Each morning, as I slowly wake up and get my wits about me again I think, “Today, yes today is the day I’ll write that blog post”.
But then, a phone call comes in – ‘urgent work, we need this done yesterday’ or the email ‘can you send me this’ or something else and life gets in the way.
And that’s good. When I first started blogging it was because I had time to blog. I take the fact that I haven’t had time recently as a good sign for my business (& my bank account!). But still, I think it is important to find a balance – time to work in my business as well as on my business. And lately I’ve been neglecting the latter.
I set up mechanisms to make sure I did a blog post at least once a week. I created my #mrx reading list – my ‘weekly’ update of interesting things I’ve found to read. But, dear reader, I’m afraid to say that I’ve neglected that sorely. I could blame losing my Instapaper password, or just not having that much time to spend on twitter… But that’s no excuse. I (smugly) would judge bloggers that neglected their blog, ‘what’s the point of doing it if you can’t commit?’, I’d say to myself. Oh, how naïve I was! Well, now I know better! Sometimes life will get in the way. Sometimes inspiration is hard to come by. Hell, sometimes you plain just don’t feel like it!
But, today I will write a blog post. And not just these random musings – but a post that is actually #mrx related. I’ve a few topics on mind – but let’s see where inspiration strikes.
And I’ll try not to neglect you for so long next time!
