So that's it. Thirty days of blogging. I was rather relieved last night when I remembered November has 30 days not 31! Such a relief to be done.
I still haven't caught up on all the blog posts in my head (I actually can't remember what all of them were any more), and there's a few too many verbal diarrhoea type posts where I just blurt out whatever happened one hour earlier. Then there's the duds, and occasionally there's a deep, meaningful, reflective piece. It's been a moderate effort.
I was in two minds about NaBloPoMo-ing this year. I've hardly blogged since last November and I didn't know if I even wanted to keep blogging. It has been good to get back into it, but it isn't all been positive.
A few weeks before NaBloPoMo I decided to try an internet sabbath or fast on Sundays. I was having moderate success, but even with the occasional sneak peek at facebook, I found my head clearing. I began to look forward to my Sunday 'withdrawing', and I became much more productive in many other ways.
Since I started blogging again I've noticed my head feels a lot more clogged - what to write about today? How to say it? What was it I thought of earlier but can't remember now? My brain became busy and I haven't really enjoyed that. I would go so far as to say my stress levels increased - although that's probably putting too high a value on NaBloPoMo. (We are getting closer to Christmas, and I'm crazy busy with rehearsals and performances... that probably has more to do with the stress levels than anything else!) I'm less productive, I stay up later writing and so I've been more tired than normal this month. It might have been good to get back into blogging, but there have been plenty of cons.
So, the big question. Will I keep blogging now? Maybe, maybe not. (Of course it depends how many comments I get on this post. Ha. Not. But feel free to leave a comment if you've lurked this month... I know you're there, sitemeter told me so!)
We'll see. I guess I'll blog soon - I still have to tell you about getting my ears pierced.
(But if you don't mind, I'm going to be taking tomorrow and Friday off - the rest of my life will be clicking into action again now!)
