One reason blogging suffers for me is that I always prioritize doing over blogging. That sounds cool and all, but it’s actually just another excuse. There’s always something more important than doing your laundry … until you run out of underwear. Blogging has no such hard failure mode, so it’s even easier to fall out of the habit. But the reality is, just like laundry, if you set aside a little time for it, you can stay ahead – and you’ll feel much healthier and more comfortable if you do.
