I: One More Start

So, here I am again, resetting my blog The Dispatch. I lost count of how many times I reset my blog for my mental health, published a few posts, and then lost my way. Why do I keep on failing to update my blog frequently?

After reflecting, here are my reasons:

  1. I have too many grand plans for the blog but lack execution.
  2. I can’t even make time for blogging, but I can make time for everything else. (I do write on my Moleskine planner/journal more often. Sorry, Dispatch.)
  3. I’m scared that I will make a mistake in my posts.
  4. I try too much to write lengthy posts.

So, now that I’m resetting my blog, what should I do this time? This time:

  1. I will have simple, more achievable plans for the blog and truly execute those plans.
  2. I will dedicate at least 1 hour to blogging daily on my laptop or phone. But I will only publish posts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
  3. I will rely on apps like Grammarly to avoid typos. But if I still miss out on mistakes, those mistakes will serve as lessons for me. And besides, it’s my blog, my mistakes.
  4. I will take it easy and write short yet more personal posts. And when I can truly write a lengthy post, I will do it.

Now that I know how to do better, here’s to one more start – a better start.

Hi. I’m The Deranged Writer and welcome to The Dispatch.

Yes, he wears a mask sometimes. And according to most people, he looks like Bruno Mars when he is unmasked. He is a web/graphic designer by day and a hobby writer by night. (Or during his free time. It depends.) He is a huge fan of Dave Grohl and The Undertaker. He is a friendly introvert.
