Tell Me Why You Don't Like Mondays?

Mondays do get a bad press, and it not just Bob Geldof's pension boosting take on a high school shooting that inspired the song that makes it so. That anthem might reinforce the idea that Monday is grim. Back to the grindstone and all that...

However, it is not very often that you hear people who own their own businesses complain about the start of the working week. Quite possibly because it is just another 24 hours in their seven day working week! Joking aside, I suspect it all comes down to how invested you are. If you care about your business, or your job, Monday is just another opportunity.

I am not alone among the WBBC bloggers not to post over the weekend. Partly because a friend emailed me a link to a wry definition of 'blogger' on the Urban Dictionary website:

"Blogger is a term used to describe anyone with enough time or narcissism to document every tedious bit of minutia filling their uneventful lives. Possibly the most annoying thing about bloggers is the sense of self-importance they get after even the most modest of publicity. Sometimes it takes as little as a referral on a more popular blogger's website to set the lesser blogger's ego into orbit."

Okay, so I don't think any of use are document everything, but am alone in getting a buzz when I discover a fresh comment? Anyway, obviously it was work that kept me from posting over the weekend and not any self conscious fears of meeting that definition!

Work beckons. More soon.
