Something new I have learned about blogging since by re-launch into the blogging world:
–You can write posts and then have them published at a later date
I know this is not new to anyone who blogs regularly, but since I never did, it’s new to me. Here’s what this means to me:
–I can write a bunch of posts and work on them for multiple days and them have them published later. This is good because sometimes I get lots of ideas and don’t have time to finish writing them all. I can also spread out my posting so I am more “consistent” in blogging rather than feast or famine. I feel as though the summer will be feast and school year famine, but I’m working on that.
I want to be more like Dave and post one time a day, but I’m long-winded and talk a lot. Sometimes I want to write really long stuff and I just don’t have time, so I write nothing at all. However, some of my favorite blog posts by him are these silly pictures he posts. Or when Carlos posts “Caption Please,” it always makes my day.
I also love it when Carlos’ wife Heather posts pictures of their family. We’re terrible at taking pictures, so I’m hoping that I can use the blog as an excuse/reason to post pictures of our family events. I’m hoping this will also get me back in the habit of taking pictures. I used to love doing this and pretty much stopped after a while.
So I’m going to work on being consistent either through a “real” daily post or a delayed post, I’m going to try to post more pictures of our family, and I’m going to be ok with short/silly blog posts. Apparently I have some unwritten blog rules that I need to let go of.
