Anybody keep in mind this bowl?!
New Actual Speak Sequence
I’ve been pondering of including a fourth submit every week the place I simply sit down to put in writing what’s on my thoughts. Identical to within the olden days!
It’s so exhausting to imagine I used to publish TWENTY ONE weblog posts every week!
I all the time inform folks that it was straightforward to do as a result of my content material (what I ate) auto generated and I simply wrote fluff round it. Seems folks used to actually love fluff! Do you continue to?
KERF might be 15 this 12 months!
Over the previous 12 months or so, I’ve gotten into a extremely fantastic stream of working forward. I LOVE working forward.
I feel I’ve shared earlier than that once I was in school I’d ask for the studying checklist over the summer time so I may get a head begin on the stack of books assigned for the course. This meant I had extra flexibility in my semester – largely for play! (nerd alert)
I completely hate procrastination, and I’ve all the time wanted flexibility to attenuate anxiousness and strain on myself. I don’t work properly beneath strain.
The endless weblog calendar has all the time been and love-hate for me. I like creating posts, however I don’t love the sensation of having to create posts without end. Working forward has taken a few of that stress away.
Working forward on weblog posts has taken a lot of the strain off of my weeks.
My digital assistant, Hillary, and I’ve a content material planning system contained in the productiveness app Asana. We geek out over its group on a regular basis.
For the previous 12 months or so, I’ve been specializing in writing posts which can be search engine marketing optimized and extra “useful” and evergreen subjects that I’m excited to put in writing about don’t require me to put in writing so within the second.
It is a good factor. And the evergreen posts are doing properly, too.
I’m working just a few weeks forward always. Meaning if Birch is dwelling from faculty, or I in any other case get an interruption in scheduling, or simply want a break day, that may occur fear free.
As I’m nonetheless doing journey and recently recaps as journeys or photograph collections populate. However they appear to be fewer and much between. As a lot as I like working forward, I do miss being within the second. These posts are all the time the simplest and most enjoyable to sort up!
Actual Speak Sequence
I began to assume that as well as (not as an alternative of) my common 3 posts every week I may sit down and simply sort up some ideas with a photograph or two and share the day with you all like I did when this weblog was younger. I’ve completely no concept if I’ll like this type or not or if I’ll do it greater than a couple of times a month, but it surely looks as if an excellent bridge between evergreen posts and the previous real-time weblog posts that so many beloved over a decade in the past.
I all the time have 1,000,000 concepts swirling round, so these posts may deal with a subject of the day or be a spherical up of favorites – actually no matter feels good within the second.
Toss in a pleasant photograph of breakfast and it’s a blast from the previous!
I’m making an attempt to do that with out strain. If I really feel like posting I’ll on a Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday. And if not, that’s cool!
One Lengthy Publish
The final element of this information is that I feel I’m going to stack tidbits on high of one another and republish the identical submit fairly than having actual speak after actual speak posts go up that is perhaps exhausting to search out or litter up my again finish. I would delete the oldest one as time passes so there are not more than 5-10 updates on one web page. I hope that is smart!
There’s nothing significantly juicy on this submit – simply needed to set the stage for subsequent time so it doesn’t appear so out of the blue!
Again to the longer term!
Greek yogurt bowl with granola, peanut butter, and pears!
What do you concentrate on this concept?
