Well, I am a failure. I made this big announcement about not doing things I don’t want to do for the blog any more, because it is just a blog, and the only point is to build a community, not treat it like a job. And then I immediately went back to treating it like a job. HELP!
I wanted to watch Tribhanga, but I didn’t really want to watch Maara, and I’m not super excited about Sir (although I will probably watch it since my friend wants to see it). And yet I still watch these things and write long reviews, WHY???
I need to STOP DOING THAT!!!! I’m considering giving myself a rule of only allowing one post a day unless something really big happens (like Varun getting married). It’s the vacuum effect, you know? I can’t start working on a novel or submitting articles to paid publications or just making new friends in the real world until I make space for that by stopping doing so much blog stuff. Heck, I can’t even keep up my blog friendships (by the way, a bunch of you will be getting Valentine’s cards in the mail) unless I make more space for them.
So I am going to try very VERY hard to not post all day every day. And y’all have permission to start telling me “Margaret, go outside and play in the sunshine! Why are you writing a post about this person’s birthday?”
