Hello all. You will notice that this post is somewhere close to 7 hours later than I usually post. It has been, as the title suggests, a long day. I am not just trying to complain. I could do that. But I won’t. I did however learn how to take apart my laptop and get the punch out of it. Presidents Day and the kids home from school do not necessarily make for the writing time bliss that I have allocated for a normal day.

Suffice it to say, I have post ideas now but no posts written. Yet another reason to join the Pre-Writing Challenge! We are beginning February 19th and will be going for a month in order to have 2 weeks worth of posts prewritten. See my page Here for more info. Would have come in handy for today as it would have on Friday!

So this brings me to today’s post. I have been debating the virtues of taking the weekend off. This weekend I scheduled some tweets to go out on Saturday for my fiction posts and then I didn’t get back on the computer for much of anything! It was kind of nice, not chaining myself to my laptop but I have hardly any traffic to show for it.

This may not be a bad thing. The good news is that I actually had traffic for 2 days with hardly any promotion. Not much traffic, mind you but some. That is the first step to becoming one of the big bloggers I think. Getting traffic without doing anything. Of course if I don’t do anything during the week my blog will fade and I will turn into nothing but a statistic; one of the failed bloggers.

I still am not going to post on Sunday. I am still going to post fiction on Saturday and put out e-books of said fiction when they are all out there. I will have some posts to post when I have issues with life. I was beginning to question whether it was worth posting or commenting on the weekends. It may be. I don’t think I will be doing anything different though.

If you are reading this Thank you! I will have more tomorrow at a more reasonable time. And it will be about hitting things.
Justin

  1. Yikes! I would probably cry if punch got spilled into my laptop. Way to handle it more effectively than that…and still get a post up. I’m impressed.

    • luckily punch only got on the bottom part of the keyboard and some places there were no cracks. I was quick getting it cleaned up. I still need a new keyboard, sometimes a few keys do funny things still. Luckily a new keyboard is less than $20!
      Thanks for reading I am starting my post titles to work on for the challenge.

  2. Interesting post and gives me some thought about the writing challenge. I have got something to do tomorrow on my list now and that is to check out some of the prewriting challenge. Thanks justin.

  3. You can actually fix a laptop? Who knew? First time here so I am curious about prewriting. Interestnig visual images come to mind. Have to check it out.
