I Think I Can, I Think I Can...

Okay, here's the deal. This little blue caboose is going to try and get back into blojo mode and blog every day, or at the very least, every couple of days. May be short on our busy school holiday's days, but at least something. Even perchance just a quick "Toot, toot!" Now, as Trav seems to have dropped his Memoir Monday mode (*mutter*mutter**curse*curse*) I may have to come up with some other bandwagon to hitch my tales of a tiny terror onto.



Oh, look, screw it I will try one more time to kickstart the dinosaur tomorrow, so start thinking up your Monday Memoirs and I'll put in a McLinky thingy in the post. If this post HINTING for him to step up doesn't work, and I'll go kick Trav one to see if he will at least direct people here if HE doesn't get off his increasingly smaller butt and do it (hint, hint)...

Ooh, excitement - it now seems, according to his blog, he intends to! Remember that he is a yank, and it means it will be put up at some ungodly hour late on Monday, so I will still post here tomorrow arvo, and then edit to link to the TRAV! (Maybe I should have read the small print on his blog before coming in to blurb, oops. My bad.)

Oh, and people, if you wish to find out the story behind the Toot Toot, you'll need to tune in tomorrow.

And if you like what you read please follow, or at least comment so I get a little of my much needed positive feedback (it is hard being a blogger, we do crave some accolades you know).  Oh another thing - hey you lot - ever noticed how much I link your blogs when I refer to them? Hell, ever noticed how much I refer to other blogs at all? Well - how about some reciprocating, huh?


I'm feeling a little neglected over here in the closet...

Well my dear MM - I don't think you can - I know you can. But even when you are in a time of quietness - I still pop over and check because that's what bloggy friends do. Enjoy the school holidays with the boys. xxx

Looking forward to the Toot Toot story ;)

I LOVE your writing. I read it regularly. And I have it linked on my blog, too.

Oh, and I am a Yank, like your friend, but I don't stay up ungodly hours.

I'd love to see more followers on my blog, but many of the folks that read it don't seem to feel comfortable putting their mug on a blog and always comment anonymous. You're blog is WILDLY cool and successful; so how do you do it? How do you generate the readers? Curious minds want to know!

I think the original way people found me was from me commenting and following the blogs I love. The more I followed (and probably some unabashed begging in there too), the more followed me. Then came the blog this challenges and NaBloPoMo, and later Memoir Mondays and FlogYaBlog...

Even if Trav (off to check out that blog now) reinstates Memoir Mondays, you should still start a new one - I'll hitch my bandwagon to yours. I really need some kind of inspiration to keep my blogging regularly.

And I'm a linker already. So nuh. Just sayin..

Sending you a shitload of Fortitude for the everyday blogging thing. That stuff is not for the weak of heart. Hehehe.

Madmother said...

Aah, but Brenda did you note I did not commit to a time frame for this, lol...

Okay, all, these blogging things that you mention above (Flog Your Blog, Memoir Monday, etc. )seem pretty cool. How do you participate? Is this an Aussie thing only? I need to shake things up a bit over at Gritty City Woman. Thanks for the advice MM.
