• I blog each day and still am willing to say you are right and you’re doing it right. As far as I can see there is not magical formula to success in blogging except to deliver useful (which can mean funny as shit snark) content on some kind of regular basis. If you blog three days in a row and don’t show up again for a month or more I’m going to probably delete you from my RSS feed and never see you again. If you take a week or 10 day break to do all the other stuff you do and I find your content valuable I’ll wait ๐Ÿ™‚ Make sense? (probably not it’s Thursday and I’m spent – long week already – I need wine)

    • Cheers to the wine, Jim. Pour me a glass.

      There’s just way too much good shit out there and I’m always finding new blogs, like yours. The Google Reader is about to explode past its saturation point, so I don’t think I’d even notice if someone didn’t post for a month. (Ditto with Twitter.) Honestly my Twitter streams have replaced the RSS and I read, comment and write opportunistically. I have my favorite sites, blogs I make a point to visit but those are the exception. I agree with regularity being good (hence the BM quip) in blogging but I like to rationalize my laziness with saying I don’t care. I’m just not picky about frequency as I would still prefer 2 dead-on-balls great posts a month, be it humor and snark or teaching me how to solve my WordPress woes, than a weekly glut of Meh clogging the feeds.

      Thanks for stopping by, adding your comment.

    • Danny, Good to know those pings and trackbacks are working! I too heart irony, hence the post and my tweets promoting it. You can’t throw a stick out on the Webs, not hit a blog post about blogging. The advice is great, but not always practical.

      I do like sharing my crazy ramblings with the world, but I gotta have something to say first otherwise it’s meaningless filler. I’d love to have the time to blog all dayรขโ‚ฌโ€œfor this and every job I haveรขโ‚ฌโ€œbut doesn’t always pay the bills. Someone’s gotta by the wine. Thanks for stopping by.

      • Hehe, any pingback with the term “shit” in it will always grab my funny bone ๐Ÿ™‚

        You’re doing it right (and yes, I see the irony of again advising on an anti-blog advice post, even in the comments) ๐Ÿ™‚

        Like you say, blogging just for the sake of blogging always seems a waste of hard-pressed time as it is. Some can do it regularly, some not so much.

        Looking forward to seeing what else comes this way, been enjoying getting to see your voice so far – cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚
