Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with a fun new blog post in my Get To Know Me series! My first post was about my Weird Reading Habits and today I’m talking about my Blogging Habits!
1 ALWAYS CHECKING MY BLOG!
One of the first things I do when I wake up if check my blog. So, I don’t know if this is more of a weird obsession or just plain unhealthy, but it’s part of my routine now and it never fails to get me in high spirits when I see a bunch of new comments from you guys!
2 SCHEDULING TOO FAR AHEAD
I legitimately have a scheduling problem. I so often hear bloggers who have issues with never scheduling posts but I have the opposite issue – I legit schedule posts 2 yrs ahead! I currently have posts scheduled for 2020 and I bet in a few months time I’ll have some ideas for 2021!
3 I NEED DISTRACTIONS
I have to be doing something else when I’m writing a blog post. I’m Literally watching Jumanji 2 in the background as I write this one, though usually, I’m just listening to an audiobook while I write. I can’t write without something on in the background so either I’m writing in the living room with the general family chaos in the background or I’ll have a movie or book on in the background!
4 I HAVE NO SET “WRITING TIME”
I either won’t write any blog posts for at least a week or I’ll write myself into a vegetive-stressed state that lasts for like, 3 days straight. There is no in-between.
5 I CAN’T WRITE IN THE MORNING!
Also, speaking of weird writing habits – I never write in the morning. It’s either periodically throughout the day or it’s late at night – I just can’t write in the morning, you know?
6 MY BLOG SCHEDULE
This builds on my second point, but I schedule all of my posts in advance in order to make sure that they’ll go up, so finished or not you’re getting a blog post every Mon, Wed, Fri.
7 I’M A TAD OBSESSIVE!
I am obsessive about my blogging schedule. I literally cannot stand missing a day, it stresses me out for my monthly overview to not look like this every month and maybe I need to loosen up about that but anxiety has its grip on me and I kind of can’t help it.
8 I’M TERRIBLE AT SOCIAL MEDIA
You’d think that as a blogger I’d be super comfortable with social media but no, I rarely use Instagram and I don’t usually post about books when I use it. I’m slack on Twitter and I only really use Goodreads for reading updates. I feel so bad about this but at the same time, social media is exhausting and I know I’m terrible at it anyway!
9 TERRIBLE WITH IDEAS
I have folders and folders of brainstorm sessions/ideas across most of my devices but, I never look at them. I have literally 70-100 ideas waiting for me to take advantage but I never do because unless I think of them and add them to my schedule asap they never get used! One day I’m just going to have to get super tech savy and plan a whole year’s worth of ideas because that’s probably how many I have saved up all across my devices/notebooks!
10 BLOGGING AT THE WORST OF TIMES!
Speaking of my idea problems, I get a lot of my ideas during class and therefore most of my notebooks are full of long discussions and intros and new ideas instead of actual class notes. I mean, last year I wrote most of my Crimes of Grindelwald review just in class, and then left my lecture with very few actual notes on whatever we’d just “learnt”.
