I want to post more

This is just me popping the bubble of tension that always builds when I haven't posted in a while.

I hate that I have been so absent from here lately. One post in November and one in December, and I haven't commented on anything in I dunno how long... anything less than 3 posts per month is a sign that I'm really struggling with life. Definitely true right now.

and I only managed 56 posts for the whole year. I need that to change in 2019.

Anyone have tricks that worked for them to stay active on LJ?

Posting from my phone is garbage, but reading on my phone (I'm lucky enough to have a public transit commute with "down time" for this kind of stuff) keeps me engaged with LJ during the day and at least kind of reminds me to comment on things. Not so much with posting, though.

I put writing an entry as a daily on habitica as frequently as you want to do it. It's become a habit by now; I'm not ready for bed until I've written something.

I post once a week, and I type up the week's happenings two days in advance before I post it.

A fried did a one post every day type of approach for a while (even if it's a short one line post) and she said that it really invigorated both her own blogging and her whole list. Posting every day is not mine, but I am contemplating a "one post a week" approach for this year myself since I very much know the "bubble of tension" feeling you talk about ...

I've been hopeless with posting as well and I don't have any useful tricks other than if there's interaction, it makes me feel more of a sense of community.

I do follow you and have noticed how quiet you have been this year...i do hope you have a better year ahead.

After the ToS changes a couple years ago I'm rarely active here any more. Dreamwidth is where I spend my online journal time now.
on communication, social justice, intimacy, consent, friendship & other relationships, spirituality, gender, queerness, & dreams. Expect to find curse words, nudity, (occasionally explicit) talk of sex, and angry ranting, but NEVER slurs or sexually violent language. I use TW when I am aware of the need and on request.
