NaBloPoMo

Your probably wondering what in the world that title is all about? It's National Blog Posting Month. Yep, that's right, I've committed to a blog post a day for the month of November. We'll see how it goes.

The nice folks over at BlogHer are providing us with a prompt every day to get the juices flowing. I'll probably do a mix of their ideas and my own. Since this project is something of a spur of the moment decision, today I'll use theirs.

What is your favourite part about writing?

My favorite part about writing this blog is the sense of satisfaction I get when I've done it well. I'm always a little sad when I don't get any responses to it. I realize that sometimes responses are on FB or Twitter, but I always like to see replies here. Somehow that validates the psot. I guess that makes me a little narcissistic doesn't it?

I think I need to keep in mind that sometimes a response doesn't need to be a post to the replies. If I make someone happy with a beautiful photo or encourage them to tackle a new project, then that's what important.

Well, here's more positive feedback: I'm going to do a post a day too! Thanks for inspiring me, we'll see how well I do.
Good luck!

Agreed, I can get totally caught up in counting "comments". Sometimes I think about turning them off, as I think that could make it about the post, and not it's response. BUT the whole part of blogging I am drawn to is the community it develops, and commenting is an essential part of that!

Best of luck to you. I am also doing NaBloPoMo this year. I love getting comments, too. I like what you have written about the idea that the response to a blog post might be something we do not always get to directly see.

I've been following your blog for over a year now and I've never commented, but have enjoyed every single post! I love Chicago, I love knitting, and I love your beautiful yarn.... I get a fix every time with your blog! Thanks!
