PattyO writes: “You’ve said that in keeping this blog going you are exercising your writing skills. How much time do you put into this daily? Do you ponder what your daily subject will be, or just write off the cuff? Loading and deciding what, if any, pictures you post must take a bit of time as well.”
Answer: The time I spend on the blog is entirely dependent upon the subject matter. I’ll usually spend anywhere from an hour to three on an entry. Sometimes, I plan ahead (ie. the book club reviews) but usually I just wing it, writing about what happens to capture my interest on the day. Perhaps the most time-consuming aspect is the uploading of pictures. I’ll usually multi-task – either read or watch t.v. – while I’m waiting for them to individually load.
