I haven’t been writing lately. That’s been very obvious, no writing=no posts.
By way of explanation, 99.9% of my writing these past few years has been for my blogs. For public consumption. And trying to find a routine to write and plan what I want to say has been difficult, especially on a work schedule that shifts every week.
And I’ve been working on my personal development, primarily my photography and my people skills. I’ve been going out more often, going to the local bar, where there is a hubbub of musical activity. If the finances and time were no object, I could be at the bar most nights of the week, snapping pictures of the different musical events.
I’ve been quite happy with the progress I’ve been seeing with my photography. I’ve read a lot online, and once I read something, I’m striving to put it to practice. And trying to become more comfortable with my equipment has been a goal.
So don’t mind me with extended absences from posting. I am usually quite busy. And I also don’t want to overwhelm you, my friends, with my passions. I know that I need to be more strategic about what I write, when I write and whom I share said writing with.
Being consistent in my writing means developing a strategy for my blog. Establishing a timeframe and goals for topics and discussion. And learning to create my own routine, incorporating my varied work schedule into a daily, weekly consistency that provides balance between work and personal, public and private.
What keeps you busy?
