Breaking a Rule
I have previously expounded on what I've called Dinosaur's Blogging Rules, and about a month after that I also posted My Personal Blogging Rules. In case you don't feel like reading both of those previous posts for the detailed discussions, here are the actual rules:
Dino's Blogging Rules:
- Write well.
- Say something.
- Mix it up.
- No commercials.
- Comment rarely.
- Blogging about blogging is boring.
- It's more about the writing than the readers.
It's Personal Rule #3: I really do think that blogging about blogging is just boring. So far, I think I've done a pretty decent job of refraining from posts like:
Going on vacation. Blogging will be light for a while.I've just gone and come. I realize some readers probably care about me as a person (amusing, given my persona as a large, extinct reptile) and may become concerned about a prolonged lack of posting. But I would also hope they would get a life, even as they assume that I am doing the same. But now I find myself wanting to explain why blogging may be a little lighter than usual for the next few weeks or months, even though it means breaking one of my own rules.
It's because I've gotten involved in several *paying* writing projects of late, both on the internet and in the Real World(tm). My self-imposed goal is 1000 words per day at least until October, which should put me in good shape to meet contractual deadlines. Although I'm not (yet) at liberty to say more, suffice it to say that there is an extremely exciting announcement in the works.
And oh yeah: Yesterday was my second Blogiversary. Two years of Dino Blogging has been great fun. Who knows what the next two may bring?
