Good Day Class!

What a wonderful surprise I have for you today. Our substitute teacher (guest writer) is none other than the famous singer, song writer, Ms. Jannie Funster.

You all know her as the bra flinging blogger from Jannie Funster.com who will write about anything she sees, and maybe even turn it into a song.

For her lesson, Jannie provided me with a photo of herself as she studies more about blogging. Isn’t she cute?

Please take your seats and have a listen as this won’t be an ordinary lesson.

Hello Ms. Funster.

Welcome to the Blogging Without A Blog classroom.

blogging_jannie_june_09

Hello Class,

It’s wonderful to be here.

Let’s do something a little different today.

Let’s shake it up.

Since I love music so much, I’ve posted the words to my lesson on the chalkboard, so you can sing along with me.

Barbara, can we have the music. please?

Ready?

Let’s go!

Today’s Lesson

Yes, I’m a blogging girl
takin’ round the world
Surfing every day
in the Internet way.

For me a schedule
is good – like vegetables.
So how about you?
Is it something you do?

To get your blogging done
are you following one
— a schedule, I mean
to keep it clean and lean?

Should you plan your posts,
so you can make the most
of your blogging time
with your peeps so fine?

Or do you let it fly
with your gals and guys
with not even a care
of when you’re posting there?

Today’s Assignment

Are you planning your posts
to make your time the most,
or do you let it slide,
or do you you let them ride?

Raise your hand and speak.
Come on now don’t be meek.
Wanna hear what you say
What is your blogging way?
What is your blogging way?

    {Raising hand}
    Ms. Funster, can I go to the bathroom? I have to blow my nose. And no, I didn’t plan for that to happen again today during music class.

    I’m a mix here, Jannie. My Sunday posts are always planned. This seems to work well. And I think regular visitors have come to know there will be something then, on Sunday morning – and have a pretty good idea of what it will look like.

    Beyond that, I try to post maybe once or twice a week. It really varies though. This week, with a lot of other stuff going on, there were no other posts. I’m at a point where I’m okay with that, for me. I’ll work with what feels right. Does that mean readers don’t know exactly what to expect? Sure, it may mean something like that. It comes down to, though – for me – that what I write has to be meaningful to me. And meaningful doesn’t always happen on a schedule. Sure, it would be nice if it did – but I’ll take what I can get, when I can get it. And that works for me…

    (I like your picture Jannie! You’re the smiley-est music teacher I’ve had!!)

    Hi Barbara and Jannie…
    Great photo!

    I’m learning new tricks all the time and to allow myself to keep learning new tricks I need NOT to have a strict blogging schedule…. more of a go with the flow.
    As soon as I feel under unreasonable pressure to perform I try to take a step back from it and reconsider what I’m doing.
    It’s a creative journey for pleasure and knowledge… for me at this point in time.
    Six Word Saturday is my only sure bet, though I generally post threeto four times a week.

    Thank you
    Best wishes

    I try to blog regularly, but sometimes it just doesn’t happen. I have a tendency to procrastinate, as well, so if I’m engrossed in doing something else, the blogging lags.

    What I am doing right now to make blogging more of a habit is to post every single day. I’m up to 20 days in a row right now. I keep track each day with the number of sequential days in the lower right of the post.

    My posts are not always textual. As my tagline says: “Sharing some of my photos, vintage images I’ve discovered, and — occasionally — commentary and thoughts from retired life.”

    (hand wildly waving – me, me!)

    Hello Ms. Funster!

    My posts are somewhat planned. They usually begin with a photo – I keep my camera with me all the time now for photographing things that strike my fancy. Then there is a related “good things” post.

    When something good is sited or happens I often jot them down on scraps of paper so I will remember, then transfer it to my blog. I usually post Monday-Friday in the 5am hour. And if I am organized enough, I have it mostly done the night before so I can quickly get it together in the morning.

    So I like to post three good things that happened the day before. Often something late in the day supercedes something else. The third thing on my post today was the last thing that happened before I settled in on the couch with dinner, glass of wine and kitty staring at me. 🙂

  6. LisaNewtonNo Gravatar says:

    Oh, how fun is this. 🙂

    My blogging plans extend the where I’ve been and where I’m going. I usually plan a location and have a few posts in mind that will go along with those. However, as it often happens, other ideas spring from the initial one.

    For example, my Metro Mondays idea came for my love of using the LA Metro system, and the lack of good information about the great places you can actually go to via Metro.

    I usually have a weeks worth of ideas planned via my travels, but I don’t usually write them up too many days in advance.

  7. Jannie, I love this!!! So creative! As for post planning, that doesn’t really work for me. As organized and plan-focused as I am in life, I just find that whenever I plan for a post, something else happens or I read a great quote that brings on a new idea. I tend to write (in a round about way) about what’s going on in my life and that is ever-changing. However, I do think if you’re not writing a life-related, personal blog, it’s probably a good idea to stick to a schedule. Excellent post!! Barbara, thanks for sharing this “substitute teacher” with us today. 🙂

    LOL Jannie is there anything you can’t turn into a song or poem? I haven’t been blogging much this year due to health reasons etc but I’m beginning to get back into it now.

