My Back to Basics Approach for Blogging on Active Rain
A friend of mine commented that I have been busy blogging of late. I explained to him that he has only seen a snapshot of what I am doing. Besides Active Rain, I am currently working on two Designations. He just didn't understand how I find time to do it all. I have decided that share part of my process, which I will call
My Back to Basics Approach for Blogging on Active Rain: It consists of three steps
1. Know and utilize the maximum Active Rain Blogging points system
2. Establish a time of the Day when you are going to blog

The grand total of 4950 points per week
Establish a time of the Day when you are going to blog
I have established 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm as the ideal time for me to blog. This is because in the past I would be watching television. Needless, I have not watched much TV these days. My time is spent reading the blogs of others and writing my own.
Use the proper software to make your processes more efficient.
I use the following: Paint, Notepad, ScribeFire, Instapaper.com; SimpleNote Apps, Feedly, and Google Reader. These softwares allow me to find articles, save them write my blog and then post to Active Rain.
Keeping track of your progress
I keep a log of how many posts I have made each day. The goal is to do at least one per day. I have a notepad that I use to keep trackof this.
This iis as simple as I could get it, hence, My Back to Basics Approach for Blogging on Active Rain.
