Fun Fact ~ 4 a.m.

I don't know how fun it is, but most mornings I get up at 4 a.m. to type up my posts for the day, and do other blog housekeeping items.  Sometimes I have time to visit a few blogs, but not often.  Why so early?  I am naturally an early riser, but I think somewhere between 5:30 and 6 is my natural time to wake up.  At 4 I have to use an alarm clock.  I also proofread my posts in the morning.  Probably not such a good idea cause let me tell you I 'm not that great of a proofreader at 4 in the morning.

My day at work is pretty long.  I'm there from 8 and usually leave between 5:30 and 6, and quite frequently I have stuff to do after work.  Sometimes meeting friends, sometimes going to the studio, sometimes errands.  I read on the subway to and from work and for a little bit at night.  The bulk of my reading and blog visiting has to be on the weekend, otherwise I wouldn't get to do things like eat, do laundry, live, etc.  I usually go to bed around 10. The goal is to eventually have a reserve of posts that I can schedule during the days, but building up that reserve is another story entirely.  If I had time to do that I probably wouldn't be up writing at  in the morning. 4 a.m.

To make this a real fun fact, the number 4 key on my keyboard is super cranky.  I have to hit it an average of 2-3 times before it shows up.

What's your day like?  What time do you get started?

  1. My, how committed you are to make yourself get up that early and write posts. The effort you put forth shows in the quality of your blog. I enjoy your reviews very much.

  2. Oh wow. 4 am? That’s mighty early. Yikes. My day is fairly average, but I don’t need to wake up quite so early.
    One thing I do is reserve Sundays (or one Sunday every other week or two) and sit down to type up posts — reviews mainly — to be published throughout the week.
    Unfortunately, you have to really keep up with it because the posts can run out before you realize it. That’s about where I am right now, so this Sunday coming up is going to be that restocking period. LOL

  3. Well, Nicole, I’m one of those lucky people who start their day whenever they wake up. For me, that’s usually sometime between 7 and 8.

  4. 7 or 8? Even on the weekends I’m up. Obviously I don’t have to get up and blog but I’m up anyway between 5:30 and 6. 7-8 is sleeping in for me. I’m wondering what’s wrong or if I’m getting sick. But then between 12:30 and 2 I’m ready to nap.

  5. 4??????! No way!
