Not forcing it

In response to Mec and Master Retep's comments, it's true, I will not be blogging daily anymore. At the start I blogged every day partly because I had a lot to say. Back then I was sometimes tempted to blog twice or three times a day!

But also because I needed the discipline of daily posting to keep me blogging. I set myself a deadline of 6am posting, written the night before. And if missed the 6am time I could always post later in the day. And as I got into this blogging thing and realised the time and effort involved I was afraid to stop in case I'd give up blogging altogether.

For a few weeks now I have been planning to stop daily posting as soon as I hit 100. I felt it was a respectful number of blog posts to have before easing off. The main thing is I really don't want to throw up a post for the sake of it, or if life gets in the way have to stay up til stupid o'clock to write something. Or even worse force a post that doesn't want to be written, the processing part of blogging is to important.

At this point I trust myself to stop, miss a day here and there but not to lose the run of myself completely. I'm in too deep to stop, too addicted. So don't worry I still have a lot to say and I'll be posting very regularly. Stay with me!

I know what you mean. When I started blogging, I very specifically decided not to blog every day because I didn't want it to feel like a chore. As you can see from my post count, that decision has held, as I can be very sporadic. :-D

I will stay with you, allthough I understand you I am a bit sad

Of course we'll stay with you -I'm in no position to criticise, even if I don't usually let that get in the way of a good heckle.

Sounds sensible to me. I am glad you took this decision, I think 100 posts is plenty to get things off your chest & now you can use the blog as originally intended & keep the faithful you have built up.
