Acknowledged Reset

Reset. I entered February with plans of blogging each weekday about regional and national feminist issues. Just one week into the month I've already realized that goal was a bit too lofty. So today I reset and revamp my plans. Beginning Feb. 11 I will post new content each Monday, Wednesday and Friday and my focus will be writing, wellness, and women's empowerment.

Rejoice. At first I felt a bit discouraged when I forced myself to accept that I can't blog as often as I had hoped. But when I began to think about why I can't blog daily, I wanted to do a little happy dance. OK, maybe I did do a little happy dance. I don't have time to blog daily because so many wonderful things are happening right now -- I'm the new race and diversity blogger for my city's NPR station, I'm freelancing for USA Today and several other publications, and See Jane Write is growing like crazy. Furthermore, I want to start guest blogging more to help get the word out about this little site of mine. Thus, my decision to blog less is not one that saddens me because the fact that I need to scale back is just proof that my prayers are being answered and my cup runneth over.

Do you need to change your plans for your blog? What should you be celebrating today?

  1. Ugh...I have to change plans all the time. I'm a charter school teacher and I'm often handed side projects, from my supervisor, that eat up writing time. I've had to take a day off in the middle of the week to cram all of my freelancing in. It's the smartest thing I've ever done. I feel your pain. However, the fact that I'm being asked to create things for the school, a task never asked of other staff, is a GREAT thing. I see a promotion in the future.

  2. Thanks for sharing. I find myself in the same predicament, I'm also a teacher, however, do you find yourself getting blog topics at the most random times of the day. One of my students made a comment and I thought "hmmm... that would be something great to write about" . Please follow me back I blog about purity for young women.
