I have been so productive since pulling myself away from the computer, blogging and social networking. Dusty and forgotten projects have once again gained my attention and I feel wonderful for the progress I am making with them!
When the NaBloPoMo challenge presented itself this November, I excitedly joined, participated and completed the challenge. It was not as much fun as I thought it would be, although I am happy for the new friends I found. My lack of “fun” had nothing to do with the whole NaBloPoMo event, rather, it was due to a month full of numerous medical appointments and procedures.
It was also during that month of November when the Daily Post exhibited major problems with links on their Daily Post Prompt pages. Although discussions began on their customer service forum, the thread was quickly closed and barred for user’s future comments. I think things improved a bit, but, in my case, my link was never grabbed by the Daily Post Page and I thought, “Why bother? I have better things to do.”
Besides, I have enough ideas and stories and topics of which I can write. I don’t need an “assignment” which is what many of their prompts felt like and I could not write with feeling and conviction. I wrote just to write and then I stopped and wrote a few blah posts about being sick and then about awards and that’s been it and it’s been great!
I realized how sedentary I have become with all the time I sat, staring at the computer screen, pretty much all day long. I need to lose weight, I need to “use” my body before my muscles begin to atrophy.
I declare that I have broken my addiction to daily blogging, especially at this upcoming holiday season when there is so much to be done around the home. I’m hoping to curb this addiction to just once a week. And today is that “once a week” for this week. :::Sigh:::
