I don’t know why this keeps happening

I had grand plans to have blog posts written and published on our April Bend trip by May … Well, I have one published so far. It’s the thought that counts, right?

I also had lots more to say about our Oregon Coast trip in December!

And, who remembers New Zealand from 2019?

I have lots of unfinished drafts saved here. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start (or restart), especially when I’m trying to write about something from six months — or even three years — ago! I end up scrolling through my camera roll on my phone to see the order of events on a particular day or excursion I want to write about. Or, if I am feeling really motivated, I’ll go back to my journal(s) to see what I wrote about in “real time.” (Of course I end up being out of luck if I was “too tired” to scribble even one note or thought on the day I am trying to now write about.)

It would be easy to say, “I’m a parent of a baby! I have no time now!” But, we all know this type of blogging behavior was happening prior to me being a parent.

I know lots of people keep content calendars for their blog to stay on track. I don’t really want to do that because then it starts feeling like “work.” I don’t want my blog to feel like work. But, maybe I should work a little harder at it so this doesn’t keep happening.

Thoughts/advice/recommendations welcome.

Otherwise, stay tuned for a “real” blog post, um, soon.
