Blogging About Blogging
Awareness of the other blogs (and blog-like objects). This one is on point for a narrow audience. In the Instagram highlights, dressagequeen_of_memes has compiled advice on competing at the USDF Finals at KHP. Also of interest to us tackbox quarterbacks. [Referral Saturday]
Like writing the blog.
Like that the blog is daily. [Weekends Not Off]
Am questioning if taking all day to write one post is the best use of my time. Other things to do, both chores and things I want to do.
For example, the post I wrote on Thursday required data compilation, photo processing, and organizing my thoughts on the subject of walking. I didn’t finish until 4:30 pm. By the time I got the mail, took the dog out, and did the barn water, I was riding at dusk. Did I enjoy writing the post? Yes. Was the resource allocation the best reflection of my priorities? No. [October Walks]
The blog is a hedge that grows out of control if not pruned back. The blog is a time sink that expands if I don’t keep an eye on it. Pick your metaphor. This is me reeling it back in.
Short version. Blog not going anywhere. Working to improve my time management. Expect shorter posts. For a while, at least.

Your persistence is commendable. Much to your readers’ pleasure.
I completely get it, your quandary, but I also enjoy your posts. Daily would slay me. Every five days works better for me, and even with that schedule, I found in the past few months I missed a couple. AND I want to do NaNo this November—the day after tomorrow! There have been times when I wrote more days in a month than I didn’t. Then I could not do that but every five days was not often enough. NaNo daily for a month . . . we’ll see. I will still read your posts each day.
I don’t write to any particular schedule. I wish I could. Health issues here, other stuff there…
Brevity seems to be working well. (One advantage to late commenting.) Daily because otherwise I’d never get to it.
