Situation Normal: All Fouled Up

The “best” bloggers, the ones who can actually make a living out of “this thing of ours,” are the ones that plan ahead.  They have ten or twenty or more blog entries in the queue, and each one publishes like clockwork, once a day or once a week or whatever schedule they have.  If they are sick or need a vacation or anything like that, then those queued up entries cover the time they take off.

That does not work if you curate time sensitive content (such as astrology forecasts).  Without “established” (meaning monetized, “in real life”) relationships, curating content (via reblogs and similar) is a matter of picking and choosing from what is current.  Some content is dependably superb.  (And the best bloggers are a pleasure to work with.)  Others, not so much (on either count).  If you are curating content as it arises, you have no coverage for a “day off.”

What does that mean?

For “me” (meaning Grandtrines, Lost Dudeist Astrology, and the other blogs I use to curate content) it means that, if I need to be away, then the flow of content stops.  And sometimes a day or two is needed to restart.

We needed to be away.  But we will restart.  Keeping in mind that we are all mortal (at least as far as I know), some day will come where I will be “away” and not return.  But, for now, I plan to be back going “full steam ahead” in a day or two.
