Well, Happy Thanksgiving Recovery Week.
Right now I’m just sitting at my computer, staring intermittently between the WordPress screen and off into space. Both little boys are napping (at the same time – I know: miracle!). I’m trying to ignore the fact that my house is right now a complete disaster. I’m trying to ignore the half-unpacked suitcases from the Thanksgiving holiday on the floor in the laundry room. I’m trying to ignore the myriad boxes of Christmas decorations strewn throughout the living room and kitchen, ready to be put in their rightful places. I’m trying to ignore the Christmas gift lists that beckon.
I’m trying to push everything aside: I want to write. I need to share. I’m trying to blog.
I’m trying to find just a bit of blank space in my head – somewhere between the Christmas wish lists, Christmas baking lists, Christmas grocery lists, Christmas to-do lists – out of which to conjure up some creative juice from which to post something. Anything. Something that just might be helpful to someone else, or at least interesting. All of the ideas that seem to flow so easily during the day have now vanished in the tumult.
I guess the bottomline is that I want to blog more often than I do.
I know it’s somewhat a matter of priority. I know it’s easier in some seasons of life than in others. I know we’re all different and that some things will work for some of us that would be a complete failure for others. But maybe, in the spirit of sharing, you all have tricks to consistent blogging that I don’t know. I guess I just want to hear from you.
Is anyone with me? Does anyone else have the best intentions but struggle to make it happen? What do you do to make blogging a part – a natural extension – of your life?
