The folks at WordPress created a challenge for bloggers to post content once a day, appropriately titled the Post A Day challenge. Apparently it’s been going on since January to prepare for the National Novel Writing Month in November.
Let me be clear: I have absolutely no intention to write a novel in the month of November. In case you’ve forgotten, I have some other big event happening that month; writing a novel might distract me from the task of keeping a newborn alive and well.
But, why not jump on the Post A Day bandwagon and a daily write-up a go for the month of October? 31 days is pretty noncommittal. Plus, WordPress gave me permission for the posts to be crap. So if you come across mundanities like, “Wow. I just ate half a bag of potato chips” or made up words like “mundanities”, just roll with it. I have a friend that makes up words all the time, and it’s quite fun actually. (Lauren, I’m looking at you!)
So here goes. Post #1. I promise I will try to make them not crappy, but entertaining and witty. That may become harder the bigger and more irritable I become in my last seven weeks of pregnancy (I’m hoping this will provide some sort of distraction), but please stay with me. Soon enough I’ll have cute little baby pictures to post about, and who doesn’t love looking at baby pictures? I just need your support till then.
I also promise that I won’t publicize the posts that will inevitably be crappy. But feel free to look them up on your own. Just remember, I am getting very little sleep these days so my vocabulary and sentence structure may be questionable.
If the thought of reading potentially crappy blog posts with made up words and poor grammar is not that appealing to you, think of it this way: I will certainly make you feel smarter and generally better about yourself. So now I have something to distract myself from my swollen ankles and achy back (plus typing forces me to put down the potato chip bag), and you get to be thankful your mind is still fully in tact. It’s a win-win!
