I Have a Confession

JustRach Two Blog Posts Daily July

Wahhh! Almost a week since my last post. Time really flies these days!

I need to make a confession. I have a dirty little secret.

I need to hold my hands up in the air and await my arrest by the blogger police. 

I have a backlog. A scary, scary, mountainous backlog of posts, review items and blog commitments - and it is STRESSING ME OUT!

So, I've set myself a challenge for the rest of the month of July. Two blog posts a day until my mountain becomes a mole hill. Consider it a bit like a beauty blogger shopping the stash, or a fashion blogger on a spending ban.

I will schedule the posts in - one at 1pm, one at 5pm every day. It's going to take a lot of hard work and dedication, I know, but I think I can do it.

I need your help to get me through it though because I couldn't do any of this without you. I need YOU to keep me on track. Encourage me on twitter, facebook, comments. Do not let me slip back down the horrible steep slope into the big hole I've dug myself into!

Let the challenge begin... see you at 5pm :)

I'd love your comments and thoughts below, or: @justrachblog // justrachblog@gmail.com

    1. Thank you! I've got a lot of the content/photos prepared already, I just haven't found the time to put it all together and publish it! x

  4. Wow! Two post a day is a big commitment, but it's no fun at all when you've got a big back log and that 'fun blog' becomes a chore (I've been there!) - good luck!

    1. Thank you Erin. It does feel like a bit of a chore at the minute, although mostly I just feel bad about all the PR companies I'm letting down. There's only so many times you can email saying it will be ready next week! X

  5. Good luck with your challenge! Not sure I could cope with posting that much, but I have such a backlog at the moment too.

    1. Thanks Dannii! I usually post once a day anyway so it's not a huge difference. I've just got a to-do list the length of my arm and back again! X

  6. Don't get stressed out by your blog, you will lose all the fun. Try do a few a week, than a few a day :) Quality is better than quantity. xxxx

    1. Thanks for the comment Jessica. I definitely won't be scrimping on quality just because I'm posting 2 a day :) A few a week wouldn't work, since I typically post once a day and I'm not catching up that way I have to try something else!

      I have a lot of the photos ready and some of the content even so it shouldn't be too bad. My list of things I should have reviewed/posted is literally 2 sides of A4, so I have to get through it all somehow! xxx

  7. I have about 30 drafts of posts that I had intended to do and then lost interest - I need to do this! I'm pretty sure there is no way I could manage two blog posts a day though - very impressed with your determination! x

  8. Good luck with that many posts, but if you have survived teaching practise I have complete faith in you achieving two posts a day! If PGCE's (I'm assuming that is what you did) are still as intense as they were when I did mine a few years ago then two posts a day should be a doddle! xx
