I am a big fan of “to do” lists. A quick search of my desk will lead to a discovery of at least ten “to do” lists of one sort or another. And I am certain that if I cleaned out my car, I would find a collection of grocery lists and errands lists that I bring with me out to the car, but never seem to bring with me into the actual grocery store.
What does me being a fan of to do lists have to do with a blog post? Well, I haven’t posted an entry in…quite a while. It’s not for lack of ideas. I have many. I could blame it on losing my fancy camera because many of my ideas involve photos to add to the post. I could blame it on the fact that I seem to be a total moron when it comes to uploading and adding pictures to my blog. It’s really not that hard, I just always make it more complicated than it is. A lack of posts could be blamed on my darling cherubs who are home for vacation.
There are many things to add to the list of “Why I Haven’t Posted on My Blog”, but the bottom line is, I don’t have my act together. I need to have a plan and a goal. So here it is, for all to see. Yes, I know it’s already Thursday, so I only have a couple of days to get to work on this week’s list. (I work better under pressure.) If I put this list out here for everyone, I’ll be held accountable. And I’m all for accountability.
So here goes:
- Write all the posts I have in my head into a draft. Note to self: You know if you don’t, you will forget them.
- Change my author name.
- Submit some requests to guest post at other sites.
- Take the photos I want to use in upcoming posts. Get them off the camera and uploaded onto WordPress. Don’t let the point and shoot camera stop you.
- Clean off my desk and organize my to do lists into one simple list.
OK. Here goes. But first, I have to play a game of Yahtzee with my boys! (It’s educational and they don’t know it – there’s a blog post in that one too.)
