Have you ever watched a bird try to crack open a nut like this Carolina chickadee above is doing? That’s how I’m programmed. A crazy person writes here and Post A Day 2011 is going to feed my obsessive compulsive relationship with my blog. WordPress has been my favorite blogging host since before my knee started to give out and caused me to limp. That was in 2008. Post A Day 2011 is just what it sounds like it is and you are committed to posting once a day. That is just what a 50 something stay at home spoiled housewife needs. More reason to blog. Thank you wordpress.
The bird is out of focus but not the nut. Very tricky to get that sort of action and get the nut just before it cracks. I’m at that point. Just before I crack. I have taken on more blogging than a person should be allowed. I blog here at fgg, I keep a farmer’s market blog, one for a person I can’t mention ( famous), and now I successfully have a brand new blog that is going gang busters over at Best Garden Blogs.com I would not be so fired up about blogging if wordpress wasn’t such a breeze to use.
It’s winter in NC and I have time to do all this blogging–but soon spring will come and I’m an avid gardener. I love gardening so much that I even started a blogging magazine for all the best garden blogs out in the cyber world. My little shed sits empty right now but soon it will be a hive of activity as seeds are started and pots are prepared for the show to come.
If you look on my sidebar–you will see categories called, My Gardens. I have documented the beginning in 2008 and the reason I started this blog–to 2010. I will keep going forever I suppose and blogging is in my blood.
Some folks don’t venture out in the snow to see what’s hidden in the branches. I go and then share just as blogging is meant to to do. And with blogging, you don’t have to get every word correct thank goodness. Consistency is the key. I have a Facebook page to go with my fgg blog and the best garden blogs.com. I have about 700 or more good friends on one and 400 on the other FB page. So blogging has made me a few friends along the way. Last I looked today….I’m almost at 600 hits for the day. In the summer months when my gardens are in full glory–it can be 1,000 or better–a day!
Go right now and fan my Best Garden Blogs facebook page and by doing that good deed—your blogging future is guaranteed to be a success. It rubs off. Hang around those who have been at it a long time…see the tricks of the trade. I get two calls a week asking me how I got so good at blogging and I tell them……..
If you want more blogging tips–go see the folks at wordpress….Want to blog better in 2011? Oh and by the way–I’ve used about every trick in my blogging brain to make this post hit the mark. Do you see them all?
I have made the commitment to post daily to this blog. I love it and the new Post a Day 2011 challenge is just what I needed to drive me completely insane. I will not sleep at all now. It’s going to be so successful that by this time next year–my total visitors will well exceed the almost 500,000 I’ve had since I started this blog. Mercy……blogging can be a full time job.
