My drafts

I just realised that I have 96 draft blog posts. That’s quite a bit. Every time I get an idea for a blog, I create a post with the title (or not) and write down a few notes. Mostly this is done on my phone. I almost always have ideas at the weirdest times, so I just open the WP app and create a draft post.

Then later when I actually think about writing out the post, I either get too lazy or the idea doesn’t seem that great anymore. I guess I’m not that only one who does this. But 96?!?! That’s quite a lot of draft posts.

I think my procrastination gets the better of me and I just decide not to write it. I also have the great charm of being a perfectionist at times. So if I think I have a really great idea, I’ll think about so many ways to write it, that I just end up not writing it.

I know this can’t be a good habit at all. I need to sift through those 96 posts and start writing out some of them. I’m pretty sure there are some good ideas among them. 🙂

  1. I am the same way. Definitely cursed by drafts!! But I like to think that drafts probably have the best posts in them somewhere, I mean hey if you thought it was a good idea once, maybe there’s some magic in there somewhere.

  2. Try not to aim for perfection..instead just aim for getting better and raising your own bar then when you are ready, go for excellence. Finishing your draft posts will get you there!

  3. Have you been making progress toward this? I actually just cleaned my drafts out last night. I combined all of the topic titles in one post draft, if there was no body written along with it. I also combined a few drafts to make a pretty solid post!

    1. That’s a great idea! I will try it. I’ve gotten through a few drafts. But mostly just writing what comes to mind nowadays. So, I will most definitely borrow your idea and do a clean up.
