I was thinking about why I don’t blog every day anymore. I would like to, it just slips my mind. I think it comes down to routine.
When I started my blog, I was only a few days removed from leaving for Olympic. I didn’t have time to settle into a routine. Once I was there, I developed a daily routine that revolved somewhat around blogging. I went to work in the morning, did whatever until 9 PM, and went into the common room to write my blog between 9 and 10 PM.
Now that I’m home, I don’t have a routine nearly that consistent. I’ll be in bed anywhere between 10 PM and 2 AM. I think this is why I rarely even remember to write my blog. I got used to writing at a certain time in a certain place after doing certain things. Now that I’m removed from all of that, the thought of writing a blog entry rarely occurs to me.
What I’ll try to do is write my posts throughout the day, instead of aiming to write them at night like I did in the past. Hopefully, switching around the times I write will kick my brain out of routine mode. I’d like to establish my daily blog again before Praxis officially starts, so I’m hoping this has good results. I’m pretty sure it will.
