I realized that I’m doing this blogging thing all wrong. I’ve been writing each post, one at a time, as I go. I’ve been so busy with my jobs lately that I haven’t been posting as much as I’d like. I didn’t get that trampoline park job, so I won’t be adding to the busyness by taking on a third job.
I have no schedule, no advance posts. I do have about 34 drafts with only titles for future topic ideas. I recently discovered that I can set dates/times for posts to be published. I need to set a few hours aside to write advance posts and schedule when they’ll be published. This seems so much easier than what I’ve been doing!
Fellow bloggers, do you write/publish on a whim or do you plan out your posts? Any tips welcome!
Hubby’s deployment was cancelled. While I’m happy about that, we had a bit of an argument about sharing the car. He wasn’t willing to spend a few extra hours on the ship once or twice a week so I could work an hour or two later than his normal pick up time. He was, however, willing to sacrifice a couple hours if he had a $2,500 gaming laptop which he purchased with a new credit card he opened. Originally the card was to be used to build his credit. He would only use it for budgeted items that we could pay off right away and utilize the rewards program. Not thrilled at all. We won’t be able to pay ahead on the car loan now. I really hope my husband is willing to cut his spending on dining out, energy drink consumption and junk food so we can pay this down as quickly as possible. I’ll probably throw our whole $380 savings (EF) at this card now, joy. My paychecks will likely go mostly towards paying off these stupid credit cards instead of all to my student loans. Grr!
