The Pattern of Her Thought

I haven’t been keeping up with my blog for a while now and there are a lot of reasons why not—reasons I know most of you could relate to. Instead of cataloguing them though, I thought I’d mention the post on Copyblogger that convinced me I needed to get back on the horse again. Well, not that I fell off exactly. I’d describe it more like taking a long voyage into the interior and staying much longer than I probably needed to.
Anyway, according to the writer on Copyblogger, the five warning signs you might be a “Blograstinator” include: (1) You keep postponing (2) You push so hard it hurts (3) You are easily distracted (4) You’re constantly generating ideas (5) You’re a chatter, not a writer.
There didn’t seem to be a category for I’m-too-busy-watching-TV-and-reading-at-the-same-time, but I could see from the list it was obvious I was postponing things—and the longer I kept putting things off, the easier it was to continue doing this. So enough is enough. I’ve done a spring-cleaning mentally and decided I have to get with the program and start blogging regularly again. Wish me luck.

So happy to wake up this morning and see you here again. It's so exciting when the urge is present once more. Happy too that you've taken this time for yourself, and return to the fray with enthusiasm. Can't wait.

Too funny :) I read and watch TV at the same time too... it seems such a waste to stare at the TV during the boring parts and commercials... and I have 20 times more ideas for blog post than I actually post :)

I missed you! I have been procrastinating on my school blog -- while happily keeping up my personal blog. I felt guilty -- but once it went on a few weeks, i forgot about it. Now you meade me feel guilty again :P LOL

beenebag said...

Good Luck to you:) I've been waylaid by schoolwork so I've not even been writing posts for future postings. That's how I had the last five done. Need to take a weekend and do that myself. Glad to see you want to post again. I do enjoy reading your thoughts (but I do miss talking to you in person at Artfest:)) But don't feel pressured to post, otherwise it'll take all the fun and joy out of it and it just becomes work and another thing on your to do list. Take care.

PS my verification word was FECTRA. Ha.

Kristeena Crabb said...

Aaah, the guilt! But I'm glad to see you back.

I know how you feel. In fact, I've decided to start a new blog, and I have added you to my blogroll. I'm not really live yet, but soon will be. I'm at http://sandrasvintageheart.blogspot.com/

Hope you will drop by and visit sometime in the next month!
