Last year I made one of my goals to block out time each week to blog about project updates, new & upcoming work, etc. I’d say (without going back and looking), I ended up doing the reflections on a monthly basis rather than weekly. But even as 2012 came to an end, my posts were getting more and more distant. Aside from the post I did about 2 weeks ago, I don’t think I’ve done any serious blogging since 2012.
It’s not that I don’t want to. In fact, I would love to blog 2-3x each week. It’s not that I’m too busy at work, in fact, I’m sure I could carve out enough time to do the aforementioned 2-3 blog posts per week. It’s seriously a lack of motivation. I just don’t have the drive to do it. I know that personal reflection and critical thinking are great forms of professional development, but that doesn’t make it any easier for me to set aside the necessary time.
Needless to say, I’m back in a rut. A blogging rut. And I just don’t know what to do about it.
Are you a professional blogger, or even someone who has their own blog site? How do you keep up with blogging on a set schedule? What type of accountability helps you?
