Hey, this blogging is work! I'm up early to post my feature for the day and then spend the day reading and commenting on blogs, researching for upcoming articles, and writing the articles for future posts. Then whenever I can squeeze it in I'm plugging away on my NaNo novel. I keep going to check my mailbox, but still no paycheck. Let's face it--this blogging is a labor of love.
Still posting every day! This was a pretty good week. If you didn't see my review and interview with the great musician Sebastian Sidi, I hope you will go back and check it out. This week I will be visiting with Ada Jackson, an artist from New Jersey. She will be talking about the art that she dreams of and the art that pays her bills right now. It's a story that many of you will probably identify with so I hope you will check that out on Wednesday. I've got a real variety of interviews and feature stories in the weeks to come. If you haven't done so already sign on as a follower so you won't miss any of these interesting people.
Monday I'll fill you in with another NaNo update. My novel is progressing. Of course there have been some snags and I'll let you know how I've dealt with them and hopefully hear how some of you other NaNo particpants have coped with the challenges you have faced.
Have you ever seen a movie that's so bad that it's good? That will be my topic on Tuesday. I recently saw a really bad movie that it has become a cult favorite for many folks. I'll tell you about that one and some other bad movies that might make you as curious as I was to see them. Surely I've got better things to do with my time, but sometimes we just need to indulge in some foolishness.
Thursday I'll put forth another topic for debate and discussion. My last debate topic on welfare families got some good discussion and I want to thank those who voiced their opinions. You'll have to check back next Thursday for a new topic. Will you agree or will I really raise your hackles with what I have to say? Come on and join in the discussion.
On Friday I hope I come up with another story that is mysterious, chilling, or downright weird. This past week I had a tale of an unexplained draft in a house in England. Was it a ghost or an evil spirit? If you want to know go back and read the story of The Mystery of the Drafty Room.
What about the rest of you blogging out there? Why do you do it? What will be your future payoff for your efforts? And those who read this blog, do you enjoy it? What suggestions do you have for me to improve the blog? Do you have an idea for a story or a topic of debate? Please let me hear from you even if it's just a friendly hello or an insolent "blog off". It's just nice to know that someone reads this far to notice.
And if you got this far, then a big thank you and hope to see you again!
