On Habit…

Pole position.

We’ve established that I spend an insane amount of time driving all over creation. And let’s face it, even though my pre-teen kiddos would gladly listen to the same 5 songs on repeat it drives me insane. Especially that Cher Lloyd song – I want you back (but not in a sweet-I-screwed-up-way, in a scary-I-thought-you-were-a-loser-until-someone-else-showed-interest).

So I decided that I had better things to listen to. Like podcasts. I went out and bought a mini speaker and car charger and now? I turn off the radio, they put in their headphones and I listen to what I want to listen to.

So, last week I was listening to the Paperclipping Roundtable and someone mentioned that blogging is a form of memory-keeping, which, hey! That’s something I like to do. And then went on to note that it’s a habit. And I was sort of sad, because so much has happened here, in my life, in the past couple of months. And none of it is really recorded anywhere.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I had just dropped the habit of blogging. I am still on the computer. I still scrapbook. I still scan Pinterest and Facebook and Twitter. But I hadn’t opened my blog in so very long.

And it wasn’t on purpose. It was just an accident. I got too busy.

And then when I had the time I was just out of the habit.

So, I am aiming to get the habit back – with a blog a day in October. One story, one post, every day next month. It may be short – a few sentences, or a longer string of words. But there’ll be a post every day (or close to it).

    I’ll try to do the same. Even though you’re the only one on the planet that has dropped out of the blogosphere. The only one.
