I have done my daily posts, to the best of my ability, for a little over five months. When I first started doing them, I thought it would be fun, and it was in some ways. But for the most part, posting daily has been a stress. If I don’t put a post up, I fret over it, even if there was simply no way for me to do it the day before. Though I started out trying to post on the same day the events I wrote about happened, I more often posted on the day after. I’ve discovered I have fun finding things to take pics of for my posts, but can’t keep up with the pics on a daily basis because I simply can’t find anything that relates to my posts most times.
So with this post, I’m ending my run of daily posts. It’s just not me, and I see no reason to keep up with something I don’t find a lot of pleasure in. My plan is to rethink my site—again—and decide what all I want to do with it. I’ll more than likely discontinue my separate Fool’s Errand site and move what posts are there over to this site.
One of the things I missed most about my switch to daily posts about what I’ve done each day were the more personal posts I put on this site. I was trying to run a more professional site, but I’ve since decided that I’d rather be the real me instead of some twit who posts about nonsense crap every day. Honestly, I don’t much care about following people who endlessly list tasks completed, so I figured why bother subjecting my (5) followers to the same? Also, I’d rather space my posts out over the week.
Aside from Fool’s Errand posts here each Saturday, I don’t expect to do much posting until the new year. I want to spend the remaining weeks of 2018 planning what I’ll write about. No, it certainly won’t be daily lists of tasks completed. Depending on how many topics I manage to jot down and what they relate to, I may assign specific topics a specific day.
