30 Posts, 31 Days

I notice that my posting frequency has been dropping with each month since I established this blog.  September saw only 8 posts, the lowest so far in a month.

I find blogging both fun and personally enlightening. I do my best thinking when I have a conversation or write about something, as I'm not a particularly introspective thinker. So blogging is a good tool for me to think some things through. And, of course, I am my own favorite subject, so I love to write about me!

When I first got started, I had lots of stuff to write about. I documented the kinds of things that made me cranky, scoured around for recommendations on the internet for how to deal with anger, wrote about the aids that we use here at home to help with caregiving. I also didn't have many blogs that I read, having not yet found the large community of MS bloggers and the smaller community of MS caregivers. Reading those blogs can take a surprising amount of time (time well spent, I might add).

Part of my drop off in blogging, I believe, is just getting out of the habit. I plan to post something at least 30 times this month. This should get me back into the habit. So, be prepared for lots of stuff here, some good, some drivel. I look forward to a fun October.

Bring on the drivel, lol! I have slowed down my blogging too. I find that my mood will dictate my blogging, like those last few weeks in quebec, I think I only blogged twice because I was so miserable! But now I'm having fun with it again!

Hi Cranky,
Look forward to your posts.

Rain - it's so true how your mood/perspective impacts the desire to blog.

Herrad - thanks! I look forward to yours, too.

That's the whole blog thing, isn't it? Good stuff (and your stuff really is very good)...drivel...let 'er rip. It's a life, and every life is interesting.

Zoom - thanks for the compliment. And, I agree, that is the whole blog thing.

I think 30 in 31 is too ambitious...why not start with a smaller goal like double of last months entries?

Not that I don't want to hear what you have to say, I love your blog! I check it everyday to see what's going on with you two.

L - it may be, but I'm giving it a shot.
