What have I learned from daily blogging for NaMoBloPo this month?
That I am a failure.
More accurately, I lack follow through. That or my life gets in the way of blogging.
I don’t really think that’s a bad thing though.
You see. I love blogging because it’s fun, it allows me to express myself, wrestle with my personal finance demons, and share some of the insights I have learned and mistakes I have made that may (hopefully) be helpful to someone out there in internet land. I started this blog because I was always talking about mystery shopping or a cool app I have that you can make money off of or how to get a great deal on your cell phone bill. I am always talking about personal finance so I might as well write about it and put all my thoughts in one place.
But the other trick about personal finance blogging is that no one wants to hear you complain about how worried about bills you are or that you are trying to figure out how to buy Christmas gifts for everyone for $200. So sometimes its best to not saying if you don’t have anything nice to say. Or, alternatively, maybe it’s time to be more real.
The exercise/challenge of writing daily on my blog has not worked out far this month for me as I am 4 for 8 on posts. So I am posting every other day. But hey, that’s more than it was two weeks ago so that’s progress for me.
My excuses for not writing every day thus far:
1. Sleep wins since it’s already 11pm and I am just now cracking open this laptop
2. My husband wins since he just brought home a new Redbox DVD
3. It’s hard to write from a hospital and find something positive to say
Let’s try again next week.
