  1. Howdy excellent website! Does running a blog similar to this take a great deal of work?
    I have very little expertise in computer programming however I had been hoping to
    start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, should you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic nevertheless I simply wanted to ask.
    Cheers!

    • Yes, actually it does because it seems to always be in the back of my mind. Of course, that is one reason why, after I wrote my first book, I was not going to write anymore. I hear the news and tend to think “Should I incorporate some of this into a blog post?” I read what some other blogger wrote and something in their blog may trigger me to write something related or to do a bit of research on a similar topic. Actually, quite frequently, it is something almost totally unrelated.
      Sometimes, I struggle to get a couple of paragraphs out with good, cogent, thoughts although most of the time as I reach my concluding paragraphs I look at the word count and think “I’ve got to go back through this and shorten it down somewhat.”
      Some bloggers are more picture oriented than written word oriented.

      Understanding computer programming is almost a thing of the past when it comes to blogging. I blog through “wordpress.com” and there are other options available, their program handles practically all of that “HTML stuff” in the background while still allowing some control in that department for those of us so inclined.

  2. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before
    writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Appreciate it!

    • I tend to take pencil and paper and jot down a few thoughts in bullet point format. They are rarely related to each other, just items that caught my attention from the news and perhaps from my daily devotions. Then I get a cup of coffee, I don’t watch the news on TV because that is designed, whether purposefully or inadvertently is a moot point for now, to shut down your thought processes.
      Then I come back to my desk and do a scan of my bullet points and put a check mark by whichever one seems to stand out most at that point in time and on a separate sheet of paper write a paragraph, still with pencil. Then look back to the bullet points to pick another to write a paragraph on. By that point I’ve usually already started focusing on where I actually want to go which may or may not have anything to do with any of the bullet points. I set the handwritten material aside to save for later and turn to the keyboard to begin work on my first draft. I don’t throw that away because I usually come back to it a little later. I try not to keep more than two or three days worth of those notes around but having them handy instead of tossing them out right away means that prep time for the next writing session may only take a minute or two instead of fifteen.
