Debating...

So, I've been debating about whether or not to put a blog post up today.  I wrote one yesterday that I quite like, and am sitting on it, wondering if now is the right time, or if I should wait until Monday. Or Tuesday.   Not "is it the right time" because of appropriateness, but "is it the right time" of day/week?   I know I write for me, but sometimes I like to know if there are times when more people will be reading.   Selfishly, I like the accolades. LOL   Unselfishly, I suppose I could just say, I like to write for other people.   Eh, "read" into it what you like.   

I usually post on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, thinking that weekends are not big reader days, but with summer, who the heck knows?  It's a bit of a crap shoot (just wait until my next post to appreciate the irony of that statement...).  

So, in an informal poll of sorts, when do you read blogs?  Morning?  Lunchtime?  At night?  Do you read on your smartphone?  From your home computer?  From work?  What days of the week do you usually read?  Weekends?  Weekdays?    

Personally, I won't answer those questions for fear of incriminating myself, but I'd love to hear from you!

(And just for giggles and to face my own embarrassment head-on, I think I should inform you that this post accidentally went up on another blog that I'm a moderator for this morning, thinking that it was my own blog I was posting on.  I caught the error immediately and deleted it, but the first paragraph still showed up on Facebook, on Blogger, probably on Twitter, and who knows where else.  eeek...)

too funny!
I read all week days as little breaks come in during the day or at lunch while at work. Hardly every even look at a computer over the weekend.

I usually read whenever I see on fb that a blog I normally read has posted. Some week days are busier than others, so it's hit and miss. If a few days go by without keeping up, I'll clock on the blog header to see if I've missed anything.

I'm an obsessive blog reader. I read pretty much every day! But I hear ya- things I post on Friday or the weekends seem to get pretty much ignored (as well as things I post certain times of the day on M-Thur) It's a strange science...

I read at nap time and after bedtime. Generally every day....my husband works some weekends so it is just me and the kiddos some weekends.

Weekdays at nap time or early morning.

I usually read in the mornings with my coffee...Or when Russell naps...I am a big reader on the weekends and always disappointed that no one posts so I have nothing to read!!

Cracking up at your posting faux pas!
I read during the girls nap times during the week if I have a minute.

Becky said...

I read whenever I can! It is easy from my IPAD!

when Im home (summer, school breaks, weekends) I read when the kids are still sleeping in the morning. sometimes I catch up in carline or at appointments on my phone. It really depends. I dont watch tv so blogs are my guilty pleasure for myself haha

I really only follow yours consistently :) I read it from my home computer (don't own a smart phone) when ever I happen to see the link from your Facebook page. I either read it right that very second or if I have to be out the door soon, I'll mentally tag it to read when I get home.

All other blogs I read if the topic of the post interests me.

I read blogs more than I should! I usually check in the morning when I'm the only one up, and then again at naptime and bedtime. I check when I see an update on facebook, and I usually check my blogger reading list at the end of the day. I'm bad about commenting, though. I try, but I'm more of a lurker.

I post at the most random times. It's probably not a good idea. One of my blogger friends writes her posts and then sets them up to post in the morning on weekdays only. She swears by it. Her blog is successful, so if I had any sort of organization at all, I'd do that. I read in the middle of the night. Like now.

I usually read in the afternoon or later at night.Not so much on the weekends.

Laura said...

In the evenings when the kids are asleep:)

Hello! I read in the morning...and sometimes on the weekend...when the kiddos nap! I am when I have a minute and internet reader! smiles

I read blogs whenever the kids are asleep and I have a free moment; in fact, whenever I get a chance to get on the internet, I usually check out the blogs first. Probably evenings/nights mostly. Nearly every day.

Weekday mornings! I rarely read blogs on the weekend. :)
