- Hey, did I hit enough keywords in my title? Because that’s what helps get my blog noticed, don’t you know?
If you can’t tell by now, I don’t give much of a flying fig about hitting the proper keywords in my titles. I believe in trying to make them entertaining. Or at least reference what my post is about. I’m certainly not a popular blog. You can tell that by the number of comments I get for each post. Not that I’m knocking what I have. I love those of you who comment regularly. And I thank you for that. Without you guys, I’d feel like I was just talking to myself.
Heck, most of the time I probably am anyway (non-blogwise).
- Did I spend sufficient time on Facebook? Guest blogging? Because if I’m not everywhere, how will people find me?
I spend way too much time on Facebook and for what? It’s not like I’m posting anything worthwhile. Heck, it’d be nice if I posted anything at all. I just lurk and flounder. How is that helping me any except take time away from what I should be doing? And as luck would have it, I’m hosting the Sizzle and Sass Facebook page starting Sunday. What timing, huh? I am not prepared. I am never prepared.
I’m my own worst enemy.
- Did I sit my butt in chair and put my hands on keyboard? Because if I don’t get three books released in a year, I might as well give up. Right?
I have been writing (revising) more lately. But certainly not three books worth. I swear I wrote more when I had a job. Then again, I wasn’t published yet, either. I really think that has a lot to do with it.
Unfortunately, I’ve let the outside world intimidate me into thinking I need to do all this stuff to sell books and I need to STOP. I mean, I want to sell books. Actually, I just want people to read my books. Kind of hard for them to do that when they don’t know I exist. And they don’t know I exist because I’m not everywhere. But I can’t be everywhere and I’m not so sure I want to be.
Am I messed up or what?
And in other super FRUSTRATED news… My hard drive is failing. Again. UGH!! Spent an hour on the phone yesterday with a tech from Dell. Now they’re sending me a new hard drive (hubby can replace it—thank goodness!). If this next one goes out, we’re going to have to insist they replace the laptop, because SOMETHING must be going on to cause the hard drives to fail. In the meantime, I’m still using BigRed (when I can get it turned on, that is), but saving my files on a flash drive (luckily I was able to back up everything—whew!!).
Tonight, though, I’m going to have some fun. The Penguins are in
to play the Blue Jackets and I’ll be there to watch. Can’t wait. Let’s go
Have a great weekend!
