I have never thought of my writing here as ‘content creation’. But I was listening to a podcast which featured a blogger who has leveraged her blog into $$$, and she said something like:
“You have to create content that helps people. No one is going to want to read your online diary.”
I am very much thrilled that many of you HAVE chosen to essentially follow my online diary! But I also wonder if perhaps I should be doing some more how-to types of posts. I feel like I do some, but not all that many.
I know there have been recent requests for some more childcare-related tips (and there IS a BOBW episode coming up on this topic). I also feel like I need to organize (ironic?) my planning content, which is plentiful but all over the place!
I don’t think I want to turn this blog into a clickbait machine, but perhaps I could do one more ‘shareable/useful’ article weekly. Something to think about. Topic suggestions are welcome 🙂
CALL REPORT (brief because I “slept in” until 5:20 and I still want to get 3 miles in!)
Hours worked: 8:30 – 5:15 with 60 minutes of “home from work” types of things. So only 7.75 hours.
Calls outside of work ours: One at 6:29 pm (which is not really outside of work hours, but I’ll count it since I was home); one at 10:29 which thankfully was a 49 second conversation (literally; just checked my phone) with a nurse in the hospital about an inpatient and I fell immediately back asleep.
Grade: C because I just felt very stressed and my coping mechanisms were to eat extra junk (perhaps this related to the lack of sleep the night before?) and scroll. At least I didn’t click through any of the online shopping I was pondering 🙂 And I was a little salty/complain-y around the office without a lot of good reason. (Not to the patents though; don’t worry!)
On paper, the day wasn’t that busy, but it felt fragmented and the patents were ones that needed a lot of teaching and face-time care (so not quick).
New consults: 2 (one I did as outpatient), follow ups 3, outpatients 1 (SUCH low numbers why was I busy?!)
With kids: 4 hours (2 AM + 2 PM)
Exercising: 0.5 hours
“Relaxing”: 0.75h in morning, 0.25 at lunchtime, 0.5 in PM = 1.5 hours
Asleep: 8.25 hours, THANK GOODNESS.
