Hello and Good Morning, everyone!
Believe it or not, I’m recently coming out of a new blogger slump. I’ve wanted to blog for years and I genuinely thought I had decent content coming out the nose. Found out that it wasn’t true and I commend everyone who is consistent with their posts because it’s honestly hard. This draft has sat patiently and waiting for my to find my motivation to complete it for more than a month now. Along with several others, but I’m working on them.
I liken myself to a squirrel. A little bit here and a little bit there; flick my tail every now and again, you guys get the picture. That being said I know that I tend to be a bit erratic when it comes to both posting and my rambling within my posts. A huge thank you for everyone sticking around through this all. Blogging is just a smidge more intensive than I had initially thought.
I’m trying to find a happy medium with all of the topics that I want to cover. I had considered initially having certain topics set for certain days, but that has NOT worked out in my favor. I’m finding that it is difficult to churn out content (that I think is good) just because. So I’m dedicating time and effort into changing my approach about it.
I know that I’d like to publish at least 2 posts a week. Three if I’m feeling extra creative. But for now I’m going to take the stress off of myself and not promise to write about topics on certain days. I don’t think it is fair to my readers or myself to put out something that is inferior just because I said I would. On top of all of this, I’m now keeping another toddler so my free time during the day has been greatly reduced.
Between the babes and housework, I’ve been bouncing all over the place trying to keep ahead. There are some Super Moms out there and they are my heroes. I’ve got to work up to their level, I can’t expect to run a marathon straight out of the gate.
In my last post, I stated that I wanted to try to be true to my original intention of blogging. To share my life with anyone who is interested in reading it. Incidentally, this may mean that I’ll be writing less “helpful” posts. I won’t swear them off, but again, they are not my primary focus anymore.

Obviously I am still working on a schedule and scheduling. I think it would be easier for certain readers if I did make it towards topics being posted on designated days, but I’m not there yet. As it stands now I’m trying to my original goal of posting twice a week. Monday and Wednesday one week and Tuesday and Thursday the next week. I am also using the rest of this downtime to get caught up with the 20 drafts that I have sitting and waiting on me. A new goal is to work my way towards having a month’s worth of work completed so should anything come up, I won’t be late. Little by little, I am figuring out exactly what to do. Honestly, it may have been easier if I had just coughed up some money and took one of the 100’s of online courses available on blogging. I may do that later, but for now, this is mine and mine alone.
