I have been having fun with the blogging world. In my craziness, I have found two interesting projects for the new year. One is the A to Z Challenge, planned for April of 2012. This is, I believe, the third year of this challenge and the first year I plan to participate. The idea is that there are 26 letters in the alphabet and, if you leave out Sundays, you will have just about one letter for every day of the month. The challenge is to daily select a theme based on the each letter of the alphabet, starting with A and running all the way though. Your theme can be anything and your style can be your own. That silly Christmas ABC's set me to thinking about this one and I am already planning my posts. Go here to learn more about this creative endeavor: http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/
As I was checking out a new-to-me blog, I noticed that the blogger had a second blog entitled Keeping My Words. This blog was tied to a website called oneword.com. Here the task is to accept the word for the day and write about it for 60 seconds. See the word and start writing. The wrtiing function stops when you get to 60 seconds. You can edit your writing after the end of the 60 seconds and you are allowed to finish your last sentence but that's it. Fun!
So I wanted to do what this blogger had done and create a second blog for this activity only. GRRRRRRR. I can't get it to lay out as I would like it to. My computer is also running intolerably slowly for me. Perhaps I am just on overload and need to be more patient with myself. That is the story of my life. I have spent the last hour looking at tips on blogging and trying to figure it out but all I have is a headache. I am getting tired and frustrated. Where is my big brother when I need him? Oh, that's right, home with his family!
Time to put the computer away. Time to sit back with a cup of tea, play a low key board game with the family, maybe watch an episode of The Closer, and see if Santa comes tonight. I'll let you know if and when I am successful at any of these endeavors.
