I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. I’m a procrastiblogger. Somehow my regular procrastination habits have infiltrated into my blogging life as well. I’m so bad that it took 2 months to even start writing this post. So if you’re like me or if you haven’t realized it yet, I’m here to point it out to you.
1. A blogger who puts off posts until the last minute. OR: Crap, I didn’t write any posts for this week, blogger.
2. Flying by the seat of their pants blogger.
3. Oh darn, that review is due tomorrow, blogger.
1. Not a lot of scheduled posts
Do you hear crickets chirping in the background on your posts page? Or see tumbleweeds blow through? Always say, “I’ll write that post tomorrow.”? You might even forget that you were supposed to write anything. So yeah, I fell your pain. Seriously, there are days where I have no scheduled posts. I really don’t know how anyone can sit and write posts for months in advance. (Props to those bloggers who do).
2. You forget what a book was about because you didn’t write the review soon enough
Put off reviewing a book for long and you forget what it’s about. We’ve all been there. To be honest, us book bloggers have to stick to certain books schedules and sometimes we have to read books back to back in order to reach those goals. Sometimes plots start to blend together and it’s hard to distinguish what happened in which book.
3. You put off commenting back
Being the courteous blogger that you are, you do comment back. That being said, the time frame in which you comment back may be lacking. You get it done, but it takes a few days. When this happens, I’m not ignoring anyone, I’m just procrastiblogging.
4. Those blog upgrades that you wanted to do
Whether it’s tinkering around with a new theme, or the fact that you’ve been thinking about a new theme. Or you just want to update you’re current theme, but just keep putting it off. I’m guilty of this in one way or another. Now this does not include updating plugins because those need to be done as soon as the notification comes up. (At least I’m good at this).
5. Social media, what social media?
Normal people have their posts automatically post on social media. Not me.
My FB page is actually floundering because of this but not many people are active on FB pages anyway. I’ve not actually found any benefits to having a FB page. Twitter is a little better. But I don’t interact as much as I should. I always say that this is the day to start, but nope. I’m hopeless with this.
Do these resonate with you? Are there any procrastiblogging habits that you can add?
