Making Time to Blog

January 20th, 2010 Fred Leave a comment Go to comments

It has been a little over two weeks since I created my blog.  I guess my initial idea was that I would write a little bit each day, something like an online diary, just letting people know what is happening in my life and what I am thinking about.

In these two weeks, I managed to make only a few posts.  Every day, I have all these ideas about things to put up on my website, but I just never get round to actually sitting down and blogging about it.

I guess the trick is to make a little time every day, your “blog time”, and to get into the habit of writing down your thoughts during that time.  Any avid bloggers out there that can make some suggestions?

On two related ideas.  Firstly I am wondering whether to change the publishing dates of my blog entries to reflect the historical time an event happened, rather than the actual time of blogging… I guess both have their pros and cons.  Secondly, I am resizing the images I upload to about 600×450 pixels and saving them in .jpg low quality.  These result in images with file sizes of about 12-14KB, which loads quickly and don’t take up to much storage space on my web server.  I might be mistaken, but I suspect most people will only browse through the images, and never really print them, so this shouldn’t be an issue.  Any thoughts on these two topics?
