I used to post every Monday.
Then I switched to Wednesdays.
Sundays were open for the occasional Thought Bubble.
Pfft. Occasional. That’s funny.
Point is, I had a schedule. It cut down on the stress of blogging. (Anyone who blogs, no matter how much they love it, knows there’s a certain amount of stress that goes with the blogging territory.)
You have a day or two or whatever and that is when you post.
Your readers know when to expect you. It’s what you’re supposed to do…
But that’s not why I did it. I had specific days I posted because it fit in nicely with my schedule OCD. I liked it.
But I don’t have a prompt or a series.
If something interesting happens in my life, I write about it. Sometimes, when the scheduled day comes along to publish, it’s not relevant anymore. So it sits here. Wasted words. Such a shame.
What if…? No…
What if I posted whenever I felt like it? *gasp* Besides potentially annoying readers, what harm could it do?
I decided the answer was “none”.
So, at least for now, I’m posting whatever day I decide to write and hit ‘publish’.
Watch out. The Lemon Shark is going to show up when you least expect it.
Writing that just made me feel queasy. Also… free.
My Sunday thoughts in 200 words or less.
When do you post? Do you post whenever you feel like it? Do you have certain days? Do you ever deviate from your schedule?
