The Death of a Deadline: How One Blogger Almost Blew His 5-Year Streak

I’ve been writing this blog since August of 2011, and I have never missed my self-imposed, 8:00am PST, Monday morning deadline. Not once, until today.

Well, technically I didn’t miss it — I mean, you are reading a new blog post right now — but it’s about three hours late, and that’s inexcusable.

I honestly don’t know what happened. I found myself so slammed with work and other surprise projects today I had absolutely no time to come up with a decent article. None. Not even enough time for some half-assed joke about my doo-doo hole.

So, I’m offering up a glimpse into my life as an American expat in Germany over the past six months, using heavily edited photographs instead of meaningful words. It is a cheap, filthy cop out, — I know — and I apologize in advance; especially to those of you who follow us on Twitter (@mywifeisgerman) or Instagram (ohgodmywifeisgerman), because on top of everything else, you’ve already seen these stupid god damn pictures.

Okay. Deep breath. Stop typing so fast. I’ll do better next time.

Alright! So, for now, please click one of the thumbnails below to start the slideshowΒ in lieu of the legitimate blog post I should have written:

Thank you for visiting our site and have an awesome day!

  1. This school year I have been so overwhelmed with work, life, etc I squeezed out 4 blog posts? So the fact that you get one done every Monday? High Five man! Hope to get back to at least one a month next year.

  2. Very nice pictures. I’ve been only been blogging for a few months and I blog every Wednesday. I’ve done pretty good so far with keeping up that streak. But sometimes you just get busy and that’s okayπŸ‘Œ
