Blogging Resolutions

I know it’s not the beginning of a new year or anything, but as I thought about posting this morning and had nothing pop in my head, I decided I should probably reconsider how I do this. So, the following are some things I will try to do to make the blog better(it can’t get any worse)

  1. Stop pressuring myself to post – It’s better to post nothing than to force a post. I would like to have something to say every day, but that might not be realistic. If I’ve got nothing I will move along and go about my day postless.
  2. Jot down ideas – As I think of things throughout the day I will try to write them down or record something on my phone. I tend to have my better ideas at inopportune times.
  3. Plan my weekly posts all week – Write down my thoughts on movies, books and TV all week so I’m ready for my week in review posts. Write down good things as they happen for my What’s Good posts. They should be easier.
  4. Use my alone time – I have two hours alone every night. Seems that would be a better time to write than the short amount of time I have in the morning before work. It might make the posts better if I take my time.
  5. Be better at interacting with others online – I read a lot of blogs, but rarely comment. I should be better about interacting with other bloggers.
  6. Be more willing to write about every day life – I sometimes start to write a more mundane post about y daily life and decide it’s too boring. I should let the readers decide that. Write it if I want.to write it.
  7. Stop over thinking – posts like this will show you that I over think things. Just write when I feel like writing.

I don’t know if I will follow through in any of these, but I will try.

    Those are good resolutions. I think perhaps the best is to write during your two hours of alone time. No rush, no fuss, and if you don’t have anything to say, no problem.

      I think that is the best one as well, but that’s also my “sit on the couch and watch TV” time.

        Then once or twice a week, write instead of watching? I know, easier said than done. I’m not very good with sticking to a plan.

    Sometimes you need that break! I’ve been trying to post 3-4 times a week but I don’t follow a schedule and life got in the way last week. I took a full seven days to post! I’m not even bothered! I had a rough week and the quality time that my colleague/friend stole from my blogging time was spent shopping and relaxing together instead. 🙂

    I really appreciate people who write daily blogs. I have kept myself a target of one a week. There are times when I am not happy with the kind of post I write. I sometimes wish I could repost one of my earlier posts with some modifications.
    Appreciate your tips.

    These are great blogging resolutions a lot of us can relate to. I need to try to be more organised and write posts more in advance especially when there’s months when I’m really busy!
