On my first post last January 7, I made a checklist about my blogging goals for this year:
I clearly violated my 3rd goal of finishing my drafts because of leaving a lot of them last month.I think these are the reasons why I suddenly stopped and what should be done to keep me back on my writing momentum:
My mistakes and what should be done
Lack of focus Focus on writing
Too much distractions Set aside distractions
Multitasking No multitasking
Not finishing my drafts Finish my drafts
I reckon I need to practice a lot of paradoxical intentions. Looking back, I think I need to add more items for my blogging checklist for this month. And because I’m working 5 days a week, I need to adjust the goals according to my free time:
March 2011 Goals
1. Write one post a week at most and at least one post a month.
2. Write about a particular theme or category every month (e.g. book review, writing, etc)
3. Practice freewriting for ten minutes at least twice a week.
Pondering about what happened for the past two months, I think I should be more confident of my next posts. My drafts are practice entries but I should compromise more on posting them regularly. Now I’m back on track with my blogging journey.
Hey Allen…goos to see ur post [ Finally 🙂 ]
Don’t put too much pressure on urself Bro…I had started blogging in 2009..In the first 2 years i guess I wrote about 40 posts…now in Last 2 months I have written about 80 posts…I’m sure ur time will come when u wud get into ur groove…now it is so effortless…no planning is required..jus daily observations cant be turned into a post..

Will look for ur posts..
aliw naman at may ganito pa. talagang goal-oriented, ahaha. sabagay, may times na maraming ideas at merong parang walang maisip, ano? ^^
hmmn… what i do, lapis pa rin usually ang gamit ko sa pagsusulat. i write it down muna, kahit saka na i-type and i-edit. that way, pag may idea, di agad nakakalipad. mabilis lang ako usually magsulat (dahil sanay na, haha). usually, 3, 5 and 7 minutes, tapos na.
pero mabagal ako sa typing, hihi. at mas matagal sa editing, fact-checking and finding pics, haha. something i wrote for five mins may take 5 hours of editing. mga three sittings, bago matapos. yown…
have a happy weekend ahead! regards… 🙂
Haha! Bagito pa ako sa blogging neto. Pero pagkatapos naman ng isang taon dito, bahala na si Batman. Basta magsusulat lang ako. Di ko na iintindihin masyado yung quality or quantity ng posts ko. Haha! Happy weekened rin SSA.
