A lot of people say that blogging is a waste of time.
A friend of mine won’t read blogs [not even this one] because they are not “real” writing. I think he only reads Kevin Myers.
However I have found some real uses for blogging.
The first one happened yesterday. I was nosing around and came across a site that allows you select the music of your choice and put it on a playlist. Even better, you can then incorporate that playlist in your blog.
Of course, I had to do this. I set up a page on this site called ‘My Music’, where it starts to play as soon as the page opens. This is great because I open it in a separate browser and have my music playing in the background. There isn’t a great choice in it at the moment, and a few of the tracks are broken, but give me time…..
The second time that blogs came in handy was this morning.
I had set aside today to do some accounting. Now I hate accounting or any sort of paperwork. I need a secretary. I used to have one but she left in a huff. I was cleared in the court case through lack of evidence.
Anyway, I was just settling into my accounts, when I got a frantic e-mail. A fellow blogger was in trouble. I won’t tell you her name as you all know her and love her, and I don’t want to bandy names about. It transpired that her site was down and could I help? See – my reputation is spreading!
I was delighted. I could put the books away and do some messing on another persons site. As it happened, the site fixed itself [cheap and nasty hosting!!], but I now have an excuse that my brain is too tired and the books can stay away until tomorrow.
So I can sit back now. I’ll leave my blog running, so I can have some quiet music, and I might have a little nap……..
Blogs are great!
