November 8th prompt for the challenge – Tell us what you’ve learned so far about daily blogging.
Oh. My. God. This. Is. Hard!!
I generally post about once a week and sometimes even struggle with that so this every day thing is tough. Thank goodness for the writing prompts or I’m not sure I would have gotten this far. Using those prompts, I’ve been able to stay a day or so ahead in composing posts so that I don’t stress out with deadlines. I’m already starting to sweat trying to decide what to write about this weekend (no prompts for the weekends).
I have gained incredible respect for those who post to their blog every day or every other day on a regular basis. It is a lot of work to come up with subjects and be able to elaborate on them in a way that is interesting to others.
I am definitely an amateur compared to these others and will probably never have a huge audience but blogging is something that I have come to enjoy. I am learning how to express myself through this medium and am connecting to people who I would never have met otherwise. There are as many different types of blogs out there as there are people and I never fail to find something interesting to read and comment on.
This picture has nothing to do with the subject of this post but I couldn’t think of one that did so I thought that I’d show off my lovely niece’s talent for gingerbread house decorating. I managed to get a picture of it last Sunday before DJ Chick had a chance to start picking off her candies.
