Time flies…

They say time flies when you are having fun.  Well, September must have been a really fun month.  The last time I posted on this blog was on the first day of the month.  Now here we are on the last day of the month.

Ironically, the title of my last blog post was “Yes, I am a blogger.”  Well, you might not think so since I don’t write much.  But I have kept up on my cub scouting blog.  And I have posted once or twice on my gardening blog.  You would think that I could write a blog about how not to be a blogger if you want to grow your following.  I certainly have experience with that.

September has been busy.  With a son that is now involved in football, cub scouts, gardening and other yard work, life…the time has gone by fast.  And unfortunately, October doesn’t look any less busy.

For October, I have everything that was listed for September, plus an afternoon in court, a trip to Boise and a trip to Chicago.  Oh yeah, plus re-painting the living room and adding a tile entryway in preparation for some new warm, soft carpet to cover our cold, hard wood.  I hope to blog in between those things so you can get a glimpse of the fun we are having.

I am sure that I will have a desire to blog more than I will have time to do it.  Maybe I will invest in voice-to-text software so I can dictate a blog in a micro-recorder while driving to and from work.

Oh wait…tomorrow is the first of October.  Forget about September…where has 2012 gone?  It must have been really fun ’cause it has gone by in the blink of an eye.

The view is going to change a little.  I hope to share the view more often.  Hopefully it will get better…the view that is.  And then I can maintain the blogger status.

Yes, I am a blogger!

Hi, my name is Randy, and I am a blogger.  But I’m not an addict.  I don’t need to attend some “bloggers anonymous” meeting for excessive addiction.  Heck, there are a lot of people who didn’t even know I blog.  Part of the reason for that is because I don’t blog often enough.  And I don’t write on topics that go viral.  I don’t even get picked for the “Fresh Pressed” page on WordPress‘s home page because I don’t write on trending topics.

I don’t have many followers, and most of my reads come because I post on Facebook and Twitter where “friends” and “followers” sometimes give a cordial view.

But the thing that is most interesting about the whole blogging experience: I have three blogs.  Yep.  Three.  I have this blog, one about gardening and raising chickens, and one about being a Cub Scout den leader and the many experiences that we have each week.

And now I have had thoughts about starting a fourth blog.  But I’m not sure.  It isn’t that I am hoping to gain more readers with different blogs linking to each other.  I don’t do that now.  But it would give me a chance to diversify what I write about and keep the blog separated based on topics so that they are easier to find.  Is that a bad idea?

Maybe I will just end up getting myself in over my head.  Four blogs and not a lot of time to write.  Maybe one of my other blogs, possibly this one, will be a little more neglected if I spend time on another one.  It isn’t like I have more time available to write another one.  But you as a reader may enjoy it.  Maybe the blogosphere will be able to find me easier if I am more defined on my topics.  I don’t know…I’m not a blogging expert.  Maybe this is where I ask my fellow blogging group people to give me some pointers.

Regardless, I do enjoy this.  And I want to write more.  But I’m not addicted.  If anything, I am conflicted.
