My other blog has been abandoned for more than a year. I tried then wished to at least write a single post each month. For once, I did succeed. Yet the rest of the time my guilt keeps on haunting me for inviting and giving in to laziness. Spare Lostintheleafcity. Tall order. Definitely!
To avoid veering away from my goal, first I made a plan. Second, here comes the problem. Third, I wouldn’t entertain the lazy part of me; instead, I intend to embrace new blogging habits.
1. Always carry a notebook. For now, I have a huge notebook with me which need a peewee company that I can carry all the time. Since, I find myself most of the time surfing on my iPhone while I’m waiting for a bus might as well scribble the pen.
At least, I would have the option when I look into my bag. But would I have the courage and zest to look odd wielding the mighty pen?
2. Make a time for blogging. Or should I say scribbling notes. I always complain of not having enough time to write but it’s just me making alibis. I realized how many times opportunity went into waste. (How time flies when I’m hunting for online deals and reading someone’s comment or post in Facebook.)
So I do have time after all. Though, I have a day job, I know I can, and must commit in writing a post as if it’s part of my routine.
Let’s see, I can drink tea or coffee while writing at night. Quite convenient and typical. Or have a B and B (breakfast and blog) or blog in bed during or before breakfast.
These are just plans. It’s up to me to make it happen. I need to constantly motivate myself. (And pick myself up
beat up whenever I fail). For now I am a victor because I’ve written this post while the sun is not yet setting.
I scribbled the idea on a notebook and the post materialized on my laptop. Two new and queer blogging habits were accomplished. Now, I can do some useless, unrelated blog tasks—just a few minutes.
