Among the many things I am juggling at present besides work, school, & family, is THE BLOG. Promoting my blog is something that definitely occupys my mind. How do I promote my blog? I definitely want to get a wider audience. Who doesn’t? I’ve done several of the suggested techniques. Read other blogs and leave a comment or two. I joined Geneabloggers. I wrote several themed blogs to get traffic to come my way. I sent emails out at work. I hounded all my Facebook friends. Then a couple of weeks ago I contacted the local paper. On Monday, a reporter and a photographer came to my house for an interview. Yay! My daughter was excited earlier in the day, but hid while the reporter was in the house. Then of course, my five year old kept interrupting but that comes with the territory. The online version of the interview was published yesterday, late Thursday afternoon with the print copy being published today.
Mark finally got to ride. He just came past so I could see him. Paul Capes was riding his pony and they were together. Mark was riding the one Krulls are getting Betty Lou. I told Mark he worked awfully hard to get to ride one hour but he seemed to think it was worth the effort. He should be on a farm the way he loves to be around horses. He has been building model airplanes again. John was quite cross with him this morning because he got up too early to suit John and worked on one of his models.
(page 2) John came home from Band practice last night talking about a new instructor they are to buy that costs $3.00. He is also complaining about the horn he has, being so hard to blow so I don’t know what this will all lead to. – not too much I am sure.
Ed Barce got his commission or whatever you call it and will be in Indpls until Oct first. Then to Norfolk nine weeks. He said he would write you so he will probably tell you all about it.
Clara Molter told me that John K. didn’t make it at Peru, but was going to Chicago.
(page 3) Thelma was supposed to come today and iron, etc. but it is past 2:30 and she hasn’t come yet so don’t suppose she is coming today.
It has been rather on the cloudy order today. Looks like it might rain anytime but it was that way when we got up. Haven’t had any rain now for several days but there is a lot of humidity in the air and so much dew on the lawn every morning it is like a rain.
Clarice is having club this afternoon and if I can get ready will go. It is so much easier just to stay home, especially on a day like this. This is about all the news,
