Riding A New Wave

I just completed a thirty minute online instruction on getting a domain name and website. I'm feeling like a wave just broke into the calm wake where I was treading water.  Just when I think I'm starting to get a handle on social media and blogging I find out a website is considered as necessary as contact information as telephone numbers were in the business world when that technology emerged. Communication has certainly made tremendous strides in under fifty years. I remember when first class postage was 3cents and now snail mail is becoming more and more irrelevant. I'm just going to have to swim harder to keep up in this river.  For now though, good night...have an early morning ahead.   Blessings

Treading Water

Well, I jumped in and haven't sunk like a stone.  The past week hasn't been floating down the lazy river. I've been keeping my head above water in a rushing river of information on writing in general and specifically, writing a successful blog . My hope is to make this blog worthy of  the reader's time investment, otherwise I might as well rant on the back of the junk mail to get things off my chest. At least that would recycle paper.

Professional advice differs on the frequency of posting. The most convincing argument I had read before beginning this blog was once a week.  That was good at the time since I wasn't sure about getting started, but was convinced I should surely be able to post once a week.  Since that time the consensus in what I have read seems to be posting about three times a week. One bit of advice in common, regardless of  the position on frequency, was post something worthy of reading.

There's no telling what you'll find here a funny, an encouraging word, a bit of timely information, a prayer, an opinion (I'll try not to shout from a soapbox), helpful hints or the thought where the roulette ball lands on the wheel of my spinning mind.

Thanks for reading followers, I'll do my best to give you something good.
