    Seriously? How much time do you spend on it?

    I just started mine (shameless pimp!) and it took far longer than expected. How much time do you spend on yours regularly?

    Yeah, I know about that - consider me duly smacked down. It's late!

    I'm just wondering if anyone puts a lot of time into their blog? How much a day, etc?

    By far the most prolific Irish blogger I've read has to be Gavin of Gavin's Blog fame - that guy posts a LOT!

    I have not so much a blog but more a protected journal of my work experience as well as some random thoughts and musings.

    Actually, I guess it is a blog. Whadda you know...

    Can't say that I do - it takes as long as it takes to write it up and that's it. I'm blogging for myself, not an audience so I don't spend ages procastinating over what to post/not post.

    writing a quick little e-mail takes me forever so my waffly blog posts take some time too :)

    with only the weekend and the odd evening free, i only blgo about twice a week at the mo - i'm nearly at the bottom of the potb list! - the shame! :0

    and if you visit potb ucd_guy you will see that a *lot* of irish bloggers post often :)

    good luck with your own effort - i shudder when i think of my 5 years at belfield but i'll try and overcome that to pay the odd visit...

    I do it for myself aswell. There are a few people (family and friends) who I know read it so I occasionally post something about my travels / work / life that I think they may be interested in. I'm certently not doing it to achieve any kind of fame on the 'Blogosphere', it's almost exclusively got nothing to do with anything of popular interest.. just my own thoughts and musings.

    time wise, I make a post about once every couple of days.. less if I'm away from the computer or just don't feel like it. I've got no deadline to keep.

    I think the group blog at generates the most posts of all Irish blogs. Other group blogs like and are good places to fill your aimless hours. Personally, I like clicking the photos that come up in because they show more than 1000 words per image, IMHO.

    If you want to let automation take you to the frequently updated blogs, watching the listing on the RH column of because the blogs at the top have been updated most recently.

    Check out ...

    It's called "Howl @ The Moon"... I tend to update it most days, but some other folks also asked to 'join' up and use it as a platform for their rants and raves, so all in all there are three of us using it at the mo, but It's my blog, installed and setup on Wordpress 1.5 by yours truely :)

    Mainly stuff on domains/hosting/search engines. A pile of theorising and some ideas that are implemented. Read it and you'll never think of the Irish hosting business in the same way again.

    Eh, I have a few blogs.

    None of them are worth reading to be honest about it.
