I'm In a Quandary

I never seem to be able to get myself into a position whereby I have enough items upon which to blog and then when I do have the items and the time I seem to just do them all at the same time instead of scheduling them.  Hence as I was having dinner tonight I was wondering to myself what I could find to blog upon which was quick and easy and interesting enough to have at least the first paragraph read.  I had plenty of ideas for blogs but nothing quick.  It has to be quick because I have a load of emails to reply to and arrangements to be made in New Zealand.  The time difference means that I have to make my calls early morning my time to get people in the evening or in my evening if I need to speak to them during the day.  

Anyway I needed some information for a decision on a Croquet Tournament when I get back to New Zealand.  So I went to my Hebridean in New Zealand blog.  As I was reading what I wanted to know I realised that I had 20 followers.  Now I knew that when I left New Zealand and stopped that blog I only had 12 followers and apart from a couple of my new Blogger pals they were people I already knew.  So why the increase I wondered.  Anyway it made me think.  I return to New Zealand soon and need to think about my new blog.

Questions:  Do I simply alter my old blog and use it for this year too and just alter the title a bit?  Do I amalgamate my existing two blogs (one for each of the last two visits) and continue?  Or do I start a new blog for this time in New Zealand? Decisions.  Decisions.  I'll just have to work out which is the easiest for my readers and for me.  The second option I suspect will win the day.

  1. What a dilemma!
    I know what you mean about trying to think of something quick to post. It always seems to take longer than I think it will.

  2. I saw your title and wondered "Has GB spelled quandary correctly?" The answer (of course) is 'yes'. But did you know that quandry is a very common mis-spelling of it. I have to confess that's the spelling for which I would have gone. Now I know better thanks to my big brother.

  5. I'd say the increase of Followers on your other blog is because we are preparing ourselves to meet you in NZ. Since we'll already be waiting when you arrive, I suggest you pick up where you left off...

  6. If you do start a new blog for 2009-2010 you could post a message on the old blog letting all your followers know... I missed the first few days last year because I was only subscribed to the 2008-2009 volume!

  7. Oh, you. I read this shortly after you wrote it and didn't have time to respond...I've been thinking about it since :)

    Simplify - keep it without an obligation and make it comfortable for you. I will follow ♥

    Keep in mind that there is a reason we have labels, you could simply label the postings to reflect on what area/time you are living in. Ex. NZ/09 or Scotland/09 or wherever you are and whatever date.

  8. Thanks for all the suggestions. Today may be the day when I do something about it. On the other hand.....

    Thanks for the reminder about labels Heather. That may well be the key to the whole thing.

    I shall let you all know.

  9. I assume (and I do know one never should) you are still grappling with this problem and that is why you have been absent from the blogasphere (without a note, I might add!!) Hope you are well!

  10. Hi Pauline. Actually I've had things on and no easily available thing to blog about but when you wake tomorrow there will be something. Promise. Thanks for asking.
