This is my 30th post in my participation of this year’s National Blog Posting Month, or NaBloPoMo, as it’s adorably and lovingly called. So. What have we learned?
Have we learned the true meaning of Christmas? [Wait, that’s still a month away. ] What about the meaning of life? [Oh, 42, already got that covered]
I’m sure I learned something these past 30 days. Tell you me it was a lot easier for me than NaNoWriMo. I’m surprised I actually posted for 30 straight days. Damn. And I thought the only habit I could sustain for that long is Netflixing and chilling (with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s). “American Horror Story’s” not going to watch itself now. What did I explicitly learn? Well, I’m going to use the “it’s dead week” excuse to save myself from the embarrassment of not having anything deep to say.
Let’s revel in this “achievement” for a moment. I cranked out a blog post a day for an entire month. Only perhaps 2 or 3 of them were any good, but I’m not too disappointed by that. I’ve met a lot of groovy fellow bloggers along the way and have come across some awesome blogs to peruse whilst procrastinating on final papers and exams these next two weeks.
So… what now?
Do I go back to my Monday/Wednesday/Friday posting schedule? I don’t think so. I like my Saturday Songbird entries and I’d like to keep up the habit of posting and interacting with the blogging community. I also still have a [loose] goal of accruing 100 new follow-button-clickers by this coming month. Continuing posting every single day runs the risk of blogging burnout, which I am highly prone to. But going back to just posting every other day doesn’t feel like enough either. For now, I’ll post everyday for the next week as I ponder these potentially life-altering decisions. Chime in via the spiffy poll below.
Once more, Moose and I would like to thank those of you still reading for supporting our efforts in spewing our unasked for thoughts onto the world. We can’t do it without you. (Well, we could, but then we’d have to acquiesce that we are, in fact, crazy.)
Let me know what your think: What have been your experiences with posting schedules, forming blogging habits, or even burnout? How did NaBloPoMo go for you? Feel free to post links to your posts in the comments!
