I’ve just signed up for two blogging challenges.
As you can see by the date of my last post, I haven’t updated this blog since I rearranged the furniture for the summer. That was in July.
(For those of you who are curious, everything is back in Winter formation again, centered around the two fireplaces. Current reorganizing energy is focused on my houseplant stuff and my work files.) My other blogs and my business website are also showing signs of neglect.
So, given my track record, how am I going to keep up with TWO blogging challenges?
One, the National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo) challenge, has a specific theme (“Gift”) and the organizer will send out daily prompts. There is also a commitment to read and comment on the blog posts of at least 5 other participants each day. Some of the other writers are reallyreally good, which should inspire me.
The other challenge is a photo challenge, and I’m hoping it will spur me on to take more and better photographs. It’s a bit more free-form than NaBloPoMo, and the timing is more flexible. Usually, there is a numbered list of cue words, but one doesn’t have to take the photographs in the prescribed order, and it’s OK to blog about multiple photos on the same day. As long as I cover all the items by the end of the month, the order and timing don’t matter. (If the pictures don’t turn out well, I can always use the blog post to speculate about what went wrong.)
Should be an interesting exercise. Wish me luck!
