I can’t believe I blogged every day for 30 days. I honestly thought I’d last for maybe ten days then get bored and move onto my regular blogging schedule, posting maybe once every two weeks. The writing prompts on Blogher certainly helped but I also enjoyed forcing myself to think of something my readers might be interested in. Sometimes the thought of blogging after I had already done it 12 hours before made me want to think back to the day I found out about NaBloPoMo and change my mind but overall I think it was worth it.
Last night’s blog post was a total cop-out but I’m still counting it since technically I posted, even if it was two sentences at 11:59pm. I remembered that I hadn’t blogged with 3 minutes to spare – I think it was just meant to be. I was laying in bed about to go to sleep when it hit me, “OH CRAP! MY BLOG!” (A totally nerdy thing to say in bed, or anywhere, btw). Luckily I have a WordPress application on my Blackberry so I was able to sneak in my post just in the nick of time.
Blogging every day helped me reflect on what is going on in my life and provided me with something to focus on as I don’t have a whole lot going on in my life other than working and taking care of my dogs. It also helped me appreciate people who blog frequently and put out great content, whether they do it for personal or as a profession – blogging can be difficult! Who knew!
While some (ok, a lot) of my posts weren’t very inspired writing them provided me with a lot of satisfaction. Knowing I was writing something that maybe someone could relate to or at least have a laugh at made sitting down to write every day a little bit easier. I have to make special mention for all of the people that consistently post comments on my blogs – It takes a lot for someone to sit down and form a reply, especially when there are a lot of blogs out there to read, so thank you so much it means a lot to me.
Except my blog to contain a lot more personal photos as I finally got my DSLR camera fixed. I still don’t *really* know how to use it, other than putting it on the auto-setting, so my photography will be a work in progress. I also hope to blog more about improvements we are making to our home, what I’m grateful for every week and any other silly things that come to mind – for example: Why have I been in such a great mood since my husband shaved his beard? Are beards inherently depressing? Why does he want to grow the beard back if I’m loving his clean shaven face? Riveting material.
Thank you again for being such great readers and for bearing with me as I posted 30 for 30!
