overcoming writer's block - crumpled paper on ...

I haven’t posted yet in the month of December. I don’t have much to say (actually I do, but I think I may finally be growing up am understanding the concept of not saying [or writing] everything that I think). So while growing up is nice, it doesn’t help my blog much.

In states of desperation I signed up for Plinky, hoping their prompts would give me something neutral but interesting to write about. It fizzled as their prompts prompted me to just give one word answers. In any case, in a new state of desperation, guising itself as conviction and determination, I’ve signed up for wordpress’s dailypost. No, I will not be posting daily as the title suggests, but weekly. It’s my new year’s resolution, let’s see if this one will break the record in length sustained (I don’t think any of my other’s lasted more than a day).

The dailypost sight made me feel quite amateurish and a little slow. There are step by step instructions in how to sign up, and they even give the bloggers a sample post to let their readers know that they are participating,

Title: I’m Posting every day in 2011!

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a day / once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.


<Your Name Here>

I can’t poke too much fun since I do plan on partaking, and I do hope you’ll encourage me with comments (skip the likes, they are cop-out comments!) and good will along the way…

and if you can’t do that, you can always critique (insult) me, I’ll take that too, it’s entertaining 🙂

See ya around. 

(Real funny, just did a spell and grammar check, you wouldn’t belive how many issues the progran had with the little sample post … I just copied and pasted it and there were spelling errors!)

    I’m pretty excited. I discovered your blog recently and was pretty disappointed that it wasn’t updated too frequently. I’m very much looking forward!

    Also, what happened to the PTA post? Looks like it disappeared.

    The PTA post was a sticky post. I wrote it 2 years ago and just reposted it (that’s how lazy I’ve been)

    and thanks for the support 🙂

    It’s nice to see new commenters out there.
