In five years of blogging at Didyoumakethat, I’ve never had a blog schedule. But I’m beginning to wonder if I should.
The aspects of blogging that I have always really loved are spontaneity and independence. I’ll write about what I want to, when I want to, if I want to. I do enjoy regularity of blogging – staying in contact with my readers. But this winter I’ve sometimes had to dig deep to support the hobby I love. And I do love blogging.
With about 30 minutes of natural light per winter day, the options for taking blog photos can be really limited. Plus, with a full-time job and a dog to walk, my midweek sewing time often contracts to zero. Which means that both blogging and sewing end up being weekend pursuits. As does having a life, seeing my friends, getting out of the house and sleeping in! So, you know.
I’m not alone in this dilemma. There has to be a solution, surely!
I’ve dragged a monthly planner home from the office. I’m going to attempt to use it to think ahead and plan a bit more. Within reason. I’m sure there’ll still be the spontaneous blog post written propped up in bed at 5am or 10pm. I just can’t help myself. I’m a splurger.
What about you? Are you a planner or a splurger? And do you have any tips for someone who’d like to be both?
