Do you blog?
Nope, I don't blog. I don't have time. I come here and that's about it.
There is one blog that I go to. It's my neices. She's a photographer up in Nashville, TN (right now). She's good and I'm proud of her. There isn't as many photos now that she is working with a studio but the site is: sarad harper.com is you want to check it out. The band photo's are of Christian Rock Bands and the brunette on down at the bottom (red dress) is her younger sister, Kristin. She is really good with kids!
The closest I come to blogging is my journal here.
Good morning, Eleyne!!!!
Love this question! I really like the whole concept of blogging! I do visit other blogs, i.e., YOURS! , and have thought of creating a writers blog--but my FWCs: Diary of a Prisoner, http://theforbiddenworldchronicles.blogspot.com/, is more than enough right now to keep up with. I have several WIP 'letters' just waiting to be mulled over and posted. I also need to take some time to 'switch' over to beta. BUT-- I'm still figuring out the template and html codes for uploading, etc. PLUS, I have been working on my FWCs writers site -- tighting up some format issues, creating some graphics, etc. I also updated the Banner Exchange and Links pages--if anyone would like to submit theirs--

***NOTE: Sorry for the ads, but I cannot afford the 'no ad package' and I don't know how to transfer my FWCs site over to my earthlink account. My earthlink accts do not have all these ads.
RE NaNoWriMo: As I visited numerous NaNo forums, last month, I took a litte time to skim through some fellow NaNoers' blogs. There were several VERY nice concept blogs out there. Here's one: http://wildefyre.greatestjournal.com/
I'll have to check on some other addresses and post back later.
If anyone else around here knits I found a knitter's blog: http://www.subwayknitter.com/ She has a charming wit about her and posts her trials and tribulations of each project.
And YES! I do click on the links. (-:
Love and Blessings to you!!!!

Your post made me think of this-- I liked it so much I added it to my blog: http://www.radiorivendell.com/
Radio Rivendell broadcasts fantasy/movie soundtracks like: LoTH, Last Samuri, Braveheart; to gamer's soundtracks; and artists like Clannad, Lorrenna McKennitt, David Arkenstone, etc. I found it in one of the NaNo Forums--the topic was 'what music do you listen to, while ...' I believe we've addressed that same question here some time back. ANYway---
My answer to the forum question was while I worked on part two I tuned in and 'cranked up' the local 80s Rock Classic/Archive station. When I worked on the flashbacks, I found that I liked listening to Radio Rivendell because its 'primarily' instrumentals and it just seemed to fit better.
The station was on as I polished my my latest blog entry, so-- I thought I would add a link just in case anyone else might want to "tune in."

No, I don't blog.
I have to agree with you about the lack of time to read a lot of blogs, Darlene. It can absorb a lot of valuable time. (And we're glad you're back with us!)
Unf. I tried to find your niece's blog, but I got an error message. I'm sure you're proud of her and her work. ;-)
You have a good point about how much of your life you're comfortable sharing with strangers. That can be a real problem looking for a place to happen, I think.
Does your extended family have a blog or MySpace to keep up with each other? I know that they can be created and accessed by only those who're invited although I haven't checked into that. In some ways', I think it might be a nifty idea.
And yep, time does seem to be an issue. There are only so many hours aren't there?
Thanks for your thoughts,
Blogs can be fun, can't they? What sort of things would you consider including in a general writer's blog?
Do you read other blogs for entertainment, or do you go with the expectation of learning something new, etc?
Well, I checked out the link and it looks interesting, but it took me a while to even find out how to access the music. And now it looks like I will either have to join or figure out how to make my player play the music. A bit frustrating. And unf. those sort of thiings might keep me from actually using the site.
However, I adore David Arkenstone and I have five of his albums on my computer as one large file ... so just click, play and write.
I'll have to try out the link again when I have more time and patience to get it to work.
I can certainly respect that sentiment, Faith. There does seem to be a line between what is acceptable as chit-chat and keeping up, and what is just voyeurism and venting. I guess it's a matter of what's comfortable for you.
Thanks for your thoughts.
