The Really You!

Season 1 – Game 15

Question Fun Directory

What is or who is The Really You? No, really, as in really you? Who are you really? That’s basically what this game is about – who are you – who is – the really you!

Every week – just three questions – about you to tell us!

What is your ‘social conversation’ topic – as in if out with friends or in a gathering and you are asked to talk about something that means a lot to you or just a special interest – what would be the topic that people say ‘Oh don’t get X started on that?’

Well l am not often out, when l am however l can talk on a number of different subjects quite intently and with enthusiasm and heated constructive debate when required – however l am very passionate about gardening, environmental issues and organics – they would probably be the things that people would say ‘Oh don’t get him started on that again!’

Do you know, what you are going to publish daily in your blog – do you create the content on that day or is a lot of your content post scheduled and if so how far ahead are you/do you work to?


I have a scheduler that is tweaked weekly and evolves monthly to allow for smoother understanding and memory prompting for me as well – in fact it has changed yet again to the final phase that l was working on this month – so l am very pleased with that. BUT – in so far as creating content … l only have one post created the previous day for the next day daily which is the Universal Greeting post published every morning.

I will create an additional three posts for each day throughout the day itself – if l am running short of time, l usually slot in a very quick Random Quote which usually only takes any where between 15 – 45 minutes to produce – usually it’s longer if l am struggling to find  a suitable set of songs or images.

I personally find that having several pre – created posts awaiting publishing scattered over a seven day period in my scheduler irks me immensely and causes serious problems with my OCD – but ha ha why am l surprised, that’s just me!

So no, l only have one true proactive published post in my scheduler daily and the remaining are reactive creations on the day itself for that day.

In so far as knowing what l am going to be doing each day? Wll apart from the Universal Greetings post – nope, not a clue – but with my Excel scheduler this prompts me with dates.

How often do you press links in content posts and if you do, what type are you responding to – as in visual or text hyperlink or something other? If you do not press links – why is that?

Well most times l will press a link in a post, l respond to both visual and textual. I don’t often press advertisement links UNLESS it is specifically something l was looking for.  I do most of my online shopping with Amazon so l tend to if l see something advertised that l like but don’t want to press that advert, will research it first in Amazon and go from there.

I will always press internal blog post links as they are usually taking me internally to that person’s blog just on another page. But l rarely respond to any advertising on a person’s blog and l would say l press links of adverts perhaps 1 out of every 100.

So there we go folks!

Three basic The Really You questions for you …

… now it’s your turn!

If you create a post with your answer please do remember to add a ping back to this post – l am currently not getting all the links and so sometimes l never see your responses, so a manual link in the comments also helps out – Cheers Rory

  1. I schedule most of my posts 2-3 weeks in advance. It works well for me, so I’ve stuck with that since pretty early on in my blogging days.

    I sometimes click on links, but time is a major consideration there. I already spend a lot of time reading the latest posts of the blogs I follow, and linked content tends to be a lower priority.

    1. Hey Ashley, again excellent answers many thanks – the second answer is really interesting and sometime in the next week l am going to email you with a further question for your views regarding a project l am working on.

  2. I usually click on links to see where they go. I dont always read what I find there, but a lot of times I do.

    In my posts, I dont expect people to click links related to source material unless they’re curious about the subject. The links in my text are rare and usually old posts of mine, further information, or links to other bloggers.

    The linky links can provide a lovely scenic road on a ‘thought journey’ type post.
