things I’m frustrated with.

So in light of the new year and the fact that I don’t want to get bogged down in an existential crisis, I think it’s time to put Frustration Friday on hiatus. (Never say never because I’m sure to be superficially frustrated one of these days.)

But I do still want to post regularly.

Once upon a time, I bought a domain name and uploaded a crapton of photos and then didn’t touch the site again for two months.

Lately, I’ve been super impressed with how well my friend Whitney manages her site, Wit & Travesty. Yesterday at lunch, we got to talking about how frustrating it can be to manage a site and come up with regular content, especially when you’re just starting out. She recommended picking a day of the week and coming up with a fun topic for that day, and she suggested “Frustration Fridays.”

If you know me at all, you know I’m always down for a good rant sesh. Buckle up, my dudes. It’s time for Frustration Friday.
