Consistency and dependability are also important in blogging. Anyone who sets out to write a blog should do so on a regular basis. There should be a regular schedule of posts, whether the posts are daily, three times a week, once a week, whatever. The blogger needs to decide on a schedule and stick to it. That way, his or her readers know when to expect a new post and don't have to keep checking back to see if there is a new entry. This is beneficial to the blog. More importantly, it is the right thing to do. The blogger has a responsibility to his or her readers to show up for work.
Of course, anyone who has been following this blog knows that I am guilty of not doing this. I haven't written a post in over two months. There are reasons, but there is not an excuse. To anyone who is still peeking in to see if I've written anything YET, first I say "thank you" and secondly, I am sorry. I am starting again and promise to write once a week, barring circumstances beyond my control, such as pneumonia (which I had earlier this year) or hurricanes (I live in Florida). New posts will be written on Fridays in the afternoon or evening, so look for them either in the evening or on Saturday morning. If you also follow the other two blogs, I will get them going again too, but in stages. First, I want to get this one back on track, then bring the Celtic / fantasy one back online. The spiritual one is the least followed, so I may let it go.
ADDENDUM: I've been given permission from herself to identify my friend who is responsible for getting me blogging again. Her name is (drum roll please): JENNIFER MAJOR. She is an excellent writer with a wicked sense of humor. Please visit her blog: http://jennym-talesfromtheredhead.blogspot.com and follow her on Twitter. Her handle is @jjumping. Also you can find her insights and witty comments on agent Rachelle Gardner's blog and the Books and Such literary agency blog. (By the way, I recommend both agent blogs HIGHLY. They are great sources of wisdom and learning for writers, especially those of us who are newbies. Also you will discover a warm and supportive community of writers there. I had the blessing of meeting Jennifer there).
