Today is thankfully the end of the NaBloPoMo Blog Challenge I deiced to do. I think this is the first blog challenge I have finished that I started. Most Monday's I do a Meaningful Monday, and I have started linking up for a Hey It's Okay Tuesdays but other than that I don't have a normal blog. I had a ton to post about in Korea but now that I am home it was kind of nice to have some topics.
I am kind of sad it is over, but very happy at the same time. I blogged everyday this month with the exception of one day and I really don't even remember what happened that day. The last prompt that Blogher.com posted for this challenge is:
Wednesday, November 30, 2011
What did you learn from doing NaBloPoMo?
Simply the only things I really learned from this past month was that I can blog everyday, and that it really does take time but that if I stop and jot down thoughts as they come to me then sit down to post about it later it is not that bad. For some reason when I sit down to post I can never think about what it was I wanted to say or how I wanted to say it. I also learned that post are never going to be perfect and sometimes you just have to let go and post it. I have so many drafts sitting around right now because I started them, kind of sort of said what I wanted to say, or just got the idea down but then never finished it because it's just not right (read perfect).
I didn't always go with every prompt they had, some of them just didn't relate to me or really weren't interesting but others were things that I had so many thoughts about that well I am still working on them and can't wait to post them as soon as I finish with them (some of them are long and are more like books than post, full of memories). It was nice to just have a topic every now and then when I just couldn't think of anything to blog about or my life was seeming just kind of dull and I didn't think anyone would care to read about it.
I recently found out that they do NaBloPoMo every month over at Blogher and I have yet to decided if I am going to take part again or not. I worry if I don't this poor blog will go back to getting updated every few weeks or often, but...well I really can't think of a reason not to other than the month of December is going to be quite busy, but when is life ever not busy? I guess I will check in ever few days and see what the prompts are and if I want to do any of them but at the same time I wont stress if there is a day I can't post.
Do you post everyday? Do you ever write your blogs in advance and then just schedule them to post? I started doing this and I love it, but then some days I some how get 2 or 3 post...oops!
On a side note I really don't know what to do with my profile on Blogher. Most day's I don't remember to go and post a link back to my blog, or ever update my profile, and it's anyone's guess as to if I will ever blog on blogher.
