So, I’ve been having an unofficial “31 Days to A Better Blog” this month. I’ve been wanting to get away from posts that start with this, “I don’t know what to blog about today…” or “I’m too tired to write something funny…”. Which is basically 50% of my repertoire. So, I decided to actually WRITE all month long about REAL stuff. And to actually PLAN what I was going to write before I just word-vomit on the screen and hit publish.
Well, I think I’ve done pretty good for the first…uh, 7 days, of this month. But…well, I’ve got some writing gigs this month and just can’t focus on a great blog post today. I’m nothing if not faithful.
My Writing To Do List:
1. Write an amazingly overdue post for an amazingly wonderful blog, Chic Critique. Founded by my amazing bloggy friend, Jo-Lynne of Musings of a Housewife. I feel like the opposite of amazing when I think about how long it’s taken me to get this post to her. (Do you see why I can’t write something good for my blog when I can’t even come up with a synonym for “amazing”?!)
2. Write a skit for my mom. She started a new job as a Children’s Pastor. As her first big vision-dream-intro to the church, she’s doing a big skit/service/thingie. I’m writing it. So. It’s kinda important. And due this week.
3. Write a website for my hubby’s new business. He just started a new business with his dad. They are already selling and moving and shaking, but their website says, “Coming Soon”. Les is afraid they may lose business because of it. So, I’m writing their Welcome Page, About Us, FAQ, etc, etc. The problem is I have no idea what my husband does. So, it sounds like a 3rd grader wrote it.
4. Day 4-10 of my vacation blog. Oh my goodness. Can you believe I left it at day 3? I’m so embarrassed!
Well, that’s all the time I have for today. I’ll see tomorrow with something ASTONISHING, ASTOUNDING, SURPRISING, STUNNING, SHOCKING, STARTLING, STUPEFYING, BREATHTAKING, AWESOME, SENSATIONAL, REMARKABLE, SPECTACULAR, STUPENDOUS, PHENOMENAL, EXTRAORDINARY, INCREDIBLE and UNBELIEVABLE! (yeah, I just typed “amazing” into my thesaurus…)
