I mentioned in early March that Mike Howerton interrogated me on the new American Billiard Radio broadcast show.
Interrogated, inquisitioned, whatever.
If you don't have time to listen to the podcast (like I don't lol), I thought I'd share a little from that broadcast. Why? Well, because Mike asked me questions I normally don't get asked and consequently hadn't thought of to share. I know what you're thinking, damn she shares a lot already! But, Mike really probed me (ahem, verbally) and I realized the other night when I couldn't go back to sleep, that some of the answers I've never written about in my blog. Blasphemy, I know! So, I'm going to resolve that today for you. Why? Well, my name does start with "Me" and so it makes sense to talk about myself, right? (I know, lame excuse).
One of the things he found fascinating (my word, not his) was that I try to blog 10-15 times a month. Ask anyone, that's a lot! He then was intrigued: how do I come up with so many things to write about? And I shared this tidbit I hadn't shared with anyone before:
If you read my blog regularly, you know that I share articles from magazine (online or in print) about things that I relate to pool. However, it's not just online articles or magazines, it's anything I read. And that kinda gets in the way of me getting through a book.
For instance, I tried in January to read the recommended golf book, "A Good Walk Spoiled" and I couldn't concentrate! By the 4th page I had around 5 things I could blog about that I could relate to pool that I read in the book! Gosh, I get so distracted when I read books. SO many things cross my mind, "Oh, I could write about that" or "Oh, yea, that reminds of this I could write about." Even leadership books/articles from work - I will read a few pages and start using my highlighter like I'm on crack: I underline or highlight so many things! But, the highlighted sentences aren't for me to remember something that would be helpful at work, noooo, they are about things I want to write about in my blog!
The other thing I shared with Mike (and the fans who listen to the podcast) is that I do not have Internet at home. So, that means all the blog posts, all the interviews, and all the broadcasts are done from my work office after work hours. Eeek, that may imply I have no social life, lol, but not having Internet at home is the reality I live in. The homeowners have recently begun the process of a petition to get Internet in our area, but it's been this way for a very long time and I am used to it. But, it's a little fact of the Melinda Bailey life lol.
I'll share more things like this in the future. Strap your boots on!
