We have now been travelling for one year and two months and it has become abundantly clear that I need a new approach to my blog posts. I am currently six months behind. My parents now congratulate me on my memory rather than my writing. Ania wondered how I could be trekking in Laos when she had left me that morning sat in her living room in Saratoga.
When Nairoby joined us in Thailand, we had a long discussion about whether it’s better to prioritise frequency or quality when posting. Nairi said she wanted to know what I was doing here and now, but I was very firm in posting only when I was 100% happy with the content. Alex suggested that my posts were becoming rather long; I said I didn’t care about that. And apologies to all those we signed up to receive email notifications of new posts who thought we were spamming them as I kept shifting posts around in an obsession with chronology.
My approach so far has left my blog posts back in Phnom Penh while I’m here in Mexico City. Worse, it’s become a chore. Though I stand by my original sentiments, I have to admit that it’s not working out. So, from now on, I’m going to make short posts that I’m not 100% happy with in no order at all.
