I’ve been horrible lately. When I first started this blog 7 months ago, I had all kinds of posts scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance. I had reviews, discussions, daily book updates, etc.
But here lately? I’m not keeping up as well anymore. Part of that is that I now have a full-time job. I was jobless when this blog started, and for the first 3 months I had tons of time. I’m still doing fairly well with scheduling reviews in advance. Right now I have 2 weeks worth, with 2 extras later this summer (ARC reviews…)
But as much as I love my Fantasy Creature Friday posts that I came up with and started last November, sometimes I just keep putting it off. Yesterdays FCF I wrote up the night before it went live. Usually I try to do them earlier in the week, just to make sure I don’t forget or have something come up.
Discussions have also been a scramble some weeks. This one right here? It’s currently 10:45pm on friday, I just got off work and have to be back at work at 8am in the morning. But I realized I’d forgotten to come up with a topic when I was off on wednesday.
It’s not that I feel obligated or anything, I absolutely love hosting my FCFs! And seeing who I can stump that week, trying to pick a fantasy creature that people might not have heard about before and that should be in books. And I like doing discussions too.
I’ve just… been having a massive case of “I don’t want to do it right now. I’ll do it later.” And then either forgetting I haven’t actually done it yet, or realizing it’s the night before (or occasionally the day of!) and I haven’t gotten the post written much less scheduled.
Do you guys ever get that moment of “later, after I do…” with your blog? How do you make it go away? Or how do you manage to get yourself to actually stop putting things off and do them on time?
