Well, it’s January 31st, which means … I made it. Thirty-one straight days of posting. And, if I do say so myself, I rocked that shit.
But Courtney, some of your posts were total crap!
OK, well, yes. You have a point. But, as I warned you on New Year’s Day, crap posts are part and parcel of a post-a-day month. You knew they were coming.
So here’s what I learned upon my return to good ol’ Malfeasance:
1. I like blogging. I do! Coming up with something every day is hard, but it’s also a nice brain workout. Most days I enjoyed my quiet hour before bedtime when I was able to write.
2. When I feel forced, my posts are crap. I write all day long at work, so sometimes I’m just all out of words by the end of the day. When I’m inspired, I love writing. When I’m not, it’s a slog. I suppose that’s normal.
3. As blogging goes up, tweeting goes down. I’ve been more or less absent from Twitter this month, simply because my flashes of conversational topics can be put to better use here. What is a tweet if not a not-fully-formed blog post? Forget 140 characters — turn that bon mot into 500 words, yo!
4. I’ll keep it up, I think. Maybe not every day — we can’t all be blogging machines like Funky Carter — but when I have something to prattle on about, my little forum here will remain open. Will you still come visit me sometime? I hope so.
