8 months down, 4 more to go

by Andrea O'Connell

How can it be that September is here?

That means, I have written a post a day for 8 whole months.

I have learned so much as a result of this Wordpress Post-A-Day Challenge, but next time, I’m going for the Post a Week Challenge.  That sounds more reasonable!

“Take a night off from the WordPress Post-A-Day Challenge, Andrea,” I often say to my self.

What would be the big deal if I miss a day of posting?   Heck, it’s not a big deal, but I’m madly married to this challenge, for some reason, even though it about exhausts me.

It’s already 11:30 and my eye lids are dry and sticking together.  Are there other bloggers as nutty and committed to this as me?  Am I crazy?  A masochist?

The truth is, I have enjoyed this challenge, I enjoy the exchange of ideas and the opportunity for free expression without fear of rebuke.   I’m a soft-spoken person – not a big talker, but I sure can blather on here, can’t I?

I was distracted tonight, which is why I am so late writing.  Truth is, I was playing with my new website – trying to learn how to put it together – It’s like a puzzle, only you can’t see or touch the pieces!  It’s going to take a lot of studying on my part to put this together.  It’s not as easy as WordPress, that’s for sure!

Anyway, I was looking for images tonight, and stumbled on the most amazing photos – they are award winners from the year 2010, they clearly are deserving of that honor, as you’ll see.

The pictures took my breath away – I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

    Dear Andrea; We won’t hold it against you if you miss a few days. After all, rules are made to be a guide not a punishment. The fact that you decided on a goal that was probably more than you could want, tells me you have lofty aspirations but you suffer from adding these to your list of many things to do in a day. I would rather have you around once a week than not at all. Get my drift friend……

      I sure do, you sweetheart! And it’s silly to be so rigid about doing this every day…. Its just that I want to say that I did it! Tonight may be one of those nights – errands and a haircut are on my list after work! 🙂

    Ha ha, a haircut is a very good reason not to write but I know you will, I just know you …. Make it short. The post that is. lol
