I Am So Screwed

Unfortunately, my computer is on strike again; it is the same old story of it not wanting to stay on when it is powered on.

This looks as though it is going to take sometime before things are back to normal; as a result of this, I will not be in a position to post as often as I would like, or to peruse your posts like I am accustomed doing.

I intend to get things up and running in a timely manner

I thought that it is only fair to let you know that I am experiencing some technical difficulties and that I am not wilfully staying away from the blogosphere.

You will be missed!

Just Pondering Part 729

Pen.pngIt is without a doubt, that a lot of us are unable to visit all the blogs from the people that we are following; in most cases, the numbers are huge.

Some people can barely manage to visit the blogs of 35 people daily, yet they are following over 100 bloggers; while there is nothing wrong in this, the issues lies in being unable to check them all and if we were to do so, it would consume many hours within our day (The reality is: we have our lives to live; which involves going to our place of employment, doing our chores and other forms of activities that cannot be done on the internet).

What some of us are unaware of is: that some people would unfollow you if you fail to visit their blog; they sum up the idea that you don’t really care about them and they will drop you like a hot potato and go in search of other bloggers who would shower them with attention.

Honestly, I try my best to check out the posts of all those whom I am following; this is done via my WordPress Reader and I have a sneaky suspicion that all of the bloggers I am following don’t show up there when their articles are posted.

If you have developed a technique that enables you to visit all of the blogs you are following in one day (or even in a week’s time) please let me know; at the moment, that task is an impossible one for me.

PenFor the month of July, I will be posting way less by choice.

If you were to look at my archives for June, you would notice that I posted less (Some people complained that I was posting too much and I granted them their wish).

Although I like posting a lot, I don’t want you to get fed up of me. There is an old saying: “Too much of a good thing is no good!”

As I have said in a past post, I would like to focus my attention more on my blog over at Google Blogger; this shouldn’t be a cause for concern, because I am not abandoning WordPress (I am merely cutting down on the number of posts by approximately ninety-five percent).

I also believe that many of you are familiar with my other blog, The Chronicles Of Renard; if you are not, I recommend that you get acquainted with it (You will find lots of interesting posts there and you would also know what I am up too; I would like you to support my other blog and comment on it too; the Disqus plugin has made it easy for anyone to comment; so you don’t have to join Google Blogger to be able to comment on The Chronicles Of Renard).

I will continue to share the links to the post from my other blog here on Renard Moreau Presents; that way, you wouldn’t feel left out.

Seven Tips That Would Make Blogging Easier For You

Recently, someone posted on WordPress that blogging is hard work.

“Hard work?” I uttered quietly, feeling bewildered by what the blogger had said earlier on.

I am of the opinion that if any blogger perceives blogging as hard word, they are approaching it from a wrong angle.

Dear Friends, blogging is simple, once you have the know-how and the correct mindset.

Here is my unique approach to blogging:

1.) Know Thyself

It is important that you have an awareness of your psychological makeup; for example: Are you a morning person, or a night person?

Now, you are probably wondering: “What does being a morning person or a night person have to do with all of this?”

And, I will tell you: “Everything!”

If you are a morning person your highest level of creativity would be within the daytime; whereas, if you are a night person your highest level of creativity would be at night-time; bloggers should know what category that they fall into.

2.) Make Up Your Mind To Have Fun

Once you have made up your mind to have fun, you can consider yourself halfway across the hurdle; the rest is up to you by finding something to blog about.

When you are engaged in a fun activity, it doesn’t feel as though you are submerged in a tiresome task.

So, it would be in your best interest to have fun when you are blogging, because it works to your advantage.

3.) Make Quick Decisions

Many of us have only a certain amount of time allotted to internet activities; the rest of our time is spent in the real word.

Therefore, we need to think quickly of a topic; if we are unable to do that, we end up staring needlessly at a blank computer screen (And, that is time wasted).

4.) Always Keep A Notebook And Pen On You

The sole purpose of always having a notebook and a pen on you is, to immediately write any ideas down that you may receive during the time you are up and about.

There is no reason why we should allow our inspirational ideas to be wasted.

And, the best part of all of this being: that you could open your notebook to review your ideas while you are in front of your computer (Which is another great time-saver).

5.) Believe In Yourself

In most cases, it is doubt in your ability to blog that prevents you from making any sort of progress in the blogosphere.

It is imperative that you truly believe that you can blog, because if you don’t, you will simply remain where you are.

6.) Learn To Use Various Devices

Today’s blogger needs to be highly versatile. They must not only know how to blog on a desktop computer or a laptop computer; they must also know how to blog on a tablet and a smartphone; for example: if something happens to go wrong with their laptop computer, they can quickly switch to another device and carry on with their blogging.

7.) Schedule A Portion Of Your Posts

Now, you have noticed that I recommended that you schedule a portion of your posts and not all of it (If you like scheduling all of your posts, that is fine with me).

Scheduling one’s post is a time-saver; you cannot be in front of the computer around the clock.

Scheduling a portion of your posts allows you to have some quality time for yourself; it allows you the opportunity to engage yourself in other activities of your choice.

Scheduling posts is also ideal for those busy people who are always on the go.

I have often heard the excuse: “I have been tied up with a lot of work lately. So, I didn’t have the time to update my posts;” Scheduling your posts can help you out with that issue.

The Conclusion

I always believed that with proper planning in place, one can alleviate many of the so-called nuances that comes along with blogging.

Blogging should be something that you enjoy and not something that gives you a headache; once you have it figured out, it is no longer hard work — it becomes an activity that you will always want to engage yourself in.

No matter the steps of precaution that we take, we would occasionally lose posts that we worked on (This happens on rare occasions and it leaves me baffled, figuring out  what went wrong).

I guess that is the downside of technology; it gives us those negative surprises that sends us to create a whole new post from scratch.

Besides, I know for a fact that technology is not perfect.

Sesame Street: Bert and Ernie’s Great Adventures — Lost Elephant

The Social Network Issue

Social Network IconsAlmost everyone on the planet heard about PRISMNSA’s super-spy program.

Now, since you’ve heard about the spying scandal in regards to our social networks, do you feel differently about social networks; I bet you do!

Since the controversy, many people thought about deleting their Facebook and Google Plus accounts, to name a few (Actually, there were some who did just that).

In my case, I have no intentions of deleting my Twitter account and I don’t want to separate myself from the people on Facebook.

In the meantime, we can limit the information that we post of ourselves (or post no information of ourselves) on the social networks that we are a part of.

If you have been doing a wonderful service of enlightening people via your posts, it would be unfair to delete those social networks that you have been spreading your messages of Light on.

In reality, we don’t need social networks; it is just a choice that we have made on our behalf to utilize them for the betterment of mankind.

However, the real issue is: the violation of the user’s privacy.

The choice is always ours to delete those social network accounts of ours. But, I have a strong feeling that the intelligence agencies can still acquire information about us, with or without, the use of social networks.
