How often do I blog? This afternoon, a new PR connection asked me how often I blog. Well, judging from the last post I published (nearly two weeks ago) — not that often.
Two or three times a week, typically, I told her. I didn’t tell her about the month of February, when I challenged myself to blog every day for 28 days and almost made it. I’ve had to let go of blogging lately. We are working to complete a redesign of weavinginfluence.com — so exciting. And, also — so much work!
My attempts to get more help in the business haven’t worked out as well as I’d hoped: one new crew member suffered a terrible tragedy, two team members missed work due to family losses, and I’ve been scrambling to get everything done. (If you haven’t noticed me scrambling… whew! Maybe I’m doing better than I thought.)
Blogging just doesn’t fit right now, but it is something I enjoy and something I hope to be back to on a regular basis. Soon.
How often do I run?
I run sporadically. In a perfect routine, I’d run more often than I blog, 4 times a week would be ideal.
But for many weeks running seemed like something that wasn’t fitting either.
A couple of weeks ago, though, I ran 5 miles as part of a relay team. And then, one of my team members challenged me to run every day for the month of May, even if only a mile. So it’s May 7th, and I’ve run every day this month so far. Yes, several days it’s only been a mile.
I am neither a consistent runner or blogger, apparently. But give me a challenge, and I’ll find a way to gut it out.
Tell me something! How often do you blog? How often do you run? What is your secret to maintaining a consistent schedule?
I am the founder/CEO of the Weaving Influence team, the author of Reach: Creating the Biggest Possible Audience for Your Message, Book, or Cause, and the host of the Book Marketing Action Podcast. I’m a wife and mom of three kids, and I enjoy running, reading, writing, coffee, and dark chocolate.
