I am not sure how you blog, but recently I have used a schedule - so I have a list of projects I want to make, I know approximately how long they should take me, and I try to schedule the days I blog about them - and related projects if appropriate - trying to balance tutorials, finishes and progress posts.
The theory is good the practice less so - I would say half of my posts are according to the schedule, the other half is definitely not. I suppose the schedule itself is a bit vague - there are days for posting 'inspiration' for instance... that involves having inspiration in the first place, that day.
I have a schedule for December and I have come to the conclusion there is no way I can make it happen. The list was ambitious, but as I have decided to redo the two projects I made progress with I have managed to really delay progress. Going back to work, despite my best efforts, has disrupted the schedule - I suppose so did going to A+E on the Sunday night prior to going back...
So to pause or not to pause? To come back to my first comment, I do not like not blogging, or and not commenting. But I cannot bear writing posts just for the sake of writing posts within half an hour. And blogging is the only flexible element of my life right now, and time I need, time I will get. I will be crafting - so expect many finishes when I come back. I will continue to update followers on IG, twitter and Facebook.
I will be back on 11 December... This is the date when I get my old desk back - the one that does not show my screen to the world as I will sit in the far corner of my office - and I believe a little blogging at lunchtime is good for life/work balance...
How do you feel about not blogging? How do you manage when it gets too much? Do you have spare posts just for that occasion? I would love to know!
