So as I wrote yesterday, this month I’m trying something I haven’t done before: I’m going to blog four days per week.*
Before now, I’ve done all or nothing. Either I’ve blogged every day… for a whole year (longer, in fact)! Or I’ve done no blogging whatsoever.
Let’s look at each. All: blogging every day. Very interesting experience. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I just want to get it done. This was especially great in proving myself that I could do it for a whole year. Last month I got a lot out of blogging again, yet there were times that I felt fatigue. I began to ask myself, “Why am I doing this?”
And now for Nothing: not blogging. Basically, there’s no sense of growing. No expression (at least, not writing). When I wasn’t blogging at all there was a sense of missed opportunity.
On the other hand, it can be good for times when I am busy on other projects or need a breather from the constant posting.
|All (ie Daily Blogging)||New opportunity, sense of accomplishment, some posts are gems, creative expression, no brainer idiot-proof plan (post everyday no matter what!)||Can get trying sometimes, always sharing|
|Nothing (ie No Blogging!)||Good while working on other projects, not having to share always||Not expressing can feel lame if nothing else doing|
So anyway, for this month, I’m gonna do something mid-way between the two. We shall see what happens!
*I realize this may seem like a silly thing to talk about. This being my blog, I get to discuss silly things if I think they are worth writing about (including talking about the process of blogging)!
