I'm falling back into my perfectionist ways.
If I don't feel like I have anything "interesting" to post (which is most of the time), I don't post.
If I don't feel like I can get a post written the way I want it to be (interesting with just the right amount of wit, of course), I don't post.
If I don't have a chance to get the picture just right for the post, I don't post. (Case in point, I have had a post in draft for a couple of weeks waiting for me to get around to putting in a picture.)
If I'm exhausted (which has been the case lately) or lazy or bored or any number of other things, I read all kinds of blogs, but I don't post.
Needless to say, I'm not posting. I'm in a perfectionist rut, and I need help to get out. My motto for my students and my daughter is that what is important is "the process, not the product."
Now if only I could figure out how to practice what I preach.
