When I first started blogging I'd write a post on a daily basis. It was like an addiction for me, if I didn't post I'd feel all weird and queasy and force myself to write something. I keep up with that pace of writing for my first 5 and half months of blogging. When the December holidays rolled around I decided to take a break. It was both extremely liberating and difficult for me.

Since that time I've tried to post at least three times weekly but I have been lacking in consistentcy. I also think that as a result of this the quality of my writing has significantly sufferred.

In an effort to "get my groove back" I am joining the National Blog Posting Month movement. Every day during the month of Novermber I will be writing a blog post. I am taking this challenge with a host of other people and hopefully this will help me improve both the consistency and quality of my writing. Another perk is that I will qualify for a boatload of prizes.

You can join too, visit NaBloPoMo and sign up. I look forward to seeing what the next month brings......

Ooooo. I remember this. I think I participated last year, lol. Did you mean to say you were gonna take the challenge in March or November?

I might be brave enough to join in again this year.

*waves* long time no read. :-)

i've been slacking lately and i know it's mostly *because* i feel that there will be a lack of quality (mostly because i haven't had too much to say lately as it relates to my usual blogging)

i have been getting back to my usual reading, though, so i can check out these daily posts of yours.

I think that's wonderful and have considered taking the challenge myself. I completely understand how you feel too. For a year and then some I've been writing anywhere from 40 - 70 blog posts a month.

You can do this!

I have had the same sort of blog ride. I started out strong and then my posting frequency has slowly decreased. I signed up for NaBloPoMo today too, I am hoping it will help me get back into my groove. Good Luck!!!

Prizes? Did you say prizes? :) I don't think this time last year I was posting daily - can't remember. This year I post frequently, but often miss during the weekend. Maybe I need to pop on over and check it out. I've heard of it, but thanks for reminding me.

I am doing it too! I have been totally lacking in the blog posting area :)

You are quite the little joiner. I'll check it and your main blog out daily. Thanks for the heads up.

It's interesting that going down to 3 posts a week had a negative impact. I was the same as you when I first started blogging and it was difficult because I had to cook ALL of the time, even though I loved it.

Now, with posting about 3x a week it has taken the pressure off and the fun back in. Good luck!!!!
