The 'blogonundrum'

Is it better to post, even if you don’t have something strong to write, or just let a day drop off the sidebar calendar?

Linda says I’ve had some strong posts lately (and we’ve had some not-so-great ones, too) and recommended letting September 14 go. I mused over this, tempted by the invitation.

True, we spent some time in the new ‘black ops center,’ but we were mostly just getting organized, and are still a long way from any news to report.

Our day, otherwise, was mostly consumed going to the gym, gassing the car, grocery shopping, a trip to K&L to replenish depleted supplies, mainly of Pinot Noir, catching up on important correspondence (more about this later) and cooking what may well be one of our last dinners on the patio Weber this year – fall is in the air today.

But how do you turn that into compelling verbiage? On these occasions,the usual blogger conundrum (especially with no editor to warn when one’s wordcraft drifts into babble) hangs heavily over the keyboard. We’re getting kinda tentative about the ‘post’ button…

    Never hesitate to push the “post” button due to content concerns. Gulker babble is always entertaining and you’re allowed to have a babbly day once in a while. So, thanks for pushing the button… See, sometimes comments can be mostly babble too. I could babble on about broken water heaters, etc. but I won’t. Lucky you.

    Keep a bunch of working blog posts in a text file. When there’s no news, cut & paste.

    Babble on, Gulkers!
