Friday's Thoughts and Other Stuff, on a Saturday

Thanks for all the comments folks. Sorry about not getting them posted sooner, but I have been busy these last few months.

I have had several questions about starting a blog, sad to say I'm terrible at it, but .... Here's my suggestions.

First, are you doing it for you or the money. Hopefully it's for you because most people don't make any money at blogging.

Second, have a regular schedule that you can work within. Take Uncle from Say Uncle. He writes five, six, seven blurbs a day while

Third, write about something you enjoy. If you like cooking, write about cooking. You like guns, write about guns. If you like politics, write about politics.

Fourth, don't quit your day job. Ha, ha, ha.

Fifth, add value by selling your writing, be it a cookbook, pamphlets, or other stuff (art, charity store finds, or ...) to your readers.

But, ...

Do it directly because the middlemen will keep some of your profit. Please, some do-gooder like me will come along and talk bad about the expensive, useless stuff the blog is peddling like Survival Blog.

Sixth, ... It's late; I'm headed to bed.
