I Can Do Better Than This http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress Perhaps someday this blog will be about something. Sun, 07 Jun 2009 16:35:08 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.7.1 en hourly 1 Harder than I thought http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress/2009/06/07/harder-than-i-thought/ http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress/2009/06/07/harder-than-i-thought/#comments Sun, 07 Jun 2009 16:35:08 +0000 Donald Jackson http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress/?p=4 This blogging stuff is harder than I thought.  It was a busy week at work, and I had a lot on my mind, but seven days without finding time for a single post?  That seems excessive.

I didn’t expect to become a prolific blogger overnight (and it doesn’t help that my personality is not one that makes it easy to blog without an audience) , but I would have hoped to post more than once a week.  Surely I can find time to post something as inane as “I have no time to post!”

I even have a topic I want to post about. Maybe I’ll go see Star Trek again next weekend and then post about it.

Is it wrong to create a blog in hopes of winning a Wii? http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress/2009/05/31/is-it-wrong-to-create-a-blog-in-hopes-of-winning-a-wii/ http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress/2009/05/31/is-it-wrong-to-create-a-blog-in-hopes-of-winning-a-wii/#comments Sun, 31 May 2009 21:40:38 +0000 Donald Jackson http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress/?p=3 My immediate and unqualified answer to this question is “YES”.

Fortunately, I have wanted to create a blog here anyway, and the chance to win a Wii was only a good motivator to finally do this.

Because of this mitigating factor, I have to reduce that “YES” to a much softer “ALMOST CERTAINLY”.

On the off chance that Bob Lotich is more generous than I am, I will link now to his contest.  Bob is giving away a Wii and an iPod in celebration of the second birthday of his insightful blog, ChristianPF.com.

Congratulations on two years, Bob. If at all possible, I will try to get some traffic here and maybe send a few readers your way.

Starting Out http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress/2009/05/31/hello-world/ http://donald.jacksonfamily.ca/wordpress/2009/05/31/hello-world/#comments Sun, 31 May 2009 21:06:35 +0000 Donald Jackson This blog may be doomed to failure from before it begins.  This is partly because if I decide to really run a blog, I will likely put it somewhere else.

But I have to start somewhere, right? Might as well be here.
