Consistency

Exactly a trait that I’m missing. Consistency is HARD unless you have a God-level of self-control and discipline. When we started this blog, I was able to post almost 5 to 6 blogs every week, now it’s one blog every two to three months. I know I can give a lot of shitty excuses for not posting regularly, like

  • For every 60 seconds, a minute passes in India.
  • There was a power outage in the neighboring town.
  • Someone came and stole my blog idea from my head (I know, this is some Inception level crap right here)

As you know, consistency is a very important trait that one needs to have in every aspect of life, not just blogging. It just shows the levels of dedication, self-control, and discipline. Missing one of the three traits might result in inconsistency. I would rather call inconsistency a slow poison. You wouldn’t notice it unless it hits you hard.

I last posted three months ago since my dear sister put a lot of pressure on me (Kudos to my sis for having the glimpse of hope). This was my last post – Falling is bliss, where I discussed about some inverted, out of the world, inside the mind philosophy about falling. You can read that too..!

The last three months just passed by like three days. These three days (ahem), I was on a boring routine that was very regular. If you want to know more about my routine, you can read it here – The daily routine.

Now that I’m back, you can expect my posts often. It’s about time, that I learn some consistency in life. Also, I’ve missed my readers and fellow bloggers who are my well-wishers. Thank you for your support all along.

Is it irony that I write about consistency while not being consistent? I’ll leave that to you guys. I’m curious how you guys manage to post regularly!? Let me know in the comments.

See you in another similar post, where you would have no idea what you just read..! Ciao..!

  1. Haha this was so relatable 😂
    My blogging Schedule is horrendous. Everytime I decide to be consistent here, there comes something in the way and I get lost in my own world.
    Glad you are back. Looking forward to your posts 🥂

  2. Good post. I think consistency is something even the most dedicated struggle with from time-to-time.

    I’ve found that linking it to other habits has helped. I don’t know if you’ve ever read “Atomic Habits,” but the author talks about this a lot.

    I’ve found that all my habits link to my running. I’m a frequent runner, and when I’m consistent in that, it’s easier for me to be consistent in everything else.

    As well, I get loads of ideas while I’m out on a run. So it has multiple benefits for me.

    Is there any other habit you have that really sets the tone for your day? Maybe you could link writing/posting to that to make it a stronger habit?

    Good luck!

  6. if u fail at something or are unable to follow up…this actually makes u a prsn who is really aware of the pros and cons of the idea….
    and anyway…tge neet and iit teachers mostly are those who havent cracked it themselves…coz they know that what are the mistakes that one shud avoid…as everyone knows what is to be done..knowing what to avoid and why…always gives u an extra…
    being experianced and aware abt the setbacks of lack of consistency will always help u to follow it now…
    All the best and happy blogging ahead✌❣

  8. Haha nice post to be backkkk… Totally relate to your thoughts, it just seems like three days… This year started like 8 days back, right?

    I am also struggling with the consistency, to overcome I have a new blog post theme in my IG page, so after every two posts I have to consistently post a blog for posting new blog post. I thought this way atleast I will get the motivation to write a Blog by default 😊😊 Hope you find this helpful, awaiting your future posts!

  9. I totally relate to 3 months passing by in 3 days, it is a good life I feel :))) I don’t much enjoy the word discipline, it is creates a judgement. I do believe in consistency. I posted thrice a week when I began blogging. I don’t find that ability anymore. So made a commitment to post once a week, with permission to myself to take few breaks in the year as needed. That helps me show up and also follow my joy without the pressure. Have the most amazing times ahead with all you do, your writing is awesome, congratulations on 50th post ✨✨✨✨

  10. I started blogging many years ago and had a regular schedule but couldn’t keep up and with home pressures it all became too much. I stopped blogging for a few years but really missed it and have started a new blog with an aim to post once a week but only if I can or have something to say. Don’t put pressure on yourself just enjoy it. Blog when you can or want and we’ll be here to read it.

  11. Hello Samuel. Your humour posts were just hilaariousssssss. And for consistency, I prefer to write in the night. some hours but the silence helps to think. And like maybe we ought to think a little less abt repetition( SOmetimes the layout matters but overall nobody can stop thinking abt that😶) Keep writing!!!! Waiting to read more of your posts!!!!!!!!!!
