The best plans often go awry. My plans to post a blog every day, for example. I start with the best of intentions, but then I go on a trip and off the net, attend family gatherings, come down with illness, or fall into emotional chaos. Looking ahead, I see the December calendar, complete with back to back social engagements, including a couple of travel days, and holidays.
While I agonize over the difficulties of posting once a day, several people post more than once a day. Multiple posts may be a picture, or a quotation, a three or four line poem, a re-blog of another person, or even a re-blog of their own work. No reason the rest of us can’t use these same techniques, at least to fill in during times we are crunched for time.
So I now construct a plan for December! I am so excited to share this plan with you. Feel free to use this plan as your own.
- Spread the love by sharing the blogs of others. So many talented people, and I’d hate for you to miss amazing bloggers. I would be delighted to introduce readers of my blog, to the blogs I love. If you have a blog you would like me to share, just let me know. I’ll do it as my Christmas gift to you, no charge.
- Re-blog favorite blogs from the past. I have been reading my old blogs, and I have many new readers. This sounds like a win/win to me.
- Post a holiday picture. Happy Holidays. Our own holiday pictures are totally free to share. Paired with a short poem, it’s a perfect post.
- Share a quote or season greetings.
Okay. That is my plan. There is one other thing I need to do for this plan to be successful. I need to plan ahead.
