I am joining the Word Press Challenge. To Post Every Day in 2011.
I decided I would join the Post a Week option. I knew I could do that. I have been doing that fairly regularly since August. I LOVE my little blog that nobody knows about. Except for a very select group of readers (mostly relatives) who pop in now and then, my blog is an undiscovered territory in the vast universe known as the Internet. Yeah, I know. Call a WHAAAmbulance.
I really wanted to join the Post a Day people, but I was terrified. I do not work well under pressure. Sometimes my muse goes off on vacation and I am left here alone with my laptop, a cup of coffee, and no coherent (or even interesting) thoughts coming to my head. Yet – I feel like writing. Why? I don’t know. I wish I didn’t. I wish I could pass by the stationary section in Ross without buying an empty journal or two. Blank pages bother me. I’ve got to write something on them. It could turn out to be drivel, but it’s the writing I must do.
As I read about how to sign up and participate, the Others (more about them in a different blog), started giving me crap. And they were right in doing so. I started my blog because I wanted to get into a habit of writing everyday, like the published authors say they do. I am an undisciplined writer. I want to write when I feel like writing, and I will not become an author that way.
So… I am sucking it up and making the commitment to post daily. Even if I can’t edit each post to perfection, I will post Something. Every Day.Jodi Lea
