thanks for the suggestions yesterday – i will definitely be getting to them all in the upcoming weeks!
today i my favorites are going to be some topics with blogging, because i do love blogging!
as you can see from my 400th post, blogging has introduced me to many new running friends which is so great and this weekend i am also getting the chance to meet more! i have set up a little bay area blogger get together with some local ladies, hoping that they can find some new friends too through this. it should be fun, i am excited to meet everyone and i can’t wait to tell you guys all about it!
windows live writer
i have noticed a couple bloggers lately writing posts complaining about posting in blogger. if you own a PC and don’t have this program to blog on, download it now. seriously, it will change your blogging life. i didn’t know about it for a long time, and then it took me a while to actually use it, but seriously it is the best thing ever! you don’t have the stupid picture uploading problem that you get in blogger, you are able to format things so much easier, and it even has automatic links you can set up (thank you maritza for that one – see i just typed her name and it automatically hyperlinked her!). there are so many awesome things you can do, and then it just posts directly to your blog!
windows movie maker
this is the program i have used to make a couple of my movies and it’s so fun! it’s very easy to use too, especially once you get the hang of it. then you can make fun movies with pictures and songs to post! i hope to be doing this more often, because i like watching them on people’s blogs and seems like people like watching them on mine!
i have always kind of used this program, but thanks for my friend danica i am finally figuring out what some stuff really means. i have had some extra time on my hands at work and this will definitely keep you busy if you want it to.
i always think it’s funny to see what people search to get to my blog. there used to be some pretty funny ones, but now it’s a majority of running searches, which is good! still a few randoms though…
flex those legs, quitting the gym, running arons, run an aron, run some arons… i think someone needs to learn how to spell errand.
and of course, the trusty google reader. without it how could i keep track of ALL those awesome blogs out there? mine is JAM PACKED right now with blogs, but i have been trying to keep up with them so it doesn’t get out on control. i have everything sorted into folders and categories, so that helps too!
what are your favorite tools to make blogging easier/more efficient?
last night i got my medium long run in. i was having a hard time with this one because i was just tired. i knew once i got out there i would feel better, but ehhh that was kind of the case. i was just tired through this whole run and it felt like it lasted forever, but i got it done! the first 8 miles i could even see (daylight), which was a nice change. got the miles done and sometimes that’s all that matters
