I remember sitting at my computer a little over a year ago and taking up a blog challenge of blogging once a day for 30 days. I had a few slips here and there but managed to catch them up and get through my 30 posts. Well those 30 days finished, and I did a few more blogs, tried to start another challenge, but somewhere along the way I got through 2 more weeks of blogging before I stopped totally. And it wasn't until I was moving my client's websites to a new server that I rediscovered my blog just sitting there waiting for me to return. And I'm left with the challenge: how on earth can I catch up a year's worth of missing blog posts?
Well I couldn't get to the end of the 30 day blogging challenge without taking on another one to keep me going. So I got myself on another couple. The first is to learn something new each day for the next 30 days. I've already learnt a lot today by browsing through the other's learning.
It would appear that it's quite easy to fall off the wagon even after doing something consistently for 30 days.
No matter how many times it happens, I'm always surprised at how fast a day can slip away from you. And once that's happened a few times, you realise the whole week came and went and you don't really know what happened to it. I think I need to put my web designing job on hold for a while and work out a way to slow time down.
I've got to the end of my 30 day blogging challenge and have decided that I will continue blogging, but it won't be every day! I seem to have the most trouble writing on a Sunday.
Sometimes you're just in the mood for a great laugh. My sister showed me this website last month, and reminded me about it again tonight. I was feeling the need for a pick-me-up, so loaded it up and laughed away.
I had a friend ask me for some advice about setting their own blog up because I was suddenly "blogging my brains out". It made me smile and tell him about Cricket's 30 Day challenge where I have to blog every day for 30 days. Now he probably thinks I'm crazy (if he didn't already). But it also made me think about how I nearly threw it all in earlier this week.
I am really enjoying Cricket's 30 day challenge, however seem to have hit a brick wall with my writing, and get stuck after choosing the title and the picture. Well that's not quite true, I can usually get the first paragraph done.
What better thing to do on Sunday afternoon, than to spend it at the dining room table doing jigsaws?
I've been managing to unpack a few boxes a week but I'm quickly running out of places to put things.
