Late last month I decided I was going to get on board with this whole blogging editorial calendar thing. I got out my planner and wrote in the posts I was planning on certain days and was thoroughly pleased with myself on how fun that was and how great my blog was going to be.
Umm yeah you have not read any of those posts. Turns out I like to plan things but not really do them. I was sitting down to write and looking at the calendar and seeing Post on Commenting Theory written down and then going blank or disinterested. I am pretty sure this was one of the reasons I did not have the best grades in school as in the moment I am great but you tell me in two weeks I am going to talk about migration shift and the day comes I will be over migration shift and want to talk about the influence of TV on high school aged kids (or people man am I so old that high schoolers are kids now?!).
I was getting down on myself though that I had all these great topics and ideas to explore and was not able to translate them onto the screen. So after thinking about it I figured I was better off just doing what I have been doing for almost three years and writing about what it speaking to me that day, and if that means one day I write up three posts and schedule them out woohoo and if I do not write for a week woohoo.
This new old plan of writing what is speaking to me in the moment starts today with this post as it has been on my mind.
What is your blog planning style?
(funny thing also it says cancel X box live on there too and that never happened either!)
(extra p.s. after I hit publish I realized this was my 555th post, that is a whole lot of rambling!)
