How Often Should One Blog?

People who write a blog will often ask themselves the inevitable question of how often they should post things on it. I wish I could provide an all-knowing solution that will tell you how to write just enough to remain relevant while simultaneously retaining just the right blend of interesting, exciting, and mysterious, but… I can’t.

25 Blog Post Ideas For Those Who Just Want To Write

Talking Fruit: 5 Types I’d Like To Try

As I munched on my bowl of yellow cherries and thought about things that I should write about earlier today, I’ve realized how little fruit I would be able to name if asked. As is probably the case with many other people. We all know about apples and oranges, as an example, but what about mangosteens? Naranjillas? We will… Read more »

Blogging, Beginnings, and Coming Full Circle

Once upon a time, I had a blog. One  that never took off the ground quite like I had wanted it to, but where I would write fairly frequently nevertheless. And then, of course, I ended up getting a job that took a heavy toll on me, both in terms of emotions and actual time, and I gave… Read more »
