Back in May, Eddie the Renaissance Geek wrote about trying to get ahead in the blogging game, especially when the WiFi goes out:
“Thankfully, I had several “silly season” posts already scheduled. I’ve started writing those as I think of them and scheduling several of them throughout each week, about a month ahead of time. That way, if something happens on this end, like an outage, you still get your dose of Eddie that makes you wonder why you keep coming back to this here blog.”
I replied: “You absolutely SHOULD post ahead. I went about 5 days not writing anything, but you wouldn’t know it.
I finished FOUR posts TODAY, but I may have no Internet access from Saturday-Wednesday. It’s particularly useful for occasions – anniversaries, holidays.”
Eddie responded: “My problem has always been that once I get the cushion built up, I slack off, instead of building on it. I am, however, working bit-by-bit on December posts, since that is the time of year when I tend to disappear from online life.”
The regular blog IS an art form. And because of this, the spontaneity of the blog sometimes gets lost. Which is where YOU come in. YOU get to Ask Roger Anything.
As always, you may ask me ANYTHING, ask for advice or opinions or philosophical musings. Not only I will answer, reasonably soon, generally within thirty days, but I will also probably have to BUMP something I’ve already written for a date in favor of YOUR question. Mixing it up: now THAT is exciting, in that 1) I have to figure out what to postpone and 2) it means I usually have NO idea what I posted that particular day until it goes live, and THEN see the typo I had missed when it was in draft form.
Your queries I will answer, to the best of my ability/memory/flashback honestly, though the mind is a sometimes thing. A little obfuscation on my part IS allowed!
You can leave your comments below. If you prefer to remain anonymous, that’s fine; you should e-mail me at rogerogreen (AT) gmail (DOT) com, or end me an IM on Facebook (make sure it’s THIS Roger Green, the one with the duck) and note that you want to remain unmentioned; otherwise, I’ll assume you want to be cited.
