At the beginning of the year, I thought “Oh cool, I’ll start planning my posts weeks in advance”. Yeah, that went well.

I suck at organization. I’m much more comfortable in my messy chaos. But, near the beginning of the new year, (OMG, It’s April! How the fuck did that happen??) I decided to get back in the habit of writing more regularly for my blog.

I searched Pinterest and printed out these cutesy weekly planners for a schedule and filled out my blog post ideas weeks in advance.

Ummm, yeah. That worked out well.

Seeing my ideas written down in ink made me twitchy because I don’t like lists and suck at planning things out. My 14 year-old self came popping up. Meaning? I rebelled against that fucking schedule.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that I’m spontaneous but lists and lots of planning just isn’t my thing.

OMG, THE PRESSURE!!

I’m more of a see where the day takes me kind of person than an organizer.

Just like to-do lists with my husband. I rather nag at him constantly than make a list for him that will be ignored. It’s so much more fun.

Even if I do make a list for, let’s say the store, no matter how many times I look at that damn list while shopping,  I usually forget the most needed items on the list.

Like toilet paper.

Which is what I should turn the pages of my blog post schedule into.

    This made me laugh. I love lists, but could never even try to schedule blog posts in advance. That’s a great theory, but the thought of doing it myself actually makes me a little ill. Good luck to you though ;)

    Even though I know that if I posted frequently and regularly, my blog income possibilities would skyrocket, I just can’t force myself to do it. ~sigh~ I so envy those who can make a list and stick to it.

    I usually just write a draft with the name of a post idea I have and hope when I come back I remember why I thought it was such a great idea Lol.
