This and that

30 posts in 30 days. This my friends is Number 30.

No Make It Monday this week because well, I am too busy being happy that I made it to the big 30 posts!

At the beginning I thought that I would go back and read the novel that I wrote a few years ago for NanoWrimo, and that I would have oodles of blogging fodder from that but I didn’t get a chance. I have managed to write a post every day, and even managed to cope with the holiday issues and traveling by scheduling a couple of the posts.

It was actually a lot easier than I expected. I have a real mix of posts. The regular Make It Monday’s helped. There was a review and a sponsored post thrown into the mix. Other than that, I was really pleased with the fact that I just let go and wrote about some things that I really needed advice and help with. I wish that I had more time to come and thank each and every one of you that have left comments but I wrote this post instead. I even tried my hand at some creative writing. I shared pictures of my home, I wrote about my worries about weaning and routine changes and the fact that Piran freaked out around my family.

I thought I would run out of posting ideas but I actually have a few still left in my brain rattling about. I need to write about my incredible good luck recently when I have been entering competitions. I want to unburden myself, I want to work things out. I want to say thank you for your weaning comments, I know that it is a contentious issue and I am grateful that you all feel able to share your experiences and opinions with me. I want to tell you how much I am looking forward to Christmas, I want to mention my son is 4 months old tomorrow. I want to write my post for the Writing Workshop this week.

That said, I worry that you all could be a little fed up of me appearing in your Google reader (or whatever else you use!). I worry that at times content has been lacking. That I was posting for the sake of posting (on a couple of occasions that is true). This was an experiment and I ending up learning something. That I love to blog. That I think my best posts are the ones where I just start with a rough idea and just write. I am amazed at times where those posts go but I am always happy with the result. I cannot imagine what being a new mum would be like for me without Twitter and blogging. I am sure I would have managed but I feel that these things enrich my life right now.

Why do you love blogging?
