Six months into 2019 and I am happy that I didn’t make any New Year resolutions this year. Why? Because I wouldn’t have been able to keep up. Generally, every year my resolutions are pertaining to the blog and I have been very lazy this year. I am taking everything slow.
Not according to the plan
At the beginning of the year, I felt enthusiastic and planned to write 3 blog posts weekly. I couldn’t keep up. Suddenly it felt like a task due to the meticulous planning. Until now I would write with pleasure, suddenly it became daunting to keep up with writing. I was also at the loss of ideas. In these 6 months, March was the only fruitful months in terms of writing. Thanks to the Festival Of Words. Otherwise, there has been a lull. That’s when I even wrote What Are The Ways To Beat The Writer’s Block, but couldn’t follow my own advice. Talk of, ‘Practice before you preach’!
When 2019 began, I decided I will read more this year and took up the Write Tribe reading challenge but have not been able to read as much. Though I don’t have a huge target so I hope to achieve it by year end but yes, I am lagging way behind as of now.
Another decision that I had made this year to be more active on Instagram and grow my following. But being constantly on social media and sharing every small detail became overwhelming for me. I found it extremely difficult to click pictures especially for posting on Instagram. I found that I was not being my true self. Being real and relevant to social media suddenly became a farce. The irony isn’t it!
Top it up with challenges on a personal front
Last one month has been a month of facing many personal challenges. That again became a deterrent and I could not concentrate on writing. I also took a break for a month from writing for My Paper. I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to create quality content for Children.
Don’t know what I am talking about, Read about My Paper- A Newspaper For children.
Zombie Blog Hop
The discussion to revive zombie blogs on Write Tribe what’s app group reminded me of the Word of the year that I choose for myself – Self Belief. Once again, my favourite Write Tribe people came to my aid. And here I am participating in the blog hop, hoping that this post gives me an impetus to keep up with my plan of writing 3 blog posts weekly beginning today. And that I do it with interest and do not consider it to be a task at hand.
