My theme for this challenge is family and relations.
Zenith “the culminating point or stage”
Woo Hoo – I made it!
This is the first real blogging challenge I have taken part in and I’m so pleased that I managed to complete it. When I first saw a link to it from a blogging friend I was like, “I couldn’t do that!” Partly that was due to the notion that it was aimed at writers and that’s not something I’m currently aspiring to. But then I did some more checking and realised that all sorts of people join this challenge. I’d already decided that I wanted to get back into the habit of blogging so I decided I would sign up and see how I got on.
I decided to choose a theme as I thought it might be easier to prepare posts in advance in case life got in the way and I didn’t have a lot of time on any given day. In the event I didn’t do much advance blogging but preparing the ideas for the letters did help. Of course there were days when things didn’t quite go to plan but somehow my posts got written and posted.
I’ve tried to visit other blogs but the huge number of participants means I’ve only scratched the surface. As I’m writing this I note that I’m 1035 on the list (I started at 1252) and I’ve managed to check out the first 255. I also started working down from my own entry and I’ve found quite a few interesting blogs that I’m currently following and will continue to do so.
One thing I have found myself doing is trying to ensure my writing is grammatically correct and that it flows. Sometimes I know I can write huge long sentences and it’s not easy to tell what I’m writing about! My husband’s pedantic trait (especially regarding grammar) is rubbing off on me.
I hope to continue blogging on a regular basis and to find interesting topics. There are also a few meme type blogs that I might join in with now the pressure of this challenge is over.
If you’ve been following me, thank you. It means a lot to know I’m not completely in a void with this. This may be the zenith of this particular challenge but tomorrow’s a brand new day. I hope you’ll continue with me on this journey.
