Blogging Tips from the Pioneer Woman

I have become a fan of The Pioneer Woman on Food Network.  (No, I really don’t cook that much but I love her program.)  Ree Drummond is pretty much a super woman: has a TV show, blogs, writes cookbooks plus two books about her dog Charlie, is married to a cowboy she calls Marlboro Man, has four cute kids that she homeschools, does photography, helps run a cattle ranch just to name a few!


SO, to move on to the subject of my blog today:  her post Ten Important Things I’ve Learned about Blogging.  Her ten points are good but number two is what I struggle with most:

2. Blog often.

Whether you write a sixteen-paragraph essay about the cosmic implications of a free market system, a one-paragraph description of what happens to your soul when you walk into your godforsaken laundry room, or a simple photo and caption, consider your blog a precious bloom that requires daily nurturing.

And watering.

If you water a plant once every two weeks, it will shrivel.

So true so I have resolved to work on blogging often!  If Ree, with her show, kids, cowboy husband, ranch etc. then I, with my full-time RVer traveling, my Raider fan husband, and my fun retirement position at Laguna Seca raceway should be able to do better.

I will nurture my precious bloom!


  1. I think this "tip" is important at so many levels. I think I'll go check out the other 9.

    As for your life, I'm slightly jealous. It sounds more and more attractive to me as we near retirement!

    Have a great day and rest of the week...

  2. Got a chuckle out of your post! That's good you are going to post more often.

    Thanks for all your visits and comments, too. Susan

  3. I can't imagine trying to do it all. I can barely keep up with the daily grind as it is and still have me time. I do try to blog often and to visit other bloggers -- that's important, too. Wishing you a wonderful day. Tammy
