I was wondering how to handle doing a post every day. I know I could not cope well with doing knitting to be paid for by someone. It would put me under pressure to get it done. I don't usually join swaps or KAL's for the same reason. I don't mind doing the work and it will often be done well and quickly but I don't want to "have" to do it to fit in with someone else's rules or expectations. I remember refusing to join groups which said members pledged to lose xxx kilos by Christmas or whatever. Not for me.
However, I seem to have found a system. I'm still writing practically every day but I've taken the pressure off myself. In my drafts folder are a couple of posts with ideas for future postings. There are also a few lists around the blogosphere with similar ideas. Not only do I have some suggestions lined up for when the well of inspiration runs dry, but I also have posts written in advance and set to automatically publish at a later date. As I said, I'm still doing stuff daily, but have a backstop in place in case something happens and I can't do one on a particular day
I have to be careful here. I can't talk about today's weather or whatever and then publish the post, setting it a week or ten days ahead when things may be entirely different. So I'm feeling more confident about posting every day in October.
