I was discussing the other night with my husband about the need to set aside some time to write up my blog posts. His reaction to that astounded me.
Yep, my face was something like that.
His thoughts were that a blog post should take no more than a few minutes, 10-15 at most to construct and send out into the world. This appalled me, it shocked me, it made me question if I was doing this right or not.
My posts, depending on what they’re about can take me anywhere from 15 minutes to a few hours if I’m not sure about the photos I want to use, or I need to do some research or I want to link back to a whole bunch of sites. Also, one of the things I tend to do is when I get an idea I’ll start a blog post and save it as a draft with the idea in it, to flesh it out later when I have the time to put into it, so that post could take me days or weeks to complete! I stockpile interesting or strange photos in my media library while I’m searching for specific photos. I constantly scour the internet pages I frequent hoping to walloped over the head with inspiration or see a topic that brings forth strong emotion in me.
My dear blog followers… I can’t be the only one that agonises over my word choice, primps and primes my post repeatedly (much like the 52 outfit changes a woman goes through before a first date) and otherwise exudes various other OCD tendancies?
Do you do the same? Am I strange (well, stranger than normal) in this blogosphere? How long does it take you to come up with a blog post and release it to the world?
