I definitely started to lose my steam the last week or so. And I may have cheated a few times (catching up on/finishing a few posts in a day, and leaning on a giveaway for a couple of posts), but shhhhhh. The important part is that I actually composed a blog post for every day in November. Thirty days, and thirty posts. Phew.
Blogging with any sort of regularity is hard, but blogging every day is a whole ‘nother animal. For those who do it on a normal basis, I give you major, major credit. A fellow blogger posted on Twitter today that she has all of her posts planned for the month of December. I am supremely jealous, because I’m just not that organized.
The hardest part for me was definitely coming up with things to write about. And although I had high hopes for the prompts at first, I just couldn’t get into them. To make myself write every day is one thing, but to force myself to write about a pre-determined topic is completely different. It was too forced.
Before Nora, I used to write pretty often—usually 20+ posts a month—but then that number started dwindling after her birth, and well, if you look at my archives in the right sidebar, you’ll see that my average has fallen. I do the best that I can.
It was fun to challenge myself but I’m glad that it’s over. It’s not that I’m going anywhere, it’s just that things will likely slow to a more manageable pace around here. Yay.
Overall, it was just a long month, wasn’t it? It didn’t really seem like it while we were living it, but looking back… Election Day seems like AGES AGO. Our trip to Virginia—how was that only three weeks ago? Impossible.
Thanks to all of you who have left me comments this month (well, and always). They helped carry me through. :) Are we ready to welcome December?
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 33 and have been married to Michael for seven years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
