Pre-writing blog posts – good idea, or not?

I was on vacation last week, and thought seriously about posting when I was away, but my internet connection was slow and I decided to give myself a vacation from blogging too.

A friend suggested to me not long ago that it’s a good idea to have three blog posts in the can. I often make note of ideas as they occur to me, but somehow I feel it would be “cheating” to pre-write too far in advance.

Looking back on recent posts, I see that most of them tie into whatever has been going on in my life (or my head) at around the same time I wrote them. For me, that’s part of the appeal of blogging, and a better measure of progress in my post-downsizing journey.

Wondering what other bloggers do…
