Happy Birthday to Deb Day

Actually, Happy Birthday to Deb day is not, as of yet, an official holiday. However since it is her birthday lets take a look back at some posts about blogger pals. Friends, as I say often, are important to have if you’re a blogger. For example friends like our birthday girl. I promise not to get all lovable here, but I’m really glad I know Deb. We’ve been friends for a while now and she’s one of those pals you can almost always get on Skype when you need to whine, rant, or share good news. She’s awesome about sharing [Read more…]

The same goes for posting amount though. If I can only write one post a day for a couple of days because my son is sick, traffic won’t slow, because I [Read more…]

Co-Bloggers – One Cure for the Lazy Blogger

Deb’s last post was a good one. Did you miss it? Well, here it is – Why I’m a Lazy Blogger – And How I Can Improve. Deb noted issues with the blogroll, minimum post schedule, and time to visit other blogs. I’m big time into blogrolls so no issues there. However, I totally get her deal with scheduling to increase posting quotas and finding the time to visit other blogs.
