Seriously? It's been 5 months?!
ok, I knew I hadn’t blogged for a while, but I did NOT realize it had been since JANUARY!
There are main 3 things that keep me from blogging:
1. Distraction-every time I go to our blog to add a new post, I look through all of our friends’ blogs first…and boy does my blogging time just slip between my fingers.
2. I’ve posted so infrequently that by the time I sit down to do it, there are TONS of things to blog about and SO many pictures to sort through. This leads to a sort of binge-blogging behavior where I cover a ton of ground with each post. Then next time I need to blog, I put it off because last time it took SO LONG.
3. Somewhere deep inside, I hesitate to blog because I don’t have a long-term plan for family journaling. I still write in my journal-yes, old school style with pen and paper- as well as add to Kayden’s digital scrapbook, type in the word document I have as my own digital journal, and then there’s Facebook. This is what we call indecision. I need to find a method that works for us and stick with it. Any advice or ideas from any other moms out there who are trying to keep journals/scrapbooks/life books in this digital age??
As Darin knows well, distraction and indecision are two of my biggest handicaps. I do believe I will be able to overcome them with time and effort, but it’s sure long road to recovery! For now…I’ll keep trying.
