2013 is the year of Better. In my New Year’s Resolution post I told you about how I need to stick with the things I’m already doing, but do them better. That includes being a better blogger.
I approach blogging like I do everything else in my life, I fly by the seat of my pants. I am driven by whims and emotional outburst, creativity that most often strikes when I’m in the shower or falling asleep, and last minute ideas that are underdeveloped.
Unfortunately, this means that my best ideas and stories never make it to my blog. P-L-A-N is a four letter word; therefore, I never use it.
I’ve decided a little organization may not kill me. It might even make this a better blog.
I know, shocking revelations on The Domestic Fringe. What will I say next? I’m going to organize my laundry room?? Heaven forbid.
Aside from the overflowing basket of clean clothes that has been on my kitchen island for three days (Ya, I’m not making that up.), I’m taking steps to organize my life and live better.
Right now I’m working on my blog. I downloaded a free printable blogging calendar from Elisa Pulliam and I am using it. If you want, you can print your copy here.
I can’t promise I’ll be able to plan more than a week or two out, but it’s all about baby steps. My goal is to eventually plan one month at a time. This way I’ll know the direction I am heading and I’ll be able to work towards that goal without distraction. At least, that’s the plan.
I know me, so if I get one to two weeks planned at a time, it will be a major accomplishment.
This is how I am blogging better in 2013.
