Yippee! It's Over!
The 30 blogs in 30 days challenge was really hard for me. Writing so many blogs was quite challenging. Sure, I had a hard time keeping up with blogging each day but the harder part for me was coming up with so many things to say. I don't think I am that much of an interesting person or have that much of an interesting life. It helped that we were given topics to write about but some of the topics were just plain weird. I mean really hard to write about. Some nights it took more than one and one-half hours to write my piece because I had to think about it and write some, delete it and then write some more. I would look at the topic the night before so I could think about it all day.
Some of the posts I just didn't do what the assignment suggested because I just couldn't do it. "Title of my own book." "The future of online activism." "My Personal Brand." "Elevator blog." Come on! What would be the title of my book? The Life of a Lady with 2 Crazy Dogs. Luckily my niece was born in the middle of this task and that gave me other things to write about. The easiest three blog assignments were "Three Truths and a Lie", "The Fear of Hitting Publish" and this one. Today I am supposed to be writing three things I love about myself or that I am great at. Okay, here goes:
- I am really good at my job. I have a stringent ethical line which makes me really good at being an HR consultant.
- I have patience. When we adopted Lucky anyone else would have given her back in a week. I have enormous patience to deal with things when I know the other person/animal/etc. has no ability to control it. I have less patience when the person/animal/etc. does stupid things. Example: holding and talking on a cellphone while trying to park a car in a parking lot. Just drives me crazy! There are so many examples of stupidity that I could fill a blog!
- I can see the good side in things, the humor in things (okay maybe the sarcastic humor but still humor), and the the bright side in things. I used to be more of a glass half empty person and then I got sick. Now I try very hard to be more of a glass is full kind of person. Yes, my foot hurts but I have a foot. Yes, my eye is swollen but I can still see out of it and it doesn't hurt as much as my foot!! Ha ha!
So tell me, was this exercise interesting for you as a reader? Did you find the topics interesting? Did you find out more about me? about anything? Did you enjoy it at all? What was your favorite blog topic in the last 30 days? Should I continue with the same types of topics occasionally? Let me hear from you. I am interested in your feedback. Thanks for your comments in the last 30 days. They certainly kept me going. Thanks!!
