To-do lists

Something on your “to-do list” that never gets done.

Well, this WordPress prompt is really quite easy to answer: writing blog posts!! Ha ha

I always have great intentions of writing, but I always fall short. I truly thought being a new “empty nester” I would have more time on my hands. Well, that didn’t go as planned.

And the embarrassing thing is I absolutely love training, learning new things and imparting that knowledge. For the past 15+ years, I have been an adult volunteer for the Boy Scouts of America. In that time, I have participated in local, regional and national training courses. I was instrumental in beginning out council’s University of Scouting. I have staffed multiple local, regional, and national training courses for both youth and adults. I have presented multiple times at various SQL Saturdays. I saw all that not to brag, but to show I truly do love training and imparting knowledge. I guess I am more of an in person trainer, not a writer.

One of the hardest part of writing is determining the subject matter. I believe if given a topic, I could figure it all out. Another issue with flogging is the fear that I am writing about things that have been done to death. No one wants to read duplicate topics. It is hard to be original.

I hope to do better. I will set new goals and task myself with doing one blog post a month to start. If I can accomplish that, maybe increase frequency of blog posts. Maybe, haha!
