Jen's thoughts

And I Made My Goal! Woo Hoo!

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.



About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  1. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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,

  8. 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.

  16. 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.
