|At breakfast this morning :)|
This was the scene this morning. Not the norm. I am doing my 'homework' - looking at photo blogs, responding to comments and making comments. Normally, I would do this when I am putting together my entry for the day - sitting at the PC (before dinner) for a generous amount of time. I go out taking photos almost every day.
This is my opportunity to 'go home' to Pasadena and see places near to Pasadena I love to visit. So enjoyable when you live so far away. I have also discovered neighbours here in the UK (they are on my blog list) that display wonderful images of places right on my doorstep. And, of course, there is are others with super photos from far and wide...Princeton, Valladolid, Sydney and so the list goes on.
A few month's ago I put my 'bravery' hat on and started commenting on photos and, bingo, I received comments back. Lovely! It is so much fun looking at your photographs, commenting and sometimes participating in an exchange of banter. I have made some friends here. Thank you.
I am glad I am retired....it all takes time. This morning I tried something a little different....hence the photo for today. I always check emails first thing so I responded to and commented on the photo blogs I follow. (These comments seem to generate a lot of emails anyway.) I notice that our blogs layouts are not uniform. Adele's, Sierra Madre blog above has a layout (Google, I think) where you comment and then Adele responds to each individually. Mine, and the majority, seem to list comments and then the author responds en block (possibly easier for me).
Here is the question: How do you manage your blog? Do you post and comment all at the same time? Or, break it up a little?
I am part of a small community which I hope will grow. Some of you have hundreds of followers...blogging could become a job in itself. So what is your routine? I am hoping to keep this as 'hobby'. A wonderful, fun hobby. Thanks for your time.
PS. That is toast with Marmite on it...ha ha! Over here there is an expression about Marmite - 'You either love it or hate it'. I love it but used to 'hate' it!
