"I hope when you've finished the month, you'll write about the pros and cons of daily blogging."
Gosh, there's a thought that I never really thought of, but probably should have.
It was over a year ago that I decided to try blogging every day for one month. This was mostly a result from my sessions with Life Coach - I agreed to do it for homework. Once I accomplished that, I decided to try to keep it up for another month, and so on... and so on... and so... We're still alive, a year later.
First, let's think. The cons:
- low wages
- no medical plan
- no sick days
- challenges me, in a good way
- forces me to be more observant every day
- (usually) keeps me from getting bored
- HOPEFULLY keeps me from getting boring
- helps me to regularly keep up with blog friends, old and new
- more fun than housework
At first, what kept me going was that I didn't want to have to tell Life Coach that I didn't make it, and I couldn't lie to her either. By the time I'd done it for a month, it had become a habit. I wasn't sure I'd make it through a year, though. If my foggy memory serves, I recall blogging through, the zombie flu, last year's holidays, a bad foot, Comic Con, vacation corn, the city burning, meeting ShadowRun300, test season, college visits, and several other distractions.
At this season of my life, while I'm still waiting to be what I will when I grow up after I work myself out of the mom/tutor/Xtreme crossing guard job, blogging has been a nice place to hang out.
I'm grateful for Magnum who brings home the lion's share of the wages, so I can work part-time. I'm grateful to all of the visitors to the blog, for the comments and stories! I wouldn't do it withoutcha!! Thank you!
I jumped in for another month. As always, it's not like I'll fall into a boiling pit of lava if I don't make it.
