Finding a balance remains a constant challenge. What exactly is the right amount of “doing” and “talking about doing?”
Social networking offers an extraordinary outlet. Doing it correctly requires a full-time assistant, unless you are lucky enough to have awesome bandwidth and a job involving a computer. Otherwise, it’s straight up work.
Many of us feel like we don’t get enough time to leave all the comments we would like, or tweet all the whingeing and factoids possible (let’s not talk about Facebook).
The more I do this, the more I appreciate those that seem to have found a balance. Even at face value, it’s quite a task to “work” then “post about work.” All the other distractions and background issues not discussed make it even more impressive.
If you are good at this, how do you do it?!

Oh yeah, our friend Todd says Hello and he is sorry he’s not been on LJ’s much lately. Mr Clippinger has been swamped with his latest work load. Drop him a line sometime and offer encouragement, esp to his wife Rita, the latest workshop widow in Montana. (She still brings him mochas [I say it’s the haircut])

Anyhow, be safe this summer, in the shop and/or otherwise.

Maybe, I understand…....

I have not found the balance.

It is much too easy to dance on this keyboard, than to do things in the shop….........

OK, I make excuses, I think they are valid, I work and I am old…...............

...........when I am tired like now… is so easy to type a few words…......

The shop takes real attention and endeavour. bed…....

Hopefully this weekend…........some progress…........fodder for the blog….............(-:

Yes it can be hard. I’m retired and can’t seem to get it done. Doing yard work, working in the shop, remolding 2 houses that are 40 miles apart, still working on computers since i had my bussines. ( shut it down 10 years ago,and still getting getting customers calling)
