Any one who knows me understands that I am highly organized from the beginning of October through the end of April (this is ski season a real big deal in our house). This year I am trying to focus more on me time (knitting/blogging/beading...), my son who is very inquisitive and active, and my husband (schedule permitting), basically using what little time we have positively. So to take on anything extra can be a stressful event for me. Right now I am trying to figure out what in the world I was thinking with the blog a day for thirty days idea. Truth be told I have not been doing so well with the whole one blog a day for everyday in November. On the first it sounded so simple and I thought I can do this. Well I had to come to terms that by myself there was no way I was even going to come close to 30 blogs. So I took a step back, did some thinking, and came up with a plan of action on how I will get as close to the 30 blogs goal as I can.
The first realization I came to was that alone (me, myself and my brain) I would not finish this goal. So I looked around and realized I have access to my cell, my composition book, and a computer at almost all times in a day. The stress of doing it alone is now gone one if not all three of these objects is with me at all times. So I am not alone in this.
The second realization is just as simple use what is around; take that picture now instead of waiting, write down/sketch out the idea when it happens, and write the blog when the idea comes to mind then schedule the time it will post.
The third make an outline of topics I can blog about and stick to it. Think of something and write it down. Then blog about it.
So now the stress is gone and I look forward to blogging, sometimes more then once a day. I also enjoy reading your comments..
