A scheduling failure and a change of routine.
I schedule posts in advance, I write in bulk and schedule for the week – it helps to make writing something down a priority.
Then I didn’t set a theme for my blogging and freestyled a week. Two days working from home and I didn’t check in on my blog.
Nothing went up.
Two days shy of my month of blogging.
I am rather disappointed with this, I’d set a win in my head and I missed it.
Don’t waste your time striving for perfection, instead, strive for excellence – doing your best.
I could choose to focus on that I missed out on my month of blogging, or I could focus on the fact that in 30 days I added 300% more content than the site had had in its history. I did my best, and the bar for what is my best had been raised to a new high.
The focus could also be on what went wrong (routine, post planning) or I could celebrate the fact that I now have a pattern of writing that works well for me.
Writing has become a pleasure and not a chore.
So much good has come from this month.
To explain the picture above, I spent my weekend making furniture and finishing the babies nursery. Relaxing weekends, dreaming about the future are good for the soul.
With that we move on to April blogging, what to write about next…
