I think the reason we tend to stray and do bits here and there is just our brains sub-consciously spicing things up for us.. Either way the job is getting done... As long as you are not sitting there blowing on a pile that isn't going anywhere just a couple inches every couple minutes.... I always keep a rake handy and when they start piling up, I just kind of knock the piles down to make the blowing process easier.. Good topic!
If you are trying to blow a big pile that won't move get your mower, drop deck all the way down with blades OFF and start pushing piles like a plow to wherever you want to go. Then blow up all the leftovers and repeat if necessary.
