Being an Organized Blogger

My blogging routine is all a mess just lately. Even more of a shambles is my commenting. I have a forum that I nurture in fits and starts. January has come and gone and my new years resolutions are in tatters. What is happening to me?

I wish I could say there was a reason but there are no excuses. All my good intentions have come to naught. It’s my own fault and I have to own up to it. My copy of GTD has even gone missing amongst my disorganized mess, kind of funny huh?

Yes I have been busy. Of course I have had deadlines. People manage though to be organized with work, hectic lifestyles and goodness knows what else on top. I have a sneaky suspicion that I like a bit of chaos …

So what to do?
