Weekly Goals

on July 19, 2012

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Change my author name.
  3. Submit some requests to guest post at other sites.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.)

    Yahtzee is pretty much the bee’s knees.

  2. If blogging becomes obligated then the writing reads like stale bread. Go play! Life is too short.
