A New Practice: Consistent Blogging

When it comes to the commitment of writing  blog posts regularly and consistently over the past few years, I could have worn this crown and declared myself a Queen.

But like the song “Royals” by Lorde says…

And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us,
we crave a different kind of buzz

I’m not really into being a punishing monarch (unless perhaps a monarch butterfly seeking the nectar of flowers… :-); instead, I chose the path of self-love and voluntary simplicity long ago.  Henry David Thoreau and the Sustainability Movement are strong and lasting influences. What does living a sustainable life look like to you? How do you fill your loving cup? Are you curious about voluntary simplicity?

Yet, if I were to crown myself, I’d prefer to be a Queen of Inspired Action Moved by Love!

Today I set an intention that I will write a blog post a minimum of once a week and will do my best to approach the task with inspired mental states and transparency.

Why? Because I’m a writer and artist at my core and walking a healing path.  On the path, I discovered that I’ve been hiding myself for most of my life and also hold a tendency toward procrastination when it comes to creative work. It’s now time to further  heal by honoring, revealing and sharing my VOICE (and my discoveries as they unfold) more consistently and authentically. This commitment, and the sense of completion that will result, will be very good for me and my work. Hopefully, this will be of use to you and others. Perhaps these posts will also further the Femme Fire mission to assist in the co-creation of a more just and sustainable world in peace. Onward Ho!

My few gripes come in the stat wholesale jerseys tracking system, and more so in the standings department.

    Feeling a great sense of admiration, love and appreciation for you, dear friend, Paxus Calta Star of Twin Oaks and Acorn Communities… and beyond in the farthest cosmic love dimensions.
    For my readers, Paxus consistently (almost daily!) writes a fun and informative blog about living in intentional communities and alternative culture here: http://funologist.org/2013/11/26/penthouse-and-basement/

    Yeah! more blogging. So here are my hints.

    1) Run a constant low level thread in your mind “what would be interesting about this circumstance which would make a good blog post” When you think of soemthing send yourself some type of message – write on your hand, text yourself, put it in the cloud somewhere.

    2) Create a queue of topics – separate blog ideas from full blog posts and keep a list of things you want to write about. Arguments are rich for materials, things that you see which can be made better, strongly held beliefs you see around you that are inspiring.

    3) Dont be seduced by long. Short blog post are not only acceptable, but often exactly what your reader wants.

    4) Dont be seduced by text only. What your readers may well want are interesting images from your life. I am starting a “commune snapshot” series once a month where i just put up a handful of pictures, somethings without even captions.

    5) Find an editor or guest authors. I got Judy from OKCupid, but when you make the blog bigger than yourself it starts to take a life of its own. You dont need it to be just your ego driven material. THere are lots of clever people you know – showcase them on your blog and it will draw traffic.

    6) Remember, it is only a blog. If you miss a week or three, that is fine, dont beat yourself up about it. At the point when you are getting 1000 hits every day, we can talk about monitorizing it and it being an income engine, but before that it is just a time expensive hobby and should be seen as such.
