Blogging in the New Year

I think this is going to be one of those off-topic meta-posts.  Blogging about blogging.

I really need to get organized with my blogging.  So far, I have been posting here and there when a topic comes into my head, but I really do need to work out some kind of routine.  Some sort of schedule for when I typically post stuff.  This will be especially important when I am sick because I will really need to force myself to stay in contact with the world.

I`m taking my inspiration from this post from Marya Writes.  I stumbled across her blog on the WordPress Freshly Pressed section (a phenomenal post on blogging tips) and immediately subscribed. I am not sorry.  If you´ve any interest in writing, I recommend you do the same.   She´s putting out great stuff.

She has really inspired me with her 2011 resolutions.  I love writing.  Heck, it´s what I studied in school.  I´ve just gotten out of the habit.  I want to think for a while about how I want to handle the blog in 2011.  Normally I would blog about this, but right now my connectivity is pretty spotty.  We are still in Ecuador, so my ability to compose, type, and post is limited.  I´m working on a multi-part post on travelling with little ones, but it´s on my phone.  Not only do I have to hammer out each individual word, but I don´t have an international calling plan, so no connectivity.   There´s just no way to post it.  Also, the phone is just killing my fingers.

At this point, I think I will just break out the old pen and paper.  It´s just easier that way.

Here are a few of the questions I plan to kick around:

  • How often and on what schedule will I post?
  • What are some potential topics?  I mean, obviously the HG, but what aspect.  No one wants to read, “Today I puked 12 times.  Yesterday 8.  Blah, blah, blah.” 
  • How can I not only make this an interesting read, but bring good quality information to folks who might need it?
  • Ultimately what do I want to get out of this?

It´s a bit to mull over.  I think I will go sharpen a pencil and ask if my Mother-in-Law has an old notebook she would like to donate to the cause.

Please excuse any bizarre punctuation.  I´m on a Spanish keyboard which means it´s easy to type this: ñ, but hard to type this: @.

  1. Let me just say that I cannot wait to see what this turns into! I love you lots sister, and I wish I was traveling around with you guys! Maybe we can one day do an international trip and I can be a helpful hand with the little one(s)! 🙂 Love you and hope you guys had a Merry Christmas (Feliz Navidad?!)!!!

  2. All I really care about is that you continue to blog! I will most likely be pregnant again in the next few months and it will be such a strength to me to know I’m not the only one going through this. And hopefully I’ll have some strength to offer too.

  3. For now I too am just glad you take the time to blog. I shall be prego anyday now as well. I have started blogging and will surely check out Marya Writes. Thanks for the ref. Take care and keep up the good work.
