The State of the Blog Address.

I am almost two whole months into this world of blogging, and I am really happy with the way things seem to be going. 

I had previously tried putting my ridiculous stories on a Facebook page (one other than the one that mirrors my blog) and I just didn’t like the feel of it. People seemed more snarky and critical. People had a tendency to take me too seriously. For some reason, the blogging community seems to be more civil.

I am also thrilled that there are some of you out there with minds that slant in the same basic direction as mine, and I am grateful for all of you who read my absurdities. 

Thank you!

I feel bad that I can’t seem to find the time to visit your blogs as much as I would like. I almost can’t keep up with responding to comments on my own posts.

As a 46 year old who climbs trees for a living, I often spend my evenings in a fetal position on the couch whimpering like a beaten puppy. Or some nights, I fall asleep before I can even finish dinner, resulting in my waking up the next morning with a half eaten piece of pizza still hanging out of my mouth.

I need to slow down a bit on posting so that I can spend more of my limited time surfing other blogs. But being an impulsive person, when I have an idea, I just can’t wait to get it typed and posted. 

I’m sure as time goes on, I will find ways to work blogging into my schedule more efficiently.

Thank you all for making this a truly enjoyable experience so far!

  1. So do you recommend Facebook? I am still debating whether or not I should sign up for it. I am hesitant due to some recent issues with their privacy policy. I was hoping to create just a page for my book but still reluctant. Any advice? And I agree, it’s hard to keep up. I try to read up on as many blogs as I can. I don’t know how some people do it.

  2. I’ve been at this for a long time. My biggest failing as a blogger is reading and commenting on other blogs. I’ll go from wishing the blogs I followed posted more to wondering how I’m ever going to get caught up on all that has been written. The only advice I can offer is to only follow blogs that actually interest you. When I started, if someone followed me, I’d follow them back to be nice, didn’t matter that I had no interest in what was written there. That’s an ok strategy when you are following 10 blogs. At 100 blogs, it’s just torturing yourself.

  3. Don’t feel guilty. You are allowed to prioritize your day job and precious sleep before blogging. Plus, you write interesting and funny stuff, and that’s good enough for me.

  4. The blogging community is great, like a whole network of online friends that you never knew existed. You will find your niche on when and how to posts. Although I say more posts because they are hilarious!

  5. I’m sure you will find your stride and balance. I’ve been having a challenge this week balancing the kids, the writing project, blogs, and work. Oh and the house. some days are just a blur.

    Oh, and your picture makes me dizzy. I am not one with the height thing 🙂


  6. I hear you… sometimes reading all the updates feels like homework. I have to make myself sit down and do it, and control the urge to post my own inane thoughts. Also, I totally agree with you about the Facebook thing. People are MEAN on Facebook…


  7. Love your blog. I give you credit for juggling everything and blogging as often as you do. You must be a great dad. Not to mention your children will love this blog when they have children of their own.
    Shine On


  8. You’re right, it can sometimes take quite a bit of time, especially when you feel like you should be giving people the same type of courtesy and support they have given you. But it is time consuming. We all want to grow our blogs but everything comes at a cost. I this case it’s time.
