Blogging about your UFOs can be very useful. I mean, you don’t have to blog about them for a whole month like I was crazy enough to do…. but having them as part of your blogging routine is helpful. Even sharing your personal goals on your blog can help you achieve them. It is all about making them visible and making yourself accountable.
I like to have my list of UFOs posted on my blog as a separate page. As I said when I started this series, this one is old, and I will update it soon. Having it online makes it easy for me to go and look at my list, rather than having it floating around on a scrap of paper or a file in my computer somewhere. Of course I have my master list printed out in my Quilting Binder (more on that next month!), but I also like to have it online for reference.
I like that I can just cross things off on my online list as I get them done. It is very visual, and I am a very visual person. It also encourages other people to look at my list and think – oh, mine is not as long! Phew! 🙂
Blogging about your progress is great too. We all like to encourage each other and we love to see what we have achieved – that is really a major part of why we blog, right? I love to see people finishing UFOs and other projects, it really motivates me and makes me keen to finish more of my own. It is a win-win situation for both the blogger and the reader.
Blogging about UFOs and their progress is like a visual diary of our achievements. I like to go back and read old blog posts to keep me motivated and bring back good memories. I know there are people who print and bind their blogs every year. I’d love to do that one day because it would give me something to flick through and see my quilting journey over the years.
I have had many blogging breaks over the years, but I am glad I have still blogged for as long as I have, and hope to continue. And I hope that I will keep finishing all my UFOs – you’ll know because I’ll be blogging about them!
