Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

How Long Do You Spend Composing a Blog Post?

My non-blogging friends are always asking questions about my blogging.  One common question and the subject of many a conversation is "how long do you spend composing a blog post?"  The answer to that varies greatly for me.  If I am on a roll with a lot of good blog fodder it takes be fifteen minutes or less to write a blog post.  That timing usually applies if I have a number of edited images ready to blog about or something has happened that is fresh in my mind that I want to blog about it immediately.  On the other hand I have had days where it really has taken me much of the day to finish a blog post because of distractions or blogger's block.  Then there are the posts I've started and didn't complete.  Those happen sometimes especially when the thought was a good one at the time but the post itself wasn't.  So how long do you spend composing a blog post?

I normally spend 15 minutes composing a photo post including editing the image. Maybe up to 30 minutes if I have something interesting to say...

However I can spend hours writing a programming post if you include research, checking references, emailing people, etc. I probably have a few post which have taken 10 hours plus!
