I don’t know about you, but I sometimes struggle to know what to say on the various blog posts I write across the web and this one is no exception; in fact, it’s why it’s now mostly author interviews. But all that is about to change ….! More coming soon about that.

I’ve been wandering round a few blogs recently because of various activities I’ve been involved in, I’ve also been social media spotting too and there seems to be a bit of theme developing. Perhaps I ought to explain further before I try and head into this post! Working as a social media strategist I often advise clients to work with the social networks, to write blog posts and to share on the social networks; I hope I take them through a process which involves them learning how to ‘have a conversation’ in whichever network they happen to find themselves.
Wow, today I’m celebrating 400 posts written on Woman on the Edge of Reality. It’s quite an achievement given how I started out in 2006, not really knowing what I was going to be writing about and occasionally adding a post or two, because I felt guilty for not doing anything. So today, I thought I’d cheat a little and share some links to a few of my personal favourite posts from the past six years which you might like too. Tomorrow, I’ll be back with something more normal, but for today it’s champagne all round I think.
I returned to my desk and computer this morning with a heavy heart. It had been a brilliant weekend what with the Olympic buzz all over the UK, then two days with friends watching … the Olympics of course plus being down on the beach for some of the events and sailing happening in Weymouth (which is very close to where I live in Dorset). Coming back to a message from the lovely Soph over at sphrbn.wordpress.com informing me that she had nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award was a real treat. Thank you Soph, I really appreciate it.
WordPress is the ice-cream of website development software with two different flavours to choose from. The vanilla, if you like is the free and hosted version you’ll find at wordpress.com (like this particular blog); the strawberry is the self hosted version you download and host yourself that you can pick up for … well … nothing … at wordpress.org.
Over the last couple of months I’ve noticed a number of my compatriots with popular blogs moving away from WordPress.com in order to have more ‘freedom’ on their self hosted WordPress website. And, I’ve wanted to scream … “NOOOOOOO, stop and think about this first”.
The kind people at WordPress.com have just sent me a link to my ‘Year of Blogging 2011‘. An opportunity to review my activities on my blog, Woman on the Edge of Reality. When I read through them I must admit to be a little disappointed in myself and then I realised that I could easily do better. I haven’t been as active on my blog as I could have been and I have regularly posted about ‘doing better’ or ‘writing more’ and have yet to achieve both of these aims. So why promise something if I’m unable to deliver?
Ok, so I’m finally up and running again after a brief sojourn in the Antipodes and another month setting up systems and procedures to manage the flood of work that is flowing in. Head and parapet spring to mind though as once again, I’m promising the earth (to myself) and hopefully this time (having far more checks and balances in place) I’ll actually be able to schedule in the time to do everything I want to do which when listed doesn’t seem like a lot.
