Challenges

Well, here we are at last, at the end of November. My own personal NaBloPoMo challenge is now at an end, and I've been thinking about what I want to say, how I feel about it being over. This whole month has been about honing my (limited) writing skills, so I really want to make sure I say this right, that I express my feelings with the right words, that everything is just so.

...

THANK EFFING GOD THAT'S OVER. (I think that sums it up, heh.)

....

Here's the thing: I've got a somewhat obsessive personality (really Tara? You? Obsessive?). I love setting myself up for a fall challenges for myself, I love trying new things (that aren't life-threatening), and when I get enthusiastic about something, I get really enthusiastic.

But then I over-indulge, I overload, and more often than not I kinda fiz out. Not that I'm going to be fizzing out on the blog. If anything, this experience has reminded me of how much I love this medium of communication. But it's also reaffirmed that I have high standards for myself. It's not enough to just put *something* out into this world. I want it to be a *good* something. Something I can read later and be proud of. Something that makes *me* laugh. Something that I'm psyched about sharing with all of you.

Happy Knitting Everyone. I can promise you I definitely WON'T be blogging tomorrow :)

Glad you were able to blog for a month straight. I'm debating what to do with my blog. I still want to keep up my weekly self portraits with the boys, and my random chatter, but I don't think I have time to do it daily anymore. Especially not with a newborn. We'll see what happens..! Good for you for sticking to it for the month of Nov!

See you when you blog again!
