On average, how many hours a day do you spend on your blog during the week? (including anything blog related like social media)

Probably too many.  And also not enough.  Trying to streamline it.  Spend more time on the tech side than the writing side.  Y’know, finding photos, resizing photos, cursing at photos.  Adding links to content,  copying and pasting those links, cursing at those links.    Frankly I get so tired of sprucing shit up that I forget about the words.  The words, once I have coffee and Isla leaves for school, are the easiest part.

On average, how many hours a day do you spend on your blog at the weekend? (including anything blog related like social media)

I do stuff on Saturday morning and Sunday morning and the rest of the time I switch off.  I hope.

Daily, how much time do you spend reading other people’s blogs?

I write mine and then I read other people’s.  I also read other people’s blogs on days I don’t post.

How often do you leave comments on other people’s posts?  

As often as I have something to add to the conversation.

How many blogs do you follow?

An embarrassing number.

How often do you post on your blog?

Trying out MWF, and one weekend day.

What social media accounts do you have to go alongside your blog?

The only dedicated thing is the Facebook.  I talk about the blog on Twitter and Instagram and Pinterest and Flipboard.  But those, um, relationships are not exclusive.

Do you have a posting schedule? How do you plan out your posts?  

Yes, maybe.  And most of the time I don’t plan.  I do draft in a notebook, though.

What do you use to take pictures?

Most photos are from the iphone, or the DSLR.

How do you promote your blog?

General good vibes.  And Facebook.  My top referrals are the WordPress reader, Facebook, and Twitter.
