Some of us are slow learners.
My day usually starts around 6:30 am (today was 5:30 am because 3 grand dogs wanted to go for a walk - can't they tell time???) *sigh* ... the day begins with a cup of coffee and my laptop. I would give you a picture, but my camera is vacationing in Geek Land (still!!).
I spend the first quiet hour of the day reading blogs. It is my own quiet me-time. Everyone is asleep. Usually that first hour I am not awake enough to do anything else but sip coffee and read. That first hour gives my body time to catch up with my brain. And I try hard to not write stuff until after the coffee has been absorbed by my cells. My words without caffine can be dreadfully confusing - almost another language.
Periodically during the day I will check email to see if anyone has visited my blog and commented. Now you visitors who don't comment (you know who you are) ... how do I know that you came for a visit? Yes, I know, there are blogspot stats that let me know the number of visitors to each post, but without comments you are "lurking" ... I need you to comment and say "hi". "Hi" is good!! The door is always open to my "blog house". Stop peaking in the window and come on in!!
Come evening I get another hour just before bed ... another hour of me-time. Everyone else has zonked out for the night (cats, dogs, mother, daughter, husband) and it is just me, my laptop and maybe a glass of wine and a hunk of cheese. That is when I create blog postings. The cheese makes me creative and the wine makes me wordy! It is a good combination.
Sometimes I just drop ideas into draft postings for the future, sometimes I create the guts of a single posting, sometimes I read what I wrote previously tweaking it (it is amazing what crap I can write - you don't want to see an "un-tweaked post"), and sometimes I just schedule a number of finished postings for future days (I so love the "schedule" feature.)
So what is your blogging routine? Do you have a routine? How do you squeeze this sometimes time-consuming process into your day?
