Before I get into today’s blog, I’d just like to quickly mention that there was a new post yesterday. For reasons that I have yet to determine, yesterday’s post is showing up as two days ago’s post and so it didn’t appear in the WordPress reader. If you want to check it out, I wrote about five signs that you may need a break from your phone.
Anyways, today I thought that I would write a general catch-up post and sort of explain to you all what the next couple of weeks are going to look like in terms of blog posts. One of my biggest goals this month was to develop a conducive blogging schedule and so I figured it would help if I chatted about what I was thinking.
If you’ve been following along with this blog for more than a couple of months, then you probably know that I’ve never really had a set blogging schedule. The reason behind that is that when I first started my blog, I didn’t know how often I would have the time to write. As the months have gone on, however, I’ve found myself blogging more and more frequently. This is because I developed a consistent work and life schedule. I had a clear idea of what I needed to get done every day and budgeted my time carefully. This is what has allowed me to blog so often these past couple of months.
And while my long-term work and life schedule isn’t changing, my short-term one is. April is shaping up to be a busy month for me. I’ve got a lot going on in every aspect of my life and I’m not sure how much time it’ll leave me for blogging. I won’t know until we proceed a little further into the month.
If things go the way that I want them to, then you won’t see many changes to my posting routine. I’m going to continue to make the effort to produce content as often as I can. But if things go differently than expected, there could be a few less blog posts in the month of April. I’m hoping this doesn’t happen, but on the off-chance that it does, I don’t want it to seem like I’ve suddenly deserted this blog. It could seem like that, but I promise it’s not the case.
Once May rolls around, things will go back to normal. The craziness of my schedule will taper off and I’ll return to my old routine. Like I said, I’m pretty sure that nothing is going to change. This post is simply a precaution in case things take an unexpected turn.
If you’ve been blogging for even a few months, you probably know how demanding it can be. If you don’t keep your priorities straight, it can easy to fall behind. I promise I’ll try to stay consistent, but if I can’t I just want you all to know why. I can’t wait for this month to be over so that my regular schedule resumes.
How do you deal with blogging on a busy schedule?
