FlogYoBlog Friday - The Funk Edition

No not this funk:

This funk:

Stole this pic from the lovely Fi from Calm Blue Ocean
The post-AusBlogCon funk.
My bags remain half unpacked, sitting on the kitchen floor where they landed straight off the flight. The only things that I've taken out are the smelly things, my makeup bag and the Lindt chocolate; you know, the important stuff.

I had the exact same feeling going back to work after my honeymoon. Everything had been geared toward this one massive event and then it was over. I was left with a massive void. What now?

At least after a honeymoon you have the whole making babies thing to fall back on...

But what is there post AusBlogCon? Twitter? It's a lowly substitute for horizontal tango, no matter what they say.

Wow, hear that? That's an awkward silence because I mentioned sex and Twitter in the same sentence. There is only one way to fix this. Let's Flog.

The Rules
(As stolen from Lori, thus making Baby Jesus cry... sorry)
  1. Follow Where's My Glow? 
  2. Bow down at the alter of Mummy Time; Blog-goddess, all round groovy gal and creator of FYBF
  3. Grab the FYBF button and post it on your sidebar or in the post you're linking up
  4. Link in your favourite/best post from the week
  5. Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the comment love)
  6. The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well)
  7. A new and fresh linky list will open every Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list does not carry over to the following week
  8. Because I live in Dullsville Perth the list will open around 7am AWST - I'm not getting up at 5am and the last time I scheduled a post it didn't work


After you've spread the comment love to your fellow Floggers, check out this list of AusBlogCon blog posts! I'll be reading them all to relive the entire weekend, then I'll go and cry in the corner
Glowless rocked the Aussie Bloggers Conference thanks to


  1. Wah I can't find where I put my Lindt chocolate ...
    Twitter has been abuzz this week.
    Thanks for hosting sorry we dragged out of bed so early and enjoy dinner with one of my favourite West Australians.

  2. Thanks for reminding me about the Lindt. Helping to calm down after the 75th tantrum since I've got home.

  3. I've unpacked my bag, ate my Lindt and begged Lindt to sponsor my attendance at next year's conference. I may yet be successful. Life is not the same post AusBlogCon.

  4. Ah see, I was smart. S-M-R-T... I mean.... (as Homer would say): We booked a family camping trip for next weekend. Unfortunately, in Melbourne, that means we are going to freeze our nuts off for three days solid, quite possibly in the wettest April we have seen for 150 years. Boo-yah!

  5. Ah, finally! A GOOD reason to not have attended the AusBlogCon... I have no funk!!

    Happy Friday Ms Glowness-ness. x

  6. The first thing I did when I got home was hide my Lindt so nobody could devour it before me! Don't get too down, there's always next year!

  7. I really want to go to ABC next year. Just to meet some of the fabulous peeps that I love reading about!

    Great to be here flogging mi blog! :D

  8. Ah shit - it's Friday and once again I don't have a post to flog. Story of my blogging life (despite vowing after AusBlogCon that I would make sure I would at least have a post to flog every week!)

    I'm lucky in that I've been able to throw myself into creating a fabulous cake for my cousins baby shower, which will give me something to blog about next week - but doesn't leave much time this week for blogging.

    Very impressed that your chocolate made it home! Mine got devoured on the Saturday night (after your wise suggestion!) - as it was Lachie sniffed out the Freddo within 5 minutes of me emptying the swag bag on my bed. So glad I'd eaten the evidence that there had been Lindt as well!

    Hope you get out of your funk soon Glowy xxx

  9. I am funky with a capital F right now. But at least I have my Floatie courtesy of your fine self xx

  10. Funny, my swag bag is still sitting untouched on my dining table. My kids were probably the only ones of all the attendees that didn't raid the bag ;)

  11. oh I am so with you.. have totally crashed into a dark pit of despair after the weekend.... coming out of it slowly but surely, but it still sucks!

  12. OK, so now I want chocolate... That'll be my reward for reading a heap of this week's FYBF posts. Any excuse! :)

  13. I just love your finishing paragraph. You make me laugh every time I catch up with your blog!

  14. I am feeling the funk, too. And I didn't even go. But, all the post conference tweets and posts and the relationships that I can see that have been built...
    Anyway, thanks for hosting. And I want some Lindt chocolate... surely I should have some for my anniversary?

  15. So glad you had fun at the conference! Thanks for visiting my SITS entry!
