No, I’m not lost or leaving. Nor do I plan to. What’s vanishing are all of my “brilliant” ideas for a blog. *sigh* It’s rather strange how Susan blogged about this only days ago when I’d already come up with this idea for today’s blog. Great minds think alike, I suppose. Hmm. We could have ESP. OR we’re both just weird? 😉
Some people find it relatively easy to blog about different subjects/topics on a regular basis. I applaud them! And truth be told, envy them. Me? I figure my everyday life is pretty mundane so you’d be bored spitless reading about it. Hence, my absence.
In a nutshell, I’ve been hauling wood to the house to feed the stove to keep warm. (Last week.) Yesterday, I found as much to do outdoors as I could, enjoying the 70 degree weather. I had my teeth cleaned, ate lunch with a couple of dear writing friends, and later, walked the dogs. See? Boring. Oh, yeah. I’ve been working on edits, too. (Major activity there!)
I’ve been contemplating the effectiveness of blogging in the whole scheme of the social media thing. What does and does not work for a writer and why. Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Blogging. There are other ‘new’ avenues popping up all the time that a person can pursue. But where do you draw the line? When do you get any writing done? You can social media all of your time away. (Personally, facebook is a BIG time-suck for me.)
Is there a solution? Short of having your own personal publicist doing all the social media thing, I doubt it. Since I can’t afford one, I reckon I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Hidden out of sight.
