I decided since it’s a rainy, cold, nasty Monday, I would post blogs on every one of the many personal blogs I write, just as an exercise. Some of them don't get anything posted on them very often, so this is a little personal challenge, but a fun one.
What most folks don't understand about blogging is that search engines like blogs that are refreshed often. So if you blog only occasionally, the search engines will not feature you very well. You may post wonderful content, but if it goes up only once every few months, not many folks are going to see it.
The easiest was my blog for southern poets, The Word Ocean. I posted one of my all-time favorite poems, The Lake Isle of Innisfree, and a gorgeous photo by my friend Lisa Amos. Here is the result. I am still looking for southern poets who would like to be features, so pass this along to anyone southern who loves to write poetry.
I gave some quick tips on how to improve your writing over at The Write Rainmaker. This is the blog for my business, but I also like to just discuss writing in general sometimes, and/or marketing.
Over on my funny dating website I wrote about The Breakup Ultimatum. I am aware of a dating situation regarding someone I know right now and I’d like to just shake them and say ULTIMATUMS DON’T WORK! I can’t really, though, because the Breakup Ultimatum worked for my mom, many years ago. However, the “don’t try this at home kids” admonishment is appropriate here…
I talked about one of my fave actors of all time, Christopher Walken over at Scribblerchick's Movie Dish. If I ever get a chance to watch a movie with him in it, I do, even if the movie isn’t great. Walken is always fun to watch.
Finally, just as an added bonus, if you want to watch something to get in the holiday mood, check out this awesome video:
