Today I realized that I have two problems when it comes to blogging.
One is procrastination. When I have a few minutes to sit and blog, I think, “I’ll develop that idea later, when I have more time to really devote some energy to it.” The truth is, whenever I do get around to sitting down to “develop that idea,” I can’t remember what it was in the first place.
The other: exhaustion. I am now almost 3 months pregnant (yes, that’s the formal blog announcement), with a very active two-year-old and two elementary-aged homeschoolers at home with me all day. Last time I was pregnant, I blamed the exhaustion on working a demanding full-time job outside the home. I was on my feet all day and was completely worn out when I got home. Now, I don’t have that excuse. My jobs as mom, homeschooler, and photographer are just as exhausting, and I have a chance to actually SIT during the day. I’m afraid I have to admit that the exhaustion may be the fault of age, and not activity level.
So, how do I solve these problems so I can meet my NaBloPoMo goal? I’m just going to have to schedule writing time in the mornings again, in between my quiet time/Bible study and getting the kids started for the day. I also need to get back into the habit of jotting down post ideas and outlines whenever I think of them, instead of believing that I will still remember when I have the chance to sit down at the computer.
