The obligation of having to write daily just isn’t working for me. Granted, there are only 8 days left and I could quite easily finish up, but really, what do I get out of it?
Last year it was a big deal. A test if you will, to see if I could blog daily. I was all sorts of proud of myself when I finished. This year, not such a big deal. It really felt like more of an obligation. Then again, with three blogs and a massive contest event, it really was just another obligation.
Now that I’m pretty much settled in I’d like to go back to focusing on work. I have articles I need to write. Seminars I need to create. Audio files that need to be edited. Clients I need to work with. I’m really more excited to focus on all of that than creating some drivel just so I can say “ta da! I blogged today.”
So having said that, I join the ranks of my fellow bloggers and move on with my November and I promise you, no more sucky, obligatory, but-I-gotta posts. Can I get a WooHoo?!?!
I too have thrown in the towel.
Abby, you finished last year too didn’t you? Just not as exciting the second time around, huh?
I am selfishly glad that people are quitting it because it was making my Reader TOO FULL and I couldn’t keep up which made me feel like a failure.
So, I thank you.
sizzles last blog post..Proof
LOL Sizzle, you crack me up. But it’s a good point – I noticed that my reader has been busy lately. Then again, I’ve barely read or commented on any blogs for the past month or so.
