Irregularity: Is it possible to prevent it?


Blog posts have been irregular these past two weeks and for that, I apologize. I am working on falling back into my normal Wednesday/Friday/Sunday schedule, but between college, work and National Novel Writing Month, my blogs took a back seat.

Starting today is my attempt to get back into that rhythm. Blog posts will follow the regular schedule unless something extreme comes between them. Of course, there are rare days where things don’t work out the way they’re supposed to and I doubt that I can prevent that. I rarely use the WordPress feature to schedule posts in advance, because I tend to write my posts on the days themselves.

I might try to use that occasionally, but overall, my system does work – life just threw a lot at me, what with the extensive amount of writing and, to be fair, poor planning on my part.

Things will fall into place.

Do you have any advice for keeping a schedule, despite other things interfering?

  1. I’m generally terrible with schedules, so I can relate! The best you can hope is the time and inspiration to shot us a couple of thoughts on the days you want to blog!

    I write on the day, too, but I do have a small folder of prepared blog entries for days when I’m too busy or exhausted. They’re kind of the “back up” blogs. Maybe try that? šŸ™‚


    • I’m usually really good with schedules, but mine has been so erratic lately due to my own take on NaNoWriMo, plus college and my part-time job, that blogging has just messed up.

      I’ve never considered that option, actually. I tend to like my posts to feel “fresh”, even if readers won’t know when it was written. I might give that a try. Thanks for the idea! šŸ™‚

Let me know what you think!
