big purchase after long savings

I'm thrilled with the reception of my giveaway, I'm thankful for the new followers, and I deeply appreciate the comments after my post yesterday. One of the things I love about blogging is forming a community of friends, and I'm really starting to feel like I'm developing friends out there.

Since I was a bit quiet yesterday, I wanted to share with you some exciting news for me! I got the new Macbook Pro today!
I've been waiting for many months to get one, as my boyfriend kept reminding me that they would be "coming out with a new one soon". Isn't apple always coming out with a new one soon? It isn't one second after you've bought something that rumors spread about a new version coming out. Well, I'm okay with that. I've been saving for this for a VERY long time, I needed a personal computer as I've been using my work one for personal stuff for the last couple of years, and I have some exciting plans related to my quote yesterday that will make this mac worthwhile. I'll save those plans for a rainy day.

Random question: do you write your posts and then post them or write a bunch ahead of time and then schedule them? I've been telling myself I would schedule for a while, bit I've yet to do it.

Just as random, do you tweet? Follow me on twitter and tell me your name! I'm loving it since I started back into it a month or so ago.

Congrats!!!! It's beautiful and I am sure a lot of fun! New computers are always fun!!!!

As for your question, I've been thinking a lot about outlining posts before actually sitting down to write them! But for now, I write them as I go... :-)

Most posts I post as they "hit me"! lol Alot of linkys I schedule, then you don't have to do it late at night when you get home! Love the computer, we use them at work and I am slowly becoming a MAC fan.

Congrats on the Mac! I'm completely jealous, I needed to buy a laptop last summer but didn't have enough for the Mac at the time so I settled for a Sony.

As for the posts, it depends on how long I have at a time. If the ideas are flowing and I've got spare time, I'll write 2-4 posts and schedule them. But usually I write and publish at once, or just start half a post then come back. And I follow you on Twitter, I've found that Twitter is a great way to personally bond with blog friends!

CONGRATS! BF got me a macbook for my birthday last June and I am in LOVE. I had no idea what I was missing until then :) And now I am just as apple obsessed as he is! I totally agree though, everytime i've bought an iphone or when I got my computer, a new one was going to hit stores in a month! You can't keep up with those Apple nerds! LOL As for the post, i've tried outlining and it just doesn't work for me, I like to just go with it because if I plan ahead when it comes time i may not be in the mood to write about it anymore. But that's just me! Have a great weekend with your new toy! :)

Congrats, you will love it. I have the Macbook aka before it became the Macbook Pro. We bought it December 2009 before the 13 inch Macbook was a Macbook Pro. I think I will be getting a new one on my birthday this year. I usually write out a Blog plan list of what I will write about. Then I write the actual post on the day I plan on posting it.

You will love it! I got my Macbook Pro as an early Christmas present and am in love...
