So this is not my first attempt at a blog. I have started two others…both ending up totally neglected when life got busy. Here’s the thing…I love the idea of blogging. I have lots to say. I think I have things to share that others will enjoy reading. My problem is that I’m a perfectionist. I suffer from all or nothing thinking. You too? Ugh!
With each of the other blogs, I felt like I needed to write every day. Who has time for that??! Not me. Probably not you. In the past, when too much time passed between posts, I would get discouraged and have trouble getting back on the wagon. I’d think, so much time has passed already that it would be awkward to start again today (or tomorrow, etc.). Can you relate this to anything in your life? The truth is that I already write every day. I write something every day. It may not be blog worthy, however. So this time around, I’m going to moderate my expectations of myself. This blog is going to be a priority, but it can’t be my main priority. My goal is to blog 3-4 times per week. That I can do.
What can you expect? The occasional recipe – some might even be good for you. Musings about articles I have in progress – maybe little teasers for future published pieces. Nutritional wisdom as I am inclined to share. Inspirational quotes. Plus, probably the occasional reference to my Sweetheart and our little baby bird. Basically, I’m just going to do what I can with what I have. I’ll do my best to keep it interesting if you promise to give me several opportunities to get it right. Leave me some feedback sometime too – that way I’ll know I’m not in an echo chamber!
