Yesterday I forgot to do my daily post. I have posted something every single day in 2012 and yesterday I just forgot. Actually, I remembered at about 8:00 when I was putting the kids to bed, but immediately after I closed their doors, I climbed right into bed and read my book.
I woke up this morning at 4:13 and realized what I had done and it sent a wave of panic through me. That reaction has led me to make the decision to stop forcing myself to post something every day. I actually considered getting up and writing something really quick in the hopes that I could sneak it on the sly – or make up an excuse about how I preemptively said I wasn’t going to post anything on 9/21/12. How ridiculous is that?
First off, I don’t think many people even realize that I committed myself to writing every day. Secondly, I don’t think many peoplecare if I write something every day, every other day or once a week.
Anyway, I’m still going to post, but I am relieving myself of this daily task. And now that I have put that in writing, I’m sure I’ll be blessed with infinite ideas about what I could write about.
I know what you mean… I was in the habit of writing *almost* every day and had to force myself not to post something. Of course, when I went back home to England for two weeks, that all went out the window… but prior to that, I was an addict. I was convinced that if I didn’t post, my readership and my stats would sink like a rock. For some reason, my blog is configured to central time (I’m on eastern) so I could “sneak” one in between midnight and 1am and it would still count for the day.
