Back in the Saddle

Many thanks to Kim for the nudge. I didn't intend to disappear so long, but between work, writing, and trying to get my website going, I've been neglectful. I didn't mean to do it.

To get back in the swing of things, I thought I'd accept Kim's meme tag…

1)Why and how did you start your blog?
I'd like to eventually explore some freelance writing avenues, and I wanted a place to record my scribblings as I learn. You know, for the business cards. As is my custom, I just jumped in and started doing, without giving a lot of thought to it.
2)If you have a special 'nom de blog', how did you choose it?
I don't when I fell in love with the 'singlespace' name, but I knew that I wanted a blog by that name. Unfortunately, when I chose blogger, singlespace was already chosen, so I had to come up with something else. Since I knew I'd be posting on others' blogs, I liked how 'Cammysaid' looked on those posts.
3) How did you come up with the name for your blog? Singlespace is one of those words that encompasses several facets of my life, and I like that about it. 4) What things do you tend to blog about the most, and why? So far, it seems to be everyday events mostly and my reaction to them. I love finding connections with people, and it's through the ordinary that I think we find our most common thoughts.
5) Are there subjects you'd like to blog about, but don't, and if so, what is stopping you? Time! Time! Time! Working full time, running a yahoo! Special interest group, writing, and intermittently cleaning my house all chew up a large part of my time. There are so many things I'd like to blog about, but very little time for it. Kudos to those who blog daily (or more frequently).
6) How do you organize your blogroll/links? I have no idea. LOL I think they're alphabetical.
7) How do you feel about the design of your blog? Are there any changes you'd like to make to it? Last year (or was it the year before?), I bought the domain name, 'singlespace.net'. My goal is to have my blog linked there, but no luck so far. I'm a fan of simple design, without a lot of flashing gizmos. I love photos people post to their blogs, and I'd like to do more of that. ::gazes wistfully at digital camera on desktop::
8) How often do you post new entries on your blog? Would you like to post more (or less) often? Ouch. I'd love to post more often, and I'm going to commit to doing that. My worklife should be easing up over the next week or so, and that should give me a bit more time and energy. Also, I'm going to start some home remodeling, and I know that will give me LOTS to blog about!
9) How often do you read and/or comment on other blogs? How do you find new blogs to read? I haven't been reading much lately, but when I'm able, I read every day. I love to explore the favorite blogs of my favorite bloggers to find new blogs to read.
10) Have you done anything special to get others to read and/or comment on your blog? Not much. I registered with Technorati, and I think that's it.

And now I tag anyone else who wants to share....
