Why does life always seem to get in the way? Seriously, I sometimes want to tell the world to go away, I have a blog to write!
Last week, I created an awesome editorial calendar, blog planner, call it what you will. I basically wrote down for the next two weeks when I would write posts, when I would publish them and any accompanying social media posts. It was organised. It was clear. It was beautiful! I was very pleased with myself.
The week started off very well. I wrote my first post, scheduled it, set up some social media stuff. And then my little girl got chicken pox…and we had a bit more family drama…and then I was in a burlesque show and everything completely went to pot.
I didn’t write again and I certainly didn’t publish anything (as you very well know). Instead I sat thinking about all the lovely plans I had made that weren’t going to get done now. It’s really frustrating as some of the stuff I planned to write about was really quite exciting (for me anyway) and I was looking forward to it. My goal for this year is to get a bit more serious with my blogging and maybe start to turn it into more of a part-time job, rather than a hobby. But to do that, I could do with shedding a few of the actual, real-life responsibilities that seem to get in the way.
So I’m writing this post (mainly so I can publish something quickly) and then I plan to get cracking with some of the posts I missed out on last week. And hopefully you’ll like them. And then I’ll sit down and plan posts for the next couple of weeks and hope we have a bit more joy with them… we’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, if you want to see what I’ve been up to over the past few days, I have managed to make occasional posts onto Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr so click the links below to take a look!
