So I've decided that Fridays and Saturdays just aren't good blogging days for me.
I'm going to try to blog the rest of the week from now on, but until I can get better at having blogs prepared ahead of time I'll definitely not be trying to blog every day.
It's not quite over yet, but I figured I'll use today's Stream of Consciousness to talk about my first experience with NaBloPoMo.
I think it was really good for getting me into the swing of blogging. I liked having a goal for my first real month of this blog. I missed a few days here and there, but I don't mind it. I still feel like I accomplished quite a bit, and it will help me from this point forward.
I want to slow down a bit in the near future and give myself a chance to get posts built up and written ahead of time, because for right now I've been writing every day about a project I also did that day. I want to get to a better point, so if something comes up I don't feel stressed to get something up since I'll have something ready to get put up anyway.
I enjoyed having a place to go everyday after posting and seeing what others had written that day. I found quite a few blogs that I really enjoy through the NaBloPoMo page. I have a feeling I'll still follow it a bit so I can find more interesting people, but I don't like the pressure that it put on me for most of the month.
Overall I feel a lot more comfortable with blogging than I did at the beginning of the month. I still have a long way to go, but I've now got 28 (this makes 29) posts under my belt, and feel like I've got many, many more to come.
This was my 5 minute Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…
- Set a timer and write for 5 minutes
- Write and intro to the post if you want, but don't edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
- Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
- Add the Stream of Consciousness Sunday badge to your post.
- Link up your post at all things fadra.
- Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.
