Twenty-two days of blogging with the NaBloPoMo thirty day blogging challenge. What have I learned the past twenty-two days? Well, I learned that I can do it, though there are some days that I just don’t feel like it. I am away from home three and a half days each week and when I come home I decompress. It takes a lot of motivation for me to re-enter, so to speak. I learned that my reasons for doing this challenge have changed over the past twenty-two days. Originally, I had a large ego and I that thought I would be noticed – hahahaha. I even took their advice and read some other challenger’s blogs and commented. That didn’t last long. I had very little response from posting on their website, not to mention it was rather difficult to understand how exactly to get pictures posted. It stopped posting my pics so I stopped posting on their site. Oh well. I’ve found that many bloggers, like me, want to be noticed but not necessarily read too many other blogs. That’s not good. So, I have given up the need to be noticed so much and I am doing my best to notice others. It really is a nicer way to live. Selfishness is over rated.
Please don’t misunderstand, the blogher.com website is full of talented writers of all kinds. I honor them. But for me it is a very busy website and hard for me to navigate with so much on there.
Also, did you know it is Thanksgiving this coming week? I’m a little behind. I must get motivated to think about cooking and I also want to decorate for Christmas. Kind of. I usually don’t do it until the day after Thanksgiving but I do think I will do it sooner. Maybe. I also realize that my decorations have gotten old and I feel like moving on. But boy, that costs way too much for me. I thought of one way to get a new Christmas tree theme and save a lot of money doing it.
What do you think?
So blogging on here, on this very cold, cloudy twenty-second day of November.
