The best way to keep a blog is to plan regular posts so that you, dear reader, are kept engaged with all the goings on. That's the theory anyway, and certainly its what all the blogging experts say.
And you'll probably agree that blogs that keep you entertained are also pretty frequent.
I'm amazed that people like Junkaholique, Seth Apter and The Girl with the Green Sofa manage to keep regular posts despite the fact that they clearly have incredibly busy lives.
I have a busy life! It's all a bit full on but oh dear, the poor blog is not getting the attention it needs.
This year keeps bowling me curve balls.
So, you might remember in May the stuffing was knocked out of me when I lost my old dog. It definitely affected my blogging creativity.
And now my Mum is ill. And that too is sapping the creative energy.
So please bear with me while I adjust.
