Many of you have heard about or actually participate in blog carnivals. They are awesome. So I am posting a current carnival going on right now! It is on an excellent boomer blog The Baby Boomer Entrepreneur and this is the link to their current post. Enjoy!

Bored With Blogging or Just Bogged Down?
Have you gotten bored with blogging lately? Or are you just to busy to blog?
I asked myself this question as I traveled home from visiting my mom in the rehab center. I said ” Wow, I haven’t blogged in a very long time.” “Why?”
Well it certainly wasn’t because I was bored. No, it is because I am super bogged down with trying to do the Ebay and Etsy online commerce, work a full time job, figure out ways to add to my pension and take care of mom. I have all the drama I need to blog about.
Just my two recent trips to the Emergency room in a large urban poor community in New Jersey gave me more than 20 blog posts.By the time I talk about the evil of shutting down hospitals, overflowing ER rooms that strip the dignity of the cattle herd, amazing staff that works in what appears to be a war zone I have a lot to blog about. I should have recorded notes and blogged on a relevant blog before going to bed late each night.
Or, what about all the Ebay postings, people and lessons I am learning? Learning the software, learning the rules, finding things to sell, consignment challenges, learning how to sell things I never looked at twice before. All Attempts to add to my pension fun.That’s good for at least 20 posts on two new blog I created.
I realize that blogging can be systematic. I mean after all I created a blog management system that I am not using these days. So, it is time to put it into action if I am going to give food to my hungry blog children on a regular basis.
What about you?
Are you scheduling your blog posts?
Are you making notes of your daily thoughts, dramas and challenges?
Are you bursting with ideas to blog about?
Are you bored with the blogging adventure?
