Good for you, Dan. I find it is lots of fun and I don't find it hard to keep up.
I use Picasa on Google to upload pictures which takes very little time and makes the picture stuff not a pain like uploading to Photobucket, copying, pasting and then finding that the image is too big. That being said, Picasa and Google are having a currently unfixed communication problem. If you plan to go that way, I know the work around - it's easy, but you do have to know what to do, so PM me and I'll tell you how.
I've loved two things about keeping the blog:
1. It keeps me on top of things because I feel like I have to report to a larger audience than just myself
2. I have a record when I am a procrastinating record keeper if that's required of me - this is fun
Also I put a statcounter on the blog (www.statcounter.com
) It's free and allows you to see where the people come from who look at the blog - I find that rewarding too to see that someone from China, India, New Zealand, Turkey visit my blog on a regular basis. It doesn't get personal - I have no idea WHO is visiting, just what country, city they represent.
I see your blog address below your post, so I'll add it as a link from my blog.
Looking forward to following it and linking to it.
