Blogger Spying


I took the bus yesterday to Boston.  It’s one plush ride, must admit.

The girl directly across from me was a blogger and I learned a valuable lesson.  It seems that not all bloggers are created equal.

The chick was meticulous! Seriously, she spent two full hours blogging.  Carefully, creating content.  Cross-checking. Image meshing. Word smithing, and more.

Confession: I never do that! I’ve got a strict thirty minutes or less rule for fear that I will become so obsessed that I fall into the WordPress site and possibly never return.  Okay, that’s a lie. I’m afraid I won’t actually work on my novel because I’ve dithered my time away blogging. But, I’m impressed by bloggers who do.

You see, I use blogging as a writing warm-up for real work.  It’s an indulgence for a writer to just blast about anything that strikes their fancy.  It’s a quick word vomit.  A literary fart.  That’s it.  That’s all.

But, this blogger.  It was serious, and I for one am impressed.  I did notice her domain name- Patti Runs.  I know the link too, but posting it seems a tad too blog stalkerish.

But, I am so tempted…

    “It’s a quick word vomit. A literary fart.” Hahahahahahahaha!! That is darn good writing, Julie.

  2. Must admit, liked it myself. Saw you Vlog on my phone. Loved it.

  3. I just finished a stint of some serious writing on my blog this week – serious stories, multiple genres, different voices. I did not sleep all week. Like you, blogging is a writing exercise for me each day. I am always in awe of those who can sustain it in a mammoth way.

    How was Boston?
