I have been all over the place with this blog, and to be perfectly honest it is feeling like a chore now. I thought I would enjoy it when I had a schedule and writing about my goals from the week however that seems to stifle me. Writing has never really been one of my main focuses in life. I just like the idea of having a little place on the web to voice whatever is on my mind.
I haven’t decided yet if I am keeping this blog or deleting it. I am completing my tasks and goals however having the pressure of writing about them makes me procrastinate from writing about them. I was so eager to begin 1 1/2 years ago but that’s just me, I like to begin new things and to stop when I’m getting bored. This is not the first time I’ve started a blog with good intentions of keeping up with it. One year I decided I wanted to take a photo everyday for a year and blog about it, another time I thought it would be funny to make a new blog about the
funny stupid quotes I say. You can guess how these turned out after a month. I think the only blog I’ve been somewhat consistant with is my Tumblr but I don’t even go on that anymore. (Don’t judge me! I needed a place to feul my teenage angst and fangirl over Lady Gaga!)
Is this goodbye? I might be back with a different blog at some point, however it will have to be when I feel invested in what I am writing about. (Maybe I should write about Lady Gaga)
Everything I was grateful for last week. I scanned the image this time. Much better!
The harvestman war is over. …For now.
A little hand drawn illustration of what I was grateful for last week. Only 3 but I am aiming for 7 this week! This picture was taken on my phone. It’s a bit dark for a drawing that uses bright colours. I might scan the artwork into the computer next time.
I am in a cold war with a creepy-crawly right now.
Looking through my old posts, I feel like this is just regurgitated whinging.
I still don’t know what I want to do with this blog. I made a schedule but I’m not sure I want to partake. Originally, I wanted this blog to be a place where I could easily see all the goals I wanted to achieve for the year. I thought it would be encouraging for accountability too. But accountability it seems, does not motivate me and I
slowly quickly lost interest in writing.
What is the ultimate goal? This same question mirrors my life. I have no clue. I know what I want to do now, but not 5-10 years time. My tastes change far too often. I do envy people who have a set goal and go for it.
Maybe I should stick to the schedule and see what happens? And if it really is becoming a chore, I might have to say goodbye (if I cannæ think of anything to write about).
Well my goals for the next month are to do regular housekeeping (a full clean monthly and light clean weekly), budget for the month (which I’ve already done), blog regularly (LOL), do daily gratitude and to start exercising/being more active (I swear I was a sloth in a previous life).
Not too bad. The worst one is the exercise. I was quite active as a child but then as I got older I just got more sedentary. I think that’s somewhat the same for the majority.
By the way: the schedule I have is a monthly goals post, weekly round-up and a weekly gratitude post which may be illustrated. That’s all the posts I can think of doing right now. We’ll see how this goes!
I have finally built up the courage to open a shop on Society 6! www.society6.com/gem4000
Just some of the things you can buy on Society6. This is my first design :3
I only have one design on there right now but I am planning on uploading new designs soon! My art style is cute and simple. I do have ideas for more complicated designs but let’s keep it simple for now.
Please check it out and give feedback or any tips as I navigate this new marketing and creative venture.
