Too Busy to Blog?

What happens when so many phenomenal things are happening that you just don’t have the time to write about them? Sure, I tweet about everything that is going on, but Twitter is simple. I can almost do that with my eyes closed. Writing a blog post about all the cool stuff does take more of a thought process than 140 characters and certainly more time. To give you an idea about what I’m talking about, here are some of my tweets from the last few days:

10/3/08 @epodcaster: Good Morning! Getting ready for some First Friday Co-Working fun at Firecat Studio. Topic: Guerilla Marketing for the Entrepreneur

10/4/08 @epodcaster: AIR San Antonio is off to a great start. The teams are working hard with their non-profit partners. Great job Sharon, Susan & Todd

10/4/08 @epodcaster: basking in the SMC Austin & San Antonio Mixer afterglow. Great time and phenomenal conversation.

10/7/08 @epodcaster: Good Morning! Getting myself ready for today’s Social Media Breakfast in Austin. Looking forward to chatting it up…after coffee of course”

And finally, I submit the tweet that got me thinking about writing this blog post:

10/7/08 darylcognito: @epodcaster it would be interesting if you podcasted or blogged about those events.

There is no doubt that each one of those tweets could easily be it’s own blog post. Tweeting about these events is certainly easy and can be done on the fly. Whereas a blog post takes a more concentrated effort. Given that I’m becoming more of a mobile tweeter, blogging does take a back seat.

However, Daryl makes a good point. It would be interesting to podcast or blog these events. While a tweet does give a glimpse of what is going on, it doesn’t really get into the meat of the event. I’ll compare it to eating an hors d’oeuvre at a fancy restaurant when what you really wanted was a big fat juicy burger. Sure it’s still food, but nowhere near as satisfying.

The solution? It’s a good thing to expand beyond the 140 character limit of Twitter. As a matter of fact it’s a great thing. The challenge will be for me to recognize those blog worthy tweets. Feel free to chime in, like my Canadian friend Daryl did, to let me know if I’ve missed the obvious post.

  • Sitting down with @jackieadame enjoying an iced Kona Blend with cream. Nice way to end the day after a great Tweetup. #
  • @kr8tr: Wow! Strange that we were talking about that exact thing at the Tweetup. Glad you escaped unscathed. #
  • I’ve been up since 3:30am. I stayed in bed hoping to fall back asleep. Fail. So, I figured I’d listen to some podcasts and start work early. #
  • @cspenn: Well at least there’s no crying in WOW. #
  • Spent last night and this morning catching up on some podcasts. I’ve missed you guys. 🙂 #
  • Working since 3:30am. Think it’s time for a break. House and possible siesta before beginning the evening session. Tweet ya later. #
  • @marc1919: These are the moments where you wish Scotty could beam you up, eh? #
  • I think I’ll go for a walk once dinner settles a bit. I know Ladybird will be thrilled to get out of the house. #

What I’m talking about 2008-10-01

  • I think my dog had Roid Rage. 2 weekds ago Vet gave her steroids to combat allergies. She became sleepy, grouchy and kinda mean. #
  • A couple of days ago she woke up peppy, happy and like her old self. Don’t think we’ll have vet give her steroids again. I like my pup back. #
  • @darylcognito: I guess pups can react differently to steroids. Mine if better off without. Glad Kuma has been on the upside of the steroids. #
  • @AllAxisAjay: In that case it looks like Kuma is in luck and Ladybird…not so much. #
  • @darylcognito: The boys had let the backyard get a overgrown. Turns out Ladybird was allergic to the stuff in the backyard. Weird, huh? #
  • It’s October 1st, do you know what happens starting November 1st? Yep, November 1st kicks of NaPodPoMo. Will you join the crazy fun? #
  • Just reopened the group for brave folks who can podcast every day for the entire month of November. #
  • @bpende: It was definitely a challenge last year. I posted mostly after 11pm. I think we’ve got it in us for another year of NaPodPoMo fun. #
  • @tellingontrixie: Congrats on reaching your funding goal. It’s great to have folks show their appreciation by helping you continue. #
  • great info coming out of SocialMedia Chapter Leadership call. #
  • In the interest of being green, who wants to carpool to tonight’s Tweetup? I’m in North Central SA. Bueller? Bueller? #
  • @Medros: Ack! NaPodPoMo alumni will be missed. I’m going to try my hand at a live show. Means no hosting or post edit issues. #
  • @brendabbailey: Tweetup tonight from 5-7pm at Waxy O’Connors on the Riverwalk. Across the river from La Masion. #
  • @lrh: Ah, REAL Mexican Food! Not the typical Tex-Mex you find on every corner, I take it? Enjoy! #
  • @Nicole03: Hey Nicole, no worries. A Tweetup is a Twitter Meetup. Local Twitter folks get together for the Face-to-Face side of Twitter. #
  • @Armano: When all else fails, Theraflu is your friend. #
  • 2009 San Antonio events: GreenCamp April 18th, Podcamp May 16th, Startup Weekend May 29-31, Barcamp Sept. 5. Still interested in a MobiCamp #
  • I trying to decide between BlogTalkRadio and Utterz for NaPodPoMo #
  • @shawno: Yikes! Okay, I’m open to the discussion of why using something like Utterz or BTR is not podcasting. Let me hear it. #
  • @Armano: I’ve got your back. Homemade Chicken Soup is what’s for lunch in the Navarrete household. #
  • @shawno: I don’t disagree that originally podcasts were recorded, edited and the uploaded. However, I don’t want to discount newer tools. #
  • @shawno: Plus with time at a premium these days, I know that allowing non-traditional and sometimes creative methods works well. #
  • @shawno: I’ve been wanting to tackle the “live” show for a couple of years now. I guess this looks like the perfect opportunity to do both. #
  • @shawno: Nah! I do understand. I’ve been a traditional podcaster for a long time. Time is getting harder to come by. So I’ve got to change. #
  • @shaine: Yep, I’ll be going live for NaPodPoMo starting November 1st. So now my question is scheduled BTR or impromptu Utterz? #
  • What?! I just tried to call Senator John Cornyn only to find a recorded message that says their lines are busy. “Hang up and call later”. #
  • @mastermaq:I find two camps of Canadians. Those who are as passionate about what’s happening in the US as we are & those who could care less #
  • @SheilaS: Mild-melding opportunities with @conniereece are phenomenal. #
  • I’m at the Riverwalk a bit early to avoid the crazy5pm traffic. Anyone else here yet for the Tweetup at Waxy O’Connors? #
  • Sitting on the Riverwalk enjoying the great weather, a cold beverage and Tweetup fun. #
  • Stella! Stella! #

