So, I was wondering, those of you that blog - how often do you blog? How often do you *plan* to blog? When I started Logan's training log, I tried to post every day or at least several times a week, and was pretty good about it for a while. As his training progressed, I slacked off, partially because there wasn't as much to report since once something is trained you just proof and keep it fresh. Now it's been months since I posted, and in honesty that's mostly because he's essentially done training - just a bit more proofing some things before I'm comfortable using him all the time. It seems tedious to post about every outing when every outing is mostly the same. So, I started to miss that blog, and started another. I was aiming for 3 times a week, with one weekly feature that's simple to keep me motivated. I've missed that weekly feature probably 50% of the time, though on occasion I go back and post it later with an earlier date stamp (cheating lol). I have a ton of different things I want to write about (and even have them saved as drafts with just a title and an empty text box). How do you find the motivation to post regularly? I'm not targeting a specific audience, or even any audience - if people want to read it, awesome, if not, that's fine too. But my main reason for blogging is that I mid writing terribly. I used to write so much - stories, essays, kids' books, poetry, songs - and lately it's just been...nothing. Nothing at all. My blog is far from quality writing, but I figure if I just write *something* regularly, I'll get back into the habit - and maybe, just maybe, I'll come across something that will make me want to write an actual essay or short story again. One more thing, do you ever use some sort of prompt? I used to HATE essay prompts in school, but now I sort of miss them. I can spit out a complete, well-written essay in a matter of an hour (sometimes less) if I have a prompt, but if it's open-ended I just end thinking so long about what to write that I run out of time and don't write anything at all. If you use prompts, is there a particular source that you like to use? So, let's hear it...blogging tips, from a writing perspective!
