I have a confession – I’m rather unorganised. I struggle to stick rigidly to lists and am forever putting things off that I really am not all that keen on (housework, obviously!) but I find my own little systems and they seem to work. Charlie has never been late for school and all his reply slips, football and PE kits are in school on the correct days so the important things I am on top of. But when it comes to blogging – I think I need to knuckle it down!
See, if I have a review or post to do for someone else then I’m totally on the ball only ever once having to move a self imposed deadline back a few days so again – the important things I can totally nail. But my own posts would have some of you wincing!
Look at that – 55 drafts! I remember a Facebook group chat there some people were despairing at having 2 or 3 sat in there! But all 55 have snippets of content that I needed to save and draft out. Some draft posts literally have one line, others a few paragraphs and a lot are almost finished and just need some proof reading and tweaking. There’s even a couple that are ready to go but I’m waiting to build up the courage to press publish and release my thoughts to the Internet-sphere.
I’m not very good at using a pen and paper to capture my thoughts, ideas and feelings – plus 9 times out of 10 I forget where I wrote it or the girls will get to it first resulting in an artistic piece of scribbles and then ripped into a thousand soggy pieces!
On the whole I tend to blog around 5 times a week. I have two linkies that I always join in with religiously on a Sunday and Wednesday but the other days can be incredibly random. There are days where I will sit and write a post and instantly press publish or quite often schedule the night before. I like the spontaneity of my posts and often post what is exactly on my mind in that 24 hour timeframe.
To most it may seem a tad erratic but for me it works!
What’s your blogging routine and system?
