The July-August Transition

The first day of August is a couple hours away (where I live of course). And if that doesn’t scare you then you’ve probably already accomplished something this year. You have, haven’t you? But if you’re just realizing you have about 5 more months left in 2014 to make it memorable, don’t fret because there are others in the same boat as you. Like, for example, me.

Since it’s going to be a new month, I will strive to be a better blogger because once school starts, all bets are off.

Here’s what I hope to do in August to make up for my inadequacy as a blogger in September all the way to June…(Speaking of inadequacy, the title of my post is horrendous. Moving on…)

  • Leave at least one comment on somebody’s blog every day. It will most likely be someone I am following. If I’m not following you and you’re reading this, you have every right to yell at me.
  • Post at least once a day. I’ve done well in the past several months so I want to continue to blog daily. More importantly, what I post won’t be total gibberish or complete nonsense. I’ll try to make my posts meaningful or insightful. Possibly both. I’m open to suggestions as well. If there’s something you want me to cover that I haven’t already, I will gladly do so. Unless you ask me to write about cars.
  • The last goal may be the hardest one of all: Work on being funnier than I was the day before. Why? Because I’m going back to schoolβ€”entering grade 12β€”in September and I think I at least deserve one month where I can be stress free, relaxed, and happy.

Do I look like someone who breaks my promises? The correct answer is no. If I do, however, fail to meet one or all of the above, go ahead; report me to the blogging police for lying under oath.

If you love me more by the end of this, thank you. I love you too. If you hate this blog and still do by the end of August, that’s okay too. I’ll like you a little less.

Have an amazing day. If you’re reading this in August, happy August!

  1. I highly doubt I’d hate you by the end of it. Don’t think there’s much chance at all of that happening.
    Blogging police? Hmm…… I’ll have to keep an eye out for them. I’m such a goodie-two-shoes in real life, but once my fingers hit the keyboard… all bets are off! πŸ˜‰

  2. It’s great to set goals for yourself! I sometimes write posts a few days in advance, if that helps. Sometimes if l have an idea for a post l’ll write the idea down as a draft on WordPress so l remember then write it later. Needless to say, my draft bin is very cluttered…

    I’m looking forward to reading your blog for the rest of 2014 and beyond! πŸ™‚

    1. I’ve been trying to write posts in advance too. I feel my content is generally better when I do. Oh, don’t remind me. My draft bin is overflowing with weird ideas, unfinished posts, and random ramblings.

      Aw I appreciate it Rachel. The feeling is completely mutual. Keep blogging and writing. I’ll be reading. πŸ™‚

      1. The worst is when you add a draft and then forget about. Which, I hate to admit, I’ve done too many times to count. BUT they’re still in my draft bin just in case. πŸ˜‰

      2. Agreed. I have drafts from last year. I’ve been meaning to get around to them but I never do. :\ Anyhow I know that feeling. At least they’ll always be there. One day I’ll go back to them. πŸ™‚

      3. Me too, but lesson learned. Everything happens for a reason and I think the rewrite turned out better. So I’m going to pretend that’s why I wasn’t thinking that night. πŸ™‚
