Blogging in the summer, wow it has been a real learning curve the last four weeks.
When I have written a post up to now, it has been a bit of a light bulb moment. I get the idea from a place, some photos or a conversation, and then it just flows. Sometimes I have so many ideas buzzing around my head that I forget some. There is no happy medium.
I have compiled myself a list of dos and don’ts for the next time I am on holiday and unable to blog. Or next time the blog world goes into autopilot.
Do write an extra post each week for my archive, this way I can pull them up and schedule them on those days or weeks that we are away.
Don’t try to sit and write a week worth of posts, it fries my brain and I achieve nothing
Don’t feel under pressure to post every day, it is ok to have days off.
Do keep a note pad with me for blogging ideas, this way I can access them whenever I need to.
Don’t leave blanks if I am away, ensure all posts are scheduled and ready so I am not worrying about posting, or writing content.
Don’t feel rejected when my reader numbers drop through the floor, I kept wondering where my readers had gone, wondering what I had said to offend them. They like the rest of the blog world were having a break, that’s all.
Do be prepared and organised. This way I can enjoy my blog, my 4th (child after the boys and the dog) from a safe distance. Without have to constantly give it attention, it can run with it’s schedules whilst I am chilling with my family, and building new memories and inspiration, for posts of the future.
