I had a reckoning with myself this weekend. Somehow, I got under too much pressure…again. It wasn’t the blogging itself: it was doing it on a daily basis and having to struggle so much with the formatting. It takes me three times as long to put up the article as it does to write it. Unfortunately, I am a perfectionist and tend to want my article to look perfect. This is nothing new…ask news editors across the country and various publishers that I work with 🙂
Blogging has me hooked, but I don’t want to start to dislike it because of pressure, so I am sensibly scaling back to Post A Week instead of Post A Day. I will, in all likelihood, do more than one article a week–I am aiming at an article every other day.
Now here’s the good news. I have started another blog on WordPress, which you can see at News, Views, and Gurus. This has come about as part of a news-type longing I have. I have pretty much retired from active journalism, although I still write the odd one here and there. However, I am on the media list of PR people and get the most fascinating story ideas from them. I want to write up nearly all of them, but I currently don’t have an outlet for them; or I DIDN’T have. Now I do. This is going to be a very interesting blog with all sort of information from all over the world as well as our own backyards. Pop by, take a look and see some of the fascinating news, views, and gurus I come up with.
