Determination and perseverance have brought me to the last day of the Ultimate Blog Challenge.
I'm patting myself on the back for achieving the goal - to write and post a new blog every day in the month of January. Creating a new blog every day forced me into a routine. I'd have my first cup of coffee while checking email, Facebook, and posting the blog I wrote the night before to three sites besides twitter. Only after this was done--which took about an hour--would I make my breakfast. This was eaten while I wrote my Morning Pages a la Julia Cameron.
Toward the end of the month, I started drafting the blog the evening before and then tweaking it the next morning before posting. Later in the day, I'd scan the Ultimate Blog Challenge Facebook page to find other folks' blogs that caught my attention so I could comment or tweet.
Now that the end of the month has arrived, I willingly give up the chore of posting every day. Not that I'll give up blogging. But, perhaps it will be more realistic to aim for one or two a week. I have to admit, my numbers haven't really changed that much as a result of this experiment. As soon as I find the time, I want to study my stats and see if I can discover a pattern that might guide me in the future.
I do want to shout out a big thank you to those of you took the time to drop in everyday and check out what I had to say.
