The idea behind this is that readers of For The Love of Blogs send in their questions and then the readers answer them. You can then share the love by commenting on other peoples responses.
So these are today’s questions and the members who asked them:
King Corvid –
“What do you do when you run out of things to do on the internet?”
Is it possible to run out of things to do on the internet? If I run out of things I start commenting on as many friends’ FB statuses or Twitter messages as I can. With Twitter you can tweet as much as you like but it’s about connecting so it’s good to talk to other people.
“How do you gain and keep followers?”
I don’t actually know lol. I guess you go through seasons so sometimes people are in your life for a reason and then they go away again or they stay. I think that’s the same with blog followers. Also talk to them – make them feel welcome – respond to the comments that they leave on your blog.
“What are your blogging inspirations?”
My day to day life is a huge chunk of it. That’s where I start writing and then I see what happens after that. The blogs that inspire me include LacyLike, Life in Technicolour and Today’s Letters.
“Do you edit your posts?”
Sometimes – I might go back and realise that there are mistakes or things that need tweaking and then change them. Also I might want to add bits but there isn’t enough for a whole post so I add a few sentences on the end.
“How much time do you spend blogging?”
It can vary, I can spend a whole Saturday on writing lots of posts to spread out over the next few weeks or so – other times I go for a whole fortnight and write like two posts.
So this is all I feel the brain power to do. It suddenly dawned on me at the weekend that the Birmingham Vintage Fair that Rickie is organising is in two weekends time (well it’s not this weekend coming but the one after) and we’d discussed about me taking some of the bits and pieces that I can make and see how well they go down (and the bits that aren’t used can be put onto Etsy and I can open my store). On Saturday we went shopping for some bits so that I could kick off two of my ideas (well actually we were going for the first idea and Chris sprung up with another idea – I think he secretly choose it because it would involve melting things and pretending to be a scientist for a bit! We started Part One yesterday because it only took a few minutes followed by cooling time. Part Two might be this evening – between knitting Part Three. Thankfully they are all reasonably small bits so I can carry them in my overnight bag on the train.
