I’ve always wanted to be the type of person that plans blog posts weeks in advance or uses an editorial calendar to stay track, but I’m just not that person. I tend to write a blog posts when I have the time or come up with a stellar idea (re: marathon training and weight gain), and sometimes that’s every two…
