Two weeks ago, I decided to start the Daily Tidbits series and post every day. I think that was a good experience, but it’s time to bring that to a close. I quit (again).
What I Learned
These Daily Tidbits have been a good opportunity to try out many ideas quickly and push past perfectionism. I was able to practice finding images for posts, improving the readability of my posts, and learned a little about Search Engine Optimization. I learned how to write and set aside time for writing even when I’m busy and don’t feel like it.
Towards the end of this week, I was getting burnt out. I felt like some of the ideas I was writing about in Daily Tidbits deserved more attention than I was able to give in a short blog post. The Tidbits were actually getting in the way of my writing that involved deeper thinking. I didn’t have time to think deeply about posts anymore.
All of that is why I decided to run the survey and see what you (my readers) think. Everyone who has responded agrees that a once a week schedule would be better. I’m still going to be writing at least a paragraph every day, but I’ll only be posting once a week.
What To Expect
Going forward, I will post a longer-form Weekly Wandering post every Saturday evening. Since I’m still writing every day, this will allow me to develop my blog posts more. I hope this will provide more value to you. Thank you for the kind words and comments. See you on Saturday 🙂
A Question for You
Is there something you would be better off letting go of? Even if you told yourself you were going to do it?
