Wrap It Up
…and done. As soon as I publish this post, I will have succeeded in posting 30 Blogs in 30 Days. One post for every day in November, including Thanksgiving. It’s a small victory, but I’ll take it.
This has been an fun experience. The challenge part of it could definitely be felt at points, especially the mornings I woke up with no idea what I would be writing that day. A few surprise posts came out of that. Let’s review.
Here’s the Top Ten Posts from the last 29 days:
- QBQ! The Question Behind the Question (11/08)
- Thou Shall Prosper (11/04)
- Politics of Personal Delusion (11/02)
- Intermission (11/14)
- Becoming a Better Man (11/23)
- Wednesday Sketch Blog (11/10)
- Wednesday Sketch Blog (11/17)
- 30 Blogs in 30 Days (11/01)
- 48 Days to the Work You Love (11/29)
- Wednesday Sketch Blog (11/03)
And, in the interest of fairness, here’s the Bottom Five:
- Get to Know Yourself (11/18)
- Webcomics Wednesday (11/24)
- Raw Evil? (11/21)
- 57 Channels and Nothing On (11/9)
- Happy Turkey Day (11/25)
It has been interesting to see which posts have taken off and which have been mostly ignored. I don’t want to go into boring details, but I confess to being puzzled by some of it. I don’t have any more of a good feeling what I should focus on now than I did when I started. I just know I can whip out posts more regularly. That’s a good thing, because it got me moving. I was just hoping for some external indicator of the direction I should be going in, but I suppose that would have been too easy.
(I will say this, though. Everyone who hasn’t read my Turkey Day post needs to go read it. Seriously. It’s a review of my most favorite food humor book/website ever. The fact that it’s on the bottom of the list is a [expletive][redacted] tragedy. I’m actually a little hurt over it.)
I’ve started to plan out what the next few steps are going to be. I’ve got one more post in me that just came up, and I want to get it out before the end of the week. I’ll also be posting some links on Friday, because, if nothing else, the misery I discover on the web must be shared. Other than that, you aren’t going to hear from me for a few days. I need a break.
More long term, I have a couple of goals. I want to elaborate on my position from the Intermission post, because there has been some interest in me doing so. I will definitely finish going through Thou Shall Prosper chapter by chapter, because I’ve enjoyed doing that. There will also be a few more book reviews coming. Finally, starting next weekend, I’m going to turn the Wednesday Sketch Blog into the Saturday Sketch Blog, because I think that will work better with my schedule.
Beyond that, I’m not sure. I’m thinking about exploring the fascination we have with removing day to day risk from our lives, no matter what the cost (that’s partly driven by the latest TSA actions, but not entirely). I’m contemplating whether I could write and draw a webcomic of my own. Then there’s all the personal finance stuff I am continuing to devour and work through, and how that’s affecting my life.
So, those of you have been around for the past few weeks, what do you think? What have I done well? What would you like to see more of? Where could I do better?
No matter what you think, thanks for reading. I sincerely appreciate the time of yours that I’ve received.
