I very nearly let today pass without a post; it’s currently 10.20pm, and very nearly time for me to go bed. My reasoning behind this was that I’ve already missed two days, so it doesn’t really matter if I miss a third, because I’ve already failed (if I’m going to look at it in terms of success and failure).
But then I decided to write something, and I decided it was going to be one of those rambling posts that might not be all that interesting to read, but is very enjoyable to write. I’ve just written something that absolutely wasn’t a stream of consciousness; it was structured and thought about, and though that’s enjoyable, this will be more so!
I’m trying not to consider BEDM a failure because I’ve missed a couple of days. I have done this in the past; I’ve got so stressed out about absolutely having to post every day that it has taken all of the fun out of the process! So when I realised last week that I wasn’t going to have the time to schedule posts for Saturday and Sunday, I tried to adopt a ‘que sera sera’ attitude to it – it really doesn’t matter all that much.
BEDM has already been a success for me, because it has given me fresh inspiration for my blog, and I have found a new blogging friend! Liz from Distract Me Now Please came along and asked if I wanted to collaborate on something for the ‘collaborate’ prompt of BEDM, and we’re working on something now! It’s probably going to be a bit later than the prompt suggests, but it’s going to happen and I’m excited about it!
I haven’t had a chance to read many blog posts at all in the last couple of weeks; as much as I love reading all the BEDM posts, I just haven’t had the time. I am hoping to have some more time next week, after another working weekend away, when I can spend some time catching up and seeing what I’ve missed.
Though, I have to say, even if I do have the chance to read the blogs, I almost definitely won’t get a chance to comment on them. I try really hard to comment on the blog posts that I love, but ultimately I just find commenting a really time consuming activity! I am going to try harder, because I know how gratifying it is to see a new comment notification. But when I inevitably fail, I’m going to try and at least say hi to the blogger on Twitter. This might be my new method for sharing some blog love!
So in short, there will be plenty more BEDM action on this here blog, but if it’s not every single day, don’t judge me. I’m trying!
