OK, so it’s been a week since I wrote publicly that I wanted to get back into writing on this blog (writing in general, really) and yet, this is the first time I’m writing. If I was serious about it, wouldn’t I have written some posts by now? Maybe some actual content, instead of posts about posts, like this one?
Don’t answer any of those questions, they’re rhetorical. Yeah, I’ve dropped the ball already. Thank goodness those weren’t resolutions, I dodged a bullet there. I just came in from a walk with my puppy and as I did it without headphones lodged in my ears, I had the opportunity to do some thinking and some planning. Naturally when I’m walking and without anything to write with is when I do the most thinking.
My pledge as I write this is to work on getting at least 6 weeks’ worth of blog posts written (or at the very least, mostly written). Next, I’m going to turn Facebook sharing on, finally; I want people to read this, and the most views I’ve seen have come from when I shared a post or two on Facebook.
There are some reasons why I haven’t shared with Facebook up to now. One is that I am I guess shy about sharing my work with people I know (which is stupid, since I’m perfectly fine sharing with strangers). The other is that I feel like I’d be spamming my friends feed. Also a stupid reason, since I barely post at all. Sharing an extra 1-2 links every week isn’t going to hurt anything.
I am at least hoping that having more people read it on a regular basis will motivate me to keep searching for more things to write about and share. Wish me luck!
