Word Of The Week – Productive

I’ve lost count of the amount of times that I’ve used productive as my word of the week, it is a great word though. For the past two weeks I’ve been working up at my desk (inspired by Emma from Sunshine and Rain),  trying to make a clear definition between working hours and downtime, it’s working really well. So much so that I’ve been more productive this week than I had been in the whole of January !

I love being organised that’s no secret, but I also get behind just like everyone else. My spreadsheets have been neglected since Christmas and my to-do list of admin jobs had been gathering dust. This week I’ve cracked on with it and although I’ve still a way to go I have made a good dent.

This year I’ve decided to take a different direction with my blog, I’m working more on my own content and less on unpaid reviews. I have so many posts that do really well on Pinterest and I’ve realised that my time is better spent on working on those. Just by making this decision I’ve seen my productivity and enthusiasm for blogging increase. This year will be my 6th blogging and I have a feeling it’s going to be my best year yet.

Joining back in with linkies, updating and refreshing my old content and working on new content has given me the spark back that I felt I lost a little last year. I think sometimes you get stuck in a rut with blogging, trying to keep up with everyone else not to mention all the social media platforms can be exhausting. Sometimes you have to think outside the box, take a chance and go in a different direction.

Being productive this week has been great for my mental health too, I always feel much better and brighter when I get lots done. I did compromise with myself on Wednesday when I didn’t feel well though, I spent the morning dozing and reading then did some work in the afternoon instead.

All in all it’s been a pretty good week, I’m hoping for a nice relaxing weekend with lots of family time and perhaps a little reading.

    I like the way you are taking the lead with your blogging, rather than be lead by whatever is sent to you for review. A while back I decided only to take the review opportunities that I was really interested in and enjoy the writing instead. It works for me. Productivity certainly seems to help you. I’m glad you are finding your rhythm again. Hope you have a good week. #wotw

    Well done on being productive, it does make you feel good. I am still waiting for my desk (I’ve chosen one a little more expensive than I can afford right now) I’m a little worried that my husband is going to take my space as he’s planning on putting his guitar stand there! Thanks for joining in with #wotw xx

      I hope you can get your desk soon Anne, it makes such a difference to work from one.

    Productive weeks are always nice. So glad that focusing more on your own content is helping bring back the joy in blogging. It is easy to get stuck in a bit of a rut after a while. Hope that this year will be a good one for your on the blogging front 🙂 #WotW
