Sometimes life takes over

There are many rules about not falling off the blog scene. I follow twitteratti/fb and the status quo dictates that writers must follow a regimen and to-do lists. They must check, check, check.

But rules apart, there is joy in reading a blog that dates back a couple of years. I came across one such blog today and it was interesting to see how a blog is a record of so many interesting thoughts. It is something that deserves to live!

So with that in mind, I’ll be writing here more often.

  1. I have to smile, as I wandered in this early morning before sunrise, I frequented olde post..
    it is like a journal of where my thoughts were in reacting to someone or something that was going on…
    I have not been around as much due to life getting the way….and this morning I remembered how much I love writing and how much I love reading others thoughts…
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts today…They Matter….
    Take Care…You Matter…

  2. Nice to see you again, welcome back! I’ve returned in fits and starts as well.

    I was quite active on Twitter for a while, never on FB, but not sure I agree with all that stuff that constant checking will build followers. Even when I was active with Twitter it didn’t really effect the stats all that much.

    I have no strategy anymore… I just like to blog and write so I will when the mood strikes me. I can’t remember if you were one of the regular participants of Sunday Picture Press but if you were, I do plan on starting that again in a couple weeks. Hope you’ll check it out and participate!

    More poetry, please, if possible. I came across your blog when I’d read very little on-line poetry. I’ve now read a lot and yours is some of the best.

    I’m blogging less myself now. One reason is writing less poetry and another, I suppose, is the novelty wearing off. Also like you, I think, but unlike some bloggers, I feel no need to share my whole life (or what I want to present as my whole life) on-line, just to share bits and pieces – which may be very important to me – like poems.

    Well, I’m really happy to see you here. The reason that I’m a reluctant poet is all this rights business- if you need to send a poem out, it should not be published on your blog. This rule might change a few years down the line, since everyone is in a neurotic state of self-publishing on facebook, on twitter, on blogs, so to send something you have never published seems very very absurd indeed…..

  5. Magazines I’ve come across are not bothered if a poem has been blogged, but most competitions bar it. I agree – it’s not very logical.

  6. I can understand that…. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed the schedule goes out the window. But, after my blackouts, I get back to work… hardest part is catching up on the blogroll, haha. Thanks for dropping by my page. 🙂

  7. Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
