Am I a Lazy Blogger? What Happened to Me….
When you first start a blog you have a million things to say and even a year later you have a million more, well at least I do. I attended #FinCon15 and came out of the door guns blazing with focus and a plan. The plan is still in effect, but for some reason recently I have fallen back into my old lazy self. I find myself watching a ton of football, checking out my fantasy football roster and scoring(Undefeated), watching movies and my new found love for shows that involve time travel. I have a pile of items sitting in my closet all ready to be listed for eBay, but I’m not terribly interested right now. What happened to me?
My life didn’t get flipped turned upside down(name that show) and a bunch of crazy things happened that I’m dealing with. In fact over the last 3 weekends I have enjoyed volunteering at the Spooky Zoo and seeing my family, a fall trip to Door County with some trail walking/hiking, and this past weekend a forest preserve walk/hike and some basketball, I’m 33, but my body is 63 so I’m in pain, just thought you should know.
I did not get busy at work, I’m not putting in extra hours each night that prevent me from going home and working on the blog. A minor change is I am focusing on a promotion at work, so I have been studying/learning on my train ride home instead of listening to personal finance podcast or reading a good money book. I have been coming home as usual to walk the dog and do a little cooking, but the motivation to take the time with the blog has been less than normal.
I have been writing some, in fact, I have a 2,000 plus word post on 401 (k) and the company match all written it just needs to be revised. I still think and read about money every single day. I just made a payment to unofficially* pay off of the last of my personal debt, so I am full charging towards my financial independence date of May 2020. I’m contributing more to my 401 (k), I increased my H.S.A. contribution for 2016 and still I sit with Mr. 1500 Days Interview as my last piece of work, pun intended.
So I ask you, the good people of Even Steven Money and the bloggers from near and far. Am I missing some sort of motivation? Did I mess up my habits by switching to weekly posts? What’s wrong with me? Please feel free to play doctor and tell me what’s wrong.
*It’s unofficial because the payment has not gone through and another back story that’s longer than this asterisk would like
