And So Accountabilitober Comes to a Close

Thank you, gentle readers, for sticking with me through the posting marathon that has been October.  Thirty-one days, thirty-one blog posts.  Most of which actually had a little substance, this past Saturday notwithstanding.

I can’t say it’s been particularly helpful in actually losing weight this month, but I suppose if I hadn’t been checking in with y’all every day I might have strayed even further off the path.  Regardless, I’m glad I did it.  Here are some things I learned:

–  Daily deadlines do not improve my writing.

–  Autumn is not the best time for a project like this.  I got a lot goin’ on right now, professionally and domestically.  Maybe I’ll give it another shot in June.

–  There is no shortage of ideas for great blog posts.  There is a shortage of free time.  Sometimes I just want to sit in the recliner and stare at the TV, not turn the computer on at 10 PM.

–  I really like writing this blog, and I like it even more when readership spikes.  And readership spikes when I write really good content and promote that content.  With that in mind, I’m focusing on three posts a week – four if I’m feeling froggy.  Mondays will be your weekly reading assignment, Wednesdays are Five Things Wednesday (because people like lists) and Fridays will be weigh-in.  And I might actually pay attention to letting more people know about the blog.  People who don’t necessarily read the Facebook.  Actually, I could use your help in that.  If you’re reading and enjoying, tell a friend!

So.  Enough whining.  Wednesday back to healthy livin’ talk!


Thanks for reading.
