I have several unsuccessful blogs that I have started over the past few years. I always start out with a gazillion ideas and a ton of things to say, then life happens and my zeal and zest for blogging begin to dissipate and wallah — a bunch of frustration and no more blogging.
This year it is going to be different! I have read about blogging. I have done some research on successful blogs because, as they say, the definition of insanity is to perform the same action while expecting a different reaction. I want to blog successfully this year which means that I have to do something different than what I have done in the past.
The main thing that I have found is that I need to plan out my topics and try to stick to a plan of posting that makes sense for my lifestyle. As a stay at home mother of 1 year old twin boys I have a crazy life right now, however I believe that with a little perseverance this can be done. I purchased a 5 x 5″ old school calendar at Walmart for $1.99 and have outlined my blog posts through the middle of January. I am aiming to add a new post three times a week, however I must add a new post at least two times a week. Once I have mastered this for a couple of months, then I will try to implement some additional techniques on my blog. This seems simple and doable!
