Those of you who are regular readers of From Dancing to Running may have noticed a big change that has taken place on the blog over the past couple of weeks…
…I’m not posting five days a week right now.
That’s right, I’m going against my own blogging advice and not posting on a consistent basis right now. But when circumstances change, you need to go against your own guidelines. (You can read more of my blogging tips here, here, and here. And although I’m not following all of these to a T right now, I truly believe in all of these tips.)
This change isn’t because I don’t want to keep writing five days a week. Believe me, I love blogging, and its hard to imagine my life without blogging now. Rather, the realities of being late into the third trimester of my pregnancy have made for sheer exhaustion. In addition, with me not being as active as I’m used to being, I don’t feel as though I have as much to share. I’d rather share quality posts with all of you rather than just slapping together sloppy ideas and hitting “Publish.”
The reality also is that once the baby is born I know that my time will be even more occupied, and it’ll be harder to keep up with five posts per week. Sure, I’d love to make that my goal, and I’d love to say that I’m going to hit every single blogging goal that I set for myself earlier this year. But that’s just not realistic.
So instead, please bear with me as I work towards finding my new “normal,” not just in life but also here on the blog. I’m not sure what that new normal will be on here just yet, and it’ll probably take some trial and error to figure that all out. But I promise that I’m not forgetting about all of you, but as I’m sure you can imagine, priorities are shifting.
QOTD: When have you most recently had to face the reality of shifting priorities?
