Blogging Styles

I'm sure most of you, like me, have a full time job and commitments outside of work. So how do you keep up with your blogging?

My blogging style is a bit ad hoc. If I'm doing a more 'formal' blog post, like an interview or a feature, I may prepare the blog entry in advance. Often times, I blog at night (on whatever topic comes to me, like tonight) and the entry goes live either immediately or the next day. Sometimes if I'm organized enough, I write out a potential list of topics for the week ahead.

Do you blog everyday? Do you write a whole slew at once and then scheduled them to go live? How do you balance blogging (not to mention blog stalking) with your schedule?

Glad to know someone is as random as I am. I hardly ever have time for a "slew."
I try to get a few done and then I get behind and do it every day, which I prefer. I'm much better on the fly. ;)

I have been trying to write once a day and it has been really fun! Sort of challenging myself to write more and be more creative. I agree though I rarely have time for lots at once!

This might sound weird, but I "write" a lot of my blog entries in my head while I work out. I don't ever hold onto entries, I'll always post live right after I type, so if you ever see something go up at 4 in the morning, I was up at 4 in the morning. =)

I have a few scheduled ahead, then I adjust every day, squeezing in a few "current" ones... I also write in my head all the time (sometimes it keeps me up at night), so it's usually pretty quick and easy to write them down. I challenge myself to write, and usually post every day just as a sort of exercise in perseverance (because before, I was pretty fickle, and now that I've found something I really like, I try to pursue it fully). But I can never seem to be able to shut up anyway!

My old blog was just for me and I posted a lot! Now that I blog for business I find it much more challenging to fit it into an actual work day. I really should schedule it - like first thing in the morning, but then sometimes it feels forced. I'll eventually work it out. Thanks for stopping by!

I write the Question of the Day every day. That has been fun but challenging. Not so much get my butt in the chair challenging, but challenging to come up with questions people will want to answer every day.

And the Suzie Foods blog is more intermittent. I blog about recipes when I cook something interesting. Which unfortunately, isn't every day!

My blog style is kind of random, my goal is to post everyday, but its a lot more like every other day.

I am totally ad hoc too. I try to blog everyday but dont always succeed. But finding time to peruse through my favorite blogs is the hardest part, I usually try to sneak it throughout my day and hope no one else at work sees!

Thanks everyone for satisfying my curiosity about your blogging style. Glad to hear we're all in the same boat...(especially the blogstalking at work bit!)

Blog stalking takes up far too much of my time! Writing is quick and easy compared to that.

I try and write a couple but them I think of what the hell just post them!
