Blogging is easy. Blogging CONSISTENTLY is hard! I do not blog for extra income, but as a way to document life. I tried scrapbooking, but am way too much of a perfectionist for that so that’s why I decided to blog. Blogging is a great way to record moments in our life that I want to make sure we remember forever no matter how wonderful or messy they may be.
I say all of that to say that the past few months have been full of changes for our little family of 4… Mickey has started a new job with a new company in a new state, our house went from under contract to back on the market to back under contract, the majority of our belongings have been packed into PODS which are currently being stored until further notice, and the girls and I are temporarily living with Grams and Pop-O. Add that on top of the beginning of another school year and you have one woman who is trying hard to hold it together, but is really just an emotional wreck! Needless to say, blogging has not been a top priority. However, I do not want this season of life to pass us by and not have any written record of life as we know it. It may be busy and it may be crazy, but it is our life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
So, in order to stay on top of my blogging “duties” I wanted to share a few tips that I plan to try over the next few weeks:
1- Jot down ideas for posts as soon as they come to me. My phone is never too far away so I can type my idea into my Notes app and save it for later.
2- Blog a few posts at a time and schedule them for when I want them to “go live.” This will allow me to keep my blog current, but not require me to blog everyday. Plus, once I get in the groove, it is easier to post a few at a time because my juices will already be flowing!
3- Use the Blogger app on my phone. Since the majority of my pictures are taken with my phone anyway this makes posting so easy and I can post from anywhere.
I really hope this plan works. I guess only time will tell! If you have any tips for how you keep your blog fresh and current please share!
Until next time….
