Daily Doses of Me
Wednesday, March 2, 2011
The first time I attempted posting daily was in July of last year. It was something I had wanted to try since I started blogging, but I was a little afraid that I would run out of things to blog about.
I did pretty good considering that there was a lot going on in our lives at the time. Hubby and I were busy working on 150 chairs for the local high school, the kiddies were on vacation and my sister-in-law was visiting with her family. I had plenty to write about, I just lacked time and energy.
While I did have a lot of fun doing it, come August, I was more than relieved not to have that kind of pressure anymore. I tried to convince myself that I would keep it up, but I never did.
In October, when I received notice that my blog was going to be featured on SITS, I read through all of my posts trying to decide which posts to highlight. I couldn't believe that I had so few blog posts to choose from. I promised myself that I would get back to posting daily, but again, I never did.
Then at the end of December, when writing my Best Of 2010 post, I was kind of disappointed that I hadn't even written half of the great blog post ideas I had, nor did I write about all we did that year.
When I read about The Blog Dare on Bloggy Moms, I knew that was exactly what I wanted and needed. A challenge of sorts to get me writing daily.
And that is exactly what I did in January. I posted 28 days out of 31. Pretty darn good considering the most I'd ever written in a month was 24 posts.
I had planned on doing the same in February, but with me being sick and all of my tooth troubles, it wasn't possible.
I realize I already missed yesterday, but this month I am going to do my best to post everyday. Not because I feel like I have to, but because I want to. I just hope you'll tune in everyday!
