I once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet…

I thought I would share a bit of what I am working on…  It seems like my days are dictated by what I am able to accomplish.  It’s not always easy, simple, or even productive.

  1. I have been writing a lot, I mean like just about everyday.  I know that if I don’t I can easily fall into a funk of never writing ever, and that can be hard to break.  Whether it’s a sentence or two, a poem, of a full fledged blog post I have to keep motivated.
  2. I have been taking a bunch of photos.  I am still nowhere near being a “good” as a photographer as I would like to be, but I am getting a lot better.  Some shoot days I take as many as four hundred photos.  And it can be daunting when you only end up using about 10-20 of them.
  3. Scheduling, I talk about this all the time, that scheduling posts can be a life saver.  I have some posts scheduled into September.  But I recently expanded on this notion and decided to track my posts in a couple of ways.  I keep a list of the date and title, so I don’t use the same lyrics, and I set up a Google calendar, so I can see what days I’m scheduling posts.  It has made all of the difference.  And once this post is done and scheduled, I’m about 90% done with my March posts.  And I finished this post far before it even hit my blog.  Many bloggers use similar ideas to track their posts, and I gotta say they really work.
  4. WordPress – I’m finally getting the hang of my new platform.  It’s been great, challenging, and absolutely terrifying.  But I don’t regret moving from Blogger at all.  I have learned so much over the past few months, and I am learning a lot day by day.

I love making lists, if you all haven’t noticed, and doing this type of post keeps me honest.  Not to mention accountable.  Tracking my progress is important to me.  It shows how far I have come, not only as a Blogger, but as a writer too, which is something I’ve always called myself, and wanted to achieve.  And on that note, it’s time to end!

All for now,
