VJWC Shift Response

I decided to shift my blogging practices this week, and it turned out to be just the remedy I needed to reduce stress and increase my readership.  Who knew?

I had read all those blogs about how important timing is for posting, and that consistency is key.  So I have tried to set my posts for early morning, and then would be faced with a slew of emails when I woke up. Stressed to respond to them all, I found I seldom could catch up enough to allow me to participate in daily prompts.

Alternating posting times not only meant that I could manage the incoming emails easier, it also gave me space to join in the daily challenges.

In addition, I gained new followers – four on the first day, when I posted a 2:00 p.m. instead of 6:00 a.m.  Which, in hindsight, only makes sense, given we are a global community.

Breaking out of our ruts, sometimes just takes a small shift.

How did you make out?

(VJWC first challenge is shift.  Check in Monday for the next challenge.  Hope you’ll join us.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
