So whenever I come onto my blog, I think three things.
1) Wow. I don’t have that many notifications do I? Why are all the other blogs so successful?!
2) Probably because they post more.
3) Should I post now? Nah, I’ll wait till I get my next notification. I mean, quality over quantity, right? When more people start following, and I finally get my reward for the countless hours I put into my blog then I’ll start posting again! I mean, what’s the point in posting if hardly anyone is there to read it? Besides I have all this homework/reading/
exercising sitting to do!
This repeats in a vicious cycle until… the point of utter despair. This point usually happens late in the night when I have nothing left to lose and I think, “You know what? ASASDFAJDHFALJ!*£$%^&*()” Don’t laugh, it’s actually quite heartbreaking.
I ramble on about something for an hour, press publish, wait for a few minutes for the incoming stream of notifications, and only when I realise that a lot of you are actually asleep at 11:00 and can’t read with your eyes closed do I go to bed. And they wonder why I’m a night owl. -_-
This may be the reason why most of my latest posts are pretty bad compared to my earlier stuff. You see, whenever I do post, it’s because I choose quantity over quality. Whenever I don’t post, I have spent ages writing a post, so much so that it becomes sucked of its fun- then I give it up to the drafts pile and do something else. I CAN’T STRIKE A BALANCE. Add to this my tremendous skills in procrastination and you have a recipe for disaster. So today I have decided to do something drastic. Something I promised myself I wouldn’t do, because I am so, so bad at sticking to guidelines. But I have to try.
I am going to make a schedule.
Basically I’ll post on my free days: Saturday/Sunday, Tuesday/Wednesday, Friday. So three times a week. We’ll see how it goes.
Also, I’ve had a good idea for a new feature which I think will be very interesting. I can’t say when it’ll be announced, but hopefully within the next week. Stay tuned.
DISCLAIMER: The countless hours put into my blog are mainly composed of me refreshing the Stats page over and over.