  • @SheilaS: Heehee! I can totally relate. I gave up cooking for a while due to meal criticism. Now when I cook they compliment. #
  • @chanajoy: Congrats on the new house! So exciting to have new beginnings. 🙂 #
  • @ricksanchezcnn video. Retweet: from @ariedana If you watch @ricksanchezcnn, watch this. LMAO. #
  • Okay folk, I’m throwing in the towel for the night. Have projects I want to complete, but eyes keep closing & head keeps bobbing. G’Nite. #
  • @mosqueda: So glad you arrived in rested condition. 😀 Now it’s time for me to get some of that good old fashioned kind of rest. #
  • Co-Working La Taza, anyone? @pandaran and I will joining @doingmedia for a day of coffee, work and fun. #
  • @parnellk63: My stepdad works at only 1 of 2 fuel catalyst companies in the nation and it was closed for about a week following IKE. #
  • @parnellk63: they did not sustain much damage however the company that processes their waste water did. So no work. #
  • @fave: I’ve got plenty of laptop graffiti on my PowerBook. I like it. #
  • @Merlene: I’m familiar with it. I have many tabs open because I hope it will prompt me to take action on several items. #
  • I have been trying to get out the door all morning. Still working from home. Co-Working is calling me. I’m coming! #
  • @lrh: Larry, swing by LaTaza for some Co-Working fun while you’re in town. 🙂 #
  • Oooo! Tweetup at Waxy O’Connor’s on the Riverwalk tomorrow at 5pm. We held our post Podcamp San Antonio mixer there in 2007. Good times. 😀 #
  • Hat tip to @kamichat for the heads up on tomorrows Tweetup. #
  • @Pistachio:The whole what’s a Camp what’s not a Camp debate rages on. Camps are free If you charge for it. It’s not a Camp it’s a Conference #
  • @pistachio: On the other hand I do believe that you can have an UnConference model in a pay for Conference/Seminar/Workshop… #
  • @pistachio: Now the question is: What does a first timer think of when they hear all the buzz about Camps and goes to a paid Camp? Same old #
  • @pistachio: …thing with a different name. They are missing out on the true essence of what a Camp really is. The open sharing model #
  • @thecountrygal: I think it’s more than multi-tasking now. I think we’ve entered into the multi-brain. #
  • @fave: My day IS slipping away. Please elaborate on the “dayum thing”. #
  • @shaine: How’s the sales gig going? #
  • Guess getting out the door just wasn’t in cards for me today. Turns out we held an impromptu Jelly at my house. Now enjoying Iced Coffee #
  • @lrh: That’s okay. I never did get out the door. All my good intentions stymied by the getting things done and stuff. Next time. #
  • @lalorek:Google invite? You have all the fun! Well, except for the time you did the “green burial” story. That didn’t look like much fun ;-P #
  • So glad San Antonio is a small big city. Met @doingmedia & it took all of 3 minutes to get there. In Houston that would have been 30 minutes #

  • @adelemcalear: My sister @JackieAdame and I are with you. We don’t like clothes shopping at all. Now tech shopping, we love. #
  • @mosqueda:Dan, you enjoy that steak. You deserve it &so much more. We’re looking forward to your return from Iraq for a welcome home Tweetup #
  • Good morning world. It’s another beautiful day here in Corpus Christi. I’ll be sad to go, but glad for having spent the time 🙂 #
  • Catching up on some MyLabeleNet business now that I’m back in San Antonio. #
  • @shaine: How many do you think you could do in a day? The only busy days would be the 5 days before the end of the month and 5 days after. #
  • sitting under a. Shade tree with @pandaran at SAC. Being interviewed by SAC publication. #
  • @taxtweet: You are not alone. I also use DVR to ff through commercials so if I rewind to watch one it’s got to be entertaining. #
  • @ShannonRenee: Tweets are like that. Only catching one side can be funny and sometimes strange. #
  • @shaine: So is this a new biz idea? Would you sub-contract in order to maximize profit potential? #
  • @taxtweet: The cool thing about DVR is that you can just ff through bad show, too. But that still leaves us with nothing to watch ;-P #
  • Another awesome post by @cspenn about the bailout and state of the economy #
