Hi everyone, it’s Mabel! This week, I just wanted to share a quick update on my blog. As you might’ve noticed, blog posts aren’t as consistent as they were when I started. I made this blog with a plan of posting three articles a week, and now I’m down to one or two a week, but I’ll admit that I’ve skipped a few weeks here and there. Luckily, I’ve come to realize that it’s okay!
Before, Molly always worried that we weren’t posting enough or trying hard enough, but now, after having this blog for two years, we’ve realized that the consistency of posts doesn’t matter as much as we thought. In fact, we’ve recently had more viewers than ever, despite posting less. So, we just wanted to thank our viewers for continuing to check out our blog.
Of course, we will continue to post one article per week, but if we miss a week now and then, we won’t stress about it. Yet, in case you were wondering why we skip weeks sometimes, here are a few explanations:
- We need a break sometimes. Molly writes full-time all week, so sometimes it’s hard for her to sit and help me write my posts on the weekend, especially if we have other plans. We deserve a chance to relax now and then.
- We want to make sure we write things we’re passionate about. If we can’t think of a topic that we really want to write about, then we might take extra time to think of new ideas.
- Molly has other writing projects she’s working on. She’s currently trying to find an agent for her middle grade novel about puppy mills. Also, she’s been wanting to start a second blog (not dog-related) for the past year, but she’s always been too busy with this blog to get it up and running. So, maybe if she spends less time worrying about this blog, she will finally get a chance to work on both of them at once.
- This blog is just for fun! Molly loves writing about dogs, so this is the one place where she can write whatever she wants without someone paying her to do it. So, we don’t want to feel obligated to write every week, but we really appreciate how many humans have read and followed our blog!
I know we don’t owe the world any explanations, but sometimes it helps to share them. I just want to make sure our supporters know that we appreciate them and that we’ll continue to work on more content for this blog, even if it’s not as consistent as before. We want to spread the word about rescue dogs as much as possible, so we won’t be stopping that anytime soon!
