So the blogging journey is hard for all of us. We struggle with the same things, blogging daily, finding time to read and comment. Writers block. How many to follow. Social media.
Consistency is something I have struggled with.
I started in March 2016. Both March and April 2016 I only posted 5 per month. Then, I upped by game in May. Then in July a landed a part time job after not working for TWO YEARS. I was able to go back to my old job as Business Analyst looking after HR and Payroll system. My boss is lovely and had given me space to adjust, but 10 weeks on I know I need to step up at work. I only work 3 days a week. Because, I support/assist my mum who had two heart attacks. First in 2012 which was followed by a triple by pass, but I was able to work full time after 6 months. But in March 2015 she had another heart attack, after 3 weeks being at home we where back at hospital and she had to have a pace maker (dual) and well life is not the same for her at all. She has a new normal . We both do charity work on Tuesday and Thursday. She learnt Sage Line 50 data entry before her second heart attack and is doing data entry at the charity (Brahma Kumaris) with me.
Me returning back to work after two years – oh Man – I don’t advise it to anyone!!! Oh what a shock, it happened so fast in week of asking the question I was in (because it was my old boss and the work I did – well – it left a mark).
So then July and August have been ish consistent. I set myself of daily blogging in September with a schedule of sorts. And on the whole I am doing kind of okay. But things are suffering like reading and commenting on others blogs and suffered a bit of a major writers block.
Anyway that the back story. Life is good, and as I say an new normal and almost adjusted. I have been thinking about my darling , my baby, my blog. I have been thinking it is growing nicely and may new followers, likers and commentor. I am thankful to old and new followers , likers and commentors.
So my thought is that OCT 2016 I wont post 7 days a week. It really pains me to say that – because I really love you all and your comments on my blog, and I feel like I am letting you down by not posting every day.
Anyway, I haven’t quite decide if I reduce the schedule to 6, 5, or 4. Do I do it just for Oct 2016 or forever. Part of me says let me post on Wed, Thursday, Sat and Sunday and leave it at that. Let Saturday be my Quote day as that seems to be popular.
So the feedback I would like from my beautiful followers, likers, commentor – what would you like from me in OCT and going forward if I stop daily blogs? Would you be happy with Saturday as Quote day, and the other 3 or 2 days as my thoughts and spirituality , positive type posting ? Would Wed, Thursday , Sat and Sunday be okay?
Do let me know your thoughts. In writing this, my heart is breaking that I wont post each day – wow ! what attachment I have. I miss you all already – eek.
Anyway – reducing the blog post doesn’t stop me from blogging additional post when I have time.
Your thoughts please – comment below
Thanks in advance
