I love to blog, I might not be the best writer or have tons of readers but I do it and enjoy it!! It makes me happy so really that is all that matter right?? You would think so but sometimes I get a little "keeping up with the Joneses" attitude. This is the one attitude in my daily life I am learning to let go of and remind myself everything we do have is a blessing and is more than enough! So why am I have an issue with it in the blogging world? I think the main problem is I wonder how on earth does everyone post so much and where does the time come from? I only have one child and blogging seems to take a few hours a morning for me. Some days are great and I can get ahead with a couple of post. Other days I get very very far behind, which turn into weeks of no blogging. I try very hard to avoid this but it just seems to happen once a quarter or so.
I have a plan now to "keep up with the bloggers" that hopefully will work for me!
My mother bought me this great little planner last week to keep up with my schedule. I love having a smart phone but just prefer to have my schedule down in writing. It probably has something to do with having a required planner during school. It just works for me. So I am taking one element that works well and adding a new little piece to it. I am going to start writing down each week what I want to post that day.
This new method works so well for me for so many reasons:
- I no longer sit down at the computer wondering what to post about
- If I have an idea when I am out and about, I can just write it down on a day that is open! I no longer forget ideas!
- Having it on my planner, makes me feel like I have to do it!
So hopefully in the future the long weeks of no blogging will be a thing of the past for me!! You would think starting my third year of blogging I would be a little more on the ball but hey its never to late to start!!
