Once again, I’ve disappeared for a certain amount of time from blogging. Why? Oh, there’s a list of reasons, but I think I’ll go with the fact that I binge-read the Mediator series and was consumed by a fictional world again as the excuse.
Not that excuses are going to get me anywhere in life.
I need to get this blog up and running for real. I’ve had a good start, but it crashed and burned like every other project I have ever started. And it filled me with self-loathing and bitterness, which is not healthy for a human being.
But unlike other projects, I’m not going to give up. I’m going to keep this blog around and try to build upon it.
I think a positive I’ve learned from this is that I can’t just write willy-nilly. I need to plan ahead and set up posts on a schedule. Maybe just binge-write on a day off and set up the posts.
On Twitter, I found a link to an article about how scheduling can make a person a better blogger, and all I could do was nod in agreement with what it was saying. It seems like a thing that can work for me and the blog itself.
Yes, it sucks that I fizzled out again and am scrambling for a plan again, and I’m not expecting it to be fool-proof or a one-trick solution, but it’s something willing to try. I’m just not happy that I’m struggling, but what can I do? I have to go with the old cliche and make lemonade out of lemons.
