As many of you know I have not been blogging as regularly as I used to and as a previous post suggested, I have been a bit out of it lately. I have been trying to run at full steam 24/7 and it is impossible.
I accepted that I can only do so much and that there is no use worrying about things that I cannot do or get to. Once I allowed myself to calm down a bit I managed to come up with a few ideas for posts in the upcoming A-Z challenge. And yes, I was seriously freaking out but it is now a thing of the past.
I have not been writing either, but I did partake in a few awesome blogfests and I met a lot of very cool people. But I found that social networking, like most things that are fun, is very addictive. I was so worried about not stopping by every one's blog to leave a comment that in the end I drove myself absolutely crazy and the next day I had a total melt down at work, because everyone there was just adding to my already heavy load.
So, I came up with the easiest solution that is so simple it is ridiculous. I will only visit a few blogs a day. That way I can visit everyone at least once a week and that will be my strategy for the whole A-Z challenge as well. I know it is not the point of a blog hop or a blogfest but that is my only solution. I can honestly not stop by 30 blogs a day, everyday and manage to write. I am sorry if this plan offends anyone but that is what I have to do to stay sane.
Speaking of blogfests...I will also not be participating in any new blogfest for a while, aside for the A-Z challenge. I like taking part in blogfests but then I still get overwhelmed trying to read every one's entries in a limited amount of time. I have found myself only visiting 8 bloggers but getting 16 comments and in the end I feel like a jerk because I can't return the favor.
See! I over think everything. But that is my strategy. Good-luck with all the writing endeavors. Hope that inspiration is abundant for all.
