As well as this, it is near-on impossible to write-up long blog posts every week - let alone every few days - between work, family, friends, exercise, baking, FUN...and all the other things I hold dear. My solution until now has been to just not blog at all until I can find a day to dedicate to it, but 3 years since my debut post and that 'day' comes but once a month (if I'm lucky) and so until I tire or retire I need to find a different way of living out my writing dream.
Instead of giving up my blog all together, I am succumbing to social blogging norms (reluctantly) and have decided to try and write shorter posts (with the odd meaty piece in between, because everyone loves a good nosy into ones heart). So this year I will blog in the same way in which I eat - little and often. I vow to blog;
- with more variety
- with less emotion (please realise this is like asking The Hulk to walk in a less muscly way)
- ultimately just more
What I don't want to do is lose the quality of writing. It is easy to forget to write creatively and beautifully when you're bashing out a pre-tea update just to fulfill a quota, but I write to write and for no other reason, so to lose that creative element would for me negate the whole purpose.
Wish me luck!
