Is It Just Me?

Has this month flown by or is it just me? Maybe it’s because spring has finally made up its mind and is here to stay. Maybe it’s because posting for this challenge has kept me busy. Or maybe it’s because writing, in general, has kept me busy.


Whatever it is, Tuesday is May. And that’s a little bit crazy to me.

The other day, I posted a poll asking what you all wanted to see after the challenge is done. It seemed to be a tie between keeping the daily posts going and 2-3 posts a week. (At least, it was the last time I looked.) I’ve decided I’m going to scale back to 2-3 posts a week for May and see how that works. If I find I’m not being consistent, I will revisit that at the end of May and decide from there.

At this point, honestly, I’m getting a little post-fatigue going on. I feel like I’m running out of things to say. I know I’m not, but I blasted through my brainstormed list and didn’t generate new ideas to replace the ones I used, which was all of them.

Tomorrow is the last day of the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I would like to know what you liked about my posts during this challenge. Did you learn something new about yourself/your creativity? (You know I had to bring this post back around to that, didn’t you?)

I’d like to hear it.

And tomorrow, my post will be about the types of future posts you’ll be seeing here.

Happy creating.

    this month though was supposed to be about blogging daily, circumstances were such that i could not, and hence i ended up posting once every couple of days (and i have three days worth pending posts for today to complete the challenge:) )
    so definitely not just you…. but it is totally fun to keep trying and to be part of the UBC family..

      It was fun. :) I can’t believe I actually posted every day this time. I’ve tried a couple other times in the past and quit about halfway through.

    Definitely not just you! I am having trouble remembering specific posts you wrote, other than the one Martha mentioned, because I have a terrible memory. But I have the memory of enjoying them, so there’s that. :) I can relate to feeling like you’re running out of things to say, too.

      I did find that having the list of topics helped quite a bit. I should do that more often. It might help with my consistency in posting after the challenge is over.

    It’s not just you Jen, the month went by quick after it seemed to have a slow start for me. But I had a post everyday so I’m happy! As for your blogs, I enjoyed reading all of them but my favorite was “Is Your Mood Related to Your Creative Output?” For your poll, I choose 2-3 per week, that may be stretching it but hoping I can write at least 2 per week. With my granddaughter joining in, we may accomplish that goal together!

      Thank you. :) Yes, I do think 2-3 posts a week is more sustainable than daily, even if I did use it as a kind of writing warmup most days.
