I’m joining hosts Girlxoxo, Traveling with T, and Estella’s Revenge for their 4th annual #AMonthofFaves blog event – “a fun way to recap the year that was” – during the month of December. Today’s topic is “This Is How We Blog.”
How I Blog
I was going to say that I blog inconsistently, but really I blog consistently, once a week when I post to The Sunday Salon Facebook group. I do sometimes miss one, but rarely.
Other than that, I don’t really blog. I always have lofty goals in January each year to blog daily or three times a week, especially on different topics, but I never carry through with them. That’s why this January, I’m not making any blogging resolutions. I’ll continue to blog once a week and if I add any posts throughout the week, I’ll just do it.
I only use one blogging app: WordPress, and post from my phone. We haven’t had a desktop in years, and when our laptop bit the dust last year, we never replaced it. It’s not the optimal way to blog, but I work with it, which means usually my posts are short like this one.
How do you blog? What tools do or websites do you use to blog?

I would completely screw up if I blogged with a phone. I can do it on a tablet now and then but have troubles uploading photos. The only new years goals I will have is to join a few reading challenges, like at Girlxo.
I’m trying to imagine only using a phone to blog, and I can’t. I know a lot of my students use their phones for everything (even writing their papers!), so I know it can be done, but I think I like the bigger screen and spread of the keyboard too much.
I don’t mind, but I probably would blog more if I had a laptop.
I’m impressed you blog from your phone. I wouldn’t want to do it! I’ve tried using my tablet, and I find that is still a pain.
Stay consistent, my friend!
I use my phone to reply to comments, read other blogs and sometimes write short posts. We try to get 3 posts up a week but it doesn’t always happen. Like you, we always have lofty goals in January and try to follow through with them. We’ll still make goals this year and one of my goals is actually to pay attention to those goals rather than forgetting them by February.
Paying attention, period, is one of my goals for the new year. 🙂
I don’t necessarily want to do it either, but to be honest, we have other priorities besides a laptop…and I’m OK with using my phone, for now.
I totally get it.