    I varied my schedule. Most days I would write that days post early in the morning but sometimes I would write a whole bunch of posts ahead of time. It really is hard to get it all done. I don’t think I will go back to seven days a week again.

  16. AimeeNo Gravatar says:

    “For me a schedule
    is good – like vegetables” – You are one funny lady. I love your poems. As for the question, I’ve been thinking about planning my posts more. I think I’ve become sloppy with my offerings. Time to get “lean” 🙂

  17. Very cool post. But, I want the music and hear you sing 🙂

    I’ve been on and off with my posting frequency lately, mostly do to work load and family time balance. It is important though to remember how important blogging is not only for myself, but our company.

    I’m working on a new routine and have split up my day into time periods. So far so good.

    Creative post. I liked it 😉

  18. PaigeNo Gravatar says:

    Ms. Funster, I confess I’m one of those “planners”. I can write in advance and pre-post for a certain day. This enables me to slip in more on the minute happenings as they happen yet I still have a stand by post. (if I’m not being my usual happy go lucky persona)
    I usually post about once every 5 days at Paradise Valley …2 Hell’s Mountain (a plug for me). I guess that’s about once a week, but some weeks it is more often. I’m doing better at replying to my dear internets that leave me comments. Time being a big factor when one works among the other countless things we humans do.
    I try to visit my regular blogs at least once a week and I try to visit new ones. I like to click on the links my regulars have and some of their commenters as well. I love being able to be “social” at my convenience, which is one of the things the www is good for.
    Now at my 365 Views By Me, a photo blog where one takes a photo a day for a year, I post more often sometimes even every day. There is little text there, just the day of the shot and a brief caption / explanation.
    Thank you for asking and have a nice day, I really must be going as the short bus is fixin to leave without me.

  19. For once, I can say OH YEAH! ME! ME! (raising my hand in the classroom like Vinnie on Welcome Back, Kotter…. am I dating myself? lol… OK, so YES.. I am actually following a schedule, blogging daily because I am part of Connie Ragen Green’s 30 Day Power Blogging Challenge! It has been a great challenge for me to write daily.

    How fun to find the Funster! Sounds like you live up to your name!

    Flexible I can be so am on to something new for you and me…

    almost all my bags are packed and I am ready to go, looking forward to a Scottish Show….

    I don’t need to worry ’cause Blogger Dad is my sitter and with Jannie and JD guesting no one will miss me on Twitter…

    Once a week I am writing until 10 are prepared and by autopost on two blogs will be shared.

Blogging, Twitter, Facebook, and now texting (I have to keep up with my teen so I have scouts in the field reporting on a hourly basis, mmmmm mainly girls) then to throw in my small business ….I have no plan which is why everyone sees me typing with …. added to everything because I am one continuous stream of thoughts.

    I gave up on a schedule long ago. I speak the truth and nothing but the truth on my blog. It is what it is and I like it. I tweet my wrecks, I Facebook my travels, I blog my inner thoughts, I ichat with those close, I text to keep up. I’m sure I’m leaving something out.

    Hi Jannie,

    Oh, how fun you have made this lesson. Thank you so much for not only the great lesson, but for your fabulous answers to the comments. You have me humming along…..

    With regard to a blogging schedule, the only thing I schedule is when I post – MON-WED-FRI. and what the posts will include.

    Monday- A lesson from me
    Wednesday – Showcasing another blogger
    Friday – A guest post or another lesson from me.

    One thing I did was post my publishing schedule on my “about” page. I find it holds me accountable to my readers.

    As for the other parts of blogging, I fit it in when time permits and on some days, I have little to no time for blogging activities.

  28. My turn, my turn…Jannie!!!!

    I write what I write.
    Sometimes it’s not so bright
    And sometimes it flies high as a kite.

    I get what my muse gives me
    If I choose to not agree
    She will make my life a misery.

    This is my blogger’s tale
    Compared to Jannie, it is pale
    But poet I am not…so what the hale!

    I love the way you put a lesson in the form of a song – that is so neat!

    So in terms of my blogging habits. Up to today, they have been fly the wind and surprise, surprise, surprise. There was no routine b/c I have (had) a full time job – that is until today (YAY I am free) and hence had to work around that and just enjoying life minus the computer too.

    But after today, I don’t know if I will have a rigorously set routine although I kind of do like that – we’ll see! But on my one blog Evolving Scenes, readers can always depend on a photo and inspirational message each day of the typical work week (mon – fri)

    I usually stick to a publishing schedule but in the last few weeks, I’ve gotten so busy with other work that I just could not get round to any writing. I hope to get back to it though. Writing is an activity that I enjoy doing. With reading J.D.’s comments, I am thinking now that it may be helpful to set aside a “fixed” day weekly for all my writings.

    when I hear you say

    blogging “pressure” at bay.

    I too want to blog
    for fun and pleasure.
    — to reach that state is
    the ultimate treasure.

    with new approaches.

