I have a problem, I hoard posts

Hey y'all! Sorry for disappearing without warning for three weeks. I had multiple posts ready to be published in my drafts, but for some reason it never crossed my mind to post them (which I suppose just further proves the title....), anyway, I finally bit the bullet and pulled this one out and polished it up for you guys. I hope you enjoy! (Also this post was written in the summer so circumstances have changed a wee.)

I'm not sure when this started exactly, but it's gotten really annoying lately....


As many of you have probably already figured out, I typically post once a week on either Saturday or Monday. This schedule works pretty well for me during the school year when I don't have nearly as much free time as I do currently, but ever since school let out for summer break, I've written quite a number of posts, and they're all currently sitting in my drafts, doing nothing.

According to my weird-ass brain, I'm apparently saving them for something, but I honestly don't know what that something is....


I guess this can all be traced back to my irrational fear that one day I'll have nothing to post when Saturday and Monday roll around, but like, even I can acknowledge how stupid that is. I mean, if I need more posts, I can just write more, or if I ever get burned out, I know I can just take a break, but my brain doesn't seem to understand that?

So yeah, right now I have about ten completely finished, unpublished reviews and discussions that could literally be posted at this very moment, but because of some odd reasoning, I just won't.... And that's not even all of it....

Whenever I finish a post that I'm particularly proud of instead of scheduling it like a normal human being,


I'll proceed to just sit on it for like all of eternity, endlessly waiting and waiting for that perfect day to post it that won't ever really come. I've somehow gotten it into my head that if I post something at the "wrong time" everyone will, for some mysterious reason, flat out ignore it, and that's kinda my worst fear. I know I shouldn't care about stats, comments, shares, and yada yada, but it really does suck to see something you worked so hard on get little to no attention.

I haven't really come up with any solution for this, though I guess you could always force yourself to schedule stuff, but I was hoping that writing this post would help me recognize and resolve this weird little habit of mine. So uh here's to hoping that my brain realizes how stupid it's being....

Am I the only one who suffers from "chronic post-hoarding syndrome"? Do you have any tips for beating it?
