What The Actually Heck?
How do you all do it? I know I need a better posting schedule but I seriously can’t keep this!
When I going through my emails and see all the Bloggers that I follower, I do my very best to read everyone’s work! I know the time it takes to create a great post! Not that mine are great, but I know the time, effort and care that’s put into a blog, and you want them read with appreciation. We want people to read what we write! I know that I do!
But as I gain more followers and start to follow more people, there’s just no way on God’s green earth that I can read everyone post with the care they deserve. I’m seriously in shock how some people can post more than once a day! Some Bloggers are posting 5 or more times in a single day! I have no clue how they have time in their life to do this? How do they take the time to read their comments? Are they reading other peoples blogs? Do they follow anyone? Do they do anything else besides blog? How do they manage these can of schedule and do and again and again day after day? What the actual heck?
I know we all have different skill sets and different lives we live! This makes some things easier or maybe even harder so some of us. Still, to find the time to post 5 or more times a day and have it be a quality blog? I’m partly jealous, partly confused. I wish I could get my writing schedule in order, where I had a new post every week. It’d be awesome to get to my stories, my poems and a journal post publish every day! I wish that I could get to my comments, with great meaningful replies and read every Blogger that I follow, along with still have time to really read their post. But when I’m swamped down with 5 and more daily post there is just no way that I can keep up!
How Do I Keep A Good Schedule?
If I had a good a team of people, a good editor…Lord knows that I need one, I might be able to do this! I just might be able to get what I’ve already started published and out to everyone. I have several stories that need edited, and a few need to be finished. I have SO MANY poems that need the same help! There are a few post that I’ve written about my life that I just simple didn’t post. Why? I don’t know… lack of something…
I can’t get to my comments the way I use to either! I can’t read the blogs I once followed the way that I once did. I’ve lost touch with some of my favorite writers. I hate that! Our connection isn’t the same. They have stopped reading my blog and stopped commenting all together. Sadly, I have done the same. Either way, the connection that I want to have with my followers and the other writers that I am so inspired by has faded. This really isn’t the way I want it.
Now I am asking for help. How in the heck do I get on a good schedule to get my blog back on track? It’s gone off the rails and so how my inspiration! I don’t have any plans to “over post” some 5 time a day, but I would like to get one post published every 4 or 5 days. I’d be very happy with that.
One of the biggest issues for me is, I manage three other people’s busy schedules beside my own. Plus, I am currently on a major health overhaul! Since my surgery, my health has taken over my life in most every way. Working out, stretching, spacing out the timing of taking my vitamins/ meds throughout the day. Along with being careful with my eating and drinking and the timing of that has to be right…it’s a full time job for me right now.
Plus, I’ve really been working on my mental health and spiritual growth. Between jumping in with both feet with my new church, starting a new in-person Bible Study, and volunteer for everything that I can! And also joining a new Life-Coaching class about Forgiveness and Knocking Down Walls, along with continuing my counseling, weekly or bi-weekly, because I’m busy!
So I ask…how do I get my blog, that I love so much and start publishing if this this was my full time job? Well…maybe part-time. Especially, when I have all this other stuff going on! I’m asking all of you out there, that are posting 5 times a day? Tell me your secrets? How do you do it? Do I need to get a special “writing” planner? How do I get on track here and still work the rest of my life in? How do I make time to edit? I need help with that for sure! Help a girl out! How do I post, get to my comments and stay involved with my other creators?
I’ll be waiting for your advice in my comments…. LOL
