Since Roger D. Mucci has sorta already answered for me I will repeat "It Depends" because it's true.  Typically, my "routine" is to post and then comment on those I follow.  I don't usually "search" out features.   I don't ask many questions in that section but do try to answer the ones that are quick.

I usually post a blog first, then go to my commenters, and comment on blogs, then to the Q & A section.  Sometimes this part has to be in the last evening if the phone rings at 8 am.

I've been doing questions first.  I have not been blogging as much.  The thing that gets me biz are my epic posts...just doing one per month.

Good morning Lise. I write my blogs at least a week ahead of time, blogs are scheduled, so my focus would be to comment and answer questions.

I never look for featured blogs, primarily the rainers that I follow, if they have a feature all the better.

Depends on the day.  When I have had time to post the next day's post ahead of time and scheduled it. I read blogs of those I, I started with questions, commented on one or two, wrote the post.  Then we left for an all day meeting, and I finished commenting when we got back..all depends.  A

I don't have a set pattern. Depends on what I have time for. Typically blogging would not be first on the agenda due to time constraints. Doing questions first is quicker and easier.

It depends on how much time I have, the time of day, and the season. Right before Halloween it seemed every other post was about the holiday, time change, change smoke detectors batteries, etc. so shifts like that impact what I do.

I first look at the notifications.  I check where people commented on something of mine, tagged me somewhere and I follow back those that follow me.  Then I head over to the Q&A section because it is quick.  Then if I have time left, I check out the blogs for the day.
