As I near the end of five months of blogging everyday, I’m thinking I need to restructure my way of doing it. I enjoy blogging. I enjoy writing and I love having a record of what is going on in my life, but I blog at night. I’m generally exhausted and wanting to crawl into bed and I think “oh, right, I have to blog first.” So I write a quick scramble that I may or may not remember tomorrow.
So, I’m thinking:
- I need to write earlier…when I get off work or better yet before I go to work. Although the before work is probably not going to happen, because I literally get out of bed and stumble downstairs to star work – not much time for writing.
- I need to come up with a structure. You know, like a theme every day or every Thursday I post a thankful post
- I need to get back to reading and write about some of my reading.
- And at some point, I need to give myself a break. There is no one holding a gun to my head and insisting I write every day. Yes, it would be a cool accomplishment, but if I’m writing blah, blah because I’m burnt out, is it really that great?
