It’s the first snowy day of winter here, and I’m cozied up inside… and it occurs to me, that much like our ancestors prepared ahead of time for winter, I enjoy storing up blog posts and pictures in case of future need!
Now, “need” in blogging terms is hardly a life-or-death thing… but it gives me a warm feeing to have a post or two drafted in case I get sick, weather prevents me from taking pics, or life gets too busy. Sometimes I don’t even write the post – just having the pictures ready to go is enough!
For example, right now in my drafts I’ve got two general Better Picture Project discussion posts, a pattern repeat that seems a bit boring to blog right away, and two patterns that I’ve tested which haven’t been released yet. I don’t usually have quite that much squirreled away, but I have to say, it’s feels good!
Do you post everything right away, or do you save some of it up for a rainy day? I’d love to hear!
p.s. In a very uncharacteristic move, I’ve decided not to buy any more fabric until Christmas, unless it’s for gifts. I have way too many clothes and enough fabric to keep me going for a few months… and heaven help me, I’m trying train my brain to take pleasure in responsible frugality! Hold me to it, please!
