Current Word Count: 16,344
Each day seems to be getting harder and harder to get the word count done, but at least today I succeeded. It probably didn’t help that I also wrote a fifteen hundred word book review today (I’ll be posting it in Dec.).
I’ve never really shared how I write my blogs, from the initial idea to how much ahead of the posting time I finish it. Keep in mind, I wasn’t the type in school to wait until the last minute to finish an assignment. I made sure to have at least a few hours or a day to spare in case something happened.
In writing my blogs, I can start a blog the evening before it’s supposed to go up, or I can have it written a week ahead of time. Usually, I find the times that works for me which vary depending on my week. One of the reasons I quit my Daily Thoughts (which I started earlier this year and did for about three months) was because the daily grind of writing is so difficult for me. Instead, if I say I’m going to post once a week, it gives me a chance to think of an idea and do the research necessary. If it’s a really busy week, I write a short blog. If I have more time, I write a longer one.
What I’ve learned in keeping my own blog, which is essentially an online diary about reading and writing, is that it’s all about finding what works for you.
I know that some of the people that follow this blog (some of whom I follow back) have their own blogs. So I’m curious how you guys go about posting. Do you post only when you have an idea? Or do you stick with a schedule? I will see you all tomorrow and, as always,
Best wishes in your life full of adventure,
