It’s only been a month, but I’ve grown fond of my blog. Seeing what people think of what I’ve written makes me happy. However, sometimes, life slips by faster than I intended it to, and so all writing falls by the wayside. Hands up if you know what I mean. I want to keep my blog running on the three-day publishing cycle that I’m trying to set up (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). And I want a way to record some ideas for blogs, that are not yet fully formed.
I am planning a week-long vacation in the not-too-distant future. During this time, I’m not going to have all the time in the world to blog. In fact, due to unavoidable hassles, there will be very little time to write, let alone publish, a blog. Well, as I was pondering my soon-to-be problem, and the one I currently have as well, I realized that you can save an unpublished draft and come back to it. Yippee!
So I started one blog, saved for that week, and while it’s unfinished, I’m liking the content and want to publish it now. I keep holding back, however, because I know that I’m going to need content to publish that week.
But this writing for the future has given me another problem to hurdle. How do I go about my daily business, trying to find a job, keep in touch with family, work on my WIP, write my blog for now, and all the other stuff I do on a daily basis, and still find time to write blogs for future use? Especially considering that I have a little trouble getting all this done without the addition of the last little tidbit.
I have no idea, but I’m attempting it anyway. I’m doing this for several reasons. 1. I want my blog on a routine (whether I am on vacation or not) because I need structure in my life. And 2.When life gets in the way, I have literally no time to write, it would be great to have something to fall back on. Speaking of which, life calls and I’ll have to end this post sooner than I would have liked. But, one must make money if one wants to live.
Does anyone else do this? Write blogs in advance? If so, how do you find the time with everything going on? I know I can’t be the only one out here who seems to stay relentlessly busy.
