It would stand to reason that after reading some tips on successful blogging that I would grind to a screeching halt, much like baking a chocolate cake after starting a diet.The tip I ran across in several sources said, "Blog every day!" But here is what happens to me. The ideas I have come mostly fully formed. In the shower, the car, at any time when my brain is mildly afloat and usually when I am not near a computer. So I jot down my ideas on scraps of napkin, the notebooks I try to have on hand for such purposes, or the backs of lost school papers when the journals aren't present hoping that I can re-capture as much as I can. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it doesn't. Then the mind games set in. I give it a go and if I don't like the result, I save the post but never publish. A few days pass, I try again, and then I work myself into a lather. If I didn't post yesterday, what's another day going to hurt? Before you know it, seven days have passed and the thing I love is shriveling up like most plants I have ever tried to care for. I do not do well with plants, and I have much higher hopes for this blog.
At any rate, I am here with scraps of this and that trying to piece together my next post...don't forget about me. I haven't forgotten about you.
