January Celebration Day 15: We’re Halfway There

So we’re halfway through January and I’m not sure what I expected to get out of this month of crazy posting, if anything, but I’ve already gotten a ton out of it.

  • I’m addicted to it now. I agreed to a month of posting, but I actually want to sit down and post every day, even if it’s just short post filled with pictures.
  • I thought I would need a break after this month, or that I would possibly miss a day. Sorry, but you’re stuck with me. I don’t see either one happening.
  • Not every post has to be super-stellar-amazing-deep-thoughts-that-woo-people-and-knock-their-socks-off. I’ve found I can truly blog for me now that I’m posting on such a regular basis.
  • I’ve met some amazing people and found some spectacular blogs in this process. I took on more than just blogging every day. I make it a goal to find at least one new blog every day, too, and intend to continue.

So far? I’d say it’s a success, at least on my end. Sure, some days are tough and frustrating and I feel like I may lose sight of my original intent. Some days I wonder why I’m trying so hard. But I’ve been reminded plenty of times with new followers, sweet comments, funny tweets, and much more that it’s worth it. Besides, Nathan doesn’t have to listen to me bitch as much when it’s all done here.

I’m hoping the rest of the month is just as rewarding. But I’m pretty sure it has to be – my birthday is in five days!
