Ground Rules for New Bloggers

Good advice here. Especially about creating ground rules. Make some rules for yourself. It’s easier to make decisions when you can ask Past You what you did last time. If you have a rule not to blog about breaking news or gossip, then it’s easy to refer to it when you’re tempted.

Ground rules are important for who you let in. This is your blog. Your space. Your little corner of the world. You don’t have to give a voice to anyone in it you don’t choose to. You’re not a politicians having to win favor. You’re not a company worried about making payroll or earnings reports.

You’re a person. Or people.

You decide.

You make the rules and can change them when it suits you. If something isn’t working, change it.

Totally normal grocery store trip. We picked up most of what we were looking for. Idly thought “maybe we’ll get a pizza.” Nope.

Decided to check out the toilet paper aisle just for fun and… Nothing.

We also made a trip to Panera for bagels since our local bagelry is closed. Added some fancy bread because sometimes you need to see new foods to get you through the week.

Safeway reminds you to keep your distance.
Pizza? Pizzno.


Anyone have any experience running large webinars?
5,000 – 10,000 participants.
We do 1,000 – 3,000 routinely

I’m looking for best practices, pitfalls when running things that big. Anything I should be planning for or aware of when the numbers get that big?

RT’s appreciated. DMs open.

Do not try to update your router’s firmware at 11pm.

It could brick your router and after spending 2 hours trying to manually reinstall it using TFTP, you’ll still have no working router and be 2 hours more tired the next day.
