I'm doing a pretty piss poor job of updating this thing, which is too bad cuz that's, according to the blogsperts, how you gain a good following. I am by no means a professional blogger, but if I were, I would have to be updating this thing at least twice a day. I went to a seminar about pro blogging last wednesday. The speaker was Heather Armstrong from Dooce.com. She talked about pro blog life and how it never ends, blah, blah and how to gain a following and get ad endorsements. Made me want to get going on something like that...but knowing all the other stuff I have going on right now, I prob won't do that. At least not here. The reality is I have no category. I have no kids, I'm not married, I'm just me, with a house and some roommates I can't blog about and extended family I never talk to. I'm an expert on something, but that's all kept on my professional blog. Yes, it's true I do have a space for Google ads on the top of my blog, but so far I haven't actually made a dime on those. I don't really have the traffic for that kind of click-through action (but they're great for a little entertainment via polygamy and anti-mormon ads, right?). So, dear readers, you'll just have to be satisfied with my sporadically, maybe once or twice weekly postings. Hope you're okay with that. I love you anyway. The end.
