No no, not a c-o-d-e! I hab a code! By dose id all stubbed up. By ears are all buzzy. Uck.
I’m on my second box of Puffs Plus and even those are starting to feel like heavy grit sandpaper. And here’s how you know I am sick – I don’t want to eat anything. But, I will persevere. Gotta work today, but at least I will be here at home and not spreading my germs around to other people.
There are two results of spending a weekend with a cold. Number one is I got nothing. I bet you were kinda figuring that out on your own by now. The rambling probably gave me away. The biggest Monday morning nightmare [if you can have a nightmare in the morning] for someone with a blog – no content! Never fear – a lack of quality stuff to blog about has never stopped me before and I see no reason to change that now.
The second result is that, I used the time to really get to work on moving my blog to my own domain [and yes I will be master – or mistress, I guess – there] and getting WordPress all installed and functioning properly. I am working to make things a little more accessible, like categorizing the recipes by type, which is something I can’t really do very easily with Blogger. I have lots of pretty cool stuff coming up in the next year or so and getting the blog moved is the first step.
But a blog is nothing without the people who come to read it. Blogging is a very social activity and I think one of the reasons it has become so popular is that it is participatory. You don’t just read a blog. By commenting, you become part of it, because comments actually become another paragraph in the post.
So – I have two questions for you today. Since my brain is too fuzzy to think up anything really interesting to say, I will let you guys fill in for me. Didn’t think I was going to put you to work this morning, did you?
1. What keeps you blogging?
2. What do you look for in a blog that keeps you coming back?
I can’t wait to see what you all have to say about this. I will share my answers tomorrow. And because you were patient with my meandering mind this morning, here is a little peek at things to come:
