Writing Goals

Now that I'm a stay-at-home mom (or mom-to-be), I really need to get into the habit of writing daily. To do this, I've created some drafts of entries with random topics. When I have nothing better to discuss, I will post one of these topics so that I have something to post each day.

Set a goal and a plan on how to get there.

It's ironic how this topic came about. I found 50 blog ideas I would like to write about and put them in a list in a Google document. I used random.org to generate some numbers for me. I went to the Google document and added numbered drafts in my blog for when I don't really feel I have much to write about. This was the first topic chosen and is super easy to write about today.

This is because yesterday was my last day of gainful employment. Starting today, I am preparing to be a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) when my first child is born in the next five weeks or so. When my husband and I discussed me being a SAHM, he didn't want me to get burned out and wanted me to have a goal. This goal was to get my public blog active again. In order to do this, I know I need to write more.

Therefore, I have set a goal to publish a post every day in the remainder of June. Some posts will be random blog topics with the little disclaimer at the top like this one. Others will be posts that I am purposely writing because I feel like I have something important to discuss.

It's hard to come up with blog entries that require much brain power these days due to baby brain. I also realize that, once baby is born, baby brain transforms into mom brain and doesn't get much better. That being said, I have already pre-started 15 blog entries with various topics so, at minimum, something should be posted each day.

If, by chance, I go several days without posting, you can probably assume baby decided to come early. So, there's that. :)
