Blogging: Never On A Sunday?

Never on SundayAfter long, hard thought, I came to the conclusion that I shouldn't blog on Sundays. It's a not a religious thing per se. And I'm not saying that I won't be writing my blogs on Sundays. In fact, that's exactly what I'll be doing. Traditionally, I've made Sundays "my day", where I give myself permission to slack off, to mentally recuperate if I want. And since I am now spending 12-20 hrs/day, 7 days/wk blogging, reading over 100 blogs a day, doing research for blogs and ebooks, and generally writing. And that's on top of any consulting to earn money, charitable blogging, and my part-time job. I need a day to recuperate.

If I don't take a day off to organize, I'll go crazy. I have a stockpile of partially written blog entries, but when I'm blogging, instead of actually finishing my pieces, I often obsess way too much over stats. I'm a stats junkie. So in addition to writing a blog entry and posting it, pinging services to announce my updated blog, checking for typos or broken links, I'm also tracking my visitor logs, my AdSense account, 2 or 3 services that give me a Google Map with icons showing which cities my visitors are coming from, and so on.

Believe it or not, it's not the AdSense stats I'm concerned about. They'll improve or they won't. I know I have to build up a readership for each blog, gain some credibility, maybe garner a few contracts, and so on. If I'm lucky, that will eventually translate in to AdSense revenue or I'll have to produce revenue some other way to support my blogwriting habit.

In fact, I do have a number of tricks up my sleeve that readers of my cooking blogs just may get a thrill out of. I'm some months away from this and a few thousand short for equipment. And I have some planning to do, and some money to earn in some way or other. So I do plan to keep researching, writing and generally blogging, but Never On A Sunday.

BlogSpinner-X serves two primary purposes. Firstly, it houses the original version of my Blogspinner blog, and contains the full-text of my older entries. Secondly, the more recent entries are excerpts of the full-text entries posted over on Blogspinner V2.0. In other words, the "X" stands for "eXcerpt".
