Maybe it would be too cumbersome?

I think it'd be fun to know when you all make updates (I just did, see sig). When I'm supposed to be working, I love poking around on the web, kwim?

I have a new blog, and updated it this am (see sig). I've been pretty good at updating regularly - that's my goal - except for when I don't have a computer available.
So far I have no readers.... that I know of...

Awww......:

I know it's just meandering ramble, but i really find blogging therapeutic. I'm obviously not doing it for the readers!~

Lovesea -- wow! Talk about a different world. How utterly fascinating, your blog!

And, Ginene, I really like your creative take on the "business" of blogging. Reminds me of me, actually, and I mean that as a good thing. ;-)

SereneBabe, glad you like it. As far as I know you're the only person to read it apart from my sis. I don't know why I feel kind of shy going public but I think it's about time I did. Keep reading, especially during Nov to see if I complete the nablopomo

Ok I just visited and left a comment on everyone's blog. Nice blogs. If you want more traffic make sure you ping your blog after every post. I use www.pingomatic.com and join a few directories. I only get a few visitors but it is growing a little bit.

Oh thanks. I actually love to research things so if you ever have anything you want me to try and find I'll gladly do it. I am the private eye of online. LOL

I write a blog called the mindful home, includes everything from natural family living, attachment parenting, seasonal cooking and baking, green living, crafting and some other tidbits. I update it almost daily these days. Feel free to browse!

Mmm I love blueberry, too. My other favourite is these carrot/zucchini and walnut muffins I make regularly. Really healthy and very good! I also love lemon cranberry. I'm a bit of a muffin freak. They're fun to make too!

Sorry for hijacking... back to blogging goodness.

I try to write at least 5x a week in mine. I have two- one for personal stuff and one focused on our homeschooling. Both in my siggy. Thanks for the tips on increasing readership! I checked out everyone's blogs! Love finding new ones to read, thanks. And I love getting comments on my stuff, so enjoy!

Who else here is doing it?

See, this is why I feel like my website actually ISN'T a blog. The idea of posting every day feels more like journaling, which I don't think would interest many people. I mean, I intentionally don't post very frequently because I work on my essays for a while before I hit "publish." I don't put anything purely conversational or things like, "blogger gave me trouble, sorry to all you RSSers who heard from me tons of times tonight!"

I did post a new essay this week: http://www.serenebabe.net/

I have found it fun, though, to see the HUGE range of blogs out there, though. I hope more of us announce our new posts in this thread, too. :-)

--Heather

eta: wowsa! just went through and visited all your blogs. GREAT variety! So fun. (Can you tell I'm new to blogging? NOT new to writing essays on the web! ;-) Chloe, I LOVE the photos of the market.

Hi - I have a blog (see sig). It's very tongue in cheek and helps keep me sane while being a SAHM. Off to read the ones on here.

I'm doing nablopomo but not very inspired. I'm checking everyone's blogs as I get chance. What a lovely variety of styles and content. SereneBabe, I can't see your latest essay.

I have left a comment, although barely able to write with the laughter. I have such images of this George in my head and your ma's comment about the 'taters!! Hilarious!
