Adjusting, not quitting - Part three: The Blog

I really have to get over the word blog.

I just don't like it. It sounds antiquated like "phone book" or "castor oil."

I also have to get over the "rules" of blogging, such as having labels which I have already stopped doing.

Also, blogging once a day seems to be the norm so I was writing two or three posts some days but scheduling them out over multiple days. As you can see, that rule is out the window. If I want to write ten posts in a day, I will post ten times on that day. If I have nothing to write about for two weeks, nothing will be posted for two weeks.

No labels. No schedules. No rules.

Finally, there is a Twitter account for this blog. Cool, huh?

I had an IFTTT robot running that Twitter and I never liked that idea. From now on, I am going to write my tweets there and I am not going to post every link to every post. When I feel like it, I'm going to go out there and tweet something like "Catch up on my posts to read about toothpaste, fire and frogs" even if I haven't written about any of those things.

I might even share some writing-related things that I have found on the interwebs that might be of interest to someone choosing to follow a blog on Twitter.

I still don't like the word blog.

Weblog sounds slightly better.

Call it what you want. I write here. I like it and I like it more without the rules.
