I haven’t taken care of my blog lately. It has been neglected for too long. It’s not that I haven’t thought about it, because I have. Honestly. I’ve thought about blogging, not only once or twice, but many times over the past weeks.
It’s not that I haven’t had things to blog about. I could’ve blogged about the birthday cards I made for dads birthday. I made three (one for mum, one for my sister & one for myself). I could also have blogged about all the Christmas cards I’ve made. Or the gift certificate I got (and spent) at a craft store. Or about how my food project is going. I could also have blogged about the Amy Macdonald concert I went to with my cool friend Chantie while she was in Oslo. Or the spectacular Lady Gaga concert I went to a few weeks ago.
As you see, there has been lots of things to ‘write home’ about. But every time I’ve thought about blogging I’ve said to myself ‘tomorrow I’m gonna sit down and blog’. Every time I’ve failed.
November is soon here. It’s a new month. I can take that as a new beginning. I can start being good at blogging starting from the 1st of November. I can tell myself I have to blog once a week. I should make it a habbit to sit down sunday evening and blog.
It might sound a bit stupid, but some times I dream I had a kick-ass blog which was read by lots of people who I would interact with. I some times wish I was like Julie in Julie & Julia (if you’ve seen that movie). But if I ever should attempt at getting big, I sure need to update more often. Who follows a blog if you only post every third week?
Keeping a popular blog, doesn’t only require frequent updates, it also needs interesting posting. You need to focus on a few things and not write about everything that comes to mind. I think a themed based blog is nice. I try to be that. I don’t want to get too personal with my blog, it’s not like before, when I had a personal diary online. This is different and I like to keep it that way.
It’s not that I’m gonna try get big. I just want to post regularly. I love writing too much to not write often. And I like seeing the result of a written post.
Before my rant goes out of its proportion, I better stop.
Tomorrow I’m meeting up with a friend. She’s going to make something christmasy. I’m going to make some Christmas ornaments. Tonight I’ve searched online for different pattern I can use on the ornaments. The result of tomorrow is worth blogging about. If my ornaments doesn’t turn into a disaster that is.
I’ll keep you posted. Honestly! I will! Like a ex-colleague said once: ‘Don’t try do it, just do it!’.
