Today, like every other day started in front of a computer working on my blogs. I started my blogs back in 2005. 12 years and more than 6000 posts. It sometimes seems like only yesterday when I was only posting once a day or less than that once a month. In moving to posting every day, I found myself more energized and ready for the posting. Instead of agonizing over every word I posted. If it weren’t a good post, well tomorrow would be better.
When I look back at some of my blogs, I do see some horrible posts. It goes in part with largening, not your audience but your voice. I read and still read hundreds of blog posts over the course of a month. I learn and pick up things from other bloggers sitting at my desk. There are many things I have added; more pictures were one of the things I learned. I suspect the addition of pictures in part also for me coincides with the death of my father.
That got me thinking about how much the blogging tools I use now, have changed in the past 12 years. I used only to use Windows Live Writer, which I still use for my WordPress posts but now only for WordPress. My WordPress blog was once the most currently it is between 2 and four days behind my other web posts. The tools I use the most for blog creation are listed below:
- Microsoft Word (to create the text)
- Logitech Wireless Keyboard
- Logitech Wireless Mouse
- In theory my brain but based on some of my older posts not always true.
The only one on the list that I was using 12 years ago is my brain. The other three have been added over time. I love my Logitech Keyboard and Mouse. They work perfectly and are a great addition to my blogging process.
