At the risk of being a little too "meta" in my posting, one result of trying to post every day in November is thinking a lot about what to post and perhaps thinking even more about how I do that. Phew..
If I'm lucky, something will cross my path that immediately signals itself as a potential blog post. More often than not though, I sit in front of my editor blankly waiting for something to trickle down through my fingertips. Something that continually frustrates me is that my mind is constantly zipping back and forth between entirely different things. I'm notoriously scatterbrained in my interests (hence the title of my blog). So one day it might be tech-related, another time photo related, or writing related or family related or... well, you get the picture.
I do jot down notes on occasion but far less often that I'd like to. I marvel sometimes at bloggers who consistently write quality posts on a single focused topic. Is it that they have bucket loads of material just waiting in the wings? Or do they generate things on a daily basis? Even more, do they have varied interests like I do and just choose not to post on those 'other' things?
I'm going to shift over to the new Blogger engine in the next little while (after I back up this monstrosity - thanks Omegamom for the info) and suffice it to say, the new post labeling (categories to most folks) feature will be put to good use. It will go some way to alleviate the guilt I feel about people reading a good post about Linux one day and then coming back to find a post about parenting or photography the next. I'm sure the format of this blog has not lent itself well to building subscriptions. Maybe that will change. Maybe not.
Anyway, if you'd like to share your posting methodology, do so in the comments to this post or blog about it yourself and link back here so I can find it.
