Giving Up

I find great irony that conventional wisdom tells us to do something for three weeks straight to form a habit. And here we are on day 21 of my attempt to blog every day (at least for August) and I am feeling the desire to give up. Not give up forever, but at least the day-to-day. I just don’t feel like I have that much to say. Or I just have whining or kvechting to do, which need not be captured in perpetuity – as it is fleeting, and in the grand scheme of life, really super unimportant.

Sorry, but forcing the issue just isn’t working for me these days (today). And this is supposed to be fun. So I am going to go back to writing when I think I have something I really want to share or that is interesting to say, and hope that you all agree that its interesting too. TTYL.

    To be fair, most habits involve doing the same thing over and over. With writing you can’t write the same thing over and over ha ha.

    A mental break will be good for both you and your writing. 🙂

    Writing when you know you have good content is way better than writing to form a habit so you’re fine:) you’re audience will thank you 😀 I myself could never write a post everyday lol I came across a post not too long ago that graphically listed 4-5 days as the best number of posts/week, anything less and you don’t exist and anything more and your readers may feel bothered.

    This is OK. Really! Something you like to do should NOT become a chore. Your posts are always interesting and most always fun! So, do them when you want to but just don’t stop totally. We’d all miss them too much 😉

    ‘Twas a great way to learn about your house – THANK YOU! If it’s not fun or the OCD mojo isn’t working, forgetaboutit. Life’s short and time flies (I read that on a blog somewhere). 😉
