I’m no Leo Tolstoy (he wrote War and Peace… I had to look that up) but I think I’m getting better at this writing stuff. I’ve been blogging and writing for a little over a year and a half now (between Hands to War and Virtual Hugs) and like most things… the continual repetition of doing the “same ol’ thing” gets a little stale. Just like your sex life… sometimes you gotta spice it up!
I’m also the competitive type and enjoy a good challenge.
So I’m going to do a little bit of both.
To break the repetition (or at least I feel like it’s repetitious) of my normal posts where I write whatever crap comes to my head that day… I’m going to plant a link at the end of each post guiding you to a blog that I frequent. I’ve made a few friends in the blogosphere and a few acquaintances and perhaps a few people who have no idea who I am or care to know who I am but I still like their stuff anyway. This month, it’s all about sharing the love of my (6) readers to my BB’s (otherwise known as “Bloggy Buddies”… I just made that up).
As far as quenching my need for competition I’m going to try to write a post for every single day of the month (that’s 30) so by the end of June I’ll have posted every day this month. Hopefully, if I’m able to accomplish this “30 posts in 30 days” challenge, I’ll also reel in my 1000th comment on Hands To War.
There may be some days where the post may not be that long… but there will be something there dammit.
Being a writer is something that is fairly new to me but I think it’s in my blood. If I can challenge myself to come up with new material every day for a month… then I think it’s something I can prove to myself I can do.
Wish me luck!
Oh… and comment… I feed off them. Feel free to suggest something for me to write about… I’d be happy to consider anything!
