January Challenge - over!

Well, my 'Blog every day in January' challenge is over.  And I evidently failed at it.  Although I must admit, I don't feel too bad about it.  While I liked the challenge of coming up with blog ideas and being more consistent, I didn't particularly care for the execution part of it.  The picture editing, formatting, stringing sentences and paragraphs together and just trying to be interesting enough was hard work.  Not completely unexpected, but it did confirm my preference to be creative away from technology - knitting and taking pictures mostly (ok, not totally technology free...), plus reading and running and deciding which weekly challenge to take on next.  I hit a bit of a wall last week and, even though I had a few things I could have written about, just did not want to post.  I didn't want to force myself to just ramble or post something half arsed just for the sake of it, so count yourselves lucky you were spared from that. ;)

I'm not going to stop blogging though, because I like the outlet and community it brings, plus I love reading others posts and interacting with them.  I won't continue posting every day - even though I really admire the people that do, I just don't have enough to write about, plus I don't really want to share every detail of my life on the internet.  I do want to post regularly though, maybe a few times a week, but I'll take it as it comes.  In the meantime, thanks to everyone for stopping by and taking the time to read and leave comments.  It's really nice to find so many interesting people out there!  I should be back stomping in puddles and showing you the pictures very soon...



  1. Haha, I love that photo!

    I know I would struggle to post every day - an average of 3 times a week is more than enough for me. I enjoy your posts, so glad you're not going to stop blogging :)

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I admire you for setting yourself this challenge, it's something I wouldn't even attempt as I know from the offset that there's no way I'd manage to post every day.

  3. you did great blogging so often in January. That picture is funny! x

  4. GREAT photo! I loved reading a bit more from you this month, but there's no point burning yourself out; it's supposed to be fun, after all!

  5. You did extremely well! Writing a blog post takes me ages from editing photos, formatting and adding links - not least thinking of what to actually say! I have a lot of admiration for anyone who can post more than about twice a week!!
