The Life of a Work-a-Holic

steve jobs

I’m a workaholic. I get addicted to most everything I do – and I love it – except now I’m really busy because I don’t let things go – most of the time. And where are all the bloggers who have followed me over 4+ years. I guess they got bored with their blogs  Most people don’t follow through with things like this because their is no one to encourage them and they gradually stop. It was fun at first  watching to see how many people followed them, but they moved on.

I did some rummaging around pulling up, or trying to pull up, the blogs of past bloggers who have followed me. They aren’t there! The number of blogs still active, at least from early blogs is  . . . very  . . . very . . . small.

I now some people have lots of instant likes on their blogs, when I go to the WordPress reader that shows blogs that just posted, and I’d wager that their blog is the main thing they do on line and most of their views come from bloggers. Nothing wrong with that at all. But when I pull up an old post and go to the blogs of people who liked it – those blogs are rarely active anymore.

But this blog is but one site of many sites I have to tap into and maintain as often as I can. And I will continue blogging. It is a way to tap into my other sites, like my music website sonniquick.net 

From there you can see all of my Youtube music videos, or find my channel with a simple search of Sonni Quick Piano Improv. It’s also sometimes easier just to Google my name and see what comes up.

Most of the people who read what I write come from Google searches and I try to connect them with everything I do.  Quite oftenII have 2-3 devices open at one time so I can listen to music of other musicians I follow, write what every I’m writing at the moment and check in with business stuff.

I try to build my blogging friends, but it’s hard to go back and consistently follow their blogs, no matter how much I like their blog, but I try. And when do I do my own reading? When do I write music? I keep a very tight accept and keep going until I can no longer stay awake. Then I sleep for five hours and begin again.

Well, I better get back to work. Don’t forget to read some of my book chapters and subscribe to ITFO NEWS at my other blog – My Name Is Jamie – see ya there!

  1. I’ve also found that a lot of blogs I followed at first (and who followed me ) don’t seem to exist anymore . My son tells me that blogs are a dying format – depressing in the extreme . I found that blogging conversations were so much more profound and polite than the ghastly exchanges on Fb – I’m thinking particularly of politics here . Perhaps it was just that blogs appealed so much more to us elderly folk who were brought up with books , letters , newspapers , journals ? And we are dying out ? As to busyness : modern technology is supposed to save us time but I used to find time when in my 20s to write long letters to family members and school friends as well as live and breathe feminist politics , carry on a disastrous emotional life AND get thru’ University . I envy your ability to manage on 5 hours of sleep !
