I just finished participating in Nester’s 31 Days challenge. I wrote blog posts for 31 straight days, quite a feat for someone who was having trouble keeping up with her blog at all.
Not only did I do it on this blog, but I did it on my Reality Homeschooling blog as well!
What did I learn from blogging for 31 days, 62 posts?
-It’s highly unlikely that I will ever do this again! It was so much harder than I thought it would be and to complicate matters, a kitchen water leak pretty much caused my life to fall apart during September, the month I was going to write all of the posts so I could get ahead.
-I’m not nearly as fond of blogging as I once was. That’s hard to admit, but it’s true.
-I need to streamline. Two blogs, a 31 day commitment, a non-functioning kitchen for nearly a month, and all the other commitments I had made me realize that I need to streamline. I see a converging of blogs and websites in my future.
-I really wish I could be creative and let someone else handle the technical stuff. One day maybe I’ll be able to afford a VA.
-I don’t like the feeling of being glued to my computer and this challenge sort of made me feel that way when combined with the other writing projects I do online.
-I really like projects I can complete quickly. I don’t care for things that drag on. My attention span just isn’t that long. That’s why I enjoy writing for Zujava:
It was a good stretching experience and I hope my readers enjoyed it, but it will take me at least a year to even consider doing it again. I feel like I just gave birth!
Hey, don’t forget that NaNoWriMo starts today. Get going on that novel you’ve been putting off!
