Time--2017 A to Z Theme
My theme for the 2017 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is "Time". The posts will be more philosophical, contemplative, and even autobiographical than instructional. No time management tips planned, but you never know with A to Z.
Always a work in progress--welcome to my blog...

Research (Elements of Blogging) #AtoZChallenge
Some bloggers really put in a lot of research to compile their blog posts while others are not writing about anything that requires much research. If you're spewing out facts and figures and want to be recognized for your accuracy then it's a good idea to do thorough research so you don't end up getting disputed and being made look like a less than credible blogger.
If you want to add links to support your claims or to provide further exploration on a topic it will take some time in order to assemble them all to add to your post. Most bloggers do their research on the internet, but as in any writing that is backed by research it's wise to carefully check your source material against other sources. Beware the internet sources however as many of them are merely duplicated from site to site. The internet can be a treasure trove of useful information at times, but at others the internet spreads lies and faulty information that unfortunately starts getting accepted as truth.
Where do you usually go to fact check suspect information that you find online? What is the craziest non-truth that you've found on the internet that was being touted as fact? How much research do you usually do for your average blog post?
"R" also stands for "Release Day" we see many of these on blogs. Today I want to mention Nicki Elson's new release of Vibrizzio. Sounds like a steamy one so I'll let you visit Nicki's site for more info or you can check it out on Amazon!
