A to Z Recap and Assessment
This was such a good delve back into blogging for me. Not that I was wildly successful... I mean I DID get a blog up for every letter (two recycled from the past, but 24 fresh content). But I learned a ton about what was and was not realistic for me as a BLOGGER—meaning a person who not only posts content, but gets around to visit new people.
Monday has some flexibility for me. My work week starts a bit slowly and I can steal a bit of time. I was able to get to a reasonable number of blogs on Mondays and expect I could maintain it. Then, from about noon Monday my job picks up and stays crazy. If I do well, I can MAYBE back visit those who visit me, but that is about the extent of it. Then Friday, I can get a bit of time again...
With that in mind, I think I will go forward blogging twice a week—Monday more seriously and Thursday or Friday lightly (as in silly or funny).
But this month of frantic writing was ALSO good for me on another front.
In January I had a couple writing setbacks that really sort of threw me into a funk. I've hardly written since. Nearly nothing. I had my confidence shaken and just have not been able to face it. This month of drabbling has given me back my sense of whimsy, which allows me to play a little, rather than being so worried about quality which has stopped me up for the last few months.
So overall, THANK YOU A to Z!!!
In other news, I have added a Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire blog because I find I am obsessed and needed an avenue, if anyone is interested.
