Okay, I have five more days of NaBloPoMo.
To be honest, I’m ready for those days to be up.
This has been an exercise in discipline, which is a lesson that I needed. But, there have been definite downsides too.
Firstly, and the main reason, I’ve gotten way less comments than when I post just a couple of times each week.
Secondly, my posts have gotten sloppy, silly, stupid, rambly. In the past, they have been thoughtful and at least somewhat composed and that is what I want this blog to reflect.
Thirdly, I really don’t have things to say out loud everyday; everyday is what my written journal is for.
Fourthly, I feel the need to go around and comment on so many blogs if I feel any justification whatsoever in hoping for comments on my own blog. This takes SO much time and I’ve pretty much put it on a back burner. I really want to do other things on a daily basis and visit blogs only from time to time, not comment on each and every post.
Fifthly, when it comes down to my thinking… “Oh, I have to post another dang NaBloPoMo post…” that probably isn’t good. You think? I think.
So, after these next five days, this blog will become significantly less active on my end. It isn’t that I don’t love to blog but unless I have something to say to you all – not to my journal – I won’t be posting. I won’t inundate you all with my daily mindless ramble. I would, after all, like to keep you as friends.
Enough of that…
Today I was in town a good bit with Mom. We went to the Post Office, Salvation Army (where I scored some SUPER-COOL things!), Kirkland’s Home, Cato’s (where I scored a SUPER-CUTE blue babydoll turtleneck!), Lowe’s and the Dollar Tree. We did all of this in the very cold rain. Brrrrrrrrrrr… It was good to get some things done though. Since then, I’ve been home doing some more crafting, making some garland and such. More fun! Wahoo!
Just to let you all know, I only have one more MyPoints referral for the month so if anyone wants in so that you can use it for your holiday shopping, let me know and I’ll send it your way!
