Getting Rid Of The Echo

Happy Wednesday All,

Okay, I'm late posting this, and I apologize. But, I'm here, now.

There's a funny thing about ideas. Sometimes it's so hard to come up with something before hand. When you have to force an idea, it seems like it gets stubborn. You push, you pull, beg, plead, bargain...and nothing happens.

Then you sit down and suddenly ideas pop out of nowhere and it's all you can do to keep up.

That's the way it is with this blog a lot of the time. People ask me "How do you come up with ideas for your blog?" The truth is, sometimes I don't come up with anything until I start typing. Other times, an idea pops in and I write it down for whatever date I think it will fit.

I have a notebook that I started keeping this year. In it I write the day of the week and the date. Then I write down any blogging idea for that day. Some things I already know--for example, official book reviews. I know that later this month I'll be posting one, I know that next month sometime I have one (in fact, I'm working on finishing reading that book for April's official book review). Other times I have no idea until that day.

Blogging, like anything, is an exercise. The more you do it, the more you know what to expect. Sometimes it means it gets easier, sometimes it means it gets harder--especially when you start worrying about repeating yourself. However, like anything else, blogging doesn't get easier if you have a blog and you avoid it. Once you decide to blog, you owe your followers to post as often as you can--or at least as often as you say you will post.

I know lately I've been falling off the wagon on that. I am extremely sorry. Last week I was sick, and another time I had family in town. However, now I'm going to cut the excuses and work harder at providing a post for you Monday through Friday (I don't post on weekends, Holidays (like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter), and some days that are Holy in my faith). I'm not promising I'll be perfect at it, but I will do my best to have less "empty" days.

So, this is me, making an effort...and hopefully I can breathe new life into this blog, again.

Have A Witty Wednesday!
