Wow! For a person that’s been home due to illness I sure have been busy.
I spent the day today cruising the internet for interesting sites and stories to write about, or to link to my sites. I also spent a bit of time at Bl0gClicker and Bl0gExplosion surfing fellow bloggers websites for fun of course but also to earn credits so that my two blogs will be shown in their rotation more often too.
While I was doing all of this surfing and clicking I also found the time to answer a bunch of email. I run 4 mailing lists and have one very large 10 year old website, plus another new website (that I’m slowly working on). My work on the Internet could be a full time job if I let it. Unfortunately I haven’t found a way to make an income out of it yet … but if I do, look out. 🙂
While I was busy on the net today I also found three blogs that one of my Internet friends has created. I know Melissa through our mutual interest in Herpetoculture – the keeping of reptiles and amphibians as pets. She’s always a step ahead of me it seems. She has several large websites, and now It looks like she started blogging last March. I only just started a few weeks ago! I’m behind. 🙂
I’ve added all three of Melissa’s blogs to my blogroll. You might be interested in visiting Lizards in Scarves – a knitting blog with a twist- she has pictures of her iguana’s with her knitted scarves on them. She also created another blog called Eggs in Hats. She seems to have come up with that blog when faced with the dilemma of her turtles laying infertile eggs yet again and feeling guilty over her pets wasted energy. The site is quite amusing. Check it out.
Her first blog seems to have started out like this one- a blog to write out thoughts that just don’t fit on the websites we already run. Melissa’s Miscellani blog is quite interesting to read.
I guess I didn’t do enough today because something compelled me to update my huge website a couple of hours ago! It took me three hours to finish what I was doing … and now I need to go to bed. Ya think? It’s 4:46 am. Yawn.
The one thing that I didn’t do today that I wanted to do was get over to a forum called HerpCenter that I moderate on. Well I haven’t been there for quite a while due to my illness. But since I’ve been busier behind the scenes lately it’s time I get my butt over there and start answering some questions and helping others. I feel bad that I haven’t been there in quite a long time, but as I explained to the owner of the site, when I answer posts my answers are very personal and when I’m not feeling all that well it’s hard to put your all into helping another person. When my abdomen is aching- if I’m able to sit up, I’d rather be fooling around with code and graphics and updating my site it seems. That’s what always happens anyways.
Maybe I need a laptop computer? Do you think I could type on it while lying down? 🙂
Ok … enough rambling. I’ve got to get me to bed!
