Half-baked ideas; keeping a schedule.

I still feel ill, but my head is swimming with ideas for new posts.  The trouble is, I have so many half-formed ideas and simply don’t have the energy right now to develop one of those ideas  into something that wouldn’t sound half-baked.  All the cold medication is making me groggy and all I really want to do is sleep off this bug.

As this blog has grown, I’ve noticed that adhering to a kind of schedule does help keep me organized.  So far, I have Monday Melodies and the Sunday guest posts.  I’m thinking of having blog parties every other Saturday (too much work to do one every week).  I don’t want to become too regimented because then blogging would lose its spontaneity which is part of why it’s so fun, but I think I will have certain days where I’ll have specific topics.

    I tried doing the ‘specific-topic-specific-day’ thing and I had trouble doing it between work and family. Now I just try to post daily.

    I tend to read posts first before I post. Many a time inspiration struck after reading someone else’s blog.

    I really like what you are doing and how you are doing it. We grow into things as we do them,but I’d add that you get to drive the blog it doesn’t have to drive you. Sometimes when something is taking off we think we have to do more and make it ” more” rather than trust that how we show up, when we can show up is enough! You point to other really good resources which I’ve found invaluable too so between what you do and what you share I’m barely keeping up but as I do its transformative and helpful.
