Ron got his new Kindle today and looks so happy holding it in his hand and reading intently. I find myself so very glad that he did go ahead and get it. After some of the new has worn off I will give him a copy of Walking Down The Avenue. Not that I would ever try to get him interested in my social networking– we have very happily separate online lives and while we hear about each other’s friends on sites we never visit ourselves, the fact that we don’t either of us talk to the others’ online friends is a big part of what makes our real life relationship work.
I continue to feel weird about my Internet time shifting, writing this post for Thursday on Monday afternoon, just before Tuesday’s post is due to go live. Part of me feels that since I have been scrupulously honest and never tried to make folks believe that my posts are written on the date they are published, I should just quit worrying about it (and quit thinking about it and writing about it). My inner experienced blogger worries that Thursday is often the highest traffic day for most blogs and would be a great day to publish and promote a pillar post, rather than have a personal journal entry as the post for that day. (The part of me that’s tired and just wants to get this done says to just get on with it already. This is a personal blog and if a personal entry is all that you feel up to doing for Thursday then so be it. My inner blogger makes a mental note to schedule this post for Wednesday and go with a better post for the high traffic day.)
My other news today is that after a most excellent #sustainchat with the incredibly charming @organicguru June Stoyer I am seriously contemplating trying to do a small aquaponic garden on my patio. I am thinking that if I do well with it I can then write a how to guide for what appears to be a market on the verge of booming. That I am much more a writer and blogger than a serious #organic type will be confirmed by the fact that I am already hunting for #brownthumb handles and urls, before even ordering Sylvia’s excellent handbook to do some basic research on what would be required.
