Making Changes.

I have been a terrible blogger lately and I’m sorry for that. I don’t know why I haven’t been posting regularly or having posts of good content within the few posts that I have been putting up. I honestly have no idea why I have been so bad at this lately. It’s not like I’m so busy or anything- like I’m busy but not like I have been in the past when I managed to blog everyday. Maybe it’s because I’m not constantly pressuring myself to do so and I’m prioritizing other things when this should be one of my first priorities.

Blogging is something I genuinely love to do and if it’s something I enjoy and when I try I would say that I’m half decent at, it’s something I should continue to do. I need to make priority changes. I spend too much time doing things like sitting on my phone playing games or sitting on Tumblr. I don’t spend time doing this. I need to get on my laptop and rather than stare and question every thought I have, I need to just write it.

I need to stop taking back my decisions and ideas just because for some reason they scare me. I’m tired of being scared of my own opinions and basic blog post ideas. It shouldn’t matter if people like them or not- it should matter whether or not I like them. If I like it, why shouldn’t I write it? I’m not going to focus on that because that’s a recurring problem that I’ve written about multiple times. What I am going to focus on is the fact that I need some sort of structure or change in my blogging. I need  to develop some sort of plan to where I know I’m posting on certain days and I need a way to hold myself to that- so if anyone has any ideas please share. I will also be writing multiple times of quality posts this week to make up for my lacking the past few weeks. I don’t know if I’m the only person I am currently disappointing- I sure hope so. I need to promise myself as well as everyone else that I am going to be writing 3-5 quality posts a week that I can be proud of and not dread hitting publish because I know that it is so bad.

I know that you probably didn’t need to know that I’m going to start holding myself accountable but it’s something I need to do so I’m going to try my best to do it. Does anyone have any advice on sticking to a schedule?

    Mary,
    I think it’s really good that you want to start being more dedicated to your writing. Maybe you should set an alarm on the days you want to write posts on your phone. Also, maybe you could work together with someone on your writing (I’d love to write another post with you!). Working with someone else would help you come up with ideas and would help you stay focused. I think collaborating is a great way to get different perspectives on things, while adding your own opinions.

    I think it’s great that you want to write without worrying about what others think. I think one of the hardest things is to write for yourself, without worrying about getting things published or what others might think. Sometimes writing is about taking risks, which isn’t always easy. Let me know if you want to work together on something! Good luck with your writing!
