I have a hard believing that I have been posting almost every night for twenty-seven days for NaBloPoMo (I admit I have missed two, or possibly three). This is the most frequent posting I have ever attempted, and it really hasn't been easy. Getting the time in each day has been a challenge, and usually, I end up in front of my computer, late at night, trying to hit the "Publish" button before the clock turns over to twelve o'clock am on the following day. And I succeed... about half of the time, the rest are posted a few minutes late. To my fellow NaBloPoMo-ers, how do you work this event into your day?
Admittedly, I am starting to enjoy the frequency and find it a nice way to wrap up my day. Sort out all the thoughts and happenings and how I want to think about things is the main point of repeatedly sitting in front of this computer. I have finally decided that an earlier attempt during the day can be very beneficial. (and I have yet to start that practice).
Overall, posting this often is like learning to drive a car. You do not just go out for one lesson at two o'clock pm during the daylight and then finish all other lessons at nine o'clock pm in the dark. Your attention span, observational skills, and sight will all be impaired just a little due to how tired you are. As are my blog posts; they're short, not as well-written, and rushed to meet the deadline. After this month is done, I know I will need to focus on a plan for blogging at a rate (and time of day) more reasonable for my lifestyle.
I'll leave you with a running quote that so applies to this subject:
to all, have a good night, and happy running! ~Alaina
