In the closing “remarks” of the Zero to Hero challenge (no sense linking back to that page now) the author(s) mentioned that those of us who participated might think of establishing a posting goal for ourselves. I like that idea. I thought long and hard about this. OK, actually I gave this almost no thought at all. Regardless, I have decided that, although I may still post on a regular basis — even daily in many cases — my ultimate goal is going to be posting at least once a week. So, I’m setting a reminder on my phone. If I get to Thursday night at around 11PM CT and I haven’t posted anything for the week; then I shall post a story. I might take it from the Daily Post’s prompt for the day; but I’m going to post something.
Have any of you thought of setting a similar goal? I think this one is realistic for me. As I have mentioned before, I went from July -December 2010 with around 30 posts. For all of 2011 I posted nearly every day. In 2012 I did post every day. In 2013 I fell off the wagon a bit and got seriously depressed about it. I almost even swore off blogging for good. So with all of that in mind I think I can swing posting just once a week.
Now before I get crazy and start running away from my own goal I would also love to link to other blogs and even host my own link-in like my good friend at Perfection Pending does every Monday. Shout out to her since she graciously posted a piece of mine recently. That’s where I got the idea. Coincidentally, it looks like the weekly feature thing is leaning towards something specifically about the kiddos. That shouldn’t be too hard. I just a name for it. How about Harvey’s Kittens Thursday’s, or Offspring Tuesday’s, or my favorite Journey of a Sperm Five Years On? I suppose that one would have to be more biological in nature. We shall see.
