Thanks to scheduling posts, blogging stress levels diminished. Unfortunately, I dropped the ball last week. When writing my blog, I didn't have all the information needed for the Friday Round-Up. I reasoned, "I can do it throughout the week." As it often does, life happened. Good things, not so good things, unexpected things all crowded in, and the post went right out of my head. When I tried to pick up the stitch on Friday at 11:00 A.M., the one link I had refused to work.
As a writer, I'm learning the importance of consistency. Blogging three times a week for the last 11 months provided discipline and a sense of satisfaction. So, has my blog been ruined because I missed a post? Of course not, but I do have to get back on track and re-establish my normal patterns.
Have you ever missed a post? How did you handle it?
