I just got back to Australia last week, and prior to coming back I made a promise to myself to be better at blogging in the moment.
So what is blogging in the moment? Well if we go on a weekend away to a cool new place, writing about it on the Sunday or Monday we get back. If we try a new restaurant worth sharing, uncover a new trend, or just have a random idea, to sit down and write. In the meantime I have created an editorial calendar full of post ideas so that if nothing sparks my creativity or life gets dull I still won’t run out of content.
With all of that in mind I came back to Australia ready to tackle day 1 of my editorial calendar…..
And then a week passed. Yes, it has been a full week since I arrived and so far my standard Friday Favorite post is the only new thing to grace this website since my arrival, so much for a plan and calendar to stick to huh?
In my defense Ben had an unexpected day off last Wednesday so we spent time shopping and getting things for the house. Thursday and Friday he was sick with a cold, while I suffered from jetlag (not as bad as the cold,) so there was lots of sleeping happening. We took the weekend off for a planned trip to the Tea Gardens just 45 minutes up the coast, and on Monday and Tuesday I got the same cold Ben had the week prior – a perk of living with your boyfriend I suppose.
I know I can blog from my bed, I could also unpack my suitcases that have somehow exploded all over the floor, but instead I laid around, watched just about every ice bucket challenge you could imagine on Facebook, and read a book. That’s what people who are sick are supposed to do right?
Laying around for the past week has me feeling all sorts of lazy, and throwing plans to the wayside makes me feel even worse. Despite my ever growing list of things I need to do that aren’t blogging related I feel most productive when I focus my time and energy into writing and cooking, so from this point forward that’s what I am going to do… and maybe a little laundry as well.
Consider this my first attempt at blogging in the moment.
