This 31 Day Blog Challenge

Posted: August 18, 2013 in #31WriteNow Challenge, General Interest

20130815-183531.jpgOkay, I admit it, I didn’t post yesterday. I took a break. After writing posts for 16 days straight, with 8 posts sitting in draft my brain felt like a block of swiss cheese, or a colander, or a salad spinner. I’ve even blogged through 2 major tests that were mega important to my continued employment. I found out yesterday I PASSED. I blogged through my precious annual August vacation, that winds up today. I posted on my birthday (a national event, but Barack won’t add it to the calendar). The challenge has sent my already hyper active imagination into overdrive, and I felt like my circuit breaker on my personal hard drive was gonna over heat. Although I thought my brain had an unlimited storage plan, kinda like the Cloud, I had used up all the space. So I took a breather yesterday and chilled in personal power saver mode. I gave myself permission to take a skip day. Did I read regular books and magazines? Did I search out other interesting blogs. Did I do yoga, or take my daily walk down in my beloved Dequindre cut? Sit outside back in my personal Garden of Eden? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

20130815-183614.jpgI wrote long drafts for 2 upcoming Detroit Gets Gladiated Scandal Fantasy posts. Weird huh? Once I gave my brain permission to chill, and I shut myself down, I guess I unconsciously did a reboot, and powered back up with more ideas than ever. I was gonna take today off too. But then my fingers got the best of me, and next thing I knew, this post was written in 3 minutes. As a newbie, beginning blogger, this is kind of a nice feeling. I’m learning a lot about blogging, and challenges in these first 18 days. I’m still not ranting either. I picked up some readers, thanks for joining us. I’ve also visited some awesome blogs, and made a few digital connections with really nice people. Two weeks ago I even asked a women with a spiritual blog for some prayer assistance for my test studying. She sent me back an AWESOME moving prayer in under 5 minutes, and SHE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW ME, here’s the link to her blog. Thanks Mary xxoo.

So, here you go. Day 18 #31WriteNow daily blog challenge. Thanks for sticking with me, and for your amazing moral support.

    Day 18, huh? Good for you. I’m impressed, Girlie! You are an inspiration for me. I’ve been wanting to do a blog for years. Maybe …
    I remember your Garden. You’re right, it is an Eden.

    So glad you were invigorated! Congratulations! Think I felt your vibes. They told me to also take a day off from the computer monster so my fingers could rest. So I took two. LOL
