My goal was one blog post per day for the month of November, and I made it! Big Happy Dance!!!!!
The rationale behind my goal was to get my blog back on track by setting aside time each day for thinking and writing about what interests me in a way that will also interest you.
I’ve also worked to reconnect with you, the reader. I’ve done a better job of responding to your comments. I’ve focused on my Twitter and Google+ presence. I’ve also spent some effort on Facebook, but, let’s face it, Facebook doesn’t allow those of us with pages to truly connect with our audience.
But what has actually happened in the process is I’ve reconnected with myself. Blogging keeps me sane. It allows me to work through things. It reminds me that what’s going on in my world now is not the only thing happening in the world. It shows me that no matter what’s happened to me, I’m not the only one.
Not sure yet where I’ll go from here, but I am going to keep writing. Here’s hoping you keep reading.

Con-cat-ulations! Most of us may only be virtual profile images and usernames, but we’re still extended family. Whenever I’ve been away, I’ve missed everyone. Glad you’ll be writing regularly again, and happy about it.
Thanks! I am happy about it. I’m also happy with the content I’m generating- it sounds more like the old me.
I shall be reading your blog definitely. xxx
Thank you! It’s an honor to have you read my words.
absolutely… and I love to read your posts :o)
Thanks! I like to think of you guys all sitting there in your neat little square icons watching me and giving me ideas when I’m trying to write.
You are a better woman than i..bravo..i have been so awol it’s not funny..ugh 🙂
I’m sure there’s a good reason and see? You’re back!
Sorry I haven’t been able to read everything this month (my bad not yours) but I did notice the increase in posts on Facebook. You are always so thoughtful and thought-provoking in your posts. Well done on reaching your goal. Just one thing – it is still way too early for Christmas Carols. Hugs and best wishes to you and yours x.
LOL. Not here in the US. We start this weekend to get folks in the shopping spirit.
Connecting with yourself is a great way to put it. Coming from a once-a-week-blogger (in a good week) Congratulations! That is quite an accomplishment.
Love and licks,
My motivation for blogging is it helps me feel competent and appreciated- two things I don’t feel other places.
Congratulations. I know posting every day can be difficult. I think I made it 11 days once.
Life happens, right? This was a personal thing for me, so I’m feeling really good about meeting this goal. I needed to feel good about having accomplished something. It will help me accomplish a bigger task that I need to get done.
Great job! I know how hard it can be. 🙂
Yay! Good for you! I love your blog so of course I will keep reading. 🙂
Congrats. That’s a lot of work and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. I agree about Facebook. It is not blogger friendly for connecting. 🙂
If you write I will definely read and post it:-) !! Thanks Jen
Well done! Congrats; looking forward to future posts. 😉
good on ya; I’ve been off for over year; husband sick and then died. He was the best; I’m just grateful we had each other for that long; it was very healing for me. I have to get back; I’m out of touch technologically, best
I love your posts too! Maybe I can do this for December? I’ve been in a funk. 🙂
Good for you on meeting your goal. I usually try to write a post every day in November but I can barely find wifi in the wilds of Virginia lately.
I also find that regular blogging gives me a lift. I’m glad it helped you reconnect with your true you.
Great that you’ve taken such positive energy out of this experience. It can be a lot of work but if it’s fun it’s rewarding.
It sure is!
Awesome job, Jen. Congratulations! We’ll always keep reading, just so you know. 🙂
You do sound all refreshed. Go Jen!
Woohoo!!!! Congratulations Jen and Rumpy! I know that blogging everyday must be very hard but you made it!
Besides it sounds like you now enjoy writing it, so I’m very glad you have fun!
Thank you very much for posting one blog par day! Sometimes the contents are a little complicated to me to understand because of my poor English but I always try to know what you want to say. Of course we love to keep reading your posts!!! 🙂
Thanks Kevin and Eripan. You are one of my first fans!
