I have come to a difficult decision. After more than two and a half years of what can be called daily blogging, I am cutting back. With that, the subtitle of my blog is also changing. Instead of A DAY BY DAY JOURNAL OF ONE WOMAN LIVING THE RAW FOOD LIFESTYLE, it has become ONE WOMAN LIVING THE RAW FOOD LIFESTYLE. Maybe not perfectly but consistently.
My new schedule will be three topical posts a week with a personal post on Fridays. The daily blog was fine as long as it was all personal but I’m finding it’s difficult to write on a particular topic in an hour. I prefer to substitute quality for quantity.
Let me be completely honest. I’ve been getting burned out writing every night. My posts were beginning to be boring for me to create. I couldn’t imagine why anyone else would want to read them. It was the same endless round of when I went to bed, when I got up, whether or not I exercised, the food I ate (with quantities), my day and on and on ad nauseam. My daughter came to my rescue and suggested I change the way I blog and try to do more “how to” posts. I didn’t realize when I started just how hard it could be and, at the same time, rewarding.
There’s lots out there to write about. I have ideas. You have ideas. If there’s something you’d like me to address, tell me about it. My daughter has sent me ideas (and one, at least, could take days and days to research and write). I’ll do my best to turn this into a blog of substance while still maintaining the personal touch.
I’ve turned a corner. I’m looking into an exciting future of more raw food and a better blog!
