Four Months and a Shift

Last Friday marked four straight calendar months of blogging five days a week, Monday through Friday.

When I committed to a month of blogging back in April, I wasn’t sure I would be able to do it. I’ve been thrilled with each milestone I’ve reached. I’ve been amazed every time I stopped and tallied up just how long I’d kept up the daily blogging.

I’ve gotten much clearer on what I want to write about, the kinds of posts that are useful to you; that help you have less angst and take more action.

Time for another experiment.

While playing around with this past week’s Happy Changes for Happy Writing ideas, I noticed that blogging every day was feeling a little constricting in some way.

I have a couple of big projects I’m working on right now, things I’m really excited to share with you. I want to pull in a bit from the blog and use some of that energy to get these other things ready to share.

To do this, I’m going to try a new experiment, blogging three days a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

This change makes me a little nervous.

As I shared when I hit my one month goal, I’m really great at meeting challenges, through creating habits and routines that help me reach them. And, I’m a little worried that not posting each weekday will cause the habit to fall apart, that it will be too easy to put off posting once or twice, and before you know it, I’m back to my sporadic posting.

I really don’t think that’s going to happen, but it feels like a possibility. I’m hoping that sharing it, acknowledging the possibility, will help inoculate me against it happening.

It also seems important to say that part of me is sad about letting go of blogging every day. Of watching my chain grow and expand each day. I’m also a little curious if that aspect has taken on a little more importance that perhaps it warrants!

The daily writing will continue.

While I will only be posting here three times a week, I’ll continue writing every day over at 750 words. In fact, I’m hoping September is the month I finally get that turquoise horse!

So, once again, in the spirit of experimenting, I’m going to commit to this for the next two weeks and see how it goes, if I get the benefits I’m hoping for, retain the benefits I’ve been getting from my blogging schedule over the last four months. You know, just be curious and pay attention.

Of course, I’ll share with you what I discover. Whether the impact is as I expected or there are some surprises.

I’m so glad you’re hear, sharing this with me.

And, as always, let me know what you find most useful, ask the questions you’re dying to ask, share what shifts you’re making, the goals and dreams you have.
