Zhadi's Den

Random essays on wine, writing, moving to San Francisco, surfing, cats (exotic and otherwise) and zombies...depending on my mood.

Who's got the time?!

My blogroll is sadly lacking.

Jess and I have been looking into possibilities for a blog tour to promote our upcoming kamikaze west coast tour, covering stores from San Mateo to Seattle. And there are just dozens of really cool blogs out there. And these are just the ones relating to mystery writing!

So my vow is to add at least one blog a day to my blogroll for the next two weeks. Reading each of them every day is another story, but I’m going to try and swing by each of them at least twice a week. It’s hard, though. I could spend all day noodling on the ‘net, reading other writers blogging about their experiences…and be perfectly content. However I have about half a dozen guest posts to write before May 1st, not to mention writing up the schedule to post on my website. And then there are my two pesky WIPs. Oh yeah…and my day job. And my nine cats (how I wish it was still 10…), my dog and my boyfriend.

My question to anyone who reads this post is: how the heck do you find the time to keep up with your blogroll, writing, family, work and life? ‘Cause I could really use some suggestions here!

    I hope said boyfriend isn't too unhappy being listed last after all the animals and the job, etc!

    I have a simple solution: get married. Once you have a spouse they willingly let you ignore them. In fact, they often encourage it. Plus you can pass off kitty box duty. Then you're just down to pets, feeding, and day job.

    I don't sleep. Which, I believe we established elsewhere. Plus, I haven't blogged much to speak of, or updated my blogroll, in months.

    Zhadi ... hope this reaches you!
    To get a book in one of my scenes you need only do an event with me! Or be at a conference with me -- I usually donate a scene to the charity auction (I missed doing that at Malice however).

    Okay, I'm embarrassed... I have three blogs and forgot to check this one for comments. I've been using the one at my author website for the most part. Can't seem to make the switch entirely over to that!

    Anyway, Dave B., complicated situation re: marriage. But interesting idea!

    Bill, if I don't sleep, I will lose all my friends. No one will want to be around me then.

    Camille, thanks for the heads-up! I'll be seeing you at the B&N Faire in Dublin! :-)