    Ms. Funster… I mean Grannie Jannie… I mean Lumberjack Lady… aww shucks, what am I supposed to call you anyway??

    You keep changing like a chameleon before my eyes. This never ceases to surprise……

    (Jannie, please picture Amy Poehler of SNL singing this with a Southern twang and a rappy rhythm . Unlike you, my pipes are broken. If I sang this out loud, the local wildlife would be injured from the sound waves emitted. No animals were hurt in the production of this blog comment).

    ~~~

    Your music is a true delight. The sight of your blog always a cool sight.

    As soon as I have a name for you, you switch personas again… I swear you really do!

    Whatever you’re called, you’re ALRIGHT. Your witty words show you’re so bright.

    You can always make me laugh… even with a simple typo gaffe.

    (Sometimes with the boundaries Jannie pushes, it’s no wonder the paparazzi are hiding in her bushes)!

    After all, her new CD has caught on. Now she has to keep her shades and wig on.

    (I’m actually surprised you were able to snag her to guest. I guess that Jannie never does get to rest).

    Well, class, Jannie wants to know your plan. Blogging randomly or something “canned”?

    Did you maybe write way ahead? Formulate while stepping out of bed?

    Either way, it’s all good! Will either way work? I think either could!

    So blog away to your heart’s content. Once you publish, you’ll feel spent.

    The good news is you’ll still feel good. Just the way all bloggers should.

    After all, it’s nice to get… our ideas out there, cool people “met”.

    In closing today please let me say, thank heaven Jannie Funster came my way!

    If she had not found my humble little blog, right now I’d be out splitting a log.

    Instead my friend Jannie splits wood for me. Eternally grateful I will be.

  44. Jeanne, Jeanne
    my blogging queen
    that’s the longest comment
    this post has seen.

    Girl, you’ve gone
    above and beyond
    in resonse to this
    wacky blogging song

    It’s a 2-way street
    and plenty sweet.
    That you came my way
    was more than neat!

    Yes, where would I be?
    Maybe up a tree,
    if you hadn’t responded
    to the likes of me,

    back when I was
    surfing ’round
    to lure more peeps
    to Funstertown.

    Oh — I cut your wood
    as much as I could
    and I’ll deliver it soon,
    like a good friend should.

    Well, gotta go now,
    take a break from rap
    yep, Grannie Jannie
    needs a nice long nap.

    🙂

    ******************

    But before I lay
    me down to sleep
    I’m sayin’ “Yo” to Linda
    with her words so sweet

    She writes her posts
    then gives ’em a fluff
    — I bet her blog’s
    full of awesome stuff

    So now I’m away
    to Linda Land
    then to take that
    little nap as planned.

    Long ago and far away
    I bloggety-blogged every day
    Started in June of 2006
    I had to have my blogging fix.

    Writers blog, don’t ya know
    Maybe so, but even though
    Comments were in short supply
    “I know no one online,” I sighed.

    Three years later, I’ve made friends
    I don’t just blog, I Tweet and send
    Updates to Facebook – Goodreads, too.
    Alas, I have too much to do!

    So these days, I prioritize
    Storytelling reigns most high.
    Still for my blog I make some time,
    And so concludes this bloggy rhyme.

    Jannie Funster, you funny lady you,

    ~~

    Jannie, Jannie
    my blogging queen
    the likes of which
    I’ve never seen

    So modest calling me blogging queen
    When her rhymes are the best we’ve ever seen
    Talking of going above and beyond
    Jannie’s readers have a very loyal bond

    So why do Jannie’s readers love her so?
    She makes them LAUGH. Don’t you know?? To her blog they want to go!
    Her creativity so fine. She knows just how to push the line.
    Words she knows just how to mine. Her genius? We can see the sign.

    So, it’s really nice to know. Genius Jannie’s also like you and me.
    She shares with us her daily story. Not all of them are filled with glory.
    The postal delivery story goes to show. Jannie’s just your average “Joe”.
    It could really happen to anyone. How Jannie tells it makes it fun.

    So visit Jannie on her blog. We loyal readers cannot hog.
    The more the merrier there I say. Jannie brightens up my day.
    Thank you too to Barbara here! For hosting a guest blogger I hold dear.
    Blogging Without A Blog is cool! I enjoyed Jannie teaching school.

    Hi-
    This article is great for a new comer such as myself. I have tried to schedule more often. Work usually gets in the way. So I guess my grade today is an F but I will improve.

    I find that my blogging efforts go in bursts. As such, one of the things I try to do is to use the publish window in the WordPress blog post editing area to schedule posts to “publish” a few days out from one another. I don’t always have time to write multiple posts at one sitting – but spreading out the post dates for when I do helps keep things natural as far as Google is concerned.

    Hey now, what do you know,
    I am starting to love this show,
    Jannie’s making us go ‘yo, yo’,
    and I need to get this stumbled, so there you go!

    haha.. obviously, not everyone got the talent for that. Apart making myself look silly, Jannie, I still need to give you credit for spicing things up a little in this blogging arena. I do schedule my posts, but at times I do change and replace the coming post with another. It depends with the current mood and instinct. ^^
