I’m a little worried that I’m not blogging correctly. You see, I’ve read a number of posts from other bloggers recently who have talked about all of the posts they have in their draft folder. Or who have said something like, “I’m going to be away from home [or busy with work] for the next few days so I’ve scheduled a bunch of posts to publish in my absence.”
Do you know how many posts are in my draft folder? Zero, nada, zilch. And that makes me worry that I’m an inefficient blogger.
Starting this coming Sunday, I’m going to be participating in this thing called the “A to Z Challenge. ” You write 26 posts for the 26 days that are not Sundays (except for the first Sunday, which is April 1st) during the month of April. Your 26 posts start with the letter A and end with the letter Z. It seems that hundreds of other bloggers will be participating in this challenge, as well.
I mention this because I’ve read some posts of others who will be doing this challenge and quite a few have given a progress report on how many posts for that challenge they’ve already written; posts that are just sitting “in the can” waiting for the applicable day to arrive.
Do you know how many posts I’ve prepared in advance for that A to Z challenge? Zero, nada, zilch.
And many of these other bloggers have chosen themes for the entire month of challenge posts. I have no theme selected because I have no idea what I plan to post about each letter each day.
I like to think that the way I don’t plan ahead makes me a master of spontaneity. But some may say I’m just scatterbrained.
Or maybe I’m just inefficient.
Written for today’s one-word prompt, “inefficient.”
