Yes, folks, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. There is yet another challenge for the writers who just can’t stand going without one.
I found this particular one when I joined the BlogHer Network a couple of days ago. The challenge is to write a themed blog post each day for the given month, in this case, February.
BTW, this should in no way intimidate or discourage any writer from picking up the gauntlet of that which has beaten back many a writer. After all, there are many writers and other bloggers who already post each day. I know, because I used to be one of them.
According to the BlogHer challenge, February’s theme is “Relative,” meaning that each post must have something to do with family in one form or another.
Now, having redefined what constitutes “family” many times across the span of my life, I don’t seriously feel challenged as to topic. I have entire state’s worth of pseudo-family to draw from.
What might concern me, if I allow myself to think about it for more than a nanosecond, is the fact that I have three blogs—not counting an inactive one in the UK—which might, technically, fall under the auspices of this challenge.
Should I be held accountable for only one of my blogs each day, or, do I have to include all of them in the challenge?
That’s a big question and one I have only a few days to answer before beginning the keyboard shuffle.
I’m counting on all of you to help me with this decision. Am I supposed to do all three—that includes Trailing Inspirations on WordPress—or can I muddle through doing only one of them? And if only one, which one—Claudsy’s Calliope on Blogspot, or Claudsy’s Blog on WordPress?
Comments are encouraged, indeed, required on this one, peeps. HELP ME DECIDE!
I stumbled upon a website this evening that made my heart go pit-a-pat. It was a library blog. I know I’ve a bit slow on the uptake sometimes, but who knew that libraries had their own?
I’ve found Nirvana again in the form of another link between my love of libraries and my inability many times to patronize one when I want to. I know very few writers of any age who lack a deep respect for and love of libraries. It must come from our childhoods when those lofty and spacious rooms stood as enchanted realms where almost anything might pop out to take you hostage until you could wrestle it home.
When I read this blog, I chuckled to myself at the wonder of it all, and the sweetness of the gestures involved. It left the mystery of itself behind for me to ponder and within which to find meaning. I cherish that kind of reading material.
I know that I’ll return many times to see what’s happening on this site. If you’d like to share in the mystery, come along to the link below. Take a chance. You might find yourself exploring far more than you thought possible in one short session. I’ll hope to see you there.
Until then, a bientot,
