In most areas of life, I’m pretty steady. I’m dependable. And I like knowing people count on me to keep things moving.
But I have a weakness when it comes to this blog. At least twice each week, I think up a good idea for a blog post. Looking at my dashboard, I have five in progress right now. Yet, it continues to collect “dust” while I run through life. I still scratch my head in wonder at how other people find time to be consistent in updating with new content bi-weekly or daily.
If I’m honest with myself, there are days I wonder if what I have to say will stand out against the thousands of other blog posts posted each day. And, as I sit here at 8:30 pm typing this post, my kiddo is reading a book by herself, and I’m on the computer. There are clean dishes in the dishwasher that need to be put up. Laundry in the dryer to be folded. 10 emails waiting for me to wrap them up and hit “send”. Four open Word docs I need to complete and email. And two excel files I have to format.
It would be easy to continue putting my blog on hold, because life is crazy and there are a million other things that need my attention. But there’s one question I keep asking myself :”Do I love doing this?” The answer is Yes. Which means that I need to be as creative in finding time for this as I am in getting everything else done. Thanks for coming along for the ride while I gave myself a swift kick in the tail. I needed that.
