>7 Habits of Highly Effective Bloggers

>Cut out the “effective”. Cut out also the plural “bloggers”. So “highly” doesn’t fit in there anymore. Okay, this is just about me and my blogging habits.

Blogger Habit 1:
I will look for something to blog about in the middle of a party, in the middle of my work day, even in the middle of a conversation – mentally, of course! I’m afraid that at this rate, my life will soon cease to be anything more than a blog!

Blogger Habit 2:
I will not try to de-addict. Period.

Blogger Habit 3:
I will talk incessantly about myself on my blog. Not about current affairs or news or politics or anything else that does not affect me.

Blogger Habit 4:
I will be nice to you if you vist my blog. And I’ll drop in to say hello at yours. Howzzat for courtesy?

Blogger Habit 5:
I will visit half a dozen new blogs everyday. Just because I have so much free time on hand these days. And there are so many great blogs around.

Blogger Habit 6:
I will log in ten times in a day to check the comments space. I admit, I dig the attention. And the reactions.

Blogger Habit 7:
Something I picked up from I-don’t-know-where recently: a penchant for long titles.

Like this: And other reasons why I think I must be growing old.
And this: What I write when I’m feeling low
And more: Why he’s from Mars and I’m from Venus
And the one that takes the cake: Finding a title for this post is as difficult as finding a suitable boy. Or girl.

What are your blogging habits?

  3. >:) Agree with all except the last one. I really cant seem to think of interesting captions for my posts! But yes, I check my email a thousand times a day for comments :-)) Everything I do, everything I see, I keep thinking if I can ,in anyway,put it up as a post! I dont necessarily talk about myself, but definitely not about social issues and politics etc. On second thoughts, I do always talk about myself :-)) and no matter what anybody says, I`m not ready to de-addict :-))Here`s to us!

  11. >:)one habit of mine…my laptop contains almost 100-110 word files with incomplete stories..whenever some concept strikes me i jot down two three sentences and leave it for some time later for the creative mind to get refreshed…then, that remains as just another word document in my laptop..!!:)
