Too ambitious?...

So maybe I was somewhat too ambitious in setting a goal for ourselves of posting 12 times during the month of October. A decision that I took upon myself to enact upon the both of us (without previous consultation with V). We gave it a valiant effort, but still came up quite short with only a total of 6 posts. Only 50% of our target. But s 600% increase in posts from the previous month. The numbers don't lie.
We'd love to be able to spend our days planning and prepping posts, snapping shots, sketching incredible fashion pieces, writing wonderful stories, but there is simply not enough time in a day to find a quiet moment where blogging is our top priority. It quickly falls down the depth chart behind, eating, sleeping, watching our shows, and prepping for work. It's a shame but its true. An interesting solution to an increase in free time, that I've devised with the help of A (a mate who teaches at school with me) is to simply reduce the total number of hours in a day to 21. So those 3 hours per day multiplied by 7 days in a week will equal to an extra day with, you guessed it, 21 hours. So 8 days in a week, with each day having 21 hours. Now you're probably thinking to yourself "Well that doesn't make any sense at all, eventually we'd have sunshine during the night, and darkness during the day". And the way I see it is, if the Inuit and other folk that live above the arctic circle can do it, well maybe we to can do it. We'd then still work Monday to Friday, but we'd have slightly shorter work days (to allow us to do the rest of the things we need to do during the day, and we'd be able to enjoy a 3 day weekend. As for the name of the 3rd weekend day, let's call it, well-deservedsday (I'm very open to other suggestions as to what it should be named instead of my suggestion). Thanks.
