Via Julie D. at Happy Catholic, here are some ideas that she found at another 'blog. Combining the two gives me this list:
1. Manage your Comment Boxes.
It is rare for me to see comments, so that has been easy.2. Make your E-mail address easy to find.
My profile has the address to use.3. Don't keep changing your URL.
Not in this lifetime.4. Do change your template.
While I like the simplicity of this one, I wouldn't mind a refurbishing. Learning HTML wouldn't be a bad thing.5. Add interesting stuff.
Tweaking in progress. As fast as molasses in an Arctic winter.6. Have a sense of humor.
Aside from the occasional jokes I find, that has been lacking. Reflection of the personality of the 'blogmaster(?).7. Share a bit from your life.
I am working on some posts about the essence of this existence of mine.8. Write about what you want to and damn the hits counters.
While I like the TTBL Ecosystem and the Site Meter, I have never been worried about numbers. Rick Lugari said it best when I became an Amateur Catholic:
9. Have a point.
In case you're wondering, no, it's not because of his blogging - Ron is actually one of the few bloggers out there who knows something about moderation. And he thinks he's an amateur? Go figure.
To borrow from a school of acting, "What is my motivation?" Still haven't found a theme for this yet.10. Have a predictable pattern.
Do I have consistent inconsistency or what?11. Have fun.
I back away when it isn't or when real life needs my attention, which is to say most of the time. 'Blogging is still enjoyable.And I am still looking to put this infinitesimal corner of the universe in its proper place and perspective.
