Summer is Busy But There is No Excuse for My Behavior.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc. 539MN

Lately, I noticed a disturbing trend.  I have logged on and made one or two or three comments, logged off, thinking I would come back and finish all ten. 

I am caught up on getting back on all the comments I received...even when I had two features in a week.  But, there are always a couple that I hold onto, hoping they will post something sometime.

Now, it has gotten crazy busy, and at the end of the day, I have no time to sit on the computer and make comments or even read my favorite bloggers to bookmark posts to check later. 

I guess that is fine.  But, I fear missing that one great post that I need to make my business go even more nuclear.

Anyone have any great ideas for how to keep those great posts.  Maybe I will just have to hold on to all those Daily Drops and hope for the best.

Don... i think many of us are busy lately.. a good thing... and really our main goal?? Whatever you are able to do is what gets done after setting priorities... Unless you blog fulltime  you will never get out everything you want.. so just do what you can and what works for the moment.. I don't know that there are any secrets that anyone else will put out here.. but I will check back to see!!

I staring at my keyboard after a twelve hour day. I try to get on in the morning, then again after the last call.

I wouldn't worry about returning all the comments but make it a point to check the day's features so you don't miss anything big.

Don -- it's all about the business but remember the source of the business --- if the source is Active Rain -- put it on your schedule.    Glad to hear things are humming along for you.  Have a great weekend.

Well, now, here is another night I won't get all my comments in.  Another PA to write and that it far more important.

I know how you feel. Thank goodness for the blog drafts I had saved. It was all I could do to make comments lately and most of those were made in the early morning or late at night.

I've tried saving the daily drops, but they just get buried with all my other emails, and I've found this doesn't work for me.

You're not alone Don...it's an ongoing problem. I find that I feel so guilty when I know I owe comments and such. And, I too worry I'm missing great blogs when I don't have time to check in regularly.

Yes, it has even happened to me this week.  I don't think I missed my  (at least) ten comments per day for over a year, but, I couldn't make myself stay at the computer for any more time at least once or more this week.  But, I only have so much capacity.  And, like you and Debb, the thought that I am missing a great post makes me feel even guiltier.

Don, I agree that it's sometimes hard to keep up with everything but I also was missing some great posts and have made time everyday to return/make comments to let other Active Rainers know that I was there.  A "more mobile" netbook has helped me with this!
