The Blogging101 experience has been wonderful and I have learnt heaps but now its time to settle back into the real world.
I really don’t think I can blog each day, not reliably anyway. At the same time I dont want to lose the spontinaity of blogging whenever I feel like it.
That leads me to a line from one of my favourite James Bond films…
Mr. Wint: The scorpion.
Mr. Kidd: One of nature’s finest killers, Mr. Wint.
Mr. Wint: One is never too old to learn from a master, Mr. Kidd.
Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
What’s that all got to do with learning from a master? Well, one of my favourite blogs for a long time is Half-Elf on Tech – Tales from the Support Rogue. The ‘half elf’ is Ariela Epstein, better known as Ipstenu, and IMO she really is a master blogger.
One of the things I learnt from Ipstenu is that even the greatest bloggers need a ‘routine’ – her’s is to blog on Mondays-Wednesdays-Fridays.
As a reader, I crave more, but I fully understand the need to set a pattern and stick to it.
Without fail, Ipstenu blogs 3 days a week and I have come to rely on receiving Half-Efl on Tech goodness in my WordPress in-box on Tuesdays-Thursdays-Saturdays due to the time difference between her world and mine.
So I resolve to blog on Sundays, to start with. Why Sundays – well its a day of rest and for me blogging is very relaxing, especially with a nice cold glass of bier in my hand 😀
