When I began writing this blog, I posted two, sometimes three times a week. Once I realized people were reading, I decided to hold myself to a schedule and write one post every 3-4 days.
At some point last year, that changed to one post every 5 days. And lately it seems more like one post every week. Am I getting lazy? Or do I simply have less to say?
Sometimes I’ll go through a spell where there just isn’t much to write about. Or I’m not in the mood to share. But the challenge this week is that I have a few irons in the fire, but nothing feels quite ready to publish. I’ve drafted two posts, and there is a third that has been sitting in my “Notes” app for weeks.
There’s a flow in blogging, much as in life; a time and a place for each topic. All I can figure is that if I’m not motivated to put the finishing touches on a piece, it must not be the right time to publish it.
I wonder if any of my blogging peers feel the same way. Do you dance with your posts as I do? Or do you stay true to chronology and post things as they come to mind? Each style has its merits.
I like to think of my blog as a collection of short stories about my adventures with life; rather than a strict, chronological journal or diary.
I really appreciate all the encouragement I’ve received with regards to my writing. On the days I’m feeling really down, I’ll re-read some of your comments. It helps me remember that, while I can no longer contribute to society in the way I want, I can still have an impact on someone.
Thanks for this opportunity. A blog is nothing without someone to read it.
