I’ve often said my blog is like the Seinfeld show, in that I also reap millions of dollars in royalties from my old blog posts.
Actually, it’s more like Seinfeld because most of my blogs are about nothing, and have no redeeming qualities.
And many of the comments I have received over the years offer confirmation of such nothingness.
So I figured, why fight it, I may as well write a post about nothing, literally.
This post was inspired by a wonderful post from a fellow blogger, Debby Gies, in which she talks about the importance of self-care. In her post, she mentions the Berkeley Well-Being Quiz, which is designed to “explore the multiple aspects of your well-being”.
Since I love these sorts of quizzes, I clicked on the link and began the short quiz (less than five minutes to complete). Many of the questions focused on one’s perceived level of happiness across several domains. After completing the quiz, I entered my email address, hit enter, and received a message that I would receive my results in about three minutes. I was already looking forward to writing a blog post about my results.
Well, three minutes went by, and nothing. So I tried another email account, the same result. I then tried the original email address, still no luck. And I checked my spam folder; there was nothing there. It’s now been a few hours, and I have not received the results of my well-being quiz.
I don’t think I’m ever going to get them.
I’d like to say I’m not happy about this, but that would not be a healthy way of handling such a situation.
So I’ll just look on the bright side.
At least I got a blog post out of it, even though there was literally nothing to write about…
