so good. When I started this challenge I was worried about not reading fast enough to have something to post about every week, which could pose a problem on a blog about the books that the blog author is reading…
There have been a few Sundays where I haven’t had a finished book to write about, but other than 1 post, I have managed to write about book related subjects when that has happened. This week I find myself about 1/3rd of the way through a book & with 2 other books waiting to be written about, but I don’t want to do that until I finish the book I am currently reading, because they all tie together. So, because of this, I find myself post-less this week & after spending the day at work painting the staff room, I am too tired to try & come up with a book related post. Please forgive me for this week’s lack of desire….I promise I will do better next week!
So, one full week has come & gone & I have done 2 new posts on my postaweek2011 challenge & so far so good. I think my Sunday posting is going to work out really well, but I really need my reading mojo to stick with me!!! WordPress are really pulling out all the stops to help bloggers keep up their postaweek/postaday momentum – they are offering daily suggestions on things to blog about & yesterday they suggested hooking up with a “blogging buddy” – someone who can give the needed encouragement, give feedback, etc. I have subscribed to the blog suggestions & there have been some great ones, which I am sure will come in handy when the mojo decides to go on vacation, lol!
I also decided to look for a blogging buddy & have been lucky enough to find 2! Ironically, by chance, they are both Canadians, like myself & one of them is living here in the UK, too. So, I shall be checking out their blogs (maybe even “pinch” a few ideas if I am lucky!), as they are both doing the postaday challenge. So, to Living with Joy & to Just a lil lost…, I say here’s to us & our blogging!
So, today is January 1, 2011 & with it brings new determination to get posting! I am currently sitting with 6 books read & waiting for me to blog about, so I really need to get in gear. It is with this in mind that I have decided to join WordPress.com’s Post a week 2011 campaign.
Essentially it is working to set posting habits by actually posting – novel idea! They are running 2 formats – post a week, which is the one I am going to do & post a day, which while I would love to do that, I don’t read fast enough these days to blog about books every day…….(not to mention, where would I find the time?) I think that a post a week should be quite manageable & to try & keep up some consistency I will do these on Sundays, which will leave the rest of my week for reading & maybe sneaking in a few other posts!
