Recess at Work Day

Today is Recess at Work Day and for bloggers, most of whom work at home, it can be easy to take a recess instead of doing the work we are supposed to be doing.

So I asked a bunch of bloggers, what fun things do they do when they are supposed to be blogging? Today is the day you are ALLOWED to do those things!

What Bloggers Do Instead of Blogging

So slack off today, put aside whatever you were going to do because it’s Recess at Work Day!

Kids Say The Darndest Things… About Blogging


Kids Say the Darndest Things... About Blogging - real quotes from kids! | Biannual Blogathon Bash

After the latest exchange with one of my daughters about blogging, I wondered if other children had said funny things to their parents about blogging. I asked a bunch of my fellow bloggers if their children had said anything funny about their blogging. My exchange with my oldest daughter is below followed by funny quips from other blogger’s children.

My 7 year old Morgan: Whatcha doing?
Me: Blogging
Morgan: About what?
Me: Video games at the moment
Morgan: Did you do the video yet (she is referring to Turbo which we had just watched after receiving for review)
Me: Nope not yet.
Morgan: Well you should do that next.
