If I didn’t post everyday, would you miss me? Would you notice? 😉
I have posted almost everyday (M-F) here for the last 13 years. Of course I’ve missed some days here and there, but in general, I’ve been rather consistently producing content here on Grechen’s Closet since I started.
I don’t do it because I have to, or feel like I should – I do it because I have something to say, something to share. I also want to be consistent – I want you to know you can come here everyday, maybe during your lunch at work, or when you get a spare moment, and see something new. To be honest also, I love it when I go to the blogs I read and there’s something new to see; I thrive on original content.
But today, I don’t really have anything compelling to share with you, so I don’t have a post. Okay, yes, this is technically “a post,” but you know what I mean. I don’t have an outfit photo (I am wearing my Eileen Fisher linen pants and James Perse linen blend tee. No shoes right now), a new article, or designer to share. I could throw something together half-assed, but that’s not me.
Which gets me thinking about inspiration, and how we work. For someone who works at home, for herself, I’m a terrible manager LOL – I do not have a schedule and never have. I have never created an editorial calendar, or planned posts weeks or months in advance. I write about what I feel like writing about at any given moment, and it’s usually very stream of consciousness…(Oh! I think I’ll do a Five Questions post about inspiration this week! 😉 )
I think/hope you come here for that – for me – and not for sponsored, planned-out content or page-filler.
But I wonder, is there something to be said for consistency? For posting every day?
Do you read blogs every day? Do you look forward to new content regularly? Do you expect it?
