Blogging In the Rain

Real Estate Agent with Remax First Realty II 0790808

Peanut does not like the rain. I've seen her wait 14, 15, even 16 hours to go in the yard if it's raining out. Even a little drizzling dissuades her from stepping foot outside, and today's nonstop deluge is definitely enough to keep her sleeping on the couch.

But the sound of the leash? Oh, for that she'll bounce off the couch and wag her entire body for an opportunity to go for a w-a-l-k (we never say the word out loud). For the right motivation (a w-a-l-k), she'll do ANYthing!

I feel the same way about blogging. I like it, I see the business benefit from it, but I'd rather sleep on the couch. But, when the right motivation hits, I'm all in. The trick is, I don't seem to be able to tap into the right motivation these days. Which explains, for you regular readers, why this blog only appears sporadically.

So how do I get that motivation to keep going? What do you do to get yourself off the couch on days like this?

Wayne and Jean Marie,

Like the Nike slogan says, "Just do it".  It is now a habit for me, like brushing teeth twice a day.  What a great looking dog.  A

There have been times when blogging has been habitual, but, right now, it's barely an afterthought. I'm sure it has a relationship to the rest of the crazy out there.

Hi Wayne and Jean- like Ron and Alexandra Seigel I just do it!  I made a commitment to myself many years ago to post daily and never stopped.

You are an inspiration! It keeps moving lower on my priorities list.

I can't answer your question about motivation because mine wanes often. I go in spurts; three posts in a few days, then none for a week, then maybe another. So I'm right there with you!

Exactly. When the mood hits, I'm usually good for 2-3 posts. When the muse is evasive, however, so am I :)
