Yesterday, another milestone at Zinc Moon was quietly achieved….I have now posted daily for 500 days…in a row!
There has been some close calls due to such issues as me being ill, or scheduled posts not publishing when they should…but so far, I haven’t missed a day!
I am worried that I am going to run out of things to write about one of these days…hasn’t happened yet, but it does concern me.
And I will hate it when I have to break this posting marathon due to circumstances out of my control.
But for the foreseeable future, I am going to continue on as I have done since I first opened the door at Zinc Moon!
So I how do I blog daily while working full time?
Two main things help me…planning ahead and always having a draft or two extra sitting in the bag for emergencies!
I also make the most of when the creative juices are flowing, and draft up ideas…some see the light of day, some end up in the trash.
I can hear some of you saying “oh, the pressure” and “I couldn’t handle the stress” but the truth is, I actually enjoy it!
I like having the routine of posting each day, and the sense of achievement when it is done…I like having the incentive to get out and find new things to do and explore, rather then sitting at home all day….and I like writing!
Blogging has brought some unexpected benefits, in particular it has widened my horizons and made me do things I have never been brave enough to do…for example, I am now getting more confident appearing in front of the camera regularly as part of my #dressup2015 challenge.
Blogging has also exposed me to some very narcissistic personalities, who can crush you with just a few words, but it has also revealed those with kind hearts and soft voices….I have met some wonderful new friends who I chat daily with about anything and everything!
I discovered the term “personality blogger” a while back, and that is what I am…I write about me, my life with my husband and our shared experiences.
I am real…from the bottom to the top!
A big thanks to all you lovely people who take the time to visit and read my rambles…I appreciate every single one of you and I hope you are enjoying this blogging journey!
So I will finish this 501st post by saying follow me, and let’s see where it will take us…I can assure you it will never be boring!
