Still Alive

As GLaDOS would say, I’m still alive.

As it goes, blogging with a full time job is rough. Especially when I am working 50+ hour weeks. Hiring and training. Also, Borderlands 2. A vacation. These things.

I haven’t been doing much of any writing. Not much on Tumblr. Or Twitter. Or for my own purposes. I have some small starts. Photos for my local short story, for use on Tumblr. I am thinking about going with a cruise rather than a hotel for my multi-character story (guess I’ll have to take notes on my cruise next month…). I tried writing up the Dungeons & Dragons game I am playing in, talking through events after the fact. Didn’t seem like a good use of time. But then, setting it aside, I haven’tput anything else in its place.

So what does the blogger do when they have fallen off the wagon? That’s the piece that’s not mentioned in class, the harder side of blogging. Most blogs seem to get started full of fire on the writer’s part, then fade. So what do I do?

First, I have been doing at least one thing successfully. I have been reading some blogs on an almost daily basis. Granted, they’re on Tumblr, but it presents the posting really well. And I have reblogged a couple of good things, kind of fun.

Meaning second, I want to find a good RSS reader, to follow my other blogs. Any recommendations?

Because if I can keep up with reading blogs, it will keep me involved with blogging, and the writing will follow.

    Google Reader is my preferred reader. It’s very easy to use, too.

      I want something where I can use it the same on all of my devices, now that I am running a Mac/iPad/iPhone life. One app to rule them all would be nice…
