10 ways not to suck at blogging (hint: it involves posting more)

It's Thursday. And this post is phoned in. Other than that, I'm totally on my game.


10. Post more.

9. Then post more posts.

8. Occasionally take a break for a day but then

7. POST!!

6. Have I mentioned you need to post?

5. Because you do. If you don't have much to say... POST.

4. If you don't have much time... POST ANYWAY.

3. French bread is delicious.

2. I will

1. Post daily.

This list was pretty much a poem by e.e. cummings.

I'm really sorry, Weeders. I've gotten messages and comments from many of you because of my lack of postage and I hear you. I will do better.

In fact, I will post every single day for a week. (And then hopefully beyond.)

What prize do you think I should give myself if I reach this ambitious goal????

(PS--upcoming attractions: two FFAQ answers from a while back, one about scouts and one about something totally different, plus my response to a doozy of an ill-informed comment about locker rooms. Should be fun! Unless you hate those things. Then it will be not fun.)

  1. I figured out a way for me to be a decent blogger. I have a rough time with schedules, so I kind of binge-write my posts and date them so that two come out every week. Then when the list starts to get short again, I find a time to write up a bunch more posts -- maybe -- I hope. Now I've just got to try to get my writing up to par...

    1. That's what I've done.. except I've run out of clever ideas. *sigh... I don't have much of a following, so I don't hear much when its been weeks since the last post.

      I really needv to "get on the bic" (bic pens?) about it....

    3. I've recently started doing that too, because I want to post twice a week...and I'm not always in the mood to do that. I love your phrase "binge-write". That is precisely what I do. When the mood strikes, I write as many posts as I can and schedule them.

  2. Praise the Lord! ;)
    Can't wait for the posts! Though I'm pretty much predicting that the doozy is going to make my blood boil.

  4. Josh, I love your reference to e.e. Cummings!!! Just when I thought you couldn't possibly get any cooler (after the Snuffy post ya know). BTW I no longer appear as SuztheFooz. Just Susie. Boring, I know:(. Keep posting!

  6. I totally love your posts, and look forward for them everyday, but I totally understand that you're busy. Take your time and relax :) we all have those moments.

  7. The prize you should give yourself for reaching that ambitious goal is one of those AED things they've been putting in schools here -- you know, the paddle things they put on your chest and yell "CLEAR!" ?

    'Cause if you suddenly started blogging /every day/, you'd have a heart attack!! :D Maybe you could put a virtual AED on your page, 'cause all of us loyal fans would surely have heart attacks too. :D :D

  8. Locker rooms? Wow. Looking forward to that post!

  9. No pressure, man. We love you, but we know you have a life.

  10. Totally unasked for suggestion from a stranger

    (which makes you something akin to a pregnant woman)

    Hint Hint; Bloggerize some of your book! That paragraph (or 900 if youre like most) that ends up on the editors "tighten this up" list.... Will you run rampant with them over here??? Total stream of consciousness freedom. Total, "But I LIKED that -totally unrelavent- bit! I used the word platypus as a verb and it worked! How often does that happen in a lifetime?"

    Grey.
