Another approach to blogging: Bus-blogging

As mentioned a week ago, I have taken a long hiatus towards blogging. In fact, I have not been writing at all  between March and April, but then, an amazing thing. I have started to use my ipad to do a LOT of writing on the bus. I bought a bluetooth wireless keyboard, and for some reason each morning in the bus I can write a lot of stuff. Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to upload my content from work, and when I come home, I don’t have the time to do so, so I have been procrastinating a lot. But eventually my bus-writing will make it hear. I have been writing some long pieces which eventually will make it here. (One will be here next week).

I’m going to make a wild prediction and say that 2011 will probably be my most productive year for writing in a decade. Blogging has never been number one priority for me (other writing is), but I find that I use my blog for lots of things. And even though I have not been writing, I have been adding things or editing old posts or responding to comments – and of course, I have been reading your comments when you post them.

Ironically I have not been using the wordpress plugin for the ipad (I don’t trust that application enough). Bus-blogging is good for free writing, and in fact, I am trying to segment my fiction story ideas to allow me to write different segments on the bus; I have a finish that I will finish my nanowrimo project from two years ago on the bus.

I am tempted to mention some goodies in the pipeline, but no; I fear that will place a curse on the things I write. Instead, I’ll mention that my goal for the end of the year is to produce a free compilation ebook called Noncrappy Things from My Blog.

Two other notes. My hosting service has been giving me trouble about system resources so I shortened my home page until I have time to investigate. I have two other sites I am working on, so my blog takes a back seat to those efforts (though I surely will link to them in good time).  I think that I’ll be spending more time writing book reviews and general commentary about literature – among other things.

To those who check here periodically to see what I’m up to, rest assured that this blog is alive and kicking..
