Busy Life Equals Bad Blogging: Sloggin' Thru Blogging

Here's the hard truth of the matter: your blog is only as good as your last post. Not true you say! All those other posts are still there! Yes, that's true. And they will bring in some viewers. However, to keep the numbers up, you have to keep posting new and different material. At least some of it should pass along interesting and useful information (which takes longer to write). When life gets busy, as mine currently is, the blog posting rate drops drastically, and with it your stats. Less writing, less readers.

However, on the other hand, while life is busy some of the stuff done and learned will have to be blog worthy for future posts. Keep a list of topics in your head or on paper for that time when life slows down and you can get back to your keyboard.

Now I need to get ready for another "interesting" day with 3-6 inches of snow on the ground by day's end and hopefully a car inspected and passed with no need for big repairs or replacement of parts. Yes, another interesting day.

Later bloggers and blog readers. Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back soon ... I think.
