After a productive week at the day job last week, I was blindsided by a week of reverse Midas, where everything I touched turned to lead. The entire week was damage control, rethinking decisions that met roadblocks, and just general exhaustion from staying just a hair ahead of disaster.
I did visit ROWers, and was slightly more present on Facebook than usual, but felt slow and sluggish most of the week. I slept in later on Saturday than I have in six or seven years, which helped clear my brain fog. I also managed to think at some length about my blogs. Although I have only managed to post check-ins once a week at best for several months, my other blogs are in much worse shape. I plan to post at least once a month on each of them. It’s not much, but it will lessen my guilt about them. If I manage that schedule, I will slowly add to it as it becomes more of a habit.
I also plan to reply to comments for at least ten minutes a day. I have a conference from Thursday through Monday, when wonky internet may throw a wrench in the plan, but I will keep it on my plate when I return.
Please go encourage other ROWers, whom you can find here, as well as on Facebook in the ROW80 group and on Twitter at #ROW80.
