Don’t hate me because I’m…
If you mentally finished that sentence while thinking of Kelly LeBrock’s Pantene commercial from the 1980s, you’re showing your age…like me! 🙂
But I digress…
Don’t hate me because I’m not keeping up with all of your posts, especially in recent weeks.
This “rebuild after flood” situation has been nothing less than a nightmare and destressing by writing (which means less reading) has been one of the few things keeping me afloat…
But you’ll have to continue hating me a little while longer because for this month of October, I’ll be preparing for ….
I’ve started “clearing the decks” in order to fully focus on the November challenge by:
- working on an outline of what I’d like to tackle during November;
- organizing the blogs I read into email, RSS feed and WP Reader categories;
- testing out a new writing method to increase my daily word count; and
- not following any new blogs until I’ve regulated #2 above.
You may not believe it but I rarely look at the numbers on my blog and only recently did I realize what that number was!
I’ve never wanted to be a “hollow follow” so if you have any tips to give me on #2, please let me know.
I’ve also been toying with a few themed ideas for the 2017 April A to Z Challenge (2017)…I know, I know, April is next year but my brain needs time to marinate ideas. And it’s a procrastination tool too! 🙄
Lastly, October is also my BIRTHDAY month and just like last year, I’ll be spending less time online and doing more reading, rejuvenating and reflecting on where I’d like the next year to take me.
But heads up! There will be another Share A Link Event on October 11, 2016 so remember the date!💕
