What's up with all the blog posts?

I have to admit that I have really gotten out of the habit of blogging. It is not that I lack for ideas and thoughts. I even take a lot of photos specifically for future blog entries. It is more a matter of life being full, the To Do list being long, and blogging not ever making it to the top of the priority list. I am so deadline-oriented that often, if it doesn't have a deadline, it just might not ever get done.

Several bloggers I know {Nester, Emily, Jen} planned October as a "31 Days of..." month. They have admirable goals to write everyday on a particular theme. They have planned out in advance their topics and posts, leading to what will be a very informative, inspiring and helpful month on their blogs. While I haven't had time to actually read any of their wonderful posts yet, I do look forward to it! {Links to the nearly 750 bloggers joining them is here!}

For me, I thought I would just challenge myself to write and post everyday. {Oh! A deadline!} I am not going to overthink it. I am not going to spend a lot of time at it. I am just going to do it. It is a challenge to myself to get back to blogging. It is a creative outlet for me, a place to record thoughts and ideas and pictures, a wonderful opportunity to interact with others, and a way to share my Creative Memories fun. This is going to be an unplanned, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants-month as I post about random things. My goal is to write something each day so that I can get back into the habit of blogging.

So here we are, on day 5 of the 31 days and I am making a commitment. I have a couple of good friends who are so faithful with their blogging, Jenny & Melanie. Their blogs, which inspired me to start blogging in the first place, are like their family scrapbooks. I really admire their tenacity and perseverance. I miss blogging. So now I am accountable to keep it up throughout this month. Accountability --- another thing that motivates me!
